Study: Stoners are more likely to say they are sexually satisfied
A study, the first of its kind, published last month in the journal Sexual Medicinesuggests that women who regularly use cannabis have higher rates of sexual satisfaction.
This study published last month suggests that women who use cannabis regularly have better orgasms, greater excitement and greater sexual satisfaction in general. This study is the first of its kind to use a validated questionnaire to assess the association between female sexual function and aspects of cannabis use.
The study involved 452 women aged 30 to 49, 72,8% of whom used cannabis more than six times per week. Most of the women (81,6%) were in a relationship and 46,7% of the participants usually used cannabis while smoking flowers.
The researchers used the validated index of female sexual function, and women who reported consuming more cannabis had higher FSFI (Female Sexual Function Index) scores. Additionally, women who increased their intake only once per week reported an increase in total FSFI, including in areas of desire, arousal, orgasm, and satisfaction.
For each additional increase in consumption per week, the researchers found that the likelihood of reporting female sexual dysfunction decreased by 21%. The study found that neither the method of consumption nor the type of cannabis consumed had an impact on sexual function.
The authors note that "the exact mechanisms by which cannabis can increase sexual function in women are unknown" but "the endocannabinoid system has been postulated to be involved in female sexual function ”. They point out that previous studies "have shown that increased amounts of endogenous cannabinoids ... are associated with increased sexual arousal."
“As many patients use cannabis to reduce their anxiety, it is possible that a reduction in anxiety associated with a sexual encounter could improve experiences and lead to improved satisfaction, orgasm and desire. Likewise, THC can alter the perception of time, which can prolong feelings of sexual pleasure ”. Evaluation of the association of cannabis on female sexual function with the female sexual function index
Last year, cannabis company Eaze teamed up with vibrator maker Lioness to produce a report that suggested cannabis improves sex life. The study found that 85% of respondents were more satisfied with their orgasms during solo sessions and 79% during couples sessions. Additionally, 84% of those surveyed said cannabis improved their sex toy experience during solo sessions, while 79% agreed, but for couples sessions.
Eaze and Lioness also found that cannabis had a dramatic effect on the duration of sexual activity both during solo sessions (64%) and during couple sessions (73%).
A study of 2017 has shown that cannabis users have, on average, about 20% more heterosexual sex than non-users. This study found that women who used cannabis daily had sex an average of 7,1 times in the previous four weeks, compared to six times for women who had not used cannabis in the previous year. .
