Wondering how to have the best night ever with your darling? It's no secret that cannabis relaxes you and makes everything feel like all is right with the world, but did you know it can actually make sex better?
Yes, marijuana actually has the power to improve your sex life! We all know getting high is fun, and actually has some health benefits, but throw in a few ultra-intense orgasms and it's a crazy that everyone isn't smoking every single day.
Cannabis really is a beautiful thing. It makes you feel amazing and, yet, you never get a hangover like you do with booze.
By now you must be wondering, how can it possibly make sex better?
Let me blow your mind with the enlightening and ever-so-tantalizing facts about cannabis and your sex life.
1. Cannabis can help you achieve orgasms
A lot of women have trouble achieving orgasms. In fact, about 1 in 3 women find it very difficult to orgasm during sex.
Luckily, your old pal pot is here to save the day. And here's how:
As Dr. Mitch Earleywine, professor of psychology at the State University of New York at Albany told NY Mag: "That CB1 receptor seems to be involved in improved tactile sensations and general euphoria." Meaning cannabis has the power to enhance your physical stimulation and give you a serious body high.
2. Cannabis increases sexual stamina
Who doesn't want to last longer in bed? You become the superman of sexual partners when you introduce it into the picture. According to a study cited on About, 75% of participants reported an increase in the duration of their sexual encounters when they smoked cannabis beforehand.
3. Cannabis makes orgasms more intense
You know what is better than an orgasm? A really, really intense, earth-shattering, life-altering orgasm. Cannabis has the power to make your orgasmic experience unbelievably mind-blowing.
As a marijuana loving man noted to NY Mag's Maureen O'Connor, "Pot tends to make time move slowly for me. Orgasms seem to last for 30 seconds and are incredibly intense. The best orgasms I've ever had have been while stoned, whether with another person or solo."
Unlike with alcohol, which can take the wind out of your sexy sails, cannabis actually does the opposite. It strengthens it!
4. Cannabis is good for relationships
Couples who smoke together are couples who fight the least. It would appear that marijuana might be the key ingredient to having a happy, healthy relationship with your partner.
According to The Daily Mail, the use of cannabis in relationships is actually linked to lower rates of domestic violence. "Findings suggest that marijuana use is predictive of lower levels of aggression towards one's partner."
According to the Washington Post, the University of Buffalo studied over 600 couples ranging as far back as 1996 and found that couples who smoke cannabis really do fight less.
It brings couples closer because it chills people out. No one wants to have an argument when they're feeling mad mellow and relaxed.
5. Cannabis is an aphrodisiac
It has long been known as an aphrodisiac. It has the power to enhance sexual desire.
Psychiatrist, Dr. Lester Grinspoon told High Times that cannabis "greatly enhances the sexual experience for many people. There's no doubt that when people are high, they're more sensitive to their sexual feelings and urges."
So, next time instead of eating oysters with bae to get in the mood, smoke a joint instead. But maybe still have the oysters because we all know the munchies are a real struggle.
6. Cannabis relieves tension
Everyone knows that smoking cannabis has the ability to relieve your aching anxieties. This can be especially useful when you're about to get naked.
It can relax you and put you in the right mindset to get it on. All the horrible sexual tension that plagued you suddenly washes away, leaving you relaxed and ready.
According to Medical Daily, marijuana is like nature's Xanax: "It has a calming and relaxing effect that must be associated with decreased anxiety."
The effect marijuana has on the brain can be used to treat chronic anxiety problems. Cannabis can "exert an effect on stress levels through the endocannabinoid system, which regulates pain and appetite. THC interacts with anandamide, which is a neurotransmitter, creating a happy, relaxed feeling, as well as sleepiness."
So, after you decide to indulge, you're going to be ready to indulge in a little more fun once that old Mary Jane kicks in. When you're high, you're relaxed - and relaxed sex is good sex.
