Stanford Study Confirms Cannabis Users Have More Sex

However, Eisenberg has mentioned that the study should not be misinterpreted as something that implies that if a person smokes more marijuana then they will have more sex.

"Usually, people assume the more frequently you smoke, the worse it could be when it came to sex, but in fact, we learned the opposite was true", Eisenberg told CNN. At this time, 29 states have declared marijuana legal for recreational or medicinal purposes, and estimates suggest that more than 22 million Americans use pot, the researchers said in background information. Overall, pot smokers had 20 percent more sex than non-smokers.

To arrive at an accurate determination of marijuana's effect on intercourse frequency, the researchers turned to the US National Survey of Family Growth, sponsored by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

"I think if you asked a man or a woman, 20 more times to have sex over a year, that would seem like a lot", Dr Eisenberg said. Among men, marijuana users had sex 6.9 times a month, compared with 5.6 times for nonusers.

Of that, Rs. 1.75 lakh crore relates to just 12 cases, which have been referred to National Company Law Tribunal. Effective and targeted government spending is the main priority of the government.

He also warned people against establishing a causal relationship between marijuana use and people's sex habits, but added that the study does hint at one. "If anything, it's associated with increased coital frequency", said the study's senior author, Michael Eisenberg, MD, assistant professor of urology. The study, which analyzes data from 50,000 reproductive-aged Americans, is the first in the United States to examine the relationship between sex and marijuana use at population scale. The survey, which provides data pertaining to family structures, sexual practices and childbearing, reflects the overall demographic features of the USA population. Meanwhile, women who consumed marijuana daily reported an average of 7.1 sexual episodes over the same period. About 24.5 percent of men and 14.5 percent of women reported having used marijuana.

Moreover, Eisenberg said, the positive association between marijuana use and coital frequency was independent of demographic, health, marital or parental status.

For instance, people who are naturally inclined to have more frequent sex may be predisposed to marijuana use, rather than the other way around.

The trend also held up when the researchers accounted for survey respondents' use of other drugs, like cocaine and alcohol. He said this independence suggests the positive correlation can not be attributed to a general tendency of people with fewer inhibitions to indulge in both drugs and more sex than their peers.
