We know smoking pot can make you sleepy and hungry, but can it make you horny? It appears so. Researchers aren’t sure why, exactly, but they say that there appears there could be a connection between the two.
In one recent study, investigators found that men and women who used marijuana daily had about 20% more sex during the previous four weeks than their peers who skipped the smoke.
Sex therapist Amanda Pasciucco says it may not be about the drug itself, but the calm that comes with it. "People who use marijuana may have more sex because they put less pressure on themselves when they are high, so they don't have the same performance anxiety as those who are sober," she explains. “A small amount of marijuana may also help increase your ability to communicate your preferences to your partner.”
