Whether you smoke a little or a lot, the chances are good that you’ve at least wondered about having sex while you’re high, if you haven’t already tried it. But can marijuana actually enhance your sexual desire or pleasure? And other than just generally making you feel good, can marijuana actually be used in sexual activities to make it even more fun with your partner?
Pot for pleasure?
While logic does rule that if marijuana makes you feel good, then having sex will also be more
pleasurable while high. That’s true, and there’s scientific evidence to back it up, showing that the cannabinoid receptor in the body’s nervous system provide an increased sensitivity to touch, and can also make a person more euphoric in general. THC, the active drug found in marijuana, activates this receptor and so, sex can definitely be even more pleasurable while a person is high. Marijuana has also been linked to an increase in the number of orgasms one can have, as well as the intensity of orgasm achieved.
Best strains for sex
Of course, not all cannabis is created equal and different strains will have different results on your sexual desire and/or pleasure. Jack Herer, Trainwreck, White LSD, and Auto Lemon Haze have all been found to be especially good sex strains. If you can’t find those, look for a sativa or hybrid mix, as these will make you feel happier and more energetic. If you choose a strain that’s indica-dominant on the other hand, you may just end up feeling tired and burnt out.
Using Marijuana during sex
There are a number of creative ways couples can use weed to enhance their sexual experience.
- “Shot-gunning”. With this type of smoking, one person puts the lit end of a joint between their teeth while their partner holds the other joint between their lips as they normally would. The person holding the lit ends blows onto it while the person pulls from the other end, thereby forcing the smoke into their mouth. Because the intensity of the force is more than regularly smoking a joint, so is the resulting high.
- Edibles. Chocolate that’s been pot-infused can be used for dipping strawberries and then feeding them to each other; and pot brownies can also be a tasty aphrodisiac. Get creative in what you feed each other!
- Topical ointments. More and more companies are starting to produce THC-based lubricants that are edible and can also provide a nice high.
You won’t know if combining sex and weed is for you until you try it. But there is scientific evidence to prove that if you do, you could up enjoying yourself even more and soon start finding your own creative ways to enjoy sex and pot with your partner.
