You’re getting ready for a night of unbridled passion with the love of your life – or maybe you’re just planning on a quickie after swiping right an hour ago.
Either way, you’ve made sure you’re ready. You’ve showered, you’ve put on the right clothes (take that to mean whatever you’d like), and you’ve made sure that you have protection close by.
Oh – and naturally, you’ve dug into your stash to make sure you can both stay happily medicated.
There’s actually a lot of evidence that proves that’s a smart idea. Smoking up can enhance both arousal and sexual satisfaction. That is, as long as you’ve chosen the right strain for the occasion.
Weed and Sex
Cultures all over the world have been using cannabis as an aphrodisiac, and to boost libido and improve the quality of their sexual experiences, for millennia. It’s been used in Indian tantric sex practices for well over a thousand years. In nations as “off the beaten track” as Uganda, it’s been a common treatment for sexual dysfunction for centuries.
There’s also been modern scientific research examining the effects of cannabinoids before and during sex, and it shows what most us would expect. Pot can increase the strength of women’s orgasms, relieve the anxiety many people feel when doing the nasty, and increase the body’s sensitivity so that physical sensations are enhanced. And needless to say, the general sensation of euphoria that weed often induces is never a bad thing in bed.
Is there a “best” strain for male and female arousal? Well, sort of. Read on.
