Let your sex life go to pot.
Well, that’s the conclusion of a new study which found that women who consume cannabis on a regular basis report having better orgasms, higher arousal and more sexual satisfaction overall.
The study, whose authors included members of the Stanford Medical Center’s urology department, involved conducting a survey of 452 ladies who responded to an invitation distributed at a chain of marijuana retail stores.
The women were asked to fill out a Female Sexual Function Index (FSFI), a questionnaire designed to assess their sexual activity over the previous four weeks. It scores six specific categories: desire, arousal, lubrication, orgasm, satisfaction and pain.
Generally, a higher FSFI score indicates better sexual function, while a lower score points to sexual dysfunction.
The researchers then compared the frequency of weed use to each participant’s FSFI score, and found that women who got high more often reported a better time in the bedroom.
“Our results demonstrate that increasing frequency of cannabis use is associated with improved sexual function and is associated with increased satisfaction, orgasm, and sexual desire,” the authors of the study wrote.
