Some people swear by having a toke before ‘bedtime activities,’ claiming cannabis enhances their sexual encounters. So, is there anything to this? The experts weighed in during a recent roundtable arranged by CNN.
It’s Probably An Indirect Thing
Good sex has a lot to do with mood, said sex therapist Amanda Pasciucco. Less anxiety and more self-confidence are two of the ingredients that lead to more and better sexual experiences.
“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,” Pasciucco told CNN.
And when people are relaxed, pleasurable sensations are increased while pain is subdued, according to Peter Barsoom, Founder of 1906, which makes premium cannabis edibles.
“This can lead to increased arousal and make sex even more enjoyable.”
