Science Suggests Stoners Have More Sex

20 percent more than never-users. 

Scientists have recently discovered a positive association between marijuana use and sexual frequency, according to a study published today by The Journal of Sexual Medicine. Essentially, stoners are having more sex than non-smokers.

According to the report, Scientists Andrew J. Sun, MD, and Michael L. Eisenberg, MD, analyzed data from the National Survey of Family Growth to evaluate whether a relationship actually exists between marijuana and a user's sexual frequency.

The data found that women who frequently smoked marijuana had sex over seven times per month. Conversely, those who had never used the devil's lettuce only had sex six times. For men, marijuana users clocked in, also, at seven times per month, while never-users had sex around five times.

"What we found was compared to never-users, those who reported daily use had about 20 percent more sex," Dr. Eisenberg said to National Public Radio. "So over the course of a year, they're having sex maybe 20 more times."

While this information is groundbreaking for stoners everywhere, Eisenberg and Sun concluded that the exact effects of marijuana use on sexual function warrant further study.
