How Does Weed Affect Your Sexual Life?

With the recent legalization of marijuana in some places and the development of sex-specific THC products like personal lubricant, more individuals are becoming interested in the relationship between marijuana and sex. Here's what we know so far about how marijuana can alter your sexual life.


Many marijuana users claim that it relaxes them and reduces their nervousness and sexual inhibitions. They express a desire in participating in things that they may have been afraid to undertake while sober. The power of anxiety to destroy a person's sex life should not be underestimated. A little anxiety relief can be all you need to improve your sex life.

Too much marijuana, like too much wine, can have the opposite effect. One of the most conventional reactions to marijuana is paranoia, which doesn't exactly make sex enjoyable. Others discover that rather than making them feel comfortable and unrestrained, cannabis makes them feel uneasy and trapped in their own thoughts.

The effect of weed on your sexual inhibitions is likely to be the same as the effect of weed on you in general. You'll probably be more open to sex while high if you're comfortable and joyful on pot. It's probably not a good idea to smoke pot for the express purpose of decreasing your sexual inhibitions if it makes you uneasy and paranoid.


The propensity of marijuana to relax inhibitions can lead to sexual safety concerns. While high, you may be more willing to engage in risky behaviours. You can also neglect to follow standard safety precautions, such as using condoms. Consent can also become hazy if you're not in the correct frame of mind to fully agree to something or verify that your partner is on board as well. You should avoid having high sex unless you're with a trusted partner if cannabis tends to put you into a different stratosphere.

Sex Drive

There hasn't been a lot of research into the link between sex drive and marijuana use. Many people find that having less anxiety and less inhibitions makes them much more interested in sex, therefore cannabis appears to improve their sex drive anecdotally. However, smoking too much marijuana can reduce your overall sex drive. When you're experiencing weed-induced laziness, it's difficult to get motivated for physical sex exertion.

Sexual Frequency

Marijuana use was linked to a higher sexual frequency in both men and women, according to a recent study from Stanford University School of Medicine. Researchers discovered that those who used pot had a 20% higher rate of sexual activity than those who didn't. The rise was observed across all demographics, including age, race, socioeconomic status, and educational attainment. Of course, correlation does not imply causality.

Enjoyment and Orgasm

Anecdotal evidence suggests that consuming marijuana during intercourse makes people feel more playful, open, and connected to their partners. Smoking pot and having sex with your spouse might be just as bonding as a smoking weed with your friends. Some people believe that cannabis enhances their sensory experience, making touching and caressing more delightful. Foria, a well-known cannabis product, claims to make it easier for women to achieve orgasm merely by applying the THC-infused lubricant during intercourse.

Unfortunately, the news isn’t as rosy for men. Multiple studies have linked daily marijuana usage with erectile problems and an inability to reach orgasm. It should be noted that the aforementioned Stanford University study, which is one of the most thorough studies to date, found that marijuana usage did not impair sexual functioning.


Pot users wanting to conceive should be aware that regular marijuana use (more than once per week) has been shown in small trials to reduce sperm counts by up to 30%. The interaction of THC with sperm was thought to be the reason for the decline, according to the researchers. A separate study discovered that THC in a woman's system can alter any sperm that enters her reproductive system, even if she is the one who has smoked. Researchers have been hesitant to call this a clear cause and effect, but unless you're smoking pot for medical reasons, you might want to cut back until you're pregnant. (Of course, pregnant women should not smoke.)

Relaxation and Sleep Quality

For most people, the greatest impediment to sexual engagement is a lack of energy. It's incredibly difficult to get into the mood when you're fatigued. Weed can not only help you sleep better in the long run, but it can also help you relax in the present moment. That can be enough to kickstart your sex life for many people.
