Many people turn to alcohol to overcome the nervousness and shyness that can accompany romantic relationships, especially when trying to find a mate.
Yet booze has its drawbacks in the bedroom, effecting drive and performance.
Now that cannabis consumption is coming out of the closet, it’s finding its way into the bedrooms and between the sheets of romantic partners.
But does weed really lead to better sex?
Ask around and you’re likely to find that people who have experimented with marijuana and lovemaking have some intensely pleasurable experiences when they’re high.
Given the remarkable power of cannabis as a medical treatment, it may have the capacity to unlock unheard of potentials of human sexuality.
The ways cannabis affects the human body make it a promising aphrodisiac, and one that is far less likely to affect sex drive and performance than other substances people turn to to break down the barriers to bedroom bliss.
THC is a vasodilator (that’s why your eyes get red when you smoke), and dilated capillaries in your erogenous zones means more blood flow and more oxygen to the area, which increases sensation.
Just like sexuality, everybody—and every body—is unique when it comes to the experience and affects of marijuana on the body. The variables include everything from one’s weight to their tolerance level, to strain and even the method of consuming cannabis.
It’s attention to those details and how their variations excite or subdue different never centers that can help lovers explore each other’s bodies. “Mapping” how cannabis excited different parts of your body, or doesn’t, is a great way to get to know your partner and what makes your sex drive purr.
