Original Post: Marijuana Moment: Marijuana Enhances Sex And Masturbation, Survey Finds

[Canniseur: Scientific studies have told us that cannabis can be good for our sex lives. Quantification isn’t the same as qualification from those who consume. And this survey certainly seems to qualify cannabis as a terrific enhancer for our sex lives.]

Whether you’re partnered up or riding solo, marijuana can enhance the longevity, frequency and quality of sexual pleasure, reports a new survey out on Tuesday.

Though a number of recent scientific studies have found consuming cannabis can improve bedroom activities for men and women, a report from Lioness, the makers of the world’s first smart vibrator, and cannabis delivery service Eaze offers a more in-depth look at how the substance can affect people’s sex lives.

“Cannabis can enhance your orgasms no matter who you are,” the report states. “While a satisfying sex life is the result of many variables, cannabis can increase the length, frequency of, and quality of your orgasms and pleasure sessions whether you’re single or married, solo or with a partner, young adult or silver fox.”

The report is the result of an online survey shared with 432 Lioness newsletter subscribers in North America between June 23 and July 1. Researchers also included perspective from 19 Lioness users who documented their experiences with different cannabis products using their device. Products included THC- and CBD-infused vaporizers, edibles and lubricants.

“As cannabis becomes more and more a part of daily lives,” said Peter Gigante, Head of Data Research at Eaze, in an emailed statement, “we hope the key insights in this report help consumers understand its various benefits in the bedroom, and encourage people to explore it as knowledgeably as possible.”

Here are the different ways cannabis makes sex better, according to the report:

Longer Sessions

Participants reported that sex without marijuana consumption lasted 34.6 minutes with a partner, 19.2 minutes on their own and 12.6 minutes with the Lioness smart vibrator. When they consumed, however, 73 percent said their partner sessions went longer while 64 percent reported spending more time pleasuring themselves. Married couples were more likely to spend more time enjoying one another while consuming cannabis than single people, and the product participants reported having “the most significant impact on orgasm length and frequency” were THC edibles.

More Orgasms

Nearly half of participants said they experienced more orgasms when they consumed marijuana, whether it was during masturbation or partnered sex (43 percent and 48 percent, respectively). THC edibles were once again found to be associated with an increase in orgasms.

Easier to Reach Orgasm

Sixty-three percent of participants said cannabis made reaching an orgasm easier when they were solo, while 71 percent reported the same when they were with a partner. “Respondents found that cannabis helped shorten the time it took to achieve orgasm, with or without a partner,” the report states. “The anecdotal and empirical evidence we collected indicates that the effects of cannabis helped shorten the time between the start of the session and the orgasm.”

Additionally, according to the report, “Lioness data found that the duration of each orgasm itself increased by 14% and 46%, and was associated with greater self-reported masturbation satisfaction. For reference, the average orgasm in the study lasted for 33.6 seconds with cannabis.”

More Satisfaction

Eight-five percent and 79 percent of respondents said cannabis helped them feel more satisfied with the quality of their orgasms during solo and partnered sessions, respectively. Using sex toys while consuming cannabis also became more pleasurable for a majority of participants, whether they used them on their own or with a partner. That includes 87 percent of married people.

Researchers also took a closer look at how THC and CBD impact sex. According to the report‘s findings, both cannabinoids enhanced the sexual experience. CBD products, however, helped participants reach orgasms “easier” while THC products led to more “intense and satisfying” sessions.

In a statement emailed to Marijuana Moment, Lioness co-founder and CEO Liz Klinger talked about the importance of normalizing such conversations around sexual health and pleasure. “For far too long, the benefits of sexual pleasure and cannabis have been overlooked and underfunded due to taboo and fear,” she said. “The goal of this report is to continue to drive conversation and education about the effects of cannabis use in the bedroom, and we’re really excited to share some of the unique findings for both solo and partner sessions.”
