The history between cannabis and sex extends back as far when the Hindus would use hashish to achieve a state of Kama also known as pleasure. Does cannabis enhance the sexual experience? Well, it’s difficult to argue with a culture that wrote the book of Kama Sutra.
Cannabis and Sex Share Pleasure Principles
Marijuana and sex are gifts of nature, we enjoy them because biology and evolution have equipped us to do so. Just as our bodies contain pleasure systems which reward us for sex; our brains contain neurocellular circuitry which can only be activated by substances with THC’s molecular structure.
This makes the marijuana high a unique constellation of feelings, and there are only two sources for the substances which activate THC’s very own neuroreceptor. Our brain is one source: it generates a neurochemical very similar to THC, called anandamide. Translated, the word means bliss. The only other source for this bliss-producing substance is the cannabis plant.
Being stoned or sexually aroused both produce similar physiological responses, such as increased heart rate, heightened sensitivity, changes in blood flow and respiration, relaxation, an acutely altered state of consciousness.
Sex and pot provide us with euphoric peak experiences, unity of body and mind, a healing escape from routine existence.
Cannabis also enhances the enjoyment of sex – on the one hand it gives an exquisite sensitivity, but on the other hand it postpones orgasm: in part by distracting me with the profusion of image passing before my eyes. The actual duration of orgasm seems to lengthen greatly, but this may be the usual experience of time expansion which comes with cannabis smoking.

Cannabis, Viagara for Females
With a life that is bombarded by responsibilities and time constraints; many psychologists believe that these life stressors rob females of a healthy sex life. Sexual dysfunction is a broad-based term for which there is no single reason, nor magic bullet to cure. Pain during intercourse, spousal conflicts, childbirth, and a host of other ailments all play a role in the female libido and her ability to feel ‘turned on.’
Jill Lopez is a newlywed who works in advertising sales. She also recently started a master’s degree program. The course load coupled with her regular work schedule has her feeling ‘stressed and tired.’
That stress has overflowed into her sex life. Jill openly admits that using marijuana helps her feel less anxious about her day-to-day routine and increases her libido. ‘I feel relaxed and stimulated at the same time,’ she says.
Cannabis and Sex, Cure for Self Consciousness
Marijuana and sex? Oh they are terrifically compatible. Marijuana is a wonderful way to lower your inhibitions and just relax. As anyone who uses it recreationally knows … You know, not being so self-conscious about the things that you are doing and being naked in front of somebody else? I think that can be a wonderful tool. – Dan Savage, Huff Post
The lowering of the inhibitions, for some it leads to the lowering of their pants.
Myth Debunked, Cannabis Does Not Reduce Testosterone
Dr. Robert Block at the University of Iowa disputes the commonly held notion that marijuana alters the level of testosterone. The study contradicted a widely publicized 1974 study by Dr. R.C. Kolodony, which reported decreased testosterone levels in men who smoked marijuana chronically.
The U. of Iowa study found that chronic marijuana use had no effect on testosterone, follicle stimulating hormone, prolactin and cortisol in men or women. Noting that six other studies had failed to show lowered testosterone levels in men,
Dr. Block concluded: ‘It appears that marijuana, even heavy use of the kind that’s typical in the United States, doesn’t alter testosterone levels.”
The myth of cannabis being a threat to fertility is just one of many marijuana myths and propaganda that have been debunked.
Another Level of Experimentation, Cannabis as Orgasmic Lubricant
Stoner girls working on a California cannabis farm spoke of inserting raw resin glands, bubblehash, and processed solvent hashish into the vagina and anus so they experience soaring, wildly sexual, multi-orgasmic peaks.
We take the resins and put it inside of our vaginas,” she said. “It’s a direct channel into your sexual energy circuits.”
Another girl chimed in, “THC absorbs through mucous membranes, buddy, and there’s nothing more absorptive than the inside of a vagina.”
”It’s nothing like eating a pot brownie, taking a bong hit, using marijuana tincture, or any other marijuana use,” a girl explained. ”It’s a rad body high that’s a guaranteed aphrodisiac. It starts in your crotch, warms your whole body, makes you want to have sex all day and night, and lulls you to sleep hours later. Your orgasms are timeless, constant, out of this world.” – Viagra Cannabis, Big Buds Magazine
The women advised others to make sure to only insert pure bubblehash or other resins-only marijuana material that’s totally clean, no pesticides, molds, mildews or other debris.
The method seemed simple: Start with a small amount of hashish, honey oil, dabs, or other potent THC extracts…maybe a gram or two. Wait a while to see how it affects her, then add some more if she’s ready for it. Here’s the how-to advice one of the girls gave:
Put the hashish on your clitoris and inside you, focusing on applying it to your G-spot. Then lay back with your legs elevated for a half an hour or more so the hashish doesn’t ooze out. My guy says having sex with me when the resins are in there also gets him high by transferring into his penis, and when he performs oral sex on me!
A call to a female marijuana expert confirmed that resin glands and extracted cannabis concentrates transfer THC into the bloodstream via the vagina, the mouth (sublingual), and the anus.
She also confirmed that vaginal, sublingual and anal THC insertion effects differ from those produced by any other method of ingesting THC. And as an added bonus, she explained, preliminary medical research indicates that cannabis extracts administered through the vagina and anus have anti-bacterial and positive hormonal effects!
