Marijuana may improve women’s enjoyment of sex

Marijuana may improve womn’s enjoyment of sex


 About one-third of U.S. women have used marijuana before sex,
a small study suggests, and those who do report increased desire and
better orgasms.

Marijuana
use has been on the rise among U.S. adults as a growing number of
states pass laws legalizing it for medical and recreational purposes,
researchers note in Sexual Medicine. Although marijuana is thought to
act on the cannabinoid receptor in the brain, which is involved in
sexual function, little research to date has examined the drug’s impact
on sexual health, the study team notes.
The researchers surveyed
373 female patients at an obstetrics and gynecology practice in an
academic medical center in Saint Louis, Missouri. Overall, 127 women, or
34 percent, reported using marijuana before sexual activity.
Women
who used marijuana before sex were twice as likely as those who didn’t
to say they had “satisfactory” orgasms, the survey found. And women who
regularly used the drug were twice as likely as occasional users to have
satisfying orgasms.
“What’s new about this study is that
marijuana is framed as being useful for sex,” said Joseph Palamar, a
population health researcher at NYU Langone Medical Center in New York
City who wasn’t involved in the study.
“Typically, drugs are
investigated as risk factors for sex. I think this paper signifies that
times are changing,” Palamar said by email.
Like alcohol and
many recreational drugs, marijuana has long been linked to an increased
risk of sexual activity among teens, and some previous research has also
tied marijuana to unsafe sex and higher rates of sexually transmitted
diseases.
In
the current study, however, Dr. Becky Lynn of Saint Louis University
School of Medicine and colleagues focused on the connection between
marijuana and women’s satisfaction with their sex lives, sex drive,
orgasms, lubrication and pain during intercourse. Lynn didn’t respond to
requests for comment.
Overall, 197 women in the study, or about
52 percent, didn’t use marijuana at all. Another 49 women, or 13
percent, used the drug but didn’t indulge before sex.
Women who
did use marijuana before sex appeared to have more lubrication and less
pain during intercourse than women who didn’t, but the differences were
too small to rule out the possibility they were due to chance.
Compared
to occasional marijuana users, women who regularly used the drug
reported better lubrication, and increased satisfaction with their sex
lives – but here, too, the differences were too small to rule out the
possibility of chance.
Beyond its small size, one limitation of
the study is that it wasn’t a controlled experiment designed to prove
whether or how marijuana might directly impact sexual health. It’s also
unclear whether women smoked pot or used another form of the drug, or if
this was the only substance women were using that might alter their
sexual function.
Another drawback is that the study included
mostly white women who were married or in relationships, making it
possible the results don’t represent what all women would experience.
And, the study didn’t explicitly spell out what type of “sex” it was
asking about, making it difficult to say for sure what types of activity
might be impacted by marijuana use.
“It is unknown how
experienced these women were with marijuana or in combining marijuana
and sex. We also don’t know who intentionally combined marijuana with
sex,” Palamar said.
“A lot more research is needed as very few studies have focused on the positives of marijuana and sex,” Palamar added.

Nicki Minaj agrees “Essence” should be song of the year at the Grammys

Published

American superstar rapper, Nicki Minaj, shares the same sentiments as myriads of Wizkid fans and well-wishers worldwide, in that she concurs to the argument the trendsetting crossover record-breaking single from Wizkid’s 2020 released “Made In Lagos” album, Essence should be in the conversation for the coveted “Record of the Year” plaque at this year’s Grammy Awards.

Although “Essence” did not receive the much desired nomination in the category for “Record of the Year” at the 2022 Grammy Awards, it did get a nod for Best Global Music Performance, the first of its kind.

Irrespective of the snub, Nicki whilie on Joe Budden TV (YouTube) as a guest on the special episode tagged A Conversation With Nicki Minaj & Joe Budden agreed with the host (Joe Budden) when he said “We need people on the Grammy board that know that “Essence” was song of the year” with an exclamatory “Right! Right!” response. She even proffered, “We should have our own Grammy Board“, in support of many and the popular believe that Black Americans or black artistes in general are always stereotyped to a particular category at the award show, if indeed they made it to the top categories, they barely win; Nicki Minaj does not have a Grammy Award herself and that is still a shock to many, especially when considering her refined catalogue of music.
