Marijuana is known for making food taste better , but a new study suggests getting high could make sex feel better, too. Published this month in the journal Science Medicine , researchers found that women who used weed before sex had higher sex drives, less pain during the encounter, and more satisfying orgasms compared to women who abstained. They also found that women who frequently used weed at any point, not just before sex, were more likely to have enjoyable orgasms compared to those who rarely got high. For the sake of this study, people who got high at least weekly were considered "frequent users" while "rare users" only got high several times in a year. The study authors conclude that marijuana impacts sexual satisfaction, but aren't quite sure why. However, they theorize it could be due to lowered stress, anxiety, and inhibitions, which make people more likely to experiment in bed.
