It's the classic formula to an ordinary weekend, get high - have sex. It's easy and apparently so much better. People have raved about sex after being stoned, some say it's the best, others think there couldn't be a worse way to do it.
So, I spoke to some stoners and asked them what they think. Their answers helped understand the whole fad better.
"It's so much better when you're high, for me, being high helps me let loose. I'm not nervous anymore, and my anxiety takes a backseat - it's easy to be intimate without all the fear and nervousness." Akash, 20 said.
"All your senses are heightened, and everything just feels better. I am fully in the moment, present mentally and physically, so sex is so much better because it's like some elevated level of sex." Mrunal, 24.
This feeling of being in the moment could stem from THC’s inhibition of the prefrontal cortex and hippocampus, which are involved in memory, especially emotional memory. In fact, most sexual desires and intimate thoughts and feelings come through the THC in weed, when you're high.
"Initially, I used to get high and goof around with my boyfriend, but as time passed, I liked to be by myself more than having someone constantly touching me. And it annoys me and I feel weird then end up getting a bad trip. So I really don't like it. " Aishwarya, 20 said.
Along the same lines, Neha told us - "It was honestly, just about average. I feel like when I'm high, I want to refrain from touch, it makes me feel weird and intrusive. And every time I have had sex when I was high, I have ended up projectile puking. So it's really just better if you do it when you're sober."
Hypersensitivity and alertness because of the weed, can make you feel uncomfortable with long periods of touch and any constant movement can trigger something similar to motion sickness, which is why you may puke.
"Weed gives better orgasms. They feel more full and pleasurable - it may just be because of the increased level of sensitivity, but it sure helps, plus I always orgasm when I'm high - not so much when I'm sober," said Anoushka, 20.
Weed’s relaxing effects help many people take the scenic route to orgasm. But it isn't all flowers and rainbows, weed can cause drying of the mucous membranes, which might mean vaginal dryness. Men who consume weed on a regular basis might also suffer from a case of “Stoner Boner”—a weaker erection.
And another study in the Journal of Sexual Medicine found that men who smoked daily were more likely to experience inability to orgasm, reach orgasm too quickly, and reach orgasm too slowly compared to those who never smoked. So, always remember that being high is fun, but balance is key.
