The Yale School of Medicine decided to examine how men who smoke cannabis perform in bed, so naturally 1,265 men volunteered to participate in the study. The two researchers recently published their findings in The Journal of Sexual Medicine.
Should guys be worried? Actually, no.
The researchers assessed participants based on five domains established by the International Index of Erectile Function, which is apparently a thing, and cannabis-loving men scored better on orgasmic function, sexual desire, sexual satisfaction, overall satisfaction and erectile function. Conversely, the non-cannabis crowd scored higher on the scale with slightly bigger bellies, which is a real finding and not us trying to make a joke.
Studies like this show correlation, not causation, so drawing clinical conclusions is still premature, so to speak. That said, other studies already suggest that cannabis is better for sex than alcohol and involves less risk of post-sex regret. If future research also discovers that cannabis helps cure erectile dysfunction, Viagra's days might be numbered.
