Researchers Claim Cannabis Can Cause Spontaneous Orgasms

By David Jenison on September 28, 2017

Researchers in Philly and the Netherlands studied the case of a 40-year-old woman who experienced "persistent spontaneous orgasms" after smoking cannabis and engaging in "five hour hard pounding sexual activity." In other words, the woman basically got high after a five-hour sexathon, but the orgasms kept coming even though the "hard pounding" came to an end. The woman did not meet the criteria for Restless Genital Syndrome, which is apparently a thing, so the researchers explored other options. 

"Restless Genital Syndrome (ReGS) should be distinguished from Spontaneous Orgasms: A case report of Cannabis induced spontaneous orgasm," in the September 2017 Journal of Sex and Marital Therapy, reported the findings as following: "It was concluded that her spontaneous orgasms were the result of the use of cannabis combined with long duration of previous sexual activity." It is unclear if the researchers considered the cannabis-induced spontaneous orgasms to be an adverse effect or prized benefit. 

In other news, 5-Hour Energy shots has hired the woman as its new spokesperson, and Melania Trump started smoking weed in hopes that she'll stop having to fake it.
