THC & Sexual Presence

February 8, 2018

Many people report that getting high, especially with lots of THC in the puff, often stimulates a truly radically-pleasurable sexual experience. I certainly verify this report! But equally, a lot of people get stoned and phase out and lose all sexual charge for hours. What's going on here?


In seemingly-unrelated scientific studies, more information (and a bit of misinformation) has surfaced concerning the ways in which regular marijuana use impacts human beings. In the first study, “How Marijuana Affects Male Sexual Performance,” a valiant attempt was made to clarify how getting high affects the penis. Many men report longer and more pleasurable erections while making love under the influence of cannabis - but some say marijuana lessens sexual prowess. 


Anbother study tried to show the physiological effect of cannabis by experimenting on the penises of rats - and found that when you torture rats by giving them massive doses of THC, their poor little penises are less able to get an erection. Well - if you scientifically probe someone's penis while high, what do you expect? This research shows the general idiocy of many experiments with grass - they treat the effect of cannabis as purely physiological, whereas obviously, sexual arousal is a highly emotional and mental event.


Overt sexual performance in and of itself, doesn’t define a satisfactory sexual encounter. Many men report that, when using Viagra, performance is great but deep bonding, pleasure, and intimacy are often nil. And I again return focus to mindset while making love when high … if you begin by pausing and tuning into your breathing and whole-body in the present moment, you'll maximize the potential of a deep sexual experience.


A long-lasting erection is not what’s most important - what’s most important is the inner experience of letting the sexual flow happen spontaneously. Check out the Sex & Grass chapter in Mindfully High for more on this. And here's the first research project I mentioned above:
