How Marijuana Messes With Your Genitals

Posted in Sexual Health 27 Oct, 2015

Cannabis - that tricky political subject, aroma of Stonehenge, instigator of incredible appetites and now the foe of erections and lubrication. That's right. Hold onto your pants because marijuana interferes with your genitals.

Weed dick and cotton vagina. Have you ever heard of those? No? Ok, put that down; pull up your trousers and pay attention.


How does it affect men?

What 'weed dick' actually means is that marijuana affects your pocket rocket. Bye-bye erection. Farewell morning alarm cock. You shall no longer pitch a midnight tent because a new study shows that weed has a detrimental effect on receptors in the penis, which makes getting an erection harder, Three times harder, in fact. Human tests haven't been carried out yet, although I'm sure there will be many volunteers for that one. Lab animal experiments have shown the anti-erection results. I have visions of many stoned and hungry rats.


Ah, but it helps me relax and have sex

For some men suffering from erectile dysfunction, smoking cannabis is quite helpful in that it lowers inhibitions, after all, thinking you won't get it up means you won't get it up. Smoking (and drinking Jaegerbombs) can help those troubles melt away.

Some men go further and believe their sexual prowess increases with their intake of weed, but the scientist in charge of the 'anti-erection testing' believes that might be down to perception. These men think they are lasting for ages, but in fact it's the usual three minutes with their brains tripping and not registering the fact. It's not just the men though, so stop laughing ladies.


How does it affect women?

Cotton vagina sounds like one of Barbie's little pets but what it means in reality is that marijuana stops you producing lubrication or getting sexually excited down there. This can lead to soreness and a pretty rubbish sex life.

It's thought that some types of weed will affect women more than others and in general if you get a dry mouth, you'll get a dry vagina too. It's worth checking out other causes of vaginal dryness. The pill can cause a dry vagina due to the estrogen drop and a lack of 'mid-cycle' wetness. This is normally the time you are most likely to conceive and therefore the time you will have most natural lubrication. Mother Nature has it sussed, but if you're experiencing problems try a little lube to smooth things out.


But it helps...

Weed may lower sexual inhibitions in women as it does with men. Feeling relaxed and unstressed is a good route to sex because when you're tense sex is likely to be the last thing on your mind. Problem is it can mask underlying problems, which may be better dealt with by a professional. If you're smoking to block out past experiences or pain, you really ought to see your doctor for a chat.

Perhaps it's time to move the bong out of the bedroom, although I wonder if scientists tested the lab rats' thought patterns? 'I can't be bothered with sex have you got any food?' may be the real reason weed interferes with genitals.If you want to find out more information about erectile dysfunction symptoms and its other causes, go to our impotence page.
