Two of the best things around, cannabis and sex, so naturally consuming cannabis should make for some mind-blowing sex. Not so fast, before you light up and hook up, take a look at some of the obvious benefits of sex while stoned but also a few things to keep in mind or at least plan ahead for. Whether you are with a long term partner or it’s a new relationship, or even an agreed one night thing, cannabis can do wonders to enhance what is already a pretty good time.
Choosing the Right Strain
The right cannabis strain can really elevate your next sexual experience. Knowing which ones are right for you can take some testing, it’s all in the name of sexual science. However there are some strains that have a reputation amongst cannabis connoisseurs who like to enhance their sex life with cannabis. Mimosa is a perfect one for many people as it leaves you feeling energetic, euphoric, happy and you can then let go of your inhibitions a little and enjoy the tingly sensations this strain can bring on. The Sativa dominant hybrid Trainwreck is another favorite to get you in the right headspace, and it really does intensify sensations. Perfect for sexual exploration. Granddaddy Purple is an Indica dominant hybrid but it does not leave you couch locked, or bed locked for that matter. It allows you to get out of your head enough so that you can focus on your partner, yourself and just being in the moment. Another consideration, in addition to the right cannabis strain, is knowing which Terpenes really bring out your sexual best. Generally myrcene is known for its relaxing properties and pinene is uplifting so a strain that combines the two is a perfect sexual duo!
The Benefits of Cannabis and Sex
Sex while high can really be an amazing experience. After a nice fat blunt or a few bong hits your muscles will be super relaxed and every touch, your own and your partners feels a little magical. Start things off with a sensual massage that after you’ve consumed cannabis feels even better because your body is more receptive and sensitive to touch. Cannabis always help you to overcome shyness with a new partner or maybe you are looking to experiment more with a current partner. The right cannabis strain can make bringing up the topic much easier and less stressful. Ever had the giggles during sex? What about when you’re high? Enjoying a good laugh with your partner, not at your partner of course, can truly be a sexually bonding experience. If you have never tried cannabis and sex, you’re missing out. It will bring you closer together and make the sex that much more exciting. Another benefit of stoned sex, your perception of time increases significantly so even if you and your partner are not going for hours, it will feel like it!
Possible Negatives and Solutions
Many people become a little forgetful after consuming cannabis. Now you won’t be so forgetful that you forget your partner is there, it’s more about the details. Did you remember to get condoms? Where are those mood enhancing candles, still in the car? It’s only a problem if you let it become one and the easy solution, prepare everything before you consume any cannabis, that way you don’t ruin the mood and your buzz running around your place or neighborhood at the last minute. You won’t enjoy it and neither will your partner, although it might be entertaining for your neighbors! Another unwanted side effect of cannabis and sex is cotton mouth and for some women cotton vagina, yes it’s a thing. That is why lube was invented so put that on your preparation list because making a last minute lube run is not sexy. For the cotton mouth, no not lube, just stay hydrated and using ice cubes and alternating with warm liquids is an amazing way to keep dry mouth under control. It happens to all men, no really if it happens to you or your partner during sex, it could be the amount of cannabis or even the strain so before you call the doctor and request Viagra, try waiting 20 minutes or so and then give it another go. In the meantime, focus on massage and foreplay. For next time, try consuming less cannabis or choose a more Sativa dominant hybrid or a Sativa strain, no Indicas. Sleepy sex might be something that happens but is usually not a goal.
