People who smoke marijuana might be having more sex than their peers who don't use it, a Friday study revealed.

Regular marijuana users have about 20 percent more sex than abstainers, according to a new study from researchers at Stanford University. In the meantime, Eisenberg said that if a patient asks whether his frequent marijuana use is getting in the way of his sex life, he will tell them that "it may not be the culprit".

The study, however, stops short of saying there's a causal connection between pot and sex. Men who did not use marijuana said that they hd sex an average of 5.6 times in the four weeks before the survey, in comparison with the men who used marijuana on a daily bases and said they had sex 6.9 times on average, according to reports.

The researchers conducted a retrospective analysis of data on 50,000 Americans between the ages of 25 and 45 compiled by the National Survey of Family Growth between 2002 and 2015.

The findings applied to people of all races, ages, education and income levels, religions, every health status, marital status and whether they had children. At this time, 29 states have declared marijuana legal for recreational or medicinal purposes, and estimates suggest that more than 22 million Americans use pot, the researchers said in background information.

"Really, across the board in every group we evaluated, we saw the same association", Eisenberg said, although the study did not prove that pot use caused increased sexual activity.

Those findings held true even after the researchers controlled for a number of demographic variables known to affect sex habits and marijuana use.

No irregularities in Sherin's adoption: State govt to MEA
The child, who was originally called Saraswati, was adopted by a couple hailing from Kerala and named Sherin Mathews. While the search was going on, Mathews stuck to the story about Sherin's punishment and mysterious disappearance.

And at least one report showed men who smoked marijuana a few times a week had significantly lower sperm counts than non-users did.

That said, research shows that the average couple has sex roughly once a week.

The survey is carried out on an annual basis and explicitly asks participants how many times they've had intercourse with a member of the opposite sex in the past four weeks and how frequently they've smoked marijuana over the past 12 months.

Tobacco companies put a lot of effort into giving cigarettes sex appeal, but the more sensual smoke might actually belong to marijuana. "What we found was compared to never-users, those who reported daily use had about 20 percent more sex".

However, others have also found in both animals and humans that the drug can stimulate activity in brain regions involved in sexual arousal and activity. "It's possible it makes men or women more interested in sex", Eisenberg says. "I just think it's reassuring that more marijuana use doesn't necessarily inhibit sexual function".

Palamar authored a small study comparing the sexual experience of people who are under the influence of alcohol versus marijuana.
