What if you were just yourself during sex?, asks Aluna Francis:

“I was exploring the notion of the “one-night stand” as an opportunity for liberation, as opposed to the traditional idea of it as a shallow, drunken mistake. I wondered what it would be like if you decided, because you were never going to see that person again, to just be your most natural self, without the mask of who we often pretend to be or the investment we have in showing our “best,” “hottest” selves to a potential partner.”

“From a public health perspective, we should be focusing our energy on comprehensive sex education and reaching the most vulnerable populations,” writes Meera Shah. STI rates are rising. Here are some of the implications:

“Because STIs can cause infection without causing symptoms, the CDC has recommended regular screening for young, sexually active people. While we may be detecting more cases through screening, there are still many groups who are not being screened at all, or not nearly as much as they should. People of color, LGBTQIA, and young people can be marginalized from accessing health services due to poverty, stigma, lack of sex education, discrimination, and harmful government policies. The same factors that limit their access to healthcare also put them at risk for STIs. Ensuring low cost or free STI screenings through the Title X program has made it so that these marginalized groups can get the care they need.”

Smoking weed before sex can lead to better orgasms for women, study finds“:

“The study — led by a team at Saint Louis University School of Medicine — saw 373 participants, of which 34 percent reported having used marijuana before sexual activity. Combining smoking up and sex for the sake of science, these women reported positive effects in overall sexual satisfaction, desire, orgasm, and improvement in sexual pain though not in lubrication. […]

Though it’s interesting to note the above findings, what’s unclear is what exactly it is that leads to the heightened sexual experience. “It has been postulated that it leads to improvement in sexual function simply by lowering stress and anxiety,” the findings say. “It may slow the temporal perception of time and prolong the feelings of pleasurable sensations. It may lower sexual inhibitions and increase confidence and a willingness to experiment. Marijuana is also known to heighten sensations such as touch, smell, sight, taste, and hearing.” They also note the possibility that weed may help activate neurotransmitters linked to sexual pleasure.”

  1. I can attest to a more fun and slightly better orgasm when I’ve partaken in cannabis. I prefer a sativa(day time) strain with high thc and cbd ratio as when paired with an orgasm can really relax me.
