The combination of marijuana and sex is popular for a reason. Here are some things you should keep in mind.
Marijuana and sex are a beloved pairing. They make a lot of sense together: a union of two activities that are very pleasant on their own, and that when paired, can complement each other.
Marijuana can help people in many ways, something that the industry has capitalized on, developing lubricants and products that are meant to enhance sex. Old school smoking and edibles are also very popular, allowing people to let go of their inhibitions and to be in the moment in ways that they’d otherwise have some trouble.
There are several reasons why cannabis and sex work well together — primarily the deep relaxation that cannabis is associated with. This state of mind is very useful for sex, allowing people to reconnect with themselves and give themselves the chance to have a really good time. Then there’s also the fact that cannabis is a vasodilator, increasing blood flow and making our bodies more sensitive to stimulus.
Here are seven things you should keep in mind when having high sex:
Pick a consumption method you’re familiar with
If you’re trying out the combination of marijuana and sex for the first time, try using a method that you’re well acquainted with, in order to get rid of some of the factors that are out of your control. If you like to plan ahead, try experimenting with different strains and consumption methods some time before, just so you can have a handle on your high and can eliminate negative side effects.
Take strains into account
Do your research and buy the right type of weed. While some strains enhance physical sensations, others leave you with a more cerebral high, something that can get frustrating when trying to have a special sexual experience.
You don’t want to be too high, so be cautious and smoke or consume your edible slowly, making the process of getting high as gradual as possible. Remember, cannabis is suppose to support sex, not be the star of the evening.
Lube is always a good idea, especially if you’re trying out something new that could make you feel a little nervous. Another thing you should be wary of is the fact that THC tends to dry up your mouth and slow your body’s production of liquids, something that doesn’t really translate to pleasurable sex. Keep your lube nearby and stay hydrated.
Don’t experiment the night of
If you’ve been thinking about trying out a new edible or experimenting with a new consumption method, avoid this during sex. While it could result in some fun, especially if you have a good grasp of your body on weed, it’ll likely be a little distracting. Sex and weed is a combination that works, there’s no need to add more to the equation to make it special.
Play with new sensations
Test out new toys or sensations, taking advantage of your body’s newly acquired sensitivities. Again, it’s important to take it slow in order to avoid getting overwhelmed, steering clear of scenarios that are too intense. Go crazy with an ice cube, some lube or whatever else that sounds like a good time.
Don’t overdo it
There’s a fine line between a good time and a paranoid high. You don’t want to introduce the latter in your romantic evening, so be extra mindful of how much weed you’re consuming. And while passing out thanks to a high is great, it’s best to leave it for other opportunities aside from sex.
