It’s true: couples who hit the bong together often have stronger relationships. Not only is it always good to have another thing in common with your significant other, but couples who smoke together have a few other significant things going for them. Here are some of the reasons why stoner couples have a better time both inside and outside the bedroom.
Outside the Bedroom
1. More trust.
The International Business Times evaluated the results of a survey which was sent to users of My420Mate.com. It was found that 98% of cannabis lovers wouldn’t cheat even if they didn’t get caught. Rock on stoner couples.
As we stated in 10 Things That are Better When Baked: nature walks while high are the best. In fact, almost all adventures while baked are amazing. The one thing better than solo or friendly escapades is one with your romantic partner. That way, you can enjoy nature while enjoying nature, in the way nature intended! Say ‘nature’ one more time.
3. Less stress.
Another major benefit for couples who smoke together is less stress. A 2013 studyfound that THC reduces the negative bias in emotional processing. Less stress means less fights and more fun. On an even more serious note, a Buffalo University study points out that couples who use cannabis together are less likely to experience domestic violence.
Cannabis has the power to allow you to connect with your partner on a more spiritual level as well as make every day activities that much better. While activities outside the bedroom are great, let’s move on to what everyone was waiting for.
Inside the Bedroom
1. More passion.
From casual cannabis-using couples to full fledge marijuana lovers, the passion for the plant isn’t the defining factor. It does, however, introduce some added passion for the relationship. If you’re in for a fun evening with your significant other, sativa strains or sativa dominant hybrids are the way to go. For those of you who forget, we broke down the difference between sativa and indica strains for you.
While indica strains give you a full body high, it is easier to get distracted or fall asleep before anything fun happens. Meanwhile, sativa strains cause a cerebral high that enhances creativity and gives you more energy. As you can imagine, combine those three factors together and the sex gets better!
2. More pleasure.
The earlier mentioned study also mentioned that cannabis lovers often care more about their partner’s pleasure more than their own. In fact, the study found that nearly 78% agreed with that statement. Sexy.
3. Enhanced sex.
To sum it all up, astronomer Carl Sagan said it best:
“Cannabis also enhances the enjoyment of sex – on the one hand it gives an exquisite sensitivity, but on the other hand it postpones orgasm: in part by distracting me with the profusion of image passing before my eyes. The actual duration of orgasm seems to lengthen greatly, but this may be the usual experience of time expansion which comes with cannabis smoking.”
We bet you never thought that Carl Sagan would have summed up your thoughts on high sex so accurately.
