Study: Marijuana High Robs Men of Sexual High

Men who regularly get high on pot may be robbing themselves of sexual highs, according to a report in New Scientist.

A study of 8,656 Australian men found that those who smoked marijuana daily had more trouble reaching orgasm than nonsmokers.

Researchers led by Marian Pitts of La Trobe University in Melbourne also found that some smokers had the opposite problem — premature ejaculation, according to the study published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine.

Although they suffered sexual problems, men who smoked pot reported more sexual partners than nonsmokers and were twice as likely as nonsmokers to have had two or more sex partners in the previous year.
