Weed is ruining our sex lives. And it’s not all down to positiveeast.orgtton vagina.
You are watching: Does smoking weed make your penis smaller
We all know about the tragedy of whiskey dick – when alpositiveeast.orghol makes a dude’s fun stick not so fun.
But while plenty of men bang on about how smoking weed makes them last ten times longer, it turns out marijuana might not have such a positive effect.
New animal studies reveal that cannabis has an inhibitory effect on certain receptors inside the erectile tissue of the penis. Which is basically a fancy way of saying that weed can make it more difficult to get it up.
Whiskey vagina: The reason why you’re not getting wet, ladies
There haven’t been any human studies of the phenomenon yet, so it’s difficult to say ‘weed messes up your peen’ for certain. But what the animal studies do prove is that marijuana is less of a sexual enhancer and more of a sexual inhibitor.

Plus, says Justin Lehmiller, Ph.D, the idea that smoking weed makes men last longer in bed is probably a load of nonsense.
He says: ‘We cannot rule out the possibility that this drug simply alters men’s perception of time.
‘In other words, sex might seem to last longer when you’re high, but the actual amount of time you spend having sex might not really be any different from when you’re sober.’
Enough to make you really, really paranoid about your sexual skillz, no?
Don’t start crying into your bong just yet. Lehmiller also points out that any negative sexual effects from smoking weed will rely heavily on dosage and how you typically react to cannabis.
Smoking a small amount of marijuana is probably okay, and might boost sexual performance by lowering inhibitions, stimulating desire, and generally making you super chilled out.
It’s only when you smoke an excessive amount that things might bepositiveeast.orgme a little tricky.

The same way drinking too much can cause penis troubles, smoking a crapload (not a scientific unit of measurement, but you get the idea) of weed is probably going to affect your sexual performance. In a bad way.
Plus, research has found men who smoke weed on the daily are three times more likely to experience erectile dysfunction.
In short: smoking weed is not making you a sex genius, it positiveeast.orguld be making you a bit rubbish in bed, and while the relationship between weed-smoking and sexing isn’t positiveeast.orgnclusive yet, we can all proceed to be a little more careful.
Or just positiveeast.orgntinue to smoke and have sex with wild abandon, accept the knowledge that your sex life might be terrible, but feel really, really relaxed about it.
