Marijuana and Erectile Dysfunction

Erectile Dysfunction and MarijuanaThere are many opinions concerning the influence of marijuana on sex drive and men’s impotence. Some people insist that cannabis is a dangerous drug that can badly affect your sex life, both physically and mentally. Others are convinced that smoking marijuana doesn’t have any severe consequences or side effects.

What is the truth? Does this drug really cause Erectile Dysfunction? How can you maintain a healthy sex life? Is there any useful advice for heavy marijuana users? Take a look at the facts.

Facts

Research has shown that marijuana can damage male sperm. According to the report made by Buffalo University scientists, men who smoke weed have much less seminal fluid than those who don’t use the drug.

Researchers suggest that marijuana affects the sperm in a way that lowers the count, possibly by causing them to swim too fast and burning out before reaching the egg. It is known that marijuana contains different chemicals that can affect human physiology. This drug contains tetrahydrocannabinol or THC as an active ingredient that can disrupt the proper function of sperm.

Men’s sperm contain receptors which can be stimulated by THC. Tests have revealed that sperm influenced by smoking marijuana swim in a strange fashion. They are, therefore, less able to attach to the egg.

More than 20 men who had used cannabis twice a day for at least 5 years in a row participated in the research. Their sperm samples were tested. It turned out that the sperm in these participants swam too fast which reduced the chances of sperm reaching the ovule.

A permanent use of marijuana can burnout your sperm before it reaches the egg. As a result, the capability of men’s sperm to fertilize eggs properly may be highly affected.

Real Stories

In reality, there are many men who have become fathers even though they have been smoking marijuana for a long period of time. Aaron (42 years old) says, “I enjoy ganja. It has helped me to relax after my hard working days for more than 15 years. I feel great today. I have fathered a child. I don’t have any serious illnesses”.

Of course, Aaron’s story isn’t the same for all men.

Erectile Dysfunction and Marijuana“I stopped smoking weed because I faced some severe side effects. It affected my lungs, I kept coughing all the time and didn’t enjoy sex until my best friend suggested I should quit. I also know that pot and other cannabis-related drugs can compromise your ability to remember things, focus and shift attention”, Joe (25 years old) says. “Even a small dose of marijuana can impair your ability to recall words you have read 20 minutes earlier”.

In Joe’s case, Erectile Dysfunction was not the problem. His passion for sex returned as soon as he quit smoking pot. As such testimonies reveal, the affects of marijuana on sexual performance can vary.

Advice

It is unclear whether or not you can recover a fertile state after you stop taking cannabis. THC can be stored in human fat for a long period, so if your sex motivation disappears, it might not return to normal.

Scientists and doctors advise men not to smoke pot. The same advice concerns women because marijuana can affect a variety of bodily functions leading to horrible consequences.

Usually, Erectile Dysfunction happens to heavy cannabis users. Women can experience irregular periods when they smoke marijuana too often. At the same time, pot smokers can suffer from a lack of motivation, ED episodes, absence of sex drive, hormonal changes, aggressiveness and other physical and mental side effects.

Men who like smoking pot might be sexually active, but in bed they can experience fearfulness and anxiety. Marijuana can impair your coordination the way alcohol does. If you don’t want to look “stupid” in front of your woman, don’t smoke weed. Keep in mind that sex requires a lot of coordination and a clear mind.

Maybe cannabis won’t influence your sexual relations much. If so, you are a lucky smoker! But what if it does? What if marijuana ruins your sexual life? What if it does affect your reproductive health? Will you continue smoking pot or will you find other ways to relax? The decision is strictly up to you! enjoy

If this were true, there wouldn’t be many Rasta babies, would there?

Tokin GreenFebruary 20th, 2011 at 8:37 pm

While there may be minor effects to sexual hormones by using marijuana, they are DEFINITELY not significant enough to write an article about. There are hundreds of other things that cause real sexual incompetence, unlike marijuana. This is a perfect example of what stems from biased research.

Ask the right questions; get the right answers. Don’t just eat bullshit people feed you.

ShellyMarch 1st, 2012 at 10:21 pm

The article is true. My husband is smoking weeds. He said he was using it for pain killer but I think his lying to me coz he smoke every single day. I feel so tired longing for his love and affection. After his work he is more excited to see his weeds than his wife and kids. When I tried to fool around with him he always says he is tired. But I still trying my best to please him and in the middle of our making love it he just stop and looks like his having hard time to have Orgy…. makes me feel sad coz he really change when he start smoking weeds. He is always relax and forget about his partner. I hate drugs that ruin people’s live.

Baby-KMarch 22nd, 2012 at 4:37 pm

I think this article happens to be ‘spot on’. After living with someone & all the above mentioned ‘side effects’. They are all exactly what my partner experiences (20 years a smoker).
The above mentioned a ‘biased’ opinion from the researcher?? Well, maybe because you are a biased smoker?! If you were on the receiving end, of Living with someone that has all of the said side effects,& you put up with the day-to-day mood changes, aggressiveness, too much sleep, no energy & no enthusiasm, and all that coupled with paranoia, jealousy, & then the ‘bedroom issues’ too- maybe your opinion would be different. I’m guessing – Yes!
Thanks to the columnist who shared he’s report/ findings.

It can cause impotence by relaxing the body too much to pump blood and decreasing cardio. Rastas are very adapted because of a long harmony with ganj, and black people on average have greater lung capacity.

LouieeMay 4th, 2012 at 7:58 pm

Lol I smoked weed for six years and just recently stopped and it has helped my sex drive.and now feel alot better and breathe better much better with out although it was hard ha try it you might get your old life back

ganja irieMay 7th, 2012 at 3:16 am

this is bull….this guy is sick

julioMay 10th, 2012 at 6:50 pm

I feel this article is not neutral, obviously it has a side it is not impartial and information should not be partial to the opionions of the informant. This is my personal opinion. I have smoked weed for over 15 years and I have three kids and I have had many sexual partners, some users some not I will say it depends on you organism, also your mood, I had the best sex session high and I also had and have problems sometimes to hold an erection. My actual partner don’t smoke and she has no conplaints about our sexual life or else.

Humble africanMay 17th, 2012 at 8:02 pm

Wish it were easy 2 quit afta hearin dis

undercover rastaMay 19th, 2012 at 9:15 pm

I have smoked wee all day every day for over a decade. I literally take like 15 bong hits a day on average and just recently I started having issues with arousal. At this point though my tolerance to smoking is so high ganja doesn’t really get me high any longer. So the solution… I stopped smoking weed during the day, now its just evening smoking and everything is much better. Arousal is back to normal and when i do smoke it’s more pleasant. I’m glad I’ve cut back on my smoking, but I will never quit! Maryjane is a blessing, just don’t abuse her and you’ll be fine!

kenMay 21st, 2012 at 6:56 pm

on marijuana for 4-5 years. its TRUE!!! this thing eventually weakens your erection ability, however focused you may be. after the first ejaculation. raising it up again is almost entirely impossible and guess what this does to you partner who is only begining to enjoy the fun ride…? so i quit……

mickyMay 24th, 2012 at 11:49 pm

I am on the recieving end of life with a pot smoker nearly 40 years and it has ruined our lives, he still gets more pleasure from a bong than he does life in general no get up an go, smokes all his waking hours aggresive when theres none around ,physcosis and now alot of difficulty in the bedroom. I care about him but have had enough.

DolphinJewelMay 31st, 2012 at 1:35 pm

Wow, this has been very informative. I’m 44 and recently started dating a much younger guy, who is only 26, but a very heavy, regular pot smoker. Shockingly, considering his young age, he has had difficulty getting and maintaining an erection or even ejaculating, especially considering how young he is. We haven’t even had intercourse yet, but even when I perform oral sex on him, it takes him FOREVER to cum and I know I’m quite good and he assures me that I am, but I can probably have a dozen orgasms before he has even one. He is still very much into pleasing me with his hands and mouth, but I am quite surprised how long it takes him to get hard or cum. I gave up all alcohol and drugs 13 years ago and my sexual response seems to be awesome but, despite his young age, it reminds me of the not uncommon sexual response of a much older man! Men, watch out, even if you’re very YOUNG, smoking too much week will KILL your sex life! And he’s in so much denial about his addiction, he doesn’t even think so!?

VeraJune 14th, 2012 at 7:41 pm

Yes, sex is a problem with a pot smoker. Long time use and abuse of it does affect the man’s ability to have sex. Marijuana users will retaliate with there is no scientific proof. The proof will only be able to come from the mouths of their partners. I am fifty now. I grew up during the 70′s. Pot really was prevalent then and even more so today. Sex became the new drug too. I was very promiscuous growing up. Many male partners. The ones who had been smoking it on a regular basis and often (dependent-but they always disagree they are) had sexual problems. They would get really excited (hard) at the beginning and then as soon as we wanted to have intercourse they would loose their erection partially or fully. This seems to align with the research that states that semen move too fast and then burn out. Just met a man almost 60 years old and he has this problem too. No drive to want to have sex and lost interest in masturbation. But sure loves his pipe. He is feminine in nature and has even grown breasts though not large. Each man that had these problems didn’t act as if anything was wrong. But they did become defensive and offensive if I mentioned the pot use. The man I married gave it up and our sex life did improve. There were still problems but he had been sexually abused by a catholic priest. Men who smoke pot may be turning to due to mental problems, or past trauma such as sexual abuse which is blocked out and repressed. One in five men have experienced some sort of sexual abuse and usually but not always by a male. Marijuana or Mary has been a real menace to me and destroyed any chance of love and intimacy with any man who uses it. They often will choose it over sex, partnership, family and slowly isolate, relate to other pot smokers, fight for it and stop participating in society creating their smokers club. I can’t kiss someone who smokes it and the semen isn’t tasty at all! The liittle that would ejaculate after hours of stimulation.

420 KingJune 19th, 2012 at 5:48 am

This is pure bull shit! That dude only had a bad sex drive because his sex life was probably boring already. And i have two kids and i am 26. Started blowin trees at 12.

KSBJuly 7th, 2012 at 8:21 pm

Sounds like there are a lot of pot smokers in denial. Every guy I know who’s ever smoked it has said it had affected their sex life at some point, even to the point of breaking up because of it. If you value your time with your partner don’t do it.

WilliamJuly 14th, 2012 at 7:36 pm

People are missing a very important detail in regards to this issue—PERCEPTION.
That’s why when I see people say things like ” my husband enjoys seeing his weed
More than his family” I can’t help but laugh because it’s absolute circumstantiality! Some men enjoy watching the hockey game
More than seeing their family… Some people smoke weed and can’t get up int morning—others
Smoke it to make it easier getting up. It’s a highly perceptive drug.
Lack of sexual arousal and even Impotence can stem from even common stress!
So if there is no physical effect on the sex of people—just opinion and perception–than I think
It’s safe to say that it is probably a result of their personal mentality during sex on weed.
That’s why some people smoke and get paranoid—and others smoke and become apathetic.
What a horribly flawed statistical analysis—it’s like researching what music does to people
Since like marijuana—it’s heavily based on time, place, circumstance and even the product
Being offered itself
I personally stopped smoking because I was naturally shy—so marijuana exacerbated it and I had to quit lest I never speak to a attractive women ever again. But weed didn’t CAUSE my shyness.. Nor does it CAUSE laziness–it just exacerbates them.

newmannowJuly 16th, 2012 at 11:51 pm

I am 20 years old and have been smoking weed for 4 years. Just today I have decided to take an indefinite break from usage as I have been experiencing many of the problems discussed in this forum. I just recently got a new girlfriend and want to make a good impression (both physically and emotionally) despite my not being high will I’m with her, I still feel the pot in my system is probably connected with it (due to chronic usage every day for almost 2 years). So hopefully this break will help me achieve some sort of catharsis (hopefully it is just the pot)! I also can’t help but notice the people defending pot have weed referencing aliases, so as a post pothead in denial, I’d have to agree with KSB that there may be some people out there who are kidding themselves. Trust me, as a chronic user I’ve come to the realization that people ARE NOT MEANT TO SMOKE….ANYTHING…..PERIOD!!!!

RuthAugust 4th, 2012 at 5:40 pm

This is grammatically incorrect and is poorly written. This reads like a High School Essay from a below average student. For example…”the drug has an effect ON THC ” really? The drug IS THC!!! how did this get on the internet? Shame shame shame…. worthless

hahahahahahaAugust 9th, 2012 at 8:15 am

LOL!!!! @Shelly

JimoAugust 10th, 2012 at 10:17 pm

I am on this site because I smoke weed heavily and I have been having problems with having or keeping my erection. I don’t enjoy sex anymore and don’t even feel the ejaculation.I have two kids but I have failed to have another due to what I think is weak sperms or something wrong with them. So I think it is true that marijuana has a big effect with sexuality and I have today decided to quite so that I can have my life back. I advise all those that have similar problems to re look at there lives. I want to thank the author of this column and the independent contributions of people that have similar experiences like mine.

JacksonAugust 14th, 2012 at 10:18 am

I am a 20 year old Australian who has smoked weed every day for the last year (10-15 cones av per day). I am a person who likes to relax but I suffer from severe anxiety and depression and use weed as a way to relax and quell my fears due to my other fear of western medicine. All of the problems associated with weed usage mentioned in this article affect me and if I wasn’t such a prisoner of my own fears I would instantly decide to give up weed in order to function like a normal person. It’s so hard to find the balance, but don’t go too heavy on stoners. I noticed a woman post an interesting perspective on the life of stoners which I found to be spot on. It is an insular community, and it is one that makes you feel right at home, stoners find weed and that helps stoners find other stoners. If I could have my time over, I never would have smoked weed like I have. However, I don’t disapprove of it or its usage. I am a user that abuses the weed these days as opposed to the user who enjoys weeds effects on occasion and doesn’t let it become a habitual process that consumes your bloody life. I hope I have the power to quit and I really admire all you other stoners for providing some really brilliant perspective on the issue, with your help maybe I too can quit for good. Many of you have also been suggesting that the effects of weed are circumstantial and related to the user, I agree with this, but this also means that these problems exist for a number of people. It is estimated that 22 million people have a strong daily weed habit, that means that there might be a couple of million men too many that are having their lives destroyed by weed usage without them knowing it, and that is a great concern. I still love weed, for all you lucky users out there who don’t feel the negative effects of smoking weed I really do envy you because I wish I could enjoy weed too, but you cant have your cake and eat it too either. Take care stoners and enjoy your weed if it is the right thing for you.

Mandigo lewAugust 28th, 2012 at 11:36 pm

I’m 55 and been using weed for over 30 years. You can believe me or not but it has dampered my sex live. Some of you can say well your 55 years old… My father was 51 when I was born and I have 3 sister years younger than me so I know I have good genes. My girlfriend is is 34 and I want to stop smoking weed and get back to the stud I always been. Weed smokers you can be a fool if you want. This is a word to the wise stop now and rejuvenate your love life. I am a walking scientific study and want to give a weed smokers a word of wisdom, take it or leave it.

holly gOctober 12th, 2012 at 7:37 am

My bf is 44 years old and was an alcoholic.. sober or not his sex drive was up to the roof although sometimes he had a hard time in the cum department..(too much to drink, was the culprit)..he is now sober but found his way back to his old pot loving habits….from one drug to another, huh?? He is now back smoking pot for 4 months now and smokes every day and time permitting, he smokes all day.. i just noticed that besides being irritable, and forgetful, among others..His sex drive is also diminishing..he is not interested in sex at all when he is high.. ..we used to have the best sex that u can imagined before he went back smoking and now it is becoming a problem..i tried talking to him about it but as always the case, he loves is old habits more than our sex life or me. ..if the situation won’t change, and he choose to be sexless, I have no choice than to exit this miserable life with him..and yes it is the marijuana that change him..

ParikNovember 10th, 2012 at 11:03 pm

if that is d case then why do i get rock hard erections and have orgasms that can fill a coffee mug aftwr i smoke weed or a bong? in fact my girlfriend prefers me stoned before we go for sex!

SidNovember 25th, 2012 at 1:52 am

I agree with Parik, for me smoking weed before sex make the experience so much more sensual. For me smoking weed totally wants me to have sex and shoot a bucket full of cum. I suppose weed act differently for different people, I much prefer to have sex after smoking.

jay leasonNovember 26th, 2012 at 8:54 pm

This article is very true. I have all these symptoms. My dick is huge and gets hard right before I put it in but after a couple of strokes I couldn’t get it up. Sad really coz I’m only 30. I’m quitting today and I will make another post in amonth to see what the new results are.

Miss kNovember 28th, 2012 at 4:59 am

@ ShellyMarch 1st, 2012 at 10:21 pm. Hey dear, my story is exactly like urs. I married 3years back, but didn’t know that he started smoking cannabis (weed) he doesn’t come to me at all. Never,when ever I wanna approach him,he replies; ” we will,or I am tired, or I am not feeling like this”. Then after my research on Internet I came to know that along wid many drugs “weed” destroys UR sex life.u just look at UR partner’s face 4 love.this is silly.V shouldn’t bear this, v should complain to police n social services .I said him to ” quit drugs ” n go 4 cure but he isn’t agree, Now I am planning to leave him soon. Peace n blessings to u… good luck dear.hav a peaceful happy life ahead …

Miss kNovember 28th, 2012 at 5:14 am

@holly gOctober 12th, 2012 at 7:37 am.exact like my case. I will leave my druggy life partner as well . Coz I am feeling like having an abnormal life, no love, no attention , no interest , anti social , very aggressive Behaviour , n many more. I feel good wishes 4 u.

Miss kNovember 28th, 2012 at 8:02 pm

@ VeraJune 14th, 2012 at 7:41 pm. Well said, so true. Weed is destroying My Married life … I need to leave my partner if he will not quit.

RpDecember 6th, 2012 at 7:47 am

What? You people serious? “Test show” “studies say” that’s a bunch of horse *** marijuana isn’t a drug…alcohol is a drug, processed tabacco is a drug. When have you seen natural drugs? To my understanding drugs are the ones the doctors priscribe. Anyways I’ve smoked before everyday & believe me sex wasn’t a problem. If anything it made me want to have more sex. Haha it’s true. But stop being close minded people & do your research & you’ll see that marijuana is not a drug. Seriously google it.

K.December 19th, 2012 at 2:48 pm

@Baby K
I experienced exactly the same thing especially the mood swings which over two years led to him becoming violent as he was aggitated all the time. It does affect sex drive as ive smoked for a long time myself. However once you become a fequent smoker it is often hard to accept that cannabis is causing these side effects! He is completly controled by the weed, this is not to say this is the fate of all smokers but there alot of people out there that are suffering like this and are not aware of the cause.

toneyJanuary 14th, 2013 at 6:26 am

I been smoking weed 1-2 joints a day for 37 years started at 21 am now 57 got 2 adult kids never had any problems with getting it up My wife (of 25yrs) say am to mutch for her (i will never mess around) cause she seams to have a low sex drive compear to me,as most men i have had the once in a while bad day but nothing to complain about.But since i started to take medication (8mth now) for cholesterol i have started to notice a difrent i have no problem getting it up but keeping it up seams to take a lil more work,but i still can get the job done,i no this pill can cause that.(not weed),however my cholesterol is in check now beacuse of my diet and ill ask my doctor to try to get me of this medication.Weed and sex always worked for me not saying is good or bad and i have a few freinds that smoked way mutcmore than me with on complain and we talk very openly about weed and sex many times unless they are lieing,but who cears i no am allright in that department…LOL

Smoking in stressful moments doesn’t seem to harm your sex life. Abuse of anything does.

Ok you guys who keep saying bullshit seem really arrogant and self centred. How about yoi shut the f**k up and listen to others for a change? Its pepple like you that make this life difficult for others. Some people experience issues you do not doesnt make it bullshit!
Some people get cancaer and such illnesses are common etc, you dont think thats bullshit. Have a little compassion.

@rp. any substance that affects neurological process or chemical balances is a drug. caffeine, nicotine, lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD), tetrahydro cannibinoids (THC), glucose (sugar), even those your own glands produce such as epinephrine and dopamine ARE drugs. Get YOUR facts straight.

LunaApril 25th, 2013 at 10:20 am

It is soooo true! My husband smokes weeds at least twice a day and he has ED. I work daily with 3 other potheads, and I notice that they are slow, forgetful, can’t concentrate, too lay back, mood swings and lack of ambitions.

wawaApril 27th, 2013 at 5:38 am

most people do not understand the difference between impotence and erectile dysfunction.the difference is that impotence relates to infertility and ED is about problems with erection.

Do not mix these two definitions, it’s important

Toffee77July 15th, 2013 at 10:52 am

I’m 36 years old now and although i socially smoked a bit of pot when I was in m late teens I joined the Armed forces and as a result I gave it up. I got married and had 3 children during my 20s and I had quite a high sex drive.

The marriage ended in my late 20s and soon after that I left the forces and returned back to my home town. On returning home all my old mates and brother were heavy weed smokers. due to the stress of the break up and a few other things that had happened in my life I started smoking skunk a couple of times a week, still had a fairly high sex drive and met a few girls off dating websites and a few one night stands, as you do!

Gradually my weed smoking became more frequent until the point I was smoking an 1/8 a day and sometimes more. It didn’t take long before I started to notice a bit less interest in sex and more and more interested in just getting stoned. during this time i became more and more depressed with my life and my motivation really started to wither away. I gave up my well paid job as I didnt really enjoy that and got a job similar to what I did in the forces, thinking this was the cause of my problems with depression and diminishing sex drive.

It wasn’t and I still had trouble getting interested in sex, the natural waking up with an hard on had gone altogether. anyway after a few failed relationships and my life tumbling out of control I’ve finally stopped smoking 9 weeks ago, May 2013. I’ve smoked weed heavily for 8 years and it has robbed me of a lot of things, mostly my emotions just seem to have all but vanished…not good when you find very little enjoyment in anything. I’ve missed out a lot of the other things that have happened but I can catergorically state that weed will kill your sex drive, motivation and eventually your emotions. quit now and give ourself a chance to get them back. I feel clearer in my mind lately but still got a long way to go before i get the old me back, if that is even possible, I hope it is

JustinAugust 2nd, 2013 at 8:54 am

I am a 40 yr old male and been smoking pot for 20 yrs. I have noticed that the last couple yrs my sex isnt as great,penis can be rock hard my wife just got finish giving me head and in 20 seconds my penis goes limp this has become very troublesome to me and my marriage.needless to say my wife has a face like beyonce and a body out of a king magazine, so i am very turned on…Now it is time to stop chiefing because I can tell that I not pleasing my wife like I use to..And for u guys who think it is mental I was like that to but I had to stop smoking for awhile becz I went away for business for 3 weeks and no green and when I got home the 1st week or so my penis was rock and we had great sex, then I started back on marijuana and same ol same ol..my wife said sex is now 50/50 that it maybe good which is a problem for me because I have always been very good in bed… having a hot wife who is ready for me and not being able to satisfy her saddens me so its time to stop after I finish off my last bag this wkend

H LucasSeptember 28th, 2013 at 4:01 am

I’m brazilian, 20 years old and, once, my ex-girlfriend come to me with those accounts of pot smoking and impotence. At first, I thought it nonsense – how could Bob Marley had have so many children, for example? ahaha. Jokes appart, in my case as to so many friends of mine, marihuana is a great sexual stimulant.
We can not disagree the science. But, despite the fact that it’s prooved that the sperm is affected by the current usage of ganja, there is no consense in the academic community that herb causes erectile dysfunction. In my opinion, people who relate impotence and links it to pot, are under some stress condition, potentialized by marihuana and experience fearfulness in sexual relations, so as in every kind of contact with others – just backwardness, they can’t relax with the drug, as I and others can.

abby6October 1st, 2013 at 1:07 pm

I think this article is pretty much spot on. Both me and my partner are fairly avid smokers, him more than me, and every time we try to consummate our affection something always goes wrong. Either, he “cant get it up” or he has a hard time “finishing”. I find it very frustrating and its really getting in between us. This is not to say that every male who avidly smokes will have this problem, but it does effect some lives greatly. Even so, my experience with smoking pot has not effected my life in any prolonged way, but that cannot be said for my partner.

I’m dating a guy who is 10 years younger than me but his sex drive is not up to par. He is a heavy weed smoking (smokes daily throughout the day) he has been smoking for over 10 years. He is heavily dependent on it. I’ve had better sex with men who are substance-free and are 10 years older than him. Wakes up in the morning and jumps out of bed to watch TV, no morning boner, no sex in the AM, nothing. I have to initiate the act. I’m thinking about leaving. I didn’t sign up for this, if I stay am going to cheat.

Worried ..Sexually Frustrated WomanOctober 22nd, 2013 at 1:47 am

Wow I was looking up information to see if marijuana could cause arousal and erection issues and came across this blog. And it what I am reading on here seems to be the same exact thing. My finance is 33 and a very heavy smoker, his interest in sex is so nonchalant . He is tired all the time, can be aggressive, moody, reckless in thinking-wild, most of the time wants oral sex to get him hard then after he does a load its all over, and my body is wanting so much more. This worried me cause I started to think it was me that I was not good enough to keep him hard enough to keep him going. But I have also noticed times when he is aroused because it hang longer and thicker but its not erect stand out and up. He has told me not me, that I am beautiful and sexy to him, he is always touching and rubbing on me then and then after he has smoked weed he becomes distant like he is in the world of his own. I become very irritated and fussy because I am lacking what need to receive in the bedroom. I am a older woman too my sex drive is high–and this just so not good. When he does slow down off the weed man the sex is Great so is his personality. I love him very much but being young I would have never thought his libido and erection issues would be that of a old man. So yes Marijuana does effect the sex drive , performance , and mood swing issues of men of all ages.

Boy i have say right on – my husband is a big smoker and he almost 60 and he no longer has any interest in sex or anything that going to take him away
from his love the PIPE for more then a few hours ….We take vacation base on how easy can he get weed when we get there. If I mention sex he will get so angry and mad and not speak to me for days. I still have a sex drive and i get hit on all the time I don’t want to cheat on him but I wonder would he even care if I do…. When your young sure you would not have any problems ,but keep it up and you will a sad limp dick.

Homegrown, organic weed doesn’t cause people to go impotent like this, however, the frankenweed theyr peddling on the streets here in America, will cause impotence. Theyr peddling unnatural strains of weed these days, laced with formaldehyde and other substances. I know because I’ve been smoking weed for almost 20 yrs, since I was a teen, and recently I had to stop…. Gradually, my erections are slowly returning, to some extent, but I may need stem cell therapy done to totally fix the damage… I’m only 34.

I think these hydro strains, inorganic fertilizers, etc are creating this, it’s like unnatural GMO weed hyped up on some steroids or something. I agree, natural organic weed won’t necessarily cause this problem. Look at the rastafaris, hell look at Bob Marley, he had 17 kids. Lived up into his late 30′s/40′s somewhere I’m sure. But I do think word needs to get out to potheads out there, there is a difference between natural weed, and this frankenstein weed getting pumped into our streets, often by government and cartels. Or often by independent growers who aren’t aware of what they are doing, and are using unnatural fertilizers and such….

At any rate, the damage is already done to me, I’m not even sure I can smoke organic weed anymore w/o having ED problems, you’ve gotta understand that weed is not the only factor creating this early ED crisis in men, estrogens being laden into our foods, water, medicines, vaccines, etc etc are also contributing. That in conjunction with the weed (even if it’s organic weed), and the fact that my body’s already been compromised, I think I’m gonna have to say goodbye to mary jane forever… That kinda of upsets me, but it is what it is….. For the younger generation of kids smoking pot, I recommend if your gonna smoke, grow your own organic, homegrown weed, so you know what’s in it.

I have always been a very self-directed, sure footed mature soul, even in preschool. I bossed my older siblings around (haha) and often find myself most at home in positions of leadership. I’m 24. So you’d think I’d be dynamite in the sack right? My love for humanity is way higher than average, and I fall in love more deeply and often than is common. I’m the type of dude that seeks a husband, not a wife, and I fantasize about the butthole, never really dicks, unless they and the balls are in the background from the butthole being front and center. So it’s been really disappointing in my sexual encounters when I haven’t been able to get it up. Really, really disappointing. Cigs & weed, now it’s just weed. I know I can live up to the name Love King but I sure as hell haven’t yet. My only serious boyfriend ended up asking for space because I know he wanted to be topped and I just couldn’t. He blamed cigarettes and said “I would do anything for you to quit smoking cigs” and I didn’t. That was 4 years ago and I have since quit smoking cigs–it’s been 2 and half years. Recently I started seeing a guy that makes me feel Great and he says he is most comfortable bottoming, which is perfect. Or will be when I can keep a boner. I’m in a unique place because I’m also realizing that another cause of ED in young men is below the radar of most doctors–Too much streaming hardcore porn, too much masturbation. So in addition to not watching porn or masturbating for 2-3 months, which reboots the system’s natural chemistry, I will no longer smoke herb. I know this is what I need to do because somewhere out there, and maybe I’ve already met him and it’s the current guy, there is a man who will love me plowing his ass until we die. It will be extremely difficult not to smoke weed because I love it so deeply…but knowing myself I went 40 days without it last year when I couldn’t even yawn during my hardcore workouts without coughing dreadfully before getting enough air in my lungs. I have found comfort in smoking herb knowing it is female, and recognizing that though I have deeply loved females in my past, stayed up late thinking about them, that I will only get hard (while stimulating manually at this point, but I remember back in 7th grade getting rock hard from nothing but speedo pics) thinking of a guy–and somehow smoking the female herb comforted me in the essence that I was somehow becoming closer to the young women I loved. That’s so abstract though it might as well be Beavis and Butthead farting in each other’s faces for all the good it does me. I know that marijuana has brought value to my life but nothing is more important than finding a long-term spouse, and the best spouse for me is probably a bottom (though I love getting plowed, I feel more at home fantasizing about being the plow). Because of this, I must quit herb. Think of it this way–my body has just uncovered a new monument, and it says No Girls Allowed. Hahaha. And all the money I will save is an after thought to being able to go into a sexual encounter without the stress that most men would only feel before being publicly castrated.

Smoking weed actually gets me hard and makes my testicles sag more. These studies are bogus. I eat rice crispy treats cooked with cannabis and wow I’m super hard and my balls sag. If you suffer from ED maybe you have some other issue. Eat healthy foods smoke weed stay hard. Maybe the weed is a trigger showing you what’s already there.

I’m seriously thinking it’s GMO weed, and that maybe normal, organic weed wouldn’t make me impotent. So many potheads get so defensive about weed that if you say *some* weed may be bad, in their minds it translates to *all* weed must be bad, which to me seems an overly emotional and dogmatic way to look at things. Well it’s the same concept we’ve got with food, you’ve got healthy organic foods, then you’ve got GMO foods. I think it’s the same concept with weed and recreational drugs in general honestly.

However, I don’t think that is the only contributing factor, I also think being stuck on GMO diets (as most of us are) also exacerbates the damage to the libido. It kinda works in conjunction with GMO drugs.

There is a supplement you can get, it is called Yohimbine hcl, it’s hard to find it in powder form (I’m seeking it in powder form), it’s a tree bark that grows in west africa, and has been used for a long time to treat erectile dysfunction, however, the bark can be crushed into a powder and smoked as a halucinogen, as well as it can be made into a tea and sipped. I’ve also heard someone mention that I can spit in the palm of my hand, mix in a little yohimbine, rub it into my genitals and masturbate with it, and this is supposed to help.

I highly recommend being very careful with yohimbine or yohimbe products, as they are very powerful MAOI inhibitors, too large a dose can leave you in the hospital or morgue, usually due to heart failure. If you’ve got heart problems, don’t mess with this stuff. If you’re in good condition, just be careful how much you take.

Could you please delete my post? I found that the marijuana was not the problem–the guy just wasn’t man enough. I was with a different guy and i got rock hard. Marijuana till the day I die.

…. I’m gradually getting used to sober life, look, stop smoking weed now is my advice to younger people, you’re probably not gonna see the sexual side effects in you’re teens or you’re twenties, it’ll hit you at some point in you’re early-mid thirties. You may be one of those lucky smokers who never gets these problems, but, do you really want to take that chance?

Also I hear, for many of us guys facing this problem, is that you can buy this stuff called horny goat weed, which should help us get our erections back. It is said to be safe and effective. But I am going with the more surefire approach, and getting Stem Cell treatment, even if it does take me 2, maybe 2 and a half yrs to save for it. There are Stem Cell centers in America, which can actually solve the problem, rather than going after the symptoms, Stem Cell surgery goes after the root of the issue. It is highly expensive, but, it’s worth it. The surgery can run anywhere from $10,000-$15,000.

Truth is ive been smoking over ten years(young though), but it surely does affect your sex life… have read a lot on cannabis, its active compounds and loads of articles on its effects. Earnestly, it has had some negative effects on my sex life. Im 24, and wanna to know if quitting truly helps…

Merci
