Is Marijuana 'Viagra' For Women?
by Kelley Chronic
When Viagra hit the market back in the late 1990s, it was hoped that a women's form would be close behind. Many different experiments... and quite a few failures later, the trial and error process continues with women waiting anxiously for their version of a relationship enhancing pill.
While the ladies pill seems to be held up in pharmaceutical limbo, there is one way of loosening up the female libido, the use of marijuana. Throughout human history, pot has been shown to have the ability to heighten the females sex drive while, heightening their sensual awareness. The close association between marijuana consumption and a female's sexual arousal is hardly new. Throughout human history many early societies consumed marijuana specifically for this purpose. As marijuana is researched and dissected for all of its potential health benefits, the study of marijuana use and how it may benefit a female's sexual satisfaction has yet to receive the clinical studies that it's so righteously deserves.
With a life that is bombarded by bills, responsibilities and time constraints; many psychologists believe that it is these life stressors which rob females of a healthy sex life. As females get older, the variables which have a bearing on their sexual dysfunction tend to increase. Sexual dysfunction is a broad-based term for which there is no single reason, nor magic bullet to cure. Pain during intercourse, spousal conflicts, childbirth, and a host of other ailments all play a role in the female libido and her ability to feel "turned on."
Jill Lopez is a newlywed who works in advertising sales. She also recently started a master's degree program. The course load coupled with her regular work schedule has her feeling "stressed and tired." That stress has overflowed into her sex life. Jill openly admits that using marijuana helps her feel less anxious about her day-to-day routine and increases her libido. " I feel relaxed and stimulated at the same time," she says. [Source]
As both a female and one who carries a large amount of responsibility, Rihanna has been doing her own studies on marijuana and the female sex drive. In the news over the last few days, "pot's Princess" has been using her social networking skills to inform any and all who might listen that her new favorite book is "sex pot: the marijuana lover's guide to get it on." The author, who goes by the name of Mamakind, states that marijuana is a known aphrodisiac of the gods and on that point, I would have to agree.
Not surprising...the few scientific studies on marijuana and the human sex drive, which does exist, tend to be myopically focused on testosterone levels, and how they are affected in men.
Here's a quick video showing professional women and the role marijuana plays in their daily lives.
