Further bolstering the findings, the study also found what researchers call a "dose-dependent relationship" between marijuana use and sex frequency: as respondents' marijuana use rates increased, so did their frequency of having sex.
"Frequent marijuana use doesn't seem to impair sexual motivation or performance".
They found this was true of all people - eliminating the theory that it is only true for people who smoke weed to relax before sex, they said. The women who had not smoked weed in the past one year were found to have had sex 6.0 times on average in the last month in comparison with 7.1 times for the females who smoked up. Among men, marijuana users had sex 6.9 times a month, compared with 5.6 times for nonusers.
More than 20 million adult Americans are current marijuana users, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse. Marijuana is legal for medical or recreational adult use in 29 states in the USA and the District of Columbia.
Findings indicate that pot users are having about 20 percent more sex than pot abstainers, Eisenberg noted.
The study asked 50,000 men and women how many people they had slept with, and how often they've smoked weed over the past year.

Starbucks Just Released a Zombie Frappuccino Right In Time for Halloween
The caramel flavor is especially strong, and it's followed by a tart and tangy apple flavor, delivering on the flavor promised. Starbucks' Zombie Frappuccino appeared in stores across the country Thursday, and reviews are starting to roll in.
"It was pretty much every group we studied, this pattern persisted", Eisenberg told NPR.
"While the results are very interesting, it's premature to suggest that marijuana may have a medicinal use in the treatment of sexual disorders such as erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation or orgasmic disorder", Vira said.
To further explore the topic, Eisenberg and his colleagues analyzed data from the National Survey of Family Growth, conducted by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which included questions on marijuana use and frequency of sex.
About 24.5 percent of the men and 14.5 percent of the women reported using marijuana. This trend held even when researchers accounted for other drug use by participants.
Moreover, Eisenberg said, the positive association between marijuana use and coital frequency was independent of demographic, health, marital or parental status.
Sex also rose steadily with increasing marijuana use.
But at the end of it, Eisenberg still cautioned that the study was not proof of their being a causal link, strong as the hints maybe.
