Advocates for cannabis-fueled sexytimes shout it from the rooftops: The plant can help you shake inhibitions, get out of your head, and maintain a connection like never before. Find the right strain for you, your partner, and your sexual style, and expect the sparks to fly.

Porn Goes To Pot


Is cannabis sexy? Um, obviously. According to PornHub, a whole new genre has sprung up around the plant. There’s even one production company that makes pot porn exclusively. The link, says CannaSexual Ashley Manta, is natural: “We know that THC is a vasodilator. That’s going to increase blood flow to the area, which is going to increase engorgement with blood, which is one of the things that happens when your body physiologically responds to genital stimulation,” she explains. Later in the year, you may find that other porn websites like, may start to adopt these new categories for its viewers to enjoy.
