On Being Stoned
Charles T. Tart, Ph. D.
Chapter 13. Sexuality
GIVEN THE COMMON American stereotype of the "sex-crazed dope fiend," it is interesting to see what
effects on sexuality are perceived by marijuana users themselves.
Desire for Sex
A common effect is "My sexual drive goes up when stoned; I have more need for sex" (18%, 21%, 28%,
21%, 12%). This may begin to occur at the Moderate to Strong levels of intoxication (11%, 25%, 32%, 8%,
2%). Users of Psychedelics experience this at lower levels of intoxication (p <.0005), as does the Therapy and
Growth group (p <.05, overall).
The converse effect "I have much less sexual drive when stoned; it's difficult to arouse me even in a situation
which would normally arouse me" is rare (42%, 34%, 15%, 5%, 2%). When it occurs, it is at the strong levels
and higher (6%, 11%, 17%, 13%, 7%). The Professionals experience this loss of sexual need at lower levels of
intoxication (p <.05).
A very common effect is "I have no increase in sexual feelings unless it's a situation that I would normally
be sexually aroused in, and then the sexual feelings are much stronger and more enjoyable" (7%, 11%, 27%,
23%, 24%). Users of Psychedelics report this more frequently (p <.05) than Non-users. It generally occurs at
Moderate to Strong levels (17%, 28%, 27%, 8%, 2%).
The relationships of these three alterations of sexual need are plotted in Figure 13-1. Sexual need going up

when the situation is appropriate is reported
more frequently than need per se going up (p
<.01), and sexual need per se going up is more
frequent than its going down (p <<.0005).
Most of my informants commented that
sexual drive or need does not go up, but rather
the knowledge of how intensely gratifying sex
is when intoxicated serves to make any
perceived sexual drive more attention getting
and desirable when intoxicated.
With respect to levels of intoxication, they
are the same for sexual desire per se going up
and for sexual desire going up when the
situation Is appropriate, but sexual desire
going down occurs at higher levels of
intoxication (p <.01 with respect to desire per
se, p <.0005 with respect to desire in
appropriate situations). My informants
indicate that sexual intercourse at very high
levels of intoxication can be an ecstatic,
overwhelming experience, but at these levels
chances are good that the user will be absorbed in his own inner experiences and not get interested in making
love with someone.
