Weed has done wonders for our sex life - callers on the pleasures of high sex
Marijuana-enhanced sex can apparently make the experience more pleasurable for some couples.
Some lovers claim that dagga can help with anxiety, improve orgasms and even stamina in bed, says clinical sexologist Dr Eve.
However, findings by sex researcher Justin Lehmiller suggest that, for men, getting high could be more of a sexual inhibitor than a sexual enhancer.
When marijuana is used, erectile dysfunction and other sexual problems may result, according to the research.

Dr Eve explains that the experience can differ across genders and depending on how the substance is ingested.
