Exploring cannasexuality for women
‘Cannasexual’ is a term coined by Sex Educator Ashley Manta “…created to describe anyone who mindfully and deliberately combines sex and cannabis to deepen intimacy and enhance pleasure.”
For someone exploring the cannasexual space, incorporating cannabis with sexual intimacy and pleasures can still seem entirely foreign. Here’s a list of some things to know as you explore your cannasexuality from a woman’s perspective that can help you safely and comfortably incorporate the cannasexual lifestyle while breaking down some misconceptions and stigma surrounding cannabis and sex for other canna-curious people.
Do I have to smoke cannabis to become a cannasexual?
No, definitely not. There are so many different consumption methods that smoking is not the only way to incorporate it into your sexual practice. You can smoke a spliff before hitting the sheets with your partner, but according to statistics, most women would prefer other consumption methods. This is where topicals are super powerful! There are many sprays, oils, creams, and balms in the market that are made specifically for stimulating female genitalia. These topicals are infused with CBD, THC, or a hybrid of both to help enhance a sexual experience through your vulva!
If I use topicals, will I get high?
This is the biggest misconception! If you incorporate a cannabis-infused topical into your sexual practice, you won’t experience a head trip high. This type of topical is explicitly made for the mucosa of your vulva and vagina and will stimulate the nerve endings in that area which is the ‘high’ that you experience. However, if your partner performs oral sex after applying a cannabis-infused topical, your vulva has inadvertently become an “edible”, and your partner may experience a different type of high than you. Talk about eating out!
Does becoming a cannasexual make sex better?
This is the most common question, but to answer this, you need to ask yourself another important question as a cannabis consumer – ‘How do you want to feel?’. Sex is different for everyone, and knowing how you want to feel before, during, and after consensual sex can influence a sexual experience to be good or bad. Do you want to feel more relaxed? Or do you want to experience more stimulation in the clitoral region? Or do you want to experience a stronger orgasm? These are only a few ways cannabis can bring those ‘O’s’ into your life!
I would highly recommend the Stimulating Orgasm Oil by HighOnLove and Foria Awaken Natural Arousal Oil with CBD & Synergistic Botanicals.
Becoming a cannasexual is all about exploration
There are so many different strains of cannabis and methods of consumption that the ways to infuse cannabis into your intimate life are really limitless! It’s not just about getting high and having sex. It’s about enhancing a sexual experience through added pleasures! It’s also important to remember that cannabis is just like any other consumer product. Experimenting, asking the right questions and knowing what kind of sexual experience you want is the best way to find your cannasexual nirvana!
Don’t forget to have fun and be safe!
