Can smoking weed prevent you from getting an erection? When I smoked pot it was almost impossible to get an erection, even with my girl giving me head. Is this bad?

well i honestly think it does, beacause im 17 and my boyfriend is 19 and he can get it semi hard, but its only fully hard when i give him head. I asked him to quit to smoking and hes been smoking since 13 all the time. He quit smoking but still had the problem of getting hard, i think it actually stop him from getting a boner permanently, if thats possible. It would be hard until we went to have sex and it would go soft, but he would still put it in and while its in it gets hard, so it isnt really a problem, but its not normal. Just dnt smoke it all the time and im sure youll be fine, you dnt want it to happen permanently.

Dude I had the exact same problem tonight. I thought smoking would make sex better but instead I lost my erection right away. The harder I tried the softer it got. I think it was just because I got really nervous, I couldn't enjoy what was going on.

pot is pretty good for sex i find because it calms you down sometimes and makes you more relaxed. i find that a joint befor sex is better because everything feels better, the only down side to this is if you get drymouth and munchies... then all you really wanna go is eat and drink and watch tv.

I'm 24 I have found that when smoking weed I feel harder than I would usually and it doesn't go semi like it sometimes does, I assume it's due to the fact when your stoned you think less of the pressure to "perform" so to speak, it might just be the sensation is increased due to being stoned, everyones different of course.

But if you can't get it up while stoned definitely stay away from it.

ya for sure smoking pot lowers sperm count and the chances of getting an erection. I dont think it is much of a problem though becuase there are always thing to get a boner but not thing not to get a boner. if you get that.

Im 16 but my boyfriend is 18 we had a little session last night of smoking the pot but it affected me in a different way to it affecting him it made me hyper and him really paranoid. i wanted sex but he didnt but he give in to me after time but we found it took ages for him to get a hard on and when he had one it went soft straight away i think this was the pot because ive never had this problem before with him he claims to say he is never smoking it again

hi im 15 n i smoked about 1/4 oz of weed last night n this fit girl was giving me head n all i could get was a semi no hard on for me lol owell 2day i went rnd there when i wernt stoned n everythink was working :)

also the woman who said 'i have witnessed some ones ralationship go down hill just as she gave birth to her baby because her boyfreind was getting paranoid saying she was danceing in eminem videos, also they didnt have a good sex life any more as the weed was courseing difficulties to him getting an erection. and as well as that my ex boyfreind who was smokeing it after 5months of our ralationship he started beating me up because of paranioer'

this seems a bit over-exaderated either that or it was not just weed cause weed does nt do this to ya ....

Actually if anything I've found that being stoned keeps me harder for a longer period of time. That fact alone is why my girlfriend likes to smoke a bit every now and then before a romp. It affects everyone differently, though, so if you're having problems stay away from it if you know sex is a possibility.

Yos agony auntI live in Amsterdam and so have had plenty of experience with pot. I have not experenced or heard of this happening. However everyone reacts differently and what you describe sounds very plausible.

My guess would be that you are nervous about your performance in some way, and the pot exacerbated that. It's easy to get slightly paranoid and wonder what other people are thinking of you when stoned... which is a sure-fire way to lose an erection.

You've answered your own question, haven't you? :)

If you must get stoned, try being less stoned. You need to have a certain level of concentration to be able to maintain an erection. Your brain is too fried to have that concentration. It's happening for exactly the same reason that someone who is too drunk can not maintain an erection. You need a certain amount of conscious involvement - so - don't get so stoned and you'll notice a big difference.

Lemonpixie agony auntMarijuana can decrease testosterone. Lots of men who smoke it long term also develop the dreaded man-boobs! It relaxes you so naturally it's difficult to become aroused when your nervous system is dulled. Sorry for the bad news but lay off the weed when you wanna get laid
