People have probably been combining cannabis and sex since the dawn of cannabis consumption. When you find two things that make you feel awesome, it’s a no brainer to put them together. So it goes without saying that a ton of people are probably going to include cannabis in their Valentine’s Day activities, whether it’s a focal point or an afterthought. But don’t you want to do it (heh) better than all of them? Sure, you could just pull a crumpled joint out of your pocket in the middle of making out and sheepishly offer it to your partner, but why settle for that amateur shit? Why not make a whole night of it, and arrange the romantic, sensual encounter of you and your partner’s (or recent Tinder match’s) dreams? If that sounds like a daunting task, never fear. We planned the perfect Valentine’s day canna-coitus for you so you don’t have to.
First Things First, Prepare Ahead of Time
If this is you or your partner’s first foray into stoned sex, don’t spring the idea on them the day of. Make sure to have an honest, sober conversation about whether you two (or three or four or five) are comfortable with the idea of high sex, and discuss any concerns you might have as well as any limits or boundaries you might want to establish. Being intoxicated can complicate consent, so it’s important to make sure that everyone’s fully on board and excited about the idea of high sex before anyone smokes. And once things start to get smokey and steamy, it’s good to verbally check in again and make sure your partner is still enthusiastically on the same page as you.
Pick the Right Method of Consumption
In general, edibles probably aren’t the best choice for a trip to pound town. They’re unpredictable both in terms of how strongly they’ll affect you and when they’ll kick in. You and your partner could eat the same edible at the same time and the high could still develop at completely different speeds, which would be no fun when the point of the exercise is for the two of you to be in sync in every way.High Love. This cannabis-infused chocolate is designed to be fast acting and it’s portioned into low doses of THC, plus it’s packed full of lots of other natural aphrodisiacs to get you in the mood. Unfortunately it’s only sold in Colorado, so if you get a chance to try it please report back. strains that are supposed to be especially good for setting the mood. In fact, Sexxpot was specifically designed as a pre-sex smoke aimed at enhancing women’s pleasure, and if you’re in the San Francisco area you should definitely give it a try. If Sexxpot isn’t for you, we recommend G-Force for Indica fans, Jahwaiian for those who prefer Sativa, and Silver Calyx if you want to walk the middle road with a hybrid.
Dabs are a good choice for more seasoned smokers. You’ll feel the effects immediately, and since concentrate is more potent than flower you can spend less time smoking and get to the good stuff sooner. However dabs probably aren’t the best aphrodisiac if you don’t already use them regularly, because it’s easy to overindulge and get to a point where you don’t even want to move, much less engage in mind-blowing sex. Foria’s Pleasure spray. Based on countless testimonials, it seems the hype is real and applying Foria Pleasure before foreplay usually leads to better sex and more intense orgasms. Like many other cannabis-infused oils, Foria is not compatible with latex condoms, so make sure you’re staying safe during your sexy adventures. And if no one involved in your Valentine’s Day sex has a vagina, never fear! Foria also offers Explore, a rectal suppository that by all accounts works wonders in the back door. Explore is designed to be latex safe, but because the FDA won’t evaluate products that contain cannabis, there’s no official stamp of approval for condom compatibility. If you don’t have access to THC infused products, CBD lube is also fun and effective. While the experience might not be as intense as it would be with THC, you can have our personal assurance that Cheekywell’s O Female Lubricant Enhanced with CBD is awesome and well worth the price of a bottle.
