In their newly released book TRANSFORMING ORGASMS with Psychedelics, Cannabis & Science, husband and wife team Nathaniel and Emily Morris describe a scientific methodology that you can use to test how cannabis and psychedelics affect you sexually.
Cannabis expert and coauthor Nathaniel Morris says: “Consider how biometric sensors like smartwatches have revolutionized the way people exercise. Accurate feedback about how your body is responding to an activity allows you to make better, more informed choices. This is true for sex. Monitoring your heart rate is one of many tools now available for people to measure how they are responding to cannabis and psychedelics in a sexual context.”
“Smart vibrators allow people to learn about their individual orgasm patterns. Most people aren’t even aware that an orgasm can be measured precisely using biometric sensors to detect patterns of rhythmic contractions on the pelvic floor. Identifying your typical orgasm pattern is intriguing in and of itself, but seeing how your orgasms are enhanced using cannabis and psychedelics is absolutely mind-blowing,” explains Emily Morris
Understanding your own sexuality is extraordinarily complex and multidimensional. Adding cannabis and psychedelics only increases the complexity. This book describes a testing methodology that people can use to discover what works best for them. It is based on a scientific journaling system that encapsulates the many variables by structuring the relevant information into seven categories:
- Drugs, dose, and method
- Set, setting and tools
- Laughing, crying and emotional release
- Desire and inhibition
- Genital response, pleasure, and euphoria
- Trance and connection
“A few generations ago, people did not think of science as something they could use to help them get in shape. Just as science revolutionized how people understand what it means to get in shape, it has the potential to revolutionize our pursuit of pleasure, connection, and trance-like states,” adds Nathaniel.
In this book, the husband-and-wife team argue that our ancestors almost certainly encountered psychedelic mushrooms and cannabis. Based on the behavior of modern humans, we can say with a good degree of certainty that these early humans would have experimented, mixing the pleasures of sex with the pleasures of psychoactive plants and fungi. We can now study how cannabis and psychedelics impact modern human sexual activity and make inferences about early human behavioral patterns. We now have clear evidence that eating these plants and fungi results in more sex and better sex. This also means natural selection would favor the early humans who incorporated the act of becoming intoxicated into their natural mating rituals. The authors argue that much of modern drug and alcohol use is the product of a genetically driven behavioral trait, as we incorporated these plants and fungi into our natural mating rituals.
