Viceland went to San Francisco to meet Ashley Mantra, a sex educator specialised in what could be called cannabic intimacy.Thanks to weed, Ashley transforms the sex lives of her patients.
According to Ashley, a cannasexual is a person who consciously and deliberately combines sex and cannabis. Above and beyond the sensations which are altered, it’s the state of mind that plays a determining role. Cannabis allows to leave one’s own head and enter one’s body.
One must keep in mind that THC works above all else on the brain, modifying our perception of reality. The fact that two partners are high can diminish pressure of performance within a couple, to open up, to be uninhibited. Basically to relax, or even try out new things.
