Sexual ‘Permission Slips’ for Women: Alcohol versus Marijuana
It is hard to ‘turn off’ the world to get into the mood for love. This is especially true for women. Males seem to have that built in drive which makes them seek out sex to the point where they will pay for it. Hence the existence of pornography, exotic dancers and prostitution!
A woman’s sexuality is more complicated. Perhaps it is due to the bigger emotional ‘pull’ that babies and children have as well as the harsh societal judgements that women receive for enjoying their sexuality. Whatever the reason, it is difficult for a female to ‘let go’ into sensual pleasure when she is thinking about whether the children can hear, if the garbage has been taken out and so on.
Modern society creates so many mental and emotional distractions that pure hedonistic sexual enjoyment often seems like a distant fantasy. This is why so many people consume drugs or alcohol to leave this world and enter the world of pleasure. And nature has created many plant based products that help humans to do this!
Traditionally alcohol has been used by women in the Western world as a relaxant to ‘get in the mood’ for love making. Alcohol in a sense acts as a ‘permission slip’. A few glasses of wine or champagne can work wonders to forget responsibility and the patriarchal ‘double standards’ that make it so difficult for women to surrender to their libido.
While we totally support alcohol as a libido enhancer for women, the problem is that the more alcohol a person consumes the less capable they are of making rational judgements.
As reported in Campus Safety, “43% of the sexual victimization incidents involve alcohol consumption by victims and 69% involve alcohol consumption by the perpetrators”.
With marijuana that is smoked or ‘vaped’, the results are different. A woman who smokes marijuana is still more in control of her faculties than if she is drunk. She can feel sensual but she still knows who she is and what her boundaries are.
The exceptions are when marijuana is consumed with other drugs or alcohol. And also if marijuana is consumed in edible form. The results can be quite strong and can impair judgement as much as alcohol.
This is the ethical, cause related and feminist purpose behind this project. We advocate the use of vaping or smoking marijuana as a better ‘permission slip’ than alcohol because it gives a woman more control of her actions while at the same time allowing her to ‘let go’ into her pleasure centers. In other words, we hope that increasing marijuana consumption among women as an alternative to alcohol will reduce incidents of rape and sexual assault.
The key for a female is to know the best way to consume it that works for her! For some women vaping might be better. For others smoking or eating small doses. Once a woman finds the dose that brings out her sensuality she should stick with it.
With the strong and ever growing movement towards medical marijuana or outright legalization in the USA and elsewhere in the world, there are new strains of pot that cater to almost every personality and mood type.
Marijuana might not be for every female. But we have found that there are many many women who are already using it to enhance their sexual pleasure. The goal of this website is to celebrate those women who can then inspire others.
Marijuana has been illegal for so long that for some women, it is associated with feelings of paranoia and other non-sensual feelings. We totally understand that. However, as marijuana becomes increasingly legal and available, more women are trying it now without the fears of the past.
We are already receiving stories from women about how they feel more sensual and in control when using marijuana as opposed to alcohol. In other words, if more women use it as their sensual drug of choice, marijuana can help to reduce rape while at the same time increasing pleasure!
If the Tantric Ganja Pornumentary can support this effort, and we start receiving reports and data of how marijuana use by women is actually reducing rape, then we will consider this project a success!
If you don't live in the Portland, you can still play a role in supporting this project:
- Share your story. Do you have any personal experiences or anecdotes that, based on your use of marijuana versus alcohol, have made you feel more control with the former with less of a feeling or possibility that you might be raped or date raped? Send stories to: email@example.com.
- Support this project! Help us to make this pornumentary a reality! Our most important goal is to reduce all forms of rape by giving women an opportunity to see there is a safer and perhaps even more pleasurable alternative to alcohol to 'get in the mood'!
