A World of Distractions!
Modern society creates so many mental and emotional distractions that pure hedonistic sexual enjoyment often seems like a distant fantasy. It is difficult to ‘turn off’ the distractions of the modern world to get into the mood for love. This is especially true for women. Males will seek out sexual pleasure even if they have to pay for it. Hence the existence of pornography, strippers and prostitution!
In most cultures around the world there are harsher societal judgements that women face for enjoying their sexuality. Whatever the reason, it is often difficult for a female to ‘let go’ into sensual pleasure.
This is why so many people consume drugs or alcohol to temporarily 'leave' this world and enter the world of pleasure.
Alcohol as a Libido Enhancer
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”.
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 the patriarchal ‘double standards’ that make it so difficult for women to enjoy their libido.
Marijuana for Lovers
Sadly there are few scientific studies on the subject. But based on anecdotal reports, women who are 'high' on marijuana still more in control of their faculties than if they are drunk. She can feel sensual but she still knows who she is and what her boundaries are.
We advocate the use of 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 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.
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!
Part of the social justice goals of Tantric Ganja will be to produce reports and data of how marijuana use by women is increasing respect for consent culture and reducing rape.
