I've taken Adderall every day for the last four years, and before that, time-released Ritalin for 12 years. Have I had sex without a stimulant in me? Yes, of course. But those times are usually reserved to morning "breakfast of champion" sessions.
Almost every other time I'm doing the deed, I have a stimulant in me.
Because I take it so frequently, Adderall doesn't impact me the way it does those who rarely take it. I simply feel normal on it, but that's not to say it doesn't have some negative side effects, such as making me more restless, quicker to agitation and more prone to bouts of anxiety.
Regardless, Adderall is part of my daily routine, and out of all the areas I see it impacting my life, my sex life is certainly one of the top.
Is sex different on Adderall? Absolutely. Here's how:
1. Everything Is Choppier
Not that this is a bad thing, but things don't flow as easily as they do when you're not on Adderall.
It's position to position and sensation to sensation, but there doesn't seem to be that natural rhythm that comes so easily when you're not on Adderall.
It's not that you can't get into it, in fact, it's the opposite. You're super into it, but that smooth, music-playing-in-the-background feeling is harder to achieve.
2. Touch Feels Better
Adderall pushes out neurotransmitters that make you happy every time you take it, so when it comes to physical touch, your brain has already made your body more hypersensitive to it.
Touch, of course, is something that is usually soothing to people, which is why medical trauma physicians, psychologists and various other doctors suggest physical touch to help heal those injured and mend problems in relationships.
When on Adderall, the positive effect touch normally has on anyone is intensified when you're under (or over) the sheets.
3. You Want Sex More When on Adderall
There is no doubt Adderall makes you "focused" on a lot of things, and one of those things is sex. Simply put, you're hornier on Adderall.
I find myself thinking about sex more throughout the day, and doing things outside of the norm that would facilitate sex, such as eating aphrodisiac foods. I actually crave black licorice sometimes now, and make a point to wear sexier undergarments, just in case.
Another bonus that comes along with this factor is there's less need for lubricant, which no one really likes to fiddle around with anyway.
4. Any Other Substance Is Intensified by Adderall
Because drugs have compound effects on each other, the effects of adding another substance to your body while on Adderall, certainly show up when having sex.
If you have a few cocktails before undressing, you don't necessarily feel more "drunk." Adderall tends to allow you to drink more without feeling as drunk, but you do feel the alcohol buzz more intensely. The same applies to any other drug you add to your body while having sex.
And I can say without any hesitation, marijuana plus Adderall makes for an intoxicatingly pleasurable combination for any sexual encounter.
5. You Have More Stamina
Yes, stamina in the bedroom applies to girls too. When I'm not on Adderall, I find myself getting tired more easily and being lazier about things in the bedroom.
On Adderall, I'm up for the challenge. You actually want to move more and try different positions, and you only get tired after extremely long sessions, if you tire at all.
6. You're More Experimental
I much prefer the lovey-dovey type of sex when not on Adderall, and the exact opposite when I'm on it. It's not to say I'm going "Fifty Shades of Grey" deep into things when I'm on it, but I'm more open to experimenting and trying new things.
It becomes something of a game, in the best possible use of the term. You already have the stamina to support you, and since your mind is going faster on the drug, you more easily find yourself trying out new, different and, dare I say, creative acts while you're doing it.
7. You're More Aggressive
Not at all in a bad way, but Adderall definitely tears down any shyness barriers, and makes me more energetic about everything that's happening during sex.
Personally, I like when guys take the lead in the bedroom, but I'm more likely to change up the positions and get really into any "acts" I'm performing when Adderall is pumping through my blood.
You're simply really into whatever's happening and not soft spoken about when you want things changed. The result? It makes sex sessions much more all-consuming and passionate than non Adderall-influenced sex.
8. It's Easier to Cross the Finish Line
All guys should know girls don't always orgasm during sex -- and some never do.
But adding Adderall into the mix sure makes it easier. Adderall has your blood flowing quicker already, and your sensations heightened. It's the perfect storm for making everything feel just that much better to make orgasms a more likely possibility.
I find Adderall also makes me more competitive. When you bring that mindset into the bedroom, you're simply more determined to make each session that much more rewarding than the next.
