    Study shows sex helps come nerves before public speaking

    LONDON - Forget pretending you are talking to one person or concentrating on a single point in the audience — having sex is good way to calm nerves before giving a speech or presentation.
    But Stuart Brody, a psychologist at the University of Paisley in Scotland, said it has to be full sexual intercourse to get the best results.
    He studied nearly 50 men and women who recorded their sexual activities for two weeks and analyzed its impact on their blood pressure levels when under acute stress, such as when giving a speech.
    Brody discovered that the volunteers who had sexual intercourse were the least stressed and had blood pressure levels that returned to normal more quickly than people who engaged in other types of sex.
    But people who had abstained from sex had the highest blood pressure response to stress.
    Even after taking into account stress due to work or other factors, the range of responses to stress were best explained by sexual behavior.
    “The effects are not attributable simply to the short-term relief afforded by orgasm but rather, endure for at least a week,” Brody told New Scientist magazine said on Wednesday.
    He believes that the release of the so-called “pair bonding” hormone oxytocin might explain the calming effect.

    Ok, Let's try a few......It can't all be A list, though.

    1) What about the audience watching?

    2) That's a better idea than drinking.

    3) I wonder if the president has a staff on hand for all of his speeches?

    4) I can't wait for the next promotional board.

    5) Just remember to take the gimp mask off when you're done.



    And let the games begin............

    I find having sex while speaking in public to be very stressful. I keep losing my place in the speech.
