Public speaking is a major cause of heightened panic, for many people it's feared more than death itself. Forget about trying to calm yourself down when speaking in front of a crowd by imagining them all naked, there's a better solution to stage fright also requiring seeing someone undressed.

In a Reuters' article (1/25/06), Stuart Brody, a psychologist at the University of Paisley in Scotland has discovered that the best way to calm one's nerves is to have sex before a big presentation.

Studying nearly 50 men and women who recorded sexual activities during a two-week period, he then analyzed their blood pressure levels when under extreme stress.

He discovered that sex calmed people down, helped to lower the number of hypertensive episodes and aided blood pressure levels to return to normal quickly. Interestingly, intercourse specifically had these beneficial results not other forms of sexual activity.

Meanwhile, those abstaining from any sex had the highest blood pressure responses. Perhaps, that doesn't bode well for those ill-tempered, high-strung folks we all secretly joke just need to get laid. Sexual behavior was still the best explanation for the range of responses even after factoring in stress due to work or other sources.

Now if you're thinking it's only a question of that inevitable afterglow effect, think again. Mr. Brody believes the calming effect may be attributable to the release of the so-called ‚Äúpair bonding‚Ä? hormone oxytocin and he explained to the New Scientist on Wednesday, ‚ÄúThe effects are not attributable simply to the short-term relief afforded by orgasm but rather, endure for at least a week.‚Ä?

President Bush is always calm as a cucumber in front of any audience even though he mostly mutters incoherently and doesn't have the best grasp of the English language yet. He must screw First Lady Laura even more often than he does the rest of us.
