Being a good lecturer needs..... more sex
The BBC has reported (admittedly a year ago) on a study at the University of Paisley that was looking at the impact of different forms of sex on stress levels. Blood pressure was monitored during a variety of situations designed to increase stress, including public speaking. And the study found that participants who had had penetrative sex had reduced blood pressure and recovered from stress quicker than all other groups. The worst off were those who abstained from sex. What does this mean for lecturers? Well I won't spell it out, but I suspect our stress reduction courses don't involve this kind of therapy ;)
