A groupie once said that men perform better when they are emptied of excess spermulate by sexual release. She might be onto something, because whether we are trying to win a game, perform a concert or trying to figure out the Riemann Hypothesis, we cannot focus if our netherregions are crying for a release. Maybe a pill to temporarily disable the urge? Think of what we (men) can accomplish!
Wrong, wrong, wrong. I met a technically brilliant saxophonist in a dance band - cleanest player and quickest reader I'd ever seen. I invited her to play some jazz with my quartet. She said "No - jazz lead is for men. It's all about strutting your stuff in front of the ladies." Though a good friend has admitted almost colliding with Stonehenge whilst "flying with the wrong brain".
Male career politicians clearly had no friends at school, hence their policies are indistinguishable from masturbation. Females seem to fall into two groups: Head Girl (Thatcher, May, Clinton) or Jolly Rebel (Edwina Curry, Jess Phillips). Perhaps it's time to put the JRs in charge - they couldn't do any worse.
Not sure about Currie.
Footballers and boxers are thought to perform better pre petit-mort,
Thinking about ex-girl friends gives me the same reaction.

No trophy, no battle.
but no enemy is giving up foreskins without a fight.

Thus minimising friendly fire
