It All Depends on How You Look At It

There has been a flurry of articles regarding the recent research by Dr. Stuart Brody from Paisley University about the stress-reducing efffects of sexual intercourse. In light of this, it's interesting to note the different spins one finds in different media outlets.

Case in point, the Christians over at Life Site News were quick to point out that these effects were limited to heterosexual intercourse:

new UK study adds to those findings revealing that only heterosexual intercourse - not homosexual sex or self abuse - has significant stress-reducing effects, as measured by blood pressure responses to stressful situations.

However over at MSNBC, no mention was made of this fact, with the focus more on the "public speaking effect."

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.
