LSAT and Sex don't mix?

Postby magicman554 » Sat Dec 11, 2010 6:04 pm

I've taken a bunch of preptests over the past few months and for some reason I've seemed to notice that sex (or sex with self) negatively impacts my scores. I'm talking like a 3-4 point score difference if I don't score the night prior.

Just trying to get a larger statistical sample before reaching a conclusion....

Doesnt seem to have made any difference while practicing. i would think good sex would be beneficial while lousy sex (if you were still thinking about it) might hurt. :D

Im going to assume youre a guy since your name is magic"man".

Sex the night before? Good. Sex the morning of? Bad. Giving yourself a treat in the bathroom minutes before the test? Terrible. Just terrible.

Scientifically speaking, orgasm releases the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. This helps in memory recall and retention. However, if you skeet too much your body overproduces acetylcholine which can lead to anxiety, nausea and impotence.

Ultimately, you're taking the last. Not Captain Winkie. If you prepared adequately, you'll do fine on the test.

My regimen is usually 1-2 times a day, each day leading up to a PT. Took the LSAT this morning, but was still sort of randy during the RC section. Something about highly carious carbs, I guess.

cariogenic carbs.

and, i think your problem with the lsat isn't having sex the night before. i think it's getting boners in the middle of a fucking reading passage about tooth decay.

Best. Troll. Ever. My hat is off to you, sir.

Edit: No, wait. Day of LSAT I realized, "Holy shit. I've been jerking it everyday right before I PT'd (irony, right?). Now I feel all pent up and shit." So I had to sneak off, find a crap hole, and yank one off. Like three dudes came in and pee'd in the urinal next to the stall, too. anyone else run into this?

You're welcome, TLS.

Jesus. If you whipped it out during the test, I wonder how LSAC's investigation summary would read...

"Utilized prohibited items at prohibited times."
"Created a disturbance to other test takers."

Just follow your daily regiment and don't worry about it. Remove every disctraction you can including the loaded gun syndrom.

All of a sudden, I thought of Mickey's line in Rocky:
Women weaken legs!

What "self-love" will do to your testing hand, I don't know.

Depends...

too much makes you too tired to concentrate, too little makes you too jittery to concentrate.
