PR Puffs: Musicians have better sex, says poll

Why a fast fret hand is a win win

PR Puffs: Musicians have better sex, says poll

PLAYING a musical instrument can supercharge your sex life, it says here.

A report by Warrington-based Dawsons Music, which has shops in Liverpool and many other places, found that "playing an instrument can make you more attractive, a better parent, more employable and even a better lover".

The independent survey, of 1,000 UK residents, looked into the wider effects and benefits of playing a musical instrument.

Highlights of the findings include;

  • The majority of those questioned found musicians more attractive than non-musicians

  • A third believed playing an instrument improved your career prospects

  • Nearly a third believe playing makes you a better lover

  • Nearly three-quarters wished they had spent more time learning to play when they were young

Mark Taylor, managing director of Dawsons, which sells musical instruments, said: “As musicians we know the benefits of being able to play go far beyond impressing people. Musicians are more creative, better at solving problems and, as this report confirms, more attractive to a potential partner.

”Spending just half an hour playing, once or twice a week, can have a hugely positive impact on your wellbeing, and could inspire you to look at other parts of your life where you could make changes for the better.”

There's many a good tune played on an old violin........So I'm led to believe........I speak as one who played the comb.............aspired to the spoons.......story of my life, it was never musical.

I can remember a time in Baton rouge when "Our Monica was blowing Sad while our Bobby sang the blues."

Talking of bagpipes remind me of a throw away line from The Big Yin. A line you never hear "She's the one who's Sh###ing the banjo player"

If playing an instrument makes you a better lover, do drummers suffer erection problems?

BiddyJanuary 5th 2014.

I just nipped in next door........ there was a hell of a barney going on..........So I thought I'd beat a hasty retreat.........I bumped into Dizzy in the corridor......All perfectly innocent

AnonymousJanuary 5th 2014.

Are you sure it was a corridor and not a back passage?

Now that you mention it, it could have been, it reminded me of the blackout, you had to light up to see who had brought you home.

Ah! A thespian quoting the Bard, how refreshing.......Echo and the Bunnymen, they went to Hollywood with some geezer called Frankie and his mate Benny.

AnonymousJanuary 7th 2014.

I thought Frankie and Benny's was on Edge Lane, but wondered if that might be too classy for Ian McCulloch and co.

Martha FitzsimmonsJanuary 7th 2014.

I read on wikipedia that Ian McCulloch bought two council houses on his old street and had them knocked into one, apparently he spends his days standing on his balcony smoking and going "NERRR!" at the job centre opposite.

Ah NostalgiaJanuary 7th 2014.

That was one of our kids, "NERR". He was always saying it. He sounded lie Maggie Ranson's goat.

Esther Rantzen's teethJanuary 7th 2014.

So Ian McCulloch is a NERRR-do-well?

AnonymousJanuary 7th 2014.

He waved at me once from a Taxi. He was smoking a cigar with his other hand.

BiddyJanuary 8th 2014.

I've just seen Noddy Holder next door....He ignored me............Mind you I've been ignored by better than the likes of him.
