I have attached the following quote because I was watching a HBO Special about sex. It said that people with an active sex life on average make less money than those who don't which is interesting. I know for me personally, sex can be a tension or stress reliever and it can also be an activity I prefer than other dull ones. I believe you can be more focused, you are driving that energy that you are releasing into working, getting a task done and etc. I can see how it would work out where you are more creative, a better balance and etc.
