I'm a virgin so my opinion isn't really valid.

However, for me, it would depend on the situation.  If I'm having a Debut with some really famous orchestra playing Rach 3, then of course piano over sex!

But if it's like every day practice, I think I would go for sex.

This is clearly dependent on a myriad of factors... And in my case, one has usually been the direct result of the other.

If I had to do without sex for the rest of my life it would be a case of "Oh dear ! How sad ! Never mind !" If I had to do without my music, I would feel a very grave loss indeed. I suppose that answers the question fairly succinctly.

Then again, I am well past middle age and my testosterone levels were probably lower than average even in my youth. Without going into details I consider it a blessing really, seeing the strife sex has caused my contemporaries over the years.

Both. Just not at the same time.

It's the atonal impressions being left elsewhere that are the problem.  :P

"Thunder, Lightning, Mesmerism, and Sex!" That is the title Harold Schonberg gave to his description of Franz Liszt at the piano in his book "The Great Pianists". If in doubt about why, I can't help you...  ::)

I prefer piano for sure , cz up to a certain age you can retire from sex but you
cannot retire from music.
Btw I heard that A.Scriabin developped some chords that have feelings related
 to sex or something like that.

Perhaps yes. Once I wake up I'll go to the piano, but the first hour is hard, as I just want to go back to sleep.

The commercials would probably declare me for a living dead anyway  :P  ;D But certainly, I'd prefer to be less tired, in general.

Mmm... ::) ::) ::) ::) ::) .a combination of both seems promising. But in what order? Excluding simultaneity: the atonal result, and the atonal trails...horror!!!!
Perhaps sex and thereafter piano,   if itís true the Latin  said: omne animal post coitum triste est (every animal after coiuts is sad)...
solo or ensamble, it's the same  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

Didn't lang lang orchestrate some kind of 100 hands workshop?

Can't say I've got experience on either side of the OP question for something of that magnitude..

Does having sex while playing the piano count?

You shouldn't view the two as mutually exclusive; if you were to do so, you would excel at neither.

Rubinstein apparently once said that you have to play the piano as though you were making love to it.  The reverse might also be true as good pianists should have good technique refined over years of caressing the keyboard.
