I respectfully disagree. If I go home at lunch and,
well, engage in oral sex, my productivity isn't likely
to go down. If I do it 10 times each night, my
productivity isn't likely to go down. If I break out
the bong ten times each night (or the heroin or the
crackpipe), chances are my productivity isn't going to
be very good.
