I still vote Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, nothing feels better than making someone say "uncle." And, depending on which school you go to it really isn't that expensive. But on a side note the "sexercising" doesn't sound bad either, lol. You could do both really.

Try Scuba Diving!


If you want some relaxation Scuba Diving is great.

YES, YES, YES... but can get about as pricey as our profession...

Yes it can. I am a scuba instructor. It is one of those great professions that cost money instead of making it.

Hmm, when I get some work I'll have to get in touch with you, scuba has been on my list of skills to learn.

ADDICT!!!

Hell everyone on this forum is one... just look in your gear closet!

I just started a Facebook group called 'Spontaneous Consumption' with the idea of quick planning dives on Monday for that weekend. Lets face it, the better our long range vacation plans are, the better the job offer will be (especially if prepaid and non-refundable.) So the focus is to contact dive operators that don't have anything booked and will give a discount for us to fill seats... sort of Travelocity style.

Swim like a fish? no way that's so oldschool.
Fly like a bird instead.
Ever tried Paragliding anyone?
It will keep you fit but isnt too strenuous, once you have a wing and a nice hill nearby it is basically free, Spain has good weather for it and it will cure any fear you have of heights.
It's the biggest thrill to be flying along a ridge with the birds, similar to scuba in that you are in a totally alien environment into which humans rarley venture. Your first couple of flights will be sometimes scary but once you come to terms with the fact that you are flying through the air with nothing below your feet and only a piece of nylon and some strings keeping you up there, and realize that you are actually quite safe there is no better way to take your mind off stress. You will not be able to think about anything else even for hours after you have landed.
People will constantly suggest to you that you should take your steadicam up with you when you fly but I would strongly advise against this as it is sure to lead to advanced symptoms of dying or at the very least loads of ugly pain.

"Come fly with me lets fly lets fly away"

Huffing a can of red Krylon can relieve stress... and brain cells. Then again it could permanently relieve your stress so you may not want to do it.

To add to our list of vices/stress relievers
or if you prefer "more ways to injure/kill ourselves",
I've found shooting guns to be a nice relax as well as a similar art to operating. Just don't mix up which one you do what with and you should be fine.

Anyone for Russian roulette?
Could this/should this be combined with Ron's suggestion...
