Winter Olympians Take Note: Get It On! Sex is Good for Athletic Performance

We’ve all heard the puritan message, warning athletes to abstain from collaborative nakedness the night before a big game.  Muhammad Ali famously abstained from love-making for six weeks prior to a fight.  Recent studies, however, have shown that contrary to the antiquated belief that getting down would lower athletic performance, regular sex enhances competition performance.

According to a document given to India’s cricket team, sex increases performance.   “From a physiological perspective, having sex increases testosterone levels, which cause an increase in strength, energy, aggression and competitiveness,” the document said.

“Conversely, not having sex for a period of a few months causes a significant drop in testosterone levels in both males and females, with the corresponding passiveness and decrease in aggression.”

Of course, sometimes partners in nakedness can be difficult to procure.  In that event, the document advises, “If you want sex but do not have someone to share it with, one option is to go solo whilst imagining you have a partner, or a few partners, who are as beautiful as you wish to imagine.”

Important findings and certainly relevant to Winter Olympic hopefuls in the lead-up to the Games in Vancouver.
