A: making whoopee does not affect the ability of the muscle body, assures Dr. Irwin Goldstein, director of the Alvarado Hospital of San Diego Sexual Medicine Clinic.

But there was no apparent reason, he says. "There are no distinct physiological reasons to avoid sex in any type of athletic competition," says Boone.
As you might be expected, there is a lot of research on this topic. But Boone and one handful of others have studied the impact of sex on athletic performance and found no reason to abstain.
Boone published a small study in 1995 showing that men performed just as well in a treadmill test then had sex as when they abstained. A study conducted in 2000 by Switzerland researchers found similar results with stationary bikes.Facebook
