To Bas...Sex before fighting?

I know it's kind of a silly question, but there's been much debate about it. Some say it improves the eyesight and helps one get rested so they're fresh. Others say it makes you weak, unfocused, and diminishes aggressive tendencies. Both opinions are probably a load of crap, but give us your opinion.

Historically athletes abstain before competition, so as not to drain their energy. I would think abstenance would also make you more aggressive.

In Ricksons documentary he makes an analogy about horses.. something about how all race horses are virgins untill their done racing, he says it gives you more energy when you hold back and he doesnt have sex 2 weeks before a fight..He admits its just a theory in his own mind though

I know from experience that if i have sex before a hockey game i play alot better. im just calmer and more patient. I think its more the activity of going for all night that makes you tired not the actual sex.

UH, no. If you suck, you suck.

My wrestling coach use to tell use to "stay away from your girlfreinds" before matches. I think its true. Its hard-wired in ourselves from evolution. The chase is why we all get up in the morning. Chasing for food, or chasing for poo-nanny. Once the chase is over (i.e. get laid) say goodby to your primal edge.

I agree with the logic of this thinking. Not saying it is right but it is logical.

Actually, Tito was on Howard Stern and he said it was bullshit. He said the only way it can hinder you if you stay up all night before a fight.
