For months, the World Cup has been in the “top News”. All the newspapers were preoccupied with the preparation and the latest updates of Football. Every small detail, in this huge event, was studied deeply and profoundly. The private sexual life of players was not an exception.

Despite how awkward it may seem, some team managers banned their players from having sex during the world cup.

We will not be looking for sex or having sex at the World Cup just to have it, we are going to go after what we came for, a competition that gives us the opportunity to rise above and do something really great,” declared Mexican national team coach Miguel Herrera.

Brazilian manager Luiz Felipe Scolari, who in 2002 imposed a sexual ban over his player, allowed his players to have sex during the 2014 world cup “but no acrobatic stuff.”

Therefore, the question is “how does sex affect athletic performance?

In 2000, the Clinical Journal of Sport Medicine published a study titled   “Does Sex the Night Before Competition Decrease Performance? that ended up concluding that sexual activities had no detrimental influence on physiological capability. However, no clear decision was made regarding  the psychological impact of sex over the players.
The researchers insisted also that a lot depends on the individual: "The performance of some people will improve with sex the night before competition and the performance of others will be hindered”.

Deciding whether to allow or ban sex may be a turning point for the players’ performance. Let us hope that the coaches are taking good decisions for the sake of their teams.
