View Full Version : Does sex weaken legs?

06-17-2002, 04:35 PM
I was listening to a boxer being interviewed last week. He was asked "does sex really weaken legs" or something about abstaining from sex before a major fight. He said when he lost the championship he had sex close to that fight. And that he didn't before any of his other fights. I think he said the approximate length of time he would abstain from sex before a major fight would be about 2 months. Maybe leg strength & endurance are important in tournaments that last several days. I'm not talking talking about a small one day tournament that might only last from about 5 to 15 hours. Is this so? Is there any truth to that old saying? I've never really heard the logic behind it. I thought it would be okay to bring this up while I was reading the thread on sexual preferences among players.

Well Eddie, I'm no sexpert, but I'm pretty sure that if it doesn't weaken your legs (at least temporarily) one of you is doing it wrong! /ccboard/images/icons/blush.gif

See Lorri, your quote works even in this situation ;-) sid

Maybe that's one of the reasons Pro teams like football and basketball teams are not allowed to sleep with their spouses before big games ???

Two Months?? You can keep the championship!!

Two months and I'd be ready to bite someone's body parts off too!

Its funny this topic came about because they did medical research to see if such a relationship existed, but in fact, it said that some sex actualyl might increase a persons performance because of the hormones released.

And to go even further, a few professional teams of varying sports permit there athletes to do the mambo #5 almost any time.

So that's why my breaks have gotten weak!

Maybe a scientific study should be undertaken at the next CCB get together. Jake

Maybe I'm not having enough sex and that explains why I keep jumping the parking meters when I walk down the street. HUMMMMMMMM....interesting....

2 weeks, 2 months, 2 years or 2 decades. Too much sex and I don't want to play pool at all.......

To answer, your question, if there is a relationship to leg strength, sex, and pool playing.. I haven't noticed it, from either before, during or afterwards.

1. Exactly what does this have to do with brown bears?

2. The pool table usually provides the support.

3. With the proper leather restraints...

Fred &lt;~~~ at least, that's what I can remember...

Damn, I gotta get me some of that. I don't know about any of you folks but when I get a little something something I play an awful lot better. Especially if the woman I chose to play "scotch doubles" with chews me up and spits......er........well, you get the point.

I think I'll have to start showing up for all of the NEWT and CAT events now!

MM...willing to help out for a scientific cause

You only get the ones that spit?
(Oh God I'm going to regret this one in the morning! LOL)

If your weak in the knees to begin with, I guess you could get like that. I remember sports coaches telling us to stay away from our ladies during the season to keep us "Focused"...hahahahahaha. They were right, I was focused on one thing, thats for sure!!!

Voodoo...held state High School Sack record two consecutive years while trying to make my knees weak!!!

Gayle in Md,.... HA HA HA, and I was going to do housework today!!!Amazing how the power of suggestion can change your plans for the day!

I guess "felt on the table" can have more than one meaning?

Eric &gt;must be my evil twin talking

It's not the sex that weakens the legs, but the pursuit of the sex!


06-20-2002, 08:08 PM
Gee Eric, will you bite me too? (Lorri knows Eric has no evil twin! LOL)
