well SOMEONE had to start the discussion!!!
Not sure the average 'bout of nookie' (who wrote THAT Benny Hill?)using the same amount of calories as climbing two flights of stairs......must be a pretty short 'bout of nookie'!
I e-mailed the link to my girlfriend (who's currently in America).
I'm yet to get her to speak about the subject
2 flights of stairs? I thought us runners would be at least burning enough calories to run up the Empire State Building
Beats the normal stretching before running
I knew it!!!! I knew that sex wasn't the most calorie buring activity you could do. There are loads more things that make me more out of breath than 15 mins of sex, icluding actually taking the stairs. The 3 flights of stairs at college always have me gasping for oxygen lol. Sex is easy compared to that lol. (
Agree with the sex not affecting performance the next day. I had sex the night before before race day. Needed something to calm my nerves so i could sleep and i didn't think alcohol was wise. Ran my 1st 10k in 56.50 the next day - only 10 secs per mile slower than my personal best for that distance.
Do not believe that sex the night before helps relieve muscle aches after the race tho. My hip really hurt and it hurt to walk the next day after my race. Possibly sex right after the race would help, but u might wanna take a shower first lol.
Sex helps women block out pain and men sleep.
What does that say about us?
I wouldn't recomend sex in the middle of the night before a race... I found doing so did calm my nerves, but on the other side I was knackered the following morning.... maybe I should have stuck with just the once before bed rather than....
Once point about the article
male athletes were made to run on a treadmill 12 hours after having had sex. They showed no decline in stamina, or mental and physical performance
12 Hours is that 12 hours on a treadmill or 12 hours after sex ?
Duckinator, I think you should have kept that quiet, don't want the Mrs to come back and tell you it works!
The night before, or in the morning before? Or both?
Doesn't seem to do me (or my Squeeze) any harm. We've both had several PBs over various distances in the last couple of years
But then, we've not tried NOT having sex before a race.....

Without being to crude given the fact that many reading that are marathon runners I think the person writing the peice has had some seriously bad boy friends in the sack?
Oh err actually maybe it's written by a ex?
