    I used to think this was nothing but an old myth. Then, the other day, I did just that and wasn't feeling 100% the next morning, while playing tennis.

    You depleted your testosterone stores the night before you needed them the most. Learn the lesson and tell a friend. There is only so much gold to go around. Use it wisely. ;)

    Notice that this same myth doesn't seem to apply to women.

    The secret -- stay on bottom ;)

    Nothing but a myth. I'm guessing this thread is nothing but a boast from a kid.

    Not really related to tennis (but serious), after 2 to 3 times at night, I'd feel better the next day for school and work. Butta... masturbation just does the exactly the opposite. I have no clue.

    Not a boast (on an internet forum?!). Not a kid. Just asking, that's all.

    It's not a myth, but it's different for everyone. There's no truth to the theory that you decrease your testosterone levels by having sex. If anything, your testosterone levels will actually rise a little the more sex that you have.

    Some athletes prefer to have sex the night before a big competition to relax themselves and others feel the exact opposite.

    Oscar de la Hoya said on Tonight Show a few years ago that he avoids it because it weakens his knees. Perhaps he goes the distance.

    Scud Stud is the living example...

    "Cash also commented that Philippoussis's active sex life had affected his career. The 1987 Wimbledon champion said Philippoussis spent the night before a match at the Australian Open in bed with Russian Anna Kournikova and celebrated reaching the semi-finals of the 1998 US Open by going to a strip club. "One of the trickiest problems I encountered was how do you tell a fit, eligible young man that it's probably not a good idea to spend the night with Anna Kournikova before a big match," Cash wrote.

    The News of the World also focused on Philippoussis's sex life in an interview with former girlfriend Melanie Maudran, who said he insisted on having sex before matches, including just before going on to centre court at Wimbledon. "

    I don't remember for sure if Yogi Berra said this, but the quote goes like this - it wasn't the sex that made you tired the next day, but staying out all night looking for it...

    Again, I'm not bragging, just asking. Normally, I never play in the mornings. So, I hadn't realized this. I guess, it depends, too... as everything.

    Btw, I can have sex any time I want; I'm married! Well, almost any time; at least, when my wife and me are not pissed at each other :mrgreen:

    I think its just a myth, if anything, i think its a possotive thing, gets your mind off of the pressure of the match.

    I wouldn't mind.

    In mixed doubles, wouldn't that strengthen team unity, anyway? Win-win situation!

    I don't know if it's scientifically proven to be detrimental, but some people believe it. For example, I've heard about soccer/football coaches who prohibited their players from having sex before big matches.

    I would recommend letting the women do all the work before an important match. No need to show your partner how much stamina you have, since you'll pay for it on the court the next day.

    Hmmm. So, the night before the big match, you send a callgirl to your opponents room! Heck, send over a couple of 6-packs as well.

    It may cost you some money, but a win is a win, right?

    Having sex never affected my play. Not having sex has probably affected my play because I was probably a bit grumpy. :)

    On a somewhat related note, a well-known triathlete coach suggests that all his clients have sex once a day or **********. His theory is that it stimulates the production of testosterone. I don't think much of the theory, but I love its application. :)

    Lawrence Taylor used to hire "women-for-hire" to visit the hotel rooms of his opponents for this very purpose.

    Lol Jonny - You could too, just not with someone older than you. Actually I don't really know the laws over there but I know the age of consent here, in NY is 17.

    Regardless of your age, if you do not get consent from the other party, its called rape :p. And the police always take the side of the woman....

    Well if you "arrived" 5 or 6 times, you'd probably feel drained, but if it was a one time "arrival", you shouldn't be effected at all.

    Yeah, keep it that way. Look what it got me - two kids along with a 3 year tennis ban ... but now I've got the GET OUR OF JAIL FREE card.

    However, it's the cycle of life and I ain't complaining as they're beautiful kids. Now I'm trying to get my elder girl to learn tennis so that I can spend even more time on the courts!
