SEATTLE, Washington - The Fox Sports series Sport Science decided to investigate whether having sex several hours before athletic competition degrades an athlete's performance. Boxer Chris Byrd (and, thank goodness, his wife) were brought in to assist with the investigation.
They performed test after test upon Byrd both before sex and 4 hours after sex, and concluded that having sex did not negatively impact athletic performance. Parts 1 and 2 of the show are below. The tedious opening credits take about 2 minutes, and the shot of a gushing oil rig was unnecessary.
What I want to know is, does this apply to masturbation? Because I'm thinking about going golfing this afternoon.
UPDATE: Masturbation is fine! I just shot a career best 17-over 87 at Jefferson!
