If you’ve seen “Raging Bull,” you know some athletes have the ill-conceived notion that having sex before a competition is bad for performance. But what about having a ton of sex? Like, enough sex to qualify as a workout? (We’ve all been there, right? Right?) Can one be exhausted from having too much sex?
Chilean tabloid paper La Cuarta is accusing Alexis Sanchez of having too much sexual intercourse with his wife. Apparently, the beautiful Laia Grassi is wearing on Sanchez, who plays forward for Arsenal, and is leaving him too tired to compete. Here’s a Google Translate-d passage from the article, which is always pretty funny:
…the National Front has an extensive day of practice with the club and when he comes home, delicious Laia Grassi asks for his share of love.
Arsenal just lost to Manchester United… but Sanchez has eight goals in his last 10 matches, and has played in 27 matches for both his club team and the Chilean national team since July. So, not really sure where the “burn out” aspect comes into play here.
Furthermore, Sanchez was also recently accused of texting the former Miss Chile behind Grassi’s back. Unless he’s texting this other woman to say “I need to get away from my beautiful girlfriend who wants to have sex too much, I can’t take it,” something isn’t adding up here.
In any case, we ask all red-blooded males and females, and anyone else, for that matter: Would you turn down this woman if she asked you to have sex again before leaving for soccer practice?
