Can this really even be enforced? Some Countries that have teams playing in the World Cup in Brazil right now are enacting a NO SEX policy at the games. Does that even make sense? Well to some coaches and players it actually does. Some countries are much more aggressive about it than others but it goes to show you there is still that myth in sports that if a player has sex before a game it may take away from his performance on the field. There are a few teams though, including team USA, that are letting players do as they please. Hit the jump & check the gallery.


“There will be no sex in Brazil.”

These are the words of Bosnia-Herzegovina manager Safet Susic, whose team is one of several international sides instituting sex-related rules for its players during the 2014 World Cup.

“I am not interested what the other coaches do,” the Daily Star reports Susic as saying in April. “This is not a holiday trip, we are there to play football at the World Cup.” Russia, Chile and Mexico are among the other teams not letting their players have any adult fun during the games.

The United States, Switzerland, Italy and England are among several other nations with a free, no-strings-attached policy toward sex. Their players may do as they please. Several nations, however, are allowing sex with stipulations.

David Yanofsky of Quartz reports that Spain, Germany, France, Brazil, Costa Rica and Nigeria are among the nations that have developed rules for their athletes to abide by in the bedroom.

For Spain and Germany, sexual relations are allowed except for the night before a match—implying the old adage that sexual activity prior to competition can hurt performance on the field. It didn’t seem to help Spain much. Costa Rica’s rules, on the other hand, place sex on a pedestal by only allowing players to resume relations in the second round—a carrot on a stick, of sorts.

Things get more, well, specific when you get into Brazil’s rules, which allow sex so long as it isn’t “acrobatic.” Similarly, France’s policy gives players freedom to do as they please, but advises against all-night affairs. Nigeria specifies that players can lay with their wives, but not girlfriends.

Have you ever seen so many rules related to sex? And how do teams actually enforce that rule? At least we know which countries have the happier players at the moment.
