What's the Impact of Sex on Athletic Performance?

The rampant Tinder use of athletes in the notoriously lustful Olympic Village raises the question: Just what kind of impact does all this coitus have on the competitors?

Before you get to the video that intelligently answers that question, some math. TMZ reported that officials doled out 100,000 rubbers to the 7,650 athletes. Going off of Ryan Lochte's estimation (a dubious proposition for any math problem) that 70-75% of athletes are getting busy in Olympic village, that's about 18 romps per competitor on average. That assumes all condoms get unsheathed (popular souvenir?) and also that all the athletes are using protection. In sum, the Olympic Village must be a virtual orgy, making this video on whether sex affects athletic performance quite relevant.
