Reviews

"There is an excellent balance between information that is common throughout the Internet regarding sex before athletic competition that feeds the myth and the facts clarified through the analysis of specific scientific papers on the subject.”– Darren Drumsta, MA, EPC, Men’s Assistant Coach, The College of St. Scholastica

“As you read, you will be encouraged to expand your thinking it embrace scientific research to clarify whether an idea is myth or fact.” – Jon Nelson, Ph.D, PT, Professor, Department of Physical Therapy, The College of St. Scholastica

“Regarding sexual activity, anecdotal information from athletes has virtually replaced the scientific method regarding human performance, on the field or in the bedroom, for most coaches. In his book, Dr. Boone leads the reader in a precise step by step process in how to analyze the literature in this rarely investigated, politically sensitive field. . . . This book is the definitive text on athletics and human sexuality . . .” – Dr. Green T. Waggener, Associate Professor, Department of Exercise Kinesiology and Physical Education, Valdosta State University
