RICKSON GRACIE says it in "CHOKE"
ERIK PAULSON said it in a seminar, citing that it makes you weak in the knees, due to some sort of physiological response linked to the kidneys...and of course mentioned the psychological points of how not getting any can maximize aggressiveness.
Some other people said it...I think I heard Adjarn say it...but I'm not too sure.
I think it has more of a link to psychological things, and having somebody, male or female, around, in a relationship, can be taxing and make training difficult. See Mark Kerr and his girl in "Smashing Machine".

I really was wondering about this too. I had thought that it would most likely be more psychological than anything else. If there if any physiological response that can be proven I would like to know. I was really bummed when our teacher said in all seriousness "no sex". I really need to know the answer to this.
24 hours at least is what ive always heard although Mr. Mike does make some points about the aggro levels going up when you abstain for extended periods! unless you are a 2 minute wonder, sex burns up quite a bit of energy, I mean you wouldnt want to run a marathon just before a fight right? and lets not forget it gives you something to look foreward to after the fight win or lose. motivation is the key!
Yup, speed is so right. But a good rule of thumb would be 24hrs, you dont want to have an all nighter with some big time hottie and then climb into the ring. Dont care who you are, you want be 100% but as far as going a week or some crap it want help you any more than waiting 24hrs.
[QUOTE=Rebar Tao]I read something about tying string around the guy's joint and balls while he slept so he wouldn't have wet dreams.
what are you talking about. dont do that. really, really dont tie a string around yourself while you sleep. you ever seen what happens to fingers if you restrict the circulation for a few mins? lets NOT do that there for an entire night, or its no sex for you ever. youl lwake up less of a man than you were before you went to sleep
