'I Relied On The Research Of Doctors' - Three-Time Olympic Gold Medallist Claims Sex Gives Her 'Explosive Power'

Three-time Olympic champion Alla Shishkina has insisted that sex can provide "explosive power" after she "relied on the research of doctors."

The 32-year-old Russian secured a third Olympic gold medal after competing in her team’s synchronised swimming at Tokyo 2020 this summer.


Shishkina previously won gold medals representing her country at the 2012 Summer Olympics and 2016 Summer Olympics.

However, the Olympian has now admitted that she "consulted" with the team doctor about the impact sex could have on her performance.

Shishkina told Russian newspaper Sport Express: "I relied on the research of doctors and consulted with Denis, our doctor.

"The scientific community says that if you need explosive power, you have to have sex.

"And if there is long, cyclical work ahead, then probably not. But there are still nuances for each organism and you need to listen to yourself first. If you feel that sex helps, then go ahead."

Shishkina claimed that having sex without orgasm before a competition can benefit those who need "muscle strength."

According to the Moscow-born athlete, competitors should "refrain from sex" if they want to keep hold of the "attitude" that testosterone can help release.

Shishkina said: "Sex without orgasm before the competition is suitable for those who need muscle strength to achieve the best results.

"Testosterone is also responsible for so-called 'sports anger' and 'aggression.' If you feel that this attitude helps you perform better, then refrain from sex."

Shishkina also dismissed the myth that large breasts can help a woman stay afloat, but she insisted that it is "harder" to train with them.

"Contrary to the myth that breasts help keep you afloat, the opposite is true. Training with large breasts is harder," she said.

The three-time Olympic medallist suggested women with large breasts should reconsider surgery, saying the "operations are complex and expensive."

Shishkina explained: "The combination of difficulties sometimes leads to the fact that the owners of impressive forms resort to operations to reduce the mammary glands.

"Such operations are complex and expensive, and the visual result does not always meet expectations."
