Ronda Rousey was just on Showtime’s Jim Rome show and while she talked about a bunch of interesting topics like signing with the UFC and the public’s acceptance or lack thereof for WMMA, we’re going to focus on her comments about sex. Because SEX!
Some boxers say they abstain from any sex for six weeks leading up to a contest, and the mythology has been studied by different doctors with some supporting the claim and other shooting it down as not backed up by biological fact.
For her part, Rousey goes in the opposite direction because she’s a woman.
“For girls, it raises your testosterone, so I try to have as much sex as possible before I fight, actually. Not with like everybody. I don’t put out like a Craigslist ad or anything, but if I got a steady I’m going to be like ‘yo, fight time’s coming up,’” Rousey said with a laugh.
Rousey also has some pretty solid ideas when it comes to surviving a hypothetical zombie apocalypse:
“(Expletive) houseboats. Houseboats,” Rousey said when asked where she would go.
“It depends on the kinds of zombies you’re dealing with, if you have slow, all the time slow daytime zombies or you could have sprinting fast nighttime zombies, like in 28 Days Later, so it would kind of really depend. I would lean more towards houseboats if it was sprinting nighttime zombies cause then you could just go out at night and just come back and chill during the daytime, just live on a boat. It would be cool.”
Since when do zombies only come out at night. I think Ronda is getting her zombie and vampire mythologies screwed up. Houseboats suffer from the same downfall as most other secure locations: you gotta leave the houseboat whenever you need supplies. It beats living on land and potentially getting ambushed at any moment by a giant crowd of zombies though. Unless zombies float, in which case you’re still fucked.
