Bizarre sports injuries always make for an easy story (see here or here), so it makes sense that if your team is hosting the World Cup, you'd want to limit the chances for ridicule.

That's (hopefully) the thinking behind Brazil's soccer team manager Luiz Felipe Scolari, who recently answered a reporter's question about what his team's policy on sex would be during the World Cup:

"The players can have normal sex during the World Cup. Usually normal sex is done in balanced way, but there are certain forms, certain ways and others who do acrobatics. And that, no. We will put limits and survey the players." [FOX Soccer Blog]

So, normal sex is fine. Acrobatic sex is not. And as for that survey? Those player comments should be interesting.
