A couple of days ago, David Luiz revealed that he'd been re-baptized and that he planned to abstain from sex with his current partner until they were married. Fans and media took this to mean that David Luiz has never had sex for religious reasons, but he made a point of letting everyone know that he's totally a registered sex-haver. This has been another edition of people needing to know way too much about footballers' sex lives.
