(ANI): Matthew McConaughey has been banned from sex for six weeks -
while his Brazilian girlfriend Camila Alves recovers after the
birth of their daughter Vida.
According to Brazilian tradition, Alves must give her body 40
days to recover after the birth - and that means no exercise, and
especially no sex.
"Where I come from, we believe in something we call a 40-day
break after the baby. You have to let your body do its own thing.
You give it time to recover and let everything settle down. In a
way, it is nice," Contactmusic quoted Alves as telling
“There is not so much pressure. You kind of respect all the hard
work your body has just done and give it a break. For these 40 days
you really take it easy. By that I mean no sex, light, healthy
food, no trips to the gym. Then, after 40 days, you are good to
go," she added.
