Here's one of the craziest prop bets in history. According to several news sites, Antonio "The Magician" Esfandiari, the winner of The Big One for One Drop in 2012 ($18.3 million), has made a bet with millionaire businessman and poker amateur Bill Perkins that he will get $500,000 if he doesn't have sex for 1 year.
The bet followed another prop bet made the same day. That bet was that Esfandiari [...] Read more » Esfandiari Can't Have Sex For A Year?

Those stupid bets. How the hell can this be monitored? The only reason to make such a bet is if your'e not having sex even without considering the bet. With the amount of time those guys are spending on playing poker, I don't know if they have any time for sex. If he was married with more than one kid than one year is around the avarage...

How mad do U need to be ...... taking bets like this, is eventually killing off poker, as this way, with the welknown pokerplayers involved, it will be seen as gambling. I see them doing it on tv tables all the time. Taking diffrent bets for huge amounts of cash, mostly way more then the pricemoney.
A year without sex for 500K....
It was untill I was 8 years old when we got sexeducation on school..... waisted 8 whole years of my life.... ( stolen from a wellknown belgian comedian)
How will they check it , will he get a chastity belt put on for the year???????

yeah agree for 500K i would agree to yanks my crank myself. however i wonder how is this possible to monitor, will they live together for the sake of bet, or will cameras be installed spying on esfandiari's every mover (with left and right hands). either these guys were heavily drunk or they are masters of PR

If only I'd had the foresight to make this bet 4 years ago..... I'd be owed $2m by now
In this case... it's entirely a PR stunt. Bill Perkins gets to say "Look everyone! Look how much money I have!" and "Antonio Esfandiari gets to say "Look how much sex I have, the women are literally throwing themselves at me!"
Both guys have a little a fun and a boost to their "reputation" but no one actually cares about the money, or the sex.

It must be nice to throw around money on non-challengeable bets. I mean the $500,000 for no sex for a year isn't even a challenge it's just self discipline and I think for that kind of money jerking on it would work for a year. To be honest Estrafani will probably violate this since it's only a mere drop in the bucket to him.

And i agree that this is just a PR thing, where both sides got publicity for doing such idiot -but funny- "bet"

Hey IceQueen..... Pretty easy for YOU to say that... Women seem to have a heck of a lot more self control that GUYS when it comes to THAT...!!!
Unless you go to gym with Kennedy Junior... I think "The Bet" is one of Seinfeld's best episodes. "Still master of my domain...still king of my castle". The difference that the Seinfeld bet wasn't even about sex and there was no money involved, and it was a 'Last man standing' kind of a bet.
