And it wasn't just avoiding bedroom rodeo before games, the former Juve star also expects players to lie back and have their partners do all the work.
"I explain to the players how they should have sex,” Conte said.
“In the periods of competition, the intercourse should not last long with as little effort as possible and they should be on the bottom."
He also advises giving the one-night stands a miss.
"And then I suggest you do it preferably with your wife so you are not forced to make an exceptional performance!"
Clearly it's working: Inter are sitting just one point behind last season's champion Juventus. In the 2018/19 Inter finished 4th, 21 points off first place.
