In brief: Probably not

Depends on what you are training for. If you are talking about training for sports, i believe this is a debunked myth.
Intercourse and "normal" sexual activity should have no significant impact on your ability to train or get in conditioning. Common sense would dictate your level of performance and your level of sexual stamina.

Not aware of any correlation... Enjoy :).
