Best Answer

Because the men competed in the nude,, married women due to the jealousy of the ruling males as well as their concern that their wives would be sexually aroused by the sight of the naked men, were barred from the Ancient Olympic Games. However, young unmarried women were.invited and encouraged to attend the games in anticipation seeing the naked men would get them aroused and would prompt these young women to pursue marriage.
