Well, this might give you a clue: We have gotten word that the London Olympic village has stocked a record number of condom for the London summer spectacle, a total of 150,000—with 10,500 athletes at the games, it works out to 15 per competitor.
There were just 100,000 condoms stocked in Beijing, meaning the London Olympic committee felt a need to up the total by 50 percent.
The athletes have suggested that there is much sexual activity in the Olympic village—all those competitive juices and very pretty people, all squeezed together in a cozy little village, leading to a Las Vegas-like feeling of whatever happens in the Olympic village…
U.S. women’s soccer goalkeeper Hope Solo told the Daily Mirror: “There’s a lot of sex going on at the London Olympics. I’ve seen people having sex out in the open, getting down and dirty on grass between buildings.”
She added: “I may have snuck a celebrity into my Beijing room without anybody knowing and snuck him back out. But that’s my Olympic secret.”
“I was feeling super-guilty for cheating on my boyfriend,” she told the New York Post. “And a fellow athlete said, “Why? Everyone hooked up last night.’”‘
A tell-all expose published earlier this year echoed the anonymous athlete’s experiences. That book, the authors of which also remain unknown, lifted the lid on the secrets of the Olympic Village.
“Like thoroughbred horses which haven’t had a run for a while, they get frisky.”The athletes stay in a tight-knit community where what happens in the Village stays in the Village, the book claims.
It is a promise that is easily kept, given the high-security, walled off community they spend the duration of the Games living in, protected from prying eyes.
Competitors sexual appetites seem to have soared since Seoul 1988, when just 8,500 condoms were made available.
For Barcelona in 1992, that number leapt up to 50,000. In the 2000 Sydney Olympics, organizers had to order 20,000 more after the initial allocation of 70,000 ran out.
However, the bed hopping may be slightly less frenetic with the London Games, since this year athletes’ partners will also be allowed into the Olympic Village for the first time.
