The 35th sports of the Olympics
Sex has become the unofficial sport of the Beijing 2008 Olympics after 100,000 condoms were handed out to athletes.
The condoms are being given away in the Olympic Village. There are 10,500 athletes so they could have nine condoms each - if having sex with other competitors this would mean they are able to have it away 18 times during the competition - lets hope they still get time to compete.
Free condoms have been offered to athletes in the games since Barcelona in 1992
Here are some stats from Sydney and Greece
As the official supplier of condoms and lubricants, we hope the donation will help athletes improve their achievements between the sheets," says one Durex mouthpiece.
If you ask the athletes and look at the history (previous Games have run short long before the Closing Ceremony), this supply probably won't be enough. In fact, we find the math just plain confusing. The reports from Sydney were that each athlete got 51 cloaks upon arrival at the village, which was far from enough. But maybe Durex expects Greece to be less, umm, exciting -- 130K works out to only 12 condoms per competitor.
(We think someone did some bad division in one newspaper article about Sydney, and that number just appeared everywhere, unchecked. At the start of the Games, there was talk of a supply of 50,000 condoms, which works out to about five per athlete.)
In any case ...
"There's a lot of sex going on," javelin thrower Breaux Greer told Men's Journal. "You get a lot of people who are in shape and, you know, testosterone's up and everybody's attracted to everybody."
Other fun nuggets, courtesy of Men's Journal, which conducted a survey of sorts: Swimmers do it longer; the French do it most often (but only with compatriots).
In Sydney, the Cubans ... well, they ran through their ration faster than any other nation.
"I don't know what they're doing with those things," said one official. "Maybe they're making water balloons. They're lovely, lovely people. They're very friendly."
So let them have fun after all they deserve it after months maybe years of scarifice and hard work…
After all any guy wouldn’t mind to hook up with a beach volleyball, field hokey, volleyball, diving, swimming, soccer athlete from Brazil Australia, US, Sweden Argentina.
Or for the girls they wouldn’t mind hooking up with a swimmer beach volleyball soccer athlete.
Let the fun begins
