When I think of Olympic athletes, I assume that after participating in their sport they are either eating, sleeping, or spending time with loved ones. According to The Times, though, they are actually getting busy! That's right, they are having sex either with each other or their spectators! Matthew Syed, a former english table tennis player explained it best: "I played my first Games in Barcelona in 1992 and got laid more often in those two and a half weeks than in the rest of my life up to that point . . . Barcelona was, for many of us Olympic virgins, as much about sex as it was about sport."
If you think about it, it actually makes perfect sense. They all have hot bodies, they have adrenaline pumping through their veins, and they are thrown together in the Olympic village so many of them take on the mindset of what happens at the Olympics, stays at the Olympics! In the 1988 Games in Seoul, there were so many used condoms found on the roofs of the British team's residences that the British Olympic Association banned outdoor sex. Since people didn't obey, organizers in Beijing thought it would be more effective to simply pass out thousands of free condoms to the athletes.
Of course, winning an Olympic medal comes with a sense of power and sex appeal, but I would have never guessed these athletes were getting as busy as they are! Are you surprised by this as much as I am?
