Olympic Village Sex: 100,000 Condoms Made Available To Sochi Athletes
The Olympic Games, where the world’s top athletes compete against one another for medals and honor, also serves as a hook-up atmosphere for the physically elite group of young adults.
100,000 Condoms Available For Sochi Athletes
For Sochi 2014, the International Olympic Committee ordered 100,000 condoms for the Olympic Village. Since there are roughly 2,800 athletes at the Games, that computes to 35 condoms per athlete for the 16 days of the global athletic event.
A rep for the International Olympic Committee says it’s simply because they take sexual health seriously as an organization. “The distribution of condoms… is part of the IOC’s involvement in HIV and AIDS prevention,” the IOC rep told TMZ.
In 2012, ESPN’s Sam Alipour wrote an exposé on the sexual activity of the Olympians in the insulated world of the Olympic Village. "There's a lot of sex going on," women's soccer goalkeeper Hope Solo admitted. Swimmer Ryan Lochte said, "I'd say it's 70 percent to 75 percent of Olympians [having sex]."
Dr. Judy Kurianski thinks that the sex in the Olympic Village makes perfect sense. "It's like making the ingredients of a huge stew — a stew of sexual ingredients," Kurianski told ABC News. "There is stress, which causes tension, and anxiety and energy, and a massive outpouring of chemicals in the body – adrenaline and endorphins. It's a powerful concoction of chemicals."
At Sochi 2014, U.S. slopestyle skier Joss Christensen hasn’t seen much of the action. "I haven't seen too much around the USA building," Christensen told Huffington Post, claiming that he’s been focusing on his events up ahead, looking to capture a gold. He did admit, however, that he could be looking to get involved in the hook up culture around him. "There are definitely some honeys out there,” he said. “The cafeteria is definitely where you're gonna be spittin' some game."
