If you had imagined that the athlete’s village at the Olympic Games was some kind of sordid sex swamp, you’re pretty much on the money.
It’s well known that athletes are issued a stack of frangers to prepare them for their experience, and American snowboarder Jamie Anderson said that Tinder use at the Sochi Winter Olympics was like a next-level hot person Tinder that you will never be privy to:
Tinder in the Olympic Village is next level. It’s all athletes! In the mountain village it’s all athletes. It’s hilarious. There are some cuties on there.
Some cuties, I’m sure. Well, it looks like the Rio Olympics next month are set to be the horniest yet: 350,000 condoms, 100,000 female condoms and 175,000 packets of lubricant are being shipped into the village – more than three times the haul of the London Olympics, which were by any normal metric pretty horny. It’s literally 42 condoms per athlete.
“It is an absolutely huge allocation of condoms,” said Olympic rower Zac Purchase to The Guardian. “But it is all so far from the truth of what it’s like to be in there. It’s not some sexualised cauldron of activity. We’re talking about athletes who are focused on producing the best performance of their lives.”
Sure mate. The fact that he used a phrase as specific as ‘sex cauldron’ implies to me that it is absolutely a cauldron of sex.
Look, there are legit reasons why there are so many. Female condoms are being supplied for the first time because of fears about the Zika virus, which can be sexually transmitted. This does not by any means detract from the suggestion that the Games will be astoundingly – possibly dangerously – horny.
If you’re wondering how the Sydney Olympics in 2000 stacked up: we brought in 70,000 frangers, but were forced to ship in 20,000 more when they were all used up. Go you good things.
