2008_08_bvol.jpgThere's an amusing article in the Times of London about libidos unleashed after Olympians compete in their events. Former Olympian Matthew Syed remembers, "In 1988 that there were so many used condoms on the roof terrace of the British team's residential block the night after the swimming concluded that the British Olympic Association sent out an edict banning outdoor sex... It is a common sight to see recently knocked-out athletes gorging on Magnums and McDonald's, swilling alcohol and, of course, shagging like crazy." Syed points out how 2008 organizers have more of a "If you can't stop 'em, at least make it safe" philosophy by handing out 100,000 condoms to the 10,500 Olympians in Beijing. There is no count on how many were used, but Syed heard from one competitor, “The swimmers finished earlier in the week and it was like there was an eruption.” [Via Page Six]
