Olympic Style Sex

While the pundits and commentators provide endless analysis of most of the sports at the Olympics, the most popular sport among the athletes rarely receives any attention. I am of course talking about sex.

This year, organizers have supplied Olympic athletes with over 100,000 condoms. While this may seem like a lot, the 70 000 condoms supplied at the Sydney Olympics ran out so quickly that more had to be ordered. As more athletes attend the games, the number of condoms necessary seems to be increasing. Olympic organizers have supplied condoms since the Barcelona games in 1992 in an effort to raise AIDs awareness.

There are 11,028 athletes participating in the 2008 Olympics in Beijing. Many of these athletes are disqualified quickly, which gives them plenty of time for you know what. The condoms these athletes have been supplied with range in style. Some of them even have the Olympic mascots printed on them. So as not to offend, the condoms are not in the individual athlete's room. Instead, athletes have to pick them up at the various athletic centres in the Olympic Village.
