Vancouver's pristine Olympic Village puts thousands of hot bodies together, with athletes sharing suites, gyms and cafeterias. After the Games are over and the medals have been won, though, these athletes take part in a whole new set of games ... in the bedroom.
As much as the Olympics are about sports, they're also about sex. The Times Online reports,†"Thousands of female athletes [are] strutting and jogging around the Village clad in Lycra and exposing shiny, toned, rippling flesh. Women from all over the world, muscular, virile, athletic and oozing estrogen."†
The Olympic Village in Whistler is housing skiers, bobsledders, lugers, skeleton racers, biathaletes, ski jumpers -- and more. "It's it's own society with its own culture and rules -- and comforts," Australian luger Hannah Campbell-Pegg told the Burlington Union.
One athlete who competed in Beijing said,†"It is unbelievable in there; everyone is totally crazy once they are out of their competitions. God knows what it is going to be like this weekend. It is like a world within a world."†
Here's a famous story from the Seoul Olympics in 1988: Apparently, there were so many used condoms on the roof-terrace of the British team's apartment block that the Olympic Committee had to ban outdoor sex! (The Committee had handed out thousands of free condoms to athletes, so maybe they were asking for it.)†
Why is the Olympic Village such a sex town?†For one thing, reports the Times, most athletes have an extra dose of testosterone†--†the hormone responsible for competitiveness and aggression. For another thing, the athletes are thousands of miles away from home, so once they finish competing, they're partying. And finally: Olympic athletes have an unnatural amount of self-discipline. Can you imagine not being able to eat for a month -- and then being presented with a delicious buffet?
Moms, if you have kids visiting the Olympics this year, don't worry: They won't be allowed anywhere near the Olympic Village without athlete credentials.†
