Olympic village root-fest about to get underway

Another Winter Olympics is about to get underway, this time in Vancouver,  and that means loads of testosterone-fuelled young people, in peak physical condition, thrown together in a small village, and they will be up for it!

“What happens at Olympic Village stays at Olympic village” is the credo of Olympic rooters. Armed with their party packs of condoms and lube from Games’ suppliers, the athletes will be trying to score more than just medals.

Organisers will be handing out 100,000 condoms but if past games are anything to go by, that won’t be nearly enough. During the Salt Lake City Winter Olympics in 2002, nearly 200,000 condoms were used. By all accounts, the French were the biggest shaggers but also the most xenophobic, with most rooting taking place in-team.

Here’s an excerpt from a more detailed look at sex in the Olympic village from a couple of years ago but still worth a read:

This sex fest was not limited to Barcelona: the same thing happened in Sydney in 2000, my second Olympics as an athlete, and is happening right here in Beijing, where this time I’m a commentator. I spoke to an Aussie table tennis player this week to check out the village vibe and he launched into the breathless patter common to any Olympic debutant: “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.” A British runner (anonymous again: athletes are not supposed to talk to journalists unaccompanied by a PR type, least of all about sex) said: “The swimmers finished earlier in the week and it was like there was an eruption.”

Have a look at this interview with Canadian snowboarder Crispin Lipscomb about sex at the upcoming Olympics. Note the shameless interviewing style – attack-dog relentlessness in the dig for juicy stuff:

Just one question: Do you think the curling competitors ever get laid? After all, how sexy is sweeping ice, really?
