45,000 Condoms Reveal A Side To The Olympics You Don’t See On TV.
There are 11,552 athletes competing at the Rio Olympics this year: That's 11,552 young, strong, physically remarkable human beings, competing against each other to win the most prestigious athletic award in the world.
All things considered, it makes sense that when the games are over and the stadium lights go out, the Olympic Village gets, as the kids say, turnt. There's no other way to say it, so close your eyes if you're the modest sort: Olympic athletes are having sex with each other, and lots of it. In fact, they've been doing so since the Olympics were around, and judging by the amount of condoms handed out in Rio, their sex drives are showing no sign of slowing down.
Try not to be too horrified: These are consenting adults, getting down and dirty with other consenting adults. They're at their physical prime, and everyone around them looks as good as they do. Can you blame them? Still, the sheer amount of condoms being tossed around at this year's Olympics is pretty shocking!
There are a lot of reasons that the Rio Olympics are entertaining.
Sure, the sports and the superhuman athletes are definitely worth watching. But there's one lesser-known fact about the games that's also pretty great.

So what's that fact: Well, it's all about how much sex the Olympians are having.
And furthermore, just how many condoms they're using.
A team of people has handed out about 450,000 condoms at the Olympic Village in Rio.
That's right: Nearly half a million condoms have been distributed -- thats's 42 condoms per athlete, courtesy of the Brazilian government.
In a lot of ways, it makes sense that the Olympics would turn into a superhuman orgy.
Think about it: Most of the athletes are in their twenties and thirties, all of them are at their peak athletic prime, and in between competitions, they have a lot of downtime.
The whole point of handing out the condoms is to ensure that the athletes are safe.
“This is considered sufficient to encourage athletes to practice safe sex while in Brazil for the Olympic Games,” the International Olympic Committee (IOC) told the Folha de São Paulo newspaper.
