The Olympic Games has always been a gathering of the greatest athletes in the world, and the fittest bodies in the world.
The 2016 edition being held in Rio, one of the sexiest cities in the world. The days and the nights and the (puts on sunglasses) humans are hot. No wonder Olympians get it on.
Right now, in Rio, Tinder is very much in use. In 2012, rumors spread that Grindr crashed when the Olympic teams arrived in London. That same year, Hope SoloÂ told ESPNÂ she saw athletes having sex out in the open in the Olympic village. Which is good, because this year,Â the indoor digsÂ don't look too inviting. And this year, in Rio, each athlete was given a recordÂ 42 condomsÂ to last them a whole two weeks, according to Esquire.Â
If anything, having sex is a boon to the medal count.
According toÂ Quartz, a recent paperÂ publishedÂ before the Rio de Janeiro games compared the nine best studies conducted in the last 50 years on the effect of sex on athletic performance and found that sex doesÂ notÂ negatively impact an athlete's game. Athletes do not tire faster or compete sluggishly, and their hormone levels are not negatively impacted. Plus, asÂ QuartzÂ points out, working out regularly makes sex more enjoyable, improving blood flow and stimulating nerves.
So, for those down there in Rio winning medals for their country, feel free to use every single one of those 42 condoms. Go team.
