Recently, With Leather has put a spotlight on some of the hottest Olympians in Beijing, so it should come as no surprise that once the athletes finish competing in their events, they get down to business. The business of humping, that is. That's why the IOC has trucked in 100,000 condoms to the athletes' village.
The UNAIDS, the Beijing organising committee BOCOG and International Olympics Committee are providing 100,000 condoms as part of a campaign on HIV prevention and anti-discrimination.
At the Sydney Games in 2000 athletes quickly exhausted a supply of 70,000 and another 20,000 had to be brought in.
"There are many young, strong, single people in the athletes' village and, like everywhere, some will fall in love or other things so we need to make condoms available," Ole Hansen, spokesman for UNAIDS China, told Reuters.
Some quick math: about 10,000 athletes at the games, divided by two makes 5,000 couples for sex… over the course of three weeks (let's call it twenty days)… Basically, it's almost enough for every athlete to have sex every day. And that's just the athletes having safe sex. (Looking at you, men's basketball team.)
