12 Quotes About Sex In The Olympic Village

Olympic athletes are known for their insane athletic abilities and incredibly active lifestyles. So, it's really no surprise that many of them are also ~sexually~ active. But what is sex really like in the Olympic Village? Some say it's like Vegas and others relate it to the first day of college. And with a record-breaking 450,000 condoms being distributed at the upcoming Olympic Games in Rio, it's pretty obvious that Olympic athletes are getting it on. Seriously, that's 42 condoms per athlete. Of course, some coaches usually enforce curfews upon the athletes and the Olympic Association has even placed restrictions on the Olympic Village, like when outdoor sex was banned during the 1988 Olympics in Seoul due to a crazy amount of condoms being found on the rooftops of the Olympic Village buildings. But, we all know rules are made to be broken. And, who doesn't love a good sex story?

Unfortunately, the rest of us aren't invited to this wondrous sextopia, but, luckily, some of the people who have lived in the Olympic Village have opened up about all the sexy things that go on there.
