If you think about it, it’s no surprise that the Olympics probably has more sex than Woodstock and the Hustler mansion put together.
“Olympians are young, supremely healthy people who’ve been training with the intensity of combat troops for years. Suddenly they’re released into a cocoon where prying reporters and overprotective parents aren’t allowed.”
They’ve been training on a diet of 9,000 calories per day and as soon as the games begin, the training stops. Competitors’ energies are running high. Then there’s the rush of pre-game excitement.
So, you’ve got a collection of bodies in beautiful, peak physic that finally can let go and enjoy the fruits of the sports labors, all the while having excess energy and being surrounded by adoring fans. It’s no surprise that there’s a fuck-ton of sex going on.
