Sexy Olympians All Set to Have a Lot of Sexy Sex in Sexy Olympic Village

By / 07.13.12

Here are four things to know about the place with the motto “What happens in the village, stays in the village.” (Motto courtesy of 1992 Olympian and “Figure it Out” host Summer Sanders.)

1. It's like the first day of college, complete with a popular dining hall where athletes first meet for hookups.

The games begin as soon as teams move in a week or so before opening ceremonies. “It's like the first day of college,” says water polo captain Tony Azevedo, a veteran of Beijing, Athens and Sydney who is returning to London. “You're nervous, super excited. Everyone's meeting people and trying to hook up with someone.”

Which is perfectly understandable, if not to be expected. 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. Pre-competition testosterone is running high. Many Olympians are in tapering mode, full of excess energy because they're maintaining a training diet of up to 9,000 calories per day while not actually training as hard. The village becomes “a pretty wild scene, the biggest melting pot you've been in,” says Eric Shanteau, an American who swam in Beijing and will be heading to London.

The dining hall is among everyone's first village stops. “When I walked in for the first time in Atlanta,” says women's soccer player Brandi Chastain, “there were loud cheers. So we look over and see two French handballers dressed only in socks, shoes, jockstraps, neckties and hats on top of a dining table, feeding one another lunch. We're like, 'Holy cow, what is this place?'”

 

2. 70-75% of the athletes are having sex with each other (and Ryan Lochte is essentially going to own London for 2 weeks)

Many Olympians, past and present, abide by what Summer Sanders, a swimmer who won two gold medals, a silver and a bronze in Barcelona, calls the second Olympic motto: “What happens in the village stays in the village.” Yet if you ask enough active and retired athletes often enough to spill their secrets, the village gates will fly open. It quickly becomes clear that, summer or winter, the games go on long after the medal ceremony. “There's a lot of sex going on,” says women's soccer goalkeeper Hope Solo, a gold medalist in 2008. How much sex? “I'd say it's 70 percent to 75 percent of Olympians,” offers world-record-holding swimmer Ryan Lochte, who will be in London for his third Games. “Hey, sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do.”

 

3. Everyone has a roommate, so there's a mad rush to get dibs on a room.

Displaced roommates become commonplace, with the standard sock-on-doorknob serving as the signal for “please go away.” Before long, [soccer player Julie] Foudy says, “it turns into a frat party with a very nice gene pool.” And heaps of stamina. “Athletes are extremists,” Solo says. “When they're training, it's laser focus. When they go out for a drink, it's 20 drinks. With a once-in-a-lifetime experience, you want to build memories, whether it's sexual, partying or on the field. I've seen people having sex right out in the open. On the grass, between buildings, people are getting down and dirty.”

Those who desire a little privacy can borrow a hotel room from their agents or visiting friends. “You can get pretty much whatever you want if you flash your medal,” says one American female. “That usually does the trick.

 

4. Incredibly, the fun can continue on the plane ride home. 

And then it's over — for most Olympians, anyway. For a few and the most committed, the games continue — all the way home. On a United Airlines flight from Sydney to Los Angeles in 2000, nearly 100 Olympians were among the passengers, causing the flight attendants to begin the flight with a warning: “Ladies and gentlemen, anybody who wishes to sleep, trade seats with someone in the front of the plane. Everybody else to the back with the Olympians.” After that, the story gets fuzzy.

“Everybody partnered up fairly rapidly, and when they'd bring a drink cart through, we'd send it back dry,” says [American target shooter Josh] Lakatos, who met a girl and “comfortably occupied row 50-something for roughly half an hour.” [American javelin thrower Breaux] Greer ended up in the bathroom with a famous Olympian he will not name. “We're going at it, and then — boing. I accidentally turn on the assistance light.” Happily for them, once Greer assured the flight attendant of their Olympic credentials, they were able to return to their business. “And we stayed in there a long time.”
