This year’s Olympians are ready for action.
This year’s games will have more free condoms than ever before, the South China Morning Post reports.
Officials will hand out a total of 110,000 condoms to this year’s athletes. That’s a 10,000-rubber increase from the 2014 Winter Olympics.
Though Pyeongchang, South Korea’s randy record doesn’t beat out the Summer Olympics’ in sheer volume — 450,000 condoms were handed out at the 2016 Rio games — it does win gold for its high condom-to-athlete ratio: The math averages out to a whopping 37.6 condoms per athlete for the 16-day stay.
“Baskets with condoms will be placed at both men’s and women’s toilets at athletes’ villages in Pyeongchang and Gangneung, the main press center, the media village as well as medical centers,” reports the paper.
Still, it may be difficult to top the ’16 Rio de Janeiro Games, at which a Brazilian synchronized diving team split up after one athlete shacked up with a canoeist and “sexiled” her teammate the night before their event.
Even the Games’ spokesman, Chung Geun-sik, seemed skeptical. He tells the paper, “We don’t expect the athletes to use them all.”
But factor in the cold weather — all the better for cuddling! — and the not-so-vague threat of nuclear war, and getting it on seems inevitable — patriotic, even.
Let the games begin!
