Inevitably, some athletes get beyond flirting. That’s why the Vancouver organizers have laid in a stock of 100,000 condoms, which works out to 14 for each of the 7,000 athletes, coaches, trainers and officials housed in the Games’ two villages. (Apparently, skiing, skating and sliding aren’t the only activities at which Olympians excel.)
100,000??? Really? 14 per person - one per person for every day of the Olympics. I know they're in good shape, but seriously - who has that kind of stamina?

And assuming they are getting it on with each other and not the spectators (although surely some are) in many cases...we're talking 28 per couple, right? WOWZA!

That's one way to console yourself/celebrate.

They like their safe sex Vancouver, eh?

Did you see the logo on the website? They actually were made special for the Olympic village with that lovely suggestive curling stone on it!

That's hilarious. Being that I'm a single mom....Oh, boy, I should probably keep my mouth shut
