That’s right: three times as many.
From Fox News:
About 450,000 condoms will be distributed during the Rio de Janeiro Olympics, three times more than for the London Games four years ago, the International Olympic Committee says. The IOC says the condoms would encourage 10,500 athletes and staff to practice safe sex.
It’s not clear if the increase is related to Brazil’s outbreak of the Zika virus. The Associated Press asked the question of the IOC in an email on Friday but did not receive an immediate response.
Part of the reason for the increase is the introduction of 100,000 female condoms, which haven’t been featured in the games before. Not sure what to make of this, as female condoms scare me and I do not understand them. There will also be packets of personal lubricant provided to the athletes. Does blood doping have a way of drying one’s snatch? I’ve come up with more questions than answers so far. As for the concerns about the Zika virus, you can never be too careful when it comes to potentially deadly illnesses. It’s a lot worse than your typical herpes or clap.
Doing some quick math, 450,000 condoms split between 10,500 people amounts to about 43 condoms per person. That’s about three per night. The Olympic Village sounds like quite the party. I’ve got half a mind to go over to Rio myself and gank a few of those. Nobody will even notice the six condoms that I take, and I’ll be set for life..
