An Olympic Feat: Keeping Up With Condom Demand At The Village
Several years ago I was surfing about for information on what The Olympic Village looks like, what it is like to live there, etc. What I discovered was a facet of hosting the games that I had never considered: keeping the athletes and their accompanying staff in a bottomless supply of condoms! Silly me, it had never occurred to me that all of these athletes plan on celebrating, win or lose, and we all know how it goes when people travel. Can you imagine the partying that goes on? Talk about international goodwill! That should give you something to think about while you’re doodling during your afternoon conference call, or taking the kids out shopping for backpacks. Good luck with both, by the way.
So what is China up to? Not only are they dishing out a 100,000+ free condoms, area manufacturers are having a great time developing new advertising campaigns. More info and photos after the jump!
Jissbon (yes… Jissbon) is providing that condoms (they’re not the one with the cute ad above, though), and trilingual literature on HIV prevention accompanies the goodies. 100,000. That’s a lot of lovin’! Some Chinese have voiced their concerns online since athletes do not typically bring their spouses to the games, and sex is rumored to reduce athletic prowess. The stamina worry is crap, by the way, and well addressed in The Technology of Orgasm. Back to the 100,000 thing. In Athens they gave out even more (130,000) and in Sydney they greeted each athlete with 51 condoms but then had to ship in 20,000 more. Keep in mind that there are “only” 16,000 athletes in competing in Beijing. Wow… these people really are in peak condition! Some folks have noted the place is like an “adult Disney world” and the athletes really need the supplies.
