All of the world’s best athletes are in Rio for the Olympics, and they’re doing exactly what we’d expect: competing, working out, and having sex.
After all, what do you expect when some of the most fit, and fine individuals in the world get together? Apparently since the Rio Olympics began Tinder has had a 129% increase in matches, within the Olympic village. That’s a lot of swiping.
This isn’t the first instance of Olympians going sex crazy. At the 2008 Olympics in Bejing China, over 100 000 condoms were distributed to the athletes. That is a whole lot of sex. Additionally at the last Olympic games in London in 2012, the dating app Grindr crashed due to the number of people using it. Even more condoms have been given out this year in preparation for the hook ups.
In fact Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte was interviewed before the London Olympics stating “My last Olympics, I had a girlfriend—big mistake. Now I’m single, so London should be really good.” Apparently the Olympics are the best place to have a hook up. Who knew?
It’s not only the Olympians who are getting in on the Olympic Tinder. Tinder has a ‘passport’ feature, which allows users to change their location, in order to swipe from any location in the world. And while some of us merely drool over the Olympic swimmers we see on TV, others have taken matters into their own hands, using the passport feature to try and match with their favourite Olympians. (Why didn’t we think of that?) Usage for the passport feature has also skyrocketed, especially for those placing themselves in Rio.
We think it only makes sense that when some of the world’s most beautiful and physically active people get together they want to be a little… physical. When in Rio..
