Why Olympic Sex Is Motivated by More Than Hot Bodies

swimmer Ryan Lochte telling ESPN thatِ 70 toِ 75 percent ofِ Olympians haveِ sex duringِ the Games, toِ theِ controversy thatِ ensued whenِ anِ Australian brand ofِ condoms wasِ distributed alongِ with thoseِ ofِ official sponsor Durex, sex wasِ certainlyِ atِ the forefront ofِ the London Olympic Games.
People areِ more likelyِ to haveِ sex whenِ they’reِ outِ ofِ town, andِ are alsoِ more sexually attracted toِ othersِ who areِ working towardِ theِ sameِ goals, saidِ Dr.
Sadock, a clinical professor ofِ psychiatry atِ New York University’s Langone Medical Center.

Working on a common goal often brings people together, even sexually, Sadock said.

How manyِ affairs goِ on whenِ people areِ working onِ films.
sheِ asked.
A movie set canِ have anِ atmosphere similar toِ thatِ ofِ the Olympic Village — a lot ofِ very attractive people areِ living inِ slightly isolated quarters, andِ allِ are working towardِ theِ sameِ objective, Sadock said.

However, this intense environment may not last beyond the project, she said.

Even thoseِ ofِ us whoِ haveِ neither movie-star looksِ nor Olympian athleticism mayِ find ourselvesِ inِ similar environments, sheِ said.
A business orِ academic conference, orِ evenِ a situation suchِ asِ taking school entrance exams orِ graduation exams canِ provide a similar backdrop forِ getting busy.
You’ve neverِ seen eachِ other before, andِ you’re allِ going throughِ theِ sameِ thing, Sadock said.
