From hot tub orgy to Grindr crashing at London 2012.. here’s a look back at sex scandals that rocked the Olympic Games 0 338

BIRDS do it, bees do it, even educated fleas do it – but no one does it quite as much as Olympic athletes do it.

The first record of the 2016 Rio Olympics was set ahead of the opening ceremony when 450,000 condoms were ordered for the athletes’ village.

There were 10,500 competitors in Rio, making that 42 condoms each — even before Australia, Britain and other nations ordered in extra allocations. The London Olympics were dubbed ‘the raunchiest Games ever’ but a mere 150,000 condoms were allocated to the village in 2012.

The condom story has been a staple of every recent Games and the Winter Olympics in Beijing are unlikely to be any different – despite sex having been banned at Tokyo 2020.

The first reports stem to Seoul 1988 when 8,500 condoms were distributed. Many were found on the roofs of the village residences leading to an official Olympic ban on outdoor sex.

In 1992 the figure went up more than 10 fold to 90,000, although Atlanta, in the US deep south, scaled it back to 15,000.

An initial 70,000 at the Sydney Olympics was not enough and extra supplies had to be brought in during the event. There were 130,000 in Athens.

While despite the sex ban, 160,000 were distributed in Tokyo last year.

“It’s a story that always gets massive media uptake,” says Olympian and Channel Seven commentator David Culbert.

“The message is, ‘If the world’s best athletes are s***ging in your zingers then it’s probably good enough for the guy at the local footy club’.”

Culbert is also a media and PR specialist with his own company — Jump Media. He seemed genuinely awed by the Australian Olympic Committee’s decision to add an extra thousand or so of their own sponsor’s condoms — claimed to give extra protection to the Zika virus – to the mountain of rubber already in the village back in Rio.

“That’s total marketing spin,” he says. “They’re talking up the protection against the Zika virus. What’s Cate Campbell doing, putting it on her head when she dives in for a swim?

“It’s going to be tough for [pole vaulter] Alana Boyd to jump in a full body condom.
“Protection from the Zika virus? Please. But I’m a little disappointed I didn’t come up with it myself as a PR person.”
Culbert believed the stories of sex at the Olympics are overplayed

“I think it’s a bit of a myth. I’m sure it exists,” he says. “I’m sure there’s the Fabio who runs around and more interested in notches on the belt than how they’re going in the Games but for most of these people it’s the ultimate moment of their sporting career.”

Therefore you’ve got 16 days of Club Med on steroids

David Culbert

Culbert said the earlier an athlete competed at the Games likely had an impact on how hard they went thereafter.

“You were slightly envious of a diver or someone on the opening morning — they’re done by lunchtime day one. Therefore you’ve got 16 days of Club Med on steroids (and I mean that in the nicest possible way). It’s a ramped-up, hyped-up Club Med if you no longer have to compete.”

While there is an attitude of ‘what happens in the village stays in the village’ for many athletes, there are many more who have been happy to share their experiences of Games gone by.

Key moments in the history of Olympic sex

Sochi 2014

The use of Tinder in the athletes village was described as ‘next level’ by US snowboarder Jamie Anderson during the Sochi games. There were 100,000 condoms made available there. Anderson said she ultimately deleted her account because it was ‘way too distracting’. It paid off: She won the slope-style gold medal.

London 2012

If Sochi was the Tinder Games, London belonged to its gay equivalent Grindr. The Mirror quoted a ‘Londoner’ as saying the app crashed as soon as athletes started arriving. “Either loads of athletes were logging on to meet fellow Olympians or were looking to bag a local.”

Some athletes, notably Americans, felt liberated enough to talk freely about sex. US footballer Hope Solo told ESPN she saw athletes having ‘sex right out in the open’.

Swimmer Ryan Lochte, a regular poster boy in Olympic sex stories, added: “My last Olympics, I had a girlfriend — big mistake. Now I’m single, so London should be really good. I’m excited.”
In 2016, Lochte signed up for Tinder.

“I heard it took off and then people were talking about it and I was like, ‘Let me try this’. So I got on it and I’ve been matching up with a bunch of gorgeous women who are smart, they have professional jobs and everything.

“I’m like, ‘Wow, this is perfect’. So I’ve been on Tinder lately.”

Vancouver 2010

ESPN reported that six athletes enjoyed an orgy in a hot tub at the village as 100,000 condoms were distributed. There were rumours that they ran out, leading to a top up.

“Indications are that Vancouver topped the podium for Winter Olympics,” said a spokesman.

“Although we recently heard that they issued 35 million condoms for Mardi Gras in Rio, so I suppose we all have a long, long way to go to reach that mark.”

Beijing 2008

Michael Phelps and Aussie Stephanie Rice sent tabloids into a frenzy when the swimmers engaged in what the New York Post described as ‘face sucking frolics’. Meanwhile, in The Times, Matthew Syed, a former table tennis Olympian, wrote there was a ‘sex fest’ in Beijing.

Solo, meanwhile, revealed to ESPN that she had sex with a celeb – but wouldn’t give the name.

Sydney 2000

It’s not like Sydney to be austere but the organisers were caught with their pants down when an initial run of 70,000 condoms was gone after a week.

US javelin thrower Breaux Greer told ESPN that he had relations with three women every day of the Olympics and enjoyed the company of another on the flight home.

But the story of Josh Lakatos takes some beating. After team management asked him to check out of the village, he stayed on surreptitiously and allowed US team-mates to hook up in the spare rooms of his villa.

“And on it went for eight days as scores of Olympians, male and female, trickled into the shooter’s house – and that’s what everyone called it, Shooters’ House – at all hours, stopping by an Oakley duffel bag overflowing with condoms procured from the village’s helpful medical clinic,” wrote ESPN.

After a while, it dawned on Lakatos: “I’m running a friggin’ brothel in the Olympic Village! I’ve never witnessed so much debauchery in my entire life.”

Lensa AI app could be used to create erotica or porn 0 45

In recent days, the Lensa app, a service that uses a neural network to create drawn portraits, has gone viral. To generate drawings, you have to upload 10 to 20 of your portrait photos to the app, from which the program will generate an avatar. But the app has proven easy to trick so that it creates soft porn.

Internet users say that if you upload topless photos to Lensa, the app disables the NSFW filter and generates nudes. 

In general, the idea of uploading your photos to a questionable app seems bad to many. The owners of the service assure that users’ photos are deleted after 24 hours, but it is impossible to check whether this is true. In addition, such services have repeatedly allowed leaks of users’ personal data.

The Lensa application is a SaaS product of Russian developers Prisma Labs. This is especially disturbing for the residents of Ukraine, where the application has also gone viral: Ukrainian journalists urge citizens not to give their personal data to Russians, because considering the work of Russian special services, no one can guarantee a sufficient level of security when using programs written by the enemy. To use Lensa, each user has to accept the rules – to agree to the training of the neural network in order for it to work more correctly. Photos go to Google Cloud Platform or Amazon Web Services cloud storage – and, according to the developers, are deleted from there in 24 hours after being processed in Lensa. 

Lensa’s creators assure that users remain anonymous. The app doesn’t specifically ask them for access to metadata such as geolocation. However, the metadata that identifies the user can be linked to the photo that the person uploads to the app. But the Lensa team promises that photos are cleared of metadata before they are saved to Lensa systems.For now, Lensa AI is available for private use, although it may well offer its services to corporations. To do so, they will need B2B SaaS marketing.
