From hot tub orgy to Grindr crashing at London 2012.. here’s a look back at sex scandals that rocked the Olympic Games Comments Off on From hot tub orgy to Grindr crashing at London 2012.. here’s a look back at sex scandals that rocked the Olympic Games 540

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.”

Managing Relationships While Working in the Adult Industry Comments Off on Managing Relationships While Working in the Adult Industry 258

Navigating romantic relationships can be complex, and this complexity often intensifies when one or both partners are involved in the adult industry. In this guide, we’ll explore practical strategies for maintaining healthy relationships, fostering open communication, and addressing challenges that may arise when one’s profession involves adult entertainment.

1. Open Communication:

Communication is the foundation of any healthy relationship, especially when working in the adult industry. Establishing open and honest communication channels helps build trust and understanding between partners.

Example: Provide communication tips, such as setting aside dedicated time for discussions, creating a judgment-free zone, and actively listening to each other’s concerns.

2. Establishing Boundaries:

Clearly defining and respecting boundaries is crucial for both partners. Discussing comfort levels, expectations, and limits ensures that both individuals feel secure in the relationship.

Example: Offer guidance on how to have constructive conversations about boundaries, emphasizing the importance of mutual consent and compromise.

3. Building a Support System:

Developing a robust support system is essential. This includes friends, family, or colleagues who understand and respect the nature of the profession and can offer support during challenging times.

Example: Share stories of couples who have successfully built strong support systems and provide tips on how to nurture these networks.

4. Trust and Transparency:

Trust is a cornerstone of any relationship but becomes even more critical when working in the adult industry. Being transparent about one’s work and addressing concerns promptly helps foster trust between partners.

Example: Illustrate the positive outcomes of trust-building actions, such as being open about work schedules, discussing potential challenges, and offering reassurance.

5. Educating Partners:

Sometimes, misunderstandings arise due to lack of knowledge. Educating partners about the adult industry, its dynamics, and dispelling common myths can promote a better understanding of the profession.

Example: Create a guide for individuals to share with their partners, explaining the realities of the adult industry, emphasizing the consensual nature of the work, and addressing misconceptions.

6. Coping with External Judgments:

Working in the adult industry often comes with societal stigma. Discuss strategies for coping with external judgments and maintaining a strong sense of self-worth within the relationship.

Example: Share empowering stories of individuals who have successfully navigated societal stigma, emphasizing self-love and resilience.

7. Seeking Professional Guidance:

Relationships can benefit from professional guidance. Encouraging couples to seek counseling or therapy when faced with challenges can provide a neutral space for communication and support.

Example: Highlight success stories of couples who have sought therapy to strengthen their relationship and provide resources for finding qualified professionals.

8. Planning for the Future:

Discussing future plans is vital for any couple. Addressing long-term goals, such as career transitions or family planning, helps both partners feel secure and invested in the relationship.

Example: Offer advice on creating a shared vision for the future, navigating career changes, and making joint decisions that align with both partners’ aspirations.

Conclusion:

Successfully managing relationships while working in the adult industry requires a combination of open communication, trust-building, and a proactive approach to addressing challenges. By fostering understanding, establishing clear boundaries, and seeking support when needed, couples can build strong, resilient relationships that thrive despite the unique demands of the profession. Remember, every relationship is unique, and adapting these strategies to suit individual needs is key to a fulfilling and supportive partnership.

Understanding and Navigating the World of Online Adult Content Comments Off on Understanding and Navigating the World of Online Adult Content 250

The internet has transformed the way we access and consume information, including adult content. Navigating this vast and often complex digital landscape requires understanding, responsibility, and respect. In this guide, we’ll explore key aspects of online adult content, helping you make informed choices while ensuring a safe and enjoyable experience.

1. Diverse Platforms and Formats:

Online adult content is not confined to a single platform or format. From websites and streaming services to interactive content, understanding the variety available is essential.

Example: Differentiate between mainstream adult websites, premium subscription services, and emerging interactive platforms, providing a glimpse into the diverse options.

2. Privacy and Security:

Respecting privacy is crucial when engaging with adult content online. This includes understanding the importance of secure connections, anonymous browsing, and being mindful of personal data.

Example: Provide tips on using virtual private networks (VPNs), secure payment methods, and the importance of reading privacy policies on adult websites.

3. Responsible Consumption:

Consuming adult content responsibly involves being aware of ethical considerations. This includes consent, avoiding illegal content, and understanding the potential impact on relationships.

Example: Share stories or case studies illustrating the importance of responsible consumption and the potential consequences of engaging with non-consensual or illegal content.

4. Age Verification and Restrictions:

Most countries have regulations regarding the access to adult content, often requiring age verification. Understanding and complying with these regulations is vital for legal and ethical reasons.

Example: Provide a step-by-step guide on age verification processes on different platforms and emphasize the importance of adherence to legal requirements.

5. Impact on Mental Health:

Consuming adult content can have varying effects on mental health. It’s crucial to be aware of the potential impact and seek support if needed.

Example: Discuss the potential consequences of excessive consumption, addiction, or unrealistic expectations, and provide resources for mental health support.

6. Consent and Ethical Production:

Understanding the concept of consent extends to the production of adult content. Ethical consumption involves supporting platforms and creators that prioritize the well-being and consent of performers.

Example: Showcase initiatives or platforms that prioritize ethical production, emphasize performer rights, and provide fair compensation.

7. Balancing Fantasies with Reality:

Distinguishing between fantasy and reality is important when consuming adult content. Developing a healthy perspective on sexuality involves recognizing the difference between scripted entertainment and real-life relationships.

Example: Share anecdotes or expert opinions on how to maintain a balanced view of sexuality and relationships while consuming adult content.

8. Community and Education:

Online communities and educational resources play a role in promoting healthy discussions about adult content. Engaging with like-minded individuals and staying informed contributes to a positive online experience.

Example: Highlight reputable online forums or educational platforms where individuals can learn more about various aspects of adult content, share experiences, and ask questions.

Conclusion:

Navigating the world of online adult content requires a balanced approach, combining awareness, responsibility, and respect. By understanding the diverse landscape, prioritizing privacy and security, and promoting ethical consumption, individuals can ensure a positive and consensual online experience. Remember, responsible engagement contributes to a healthier digital environment for both consumers and content creators alike.
