Remember a couple of weeks ago when it was rumoured that the organisers of the Olympic games had installed beds that fell apart if they were subjected to any sudden movements in an effort to try and stop athletes having sex with each other?

This was exposed as fake new by Irish gymnast Rhys McClenaghan, but if one former Olympian’s recollection of her time at the Olympic Village is anything to go by then it sounds like it wasn’t even worth bothering trying to stop these guys from going at it because everyone is horny AF after their events have finished. Susen Tiedtke was a German long jumper who competed in the 1992 Barcelona games and the 2000 games in Sydney and here’s what she had to say about shagging in the village:
The sex ban is a big laughingstock for me, it doesn’t work at all. Sex is always an issue in the village.
The athletes are at their physical peak at the Olympics. When the competition is over, they want to release their energy.
After the competition, however, roommates were considerate if you needed the room for yourself …
You always heard the ‘party’ of the others, sometimes you could hardly sleep.
There is one party after another, then alcohol comes into play.
It happens that people have sex and there are enough people who strive for that.
I mean there you have it – if you thought that all these athletes were just training all the time and striving for peak physical condition then you’re kind of right, but the underlying truth is that they’re all actually major hound dogs like the rest of us. If anything inspires you to attempt to become an Olympic athlete, maybe it should be that. Can you imagine?
It’s also worth noting that Susan Tiedtke definitely knows what’s she’s talking about here as she met her first husband in the 92 Olympic Village. No doubt they got it on there and then, but it’s also nice to know that there’s a chance of a significant relationship and it’s not all just hot casual sex going on down there, even if it didn’t go the distance. Olympic athletes have feelings too.
