Olympic Village -- More Sex than Woodstock

8/24/2008 11:02 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Guess this is what happens when chiseled, half-naked Olympic athletes hole-up together in one place.

Former Olympian Matthew Syed, who now works as a commentator, wrote for the Times of London, "This sex fest ... [happened] right here in Beijing. Olympic athletes have to display an unnatural ... level of self-discipline in the build-up to big competitions. How else is this going to manifest itself than with a volcanic release of pent-up hedonism?"

Syed said that winners "as geeky as Michael Phelps" were sought after by the female athletes, but that losers get their share as well.

Matthew says he "got laid more often in those two and a half weeks (at the Barcelona games in '92) than the rest of my life up to that point." And he was freakin' table tennis player!

Guess a little ping-pong goes a long way sometimes ...

YUCK. What a nasty image... those female US Olympians were mostly flat breasted giant she-males, while the men were goofy lanky and awkward. I guess even ugly people have sex.

skeptical at best    

Not sure if I'm remembering this correctly. But I think this is something that was covered during the '96 games. How huge jars of condoms were available everywhere to keep the STDs in check.

There is nothing geeky about Michael Phelps. And he's only going to get better with age. Plus...he's just a nice young guy.

huh?, what makes you think that everyone shares your moral values? They've never been followed in most of the world and not even in the part of the world you live in until the reign of Queen Victoria. Most people understand that sex is a normal part of human relations and nothing to be ashamed of. Adultery is a different matter I agree but I think most of the athletes are single.

Democrats are evil    

Right, all those Olympians running around with a smile on their face until they get that ugly boil on their wee wee that stays with them until the end of time. From Russia with "Love"

Oh great now the media is reporting this. I thought I was the only one who knew about this. Oh well, I first learned about this from a guy at my gym who was acutally with the 1996 team as like a team assistant in Barcelona, oye now i guess everyone knows.
