Athletes dating sites
For instance, at this year’s Winter Games, Pyeong Chang distributed 110,000 condoms to the 2,925 Olympic athletes… “You see how isolated the environment is,” she told ABC News.
“…It’s like making the ingredients of a huge stew — a stew of sexual ingredients.
So if you want to match with an Olympic athlete from home, now is your chance — just make sure you have Tinder Gold, too. Happn, the dating app that uses geotracking to let you know fellow Happners you’ve crossed paths with, had an increase in users at the 2016 Rio Games.
Every day, each Happn user in Rio crossed paths with around 380 other Happn users, which was a seven percent increase compared to a usual day in the city.
“The Olympic Village is the ideal place to connect on Happn,” Claire Certain, Happn’s Head of Trends, tells Bustle.
“Indeed, on your timeline, you can see people with whom you’ve crossed paths with in a 250m radius.
There is stress, which causes tension, and anxiety and energy, and a massive outpouring of chemicals in the body — adrenaline and endorphins. There are some cuties on there.” However, she also told Us Weekly that she ended up deleting the app to put more focus on the Games.
Demi Lovato is just like us: She, too, deals with the highs ― and jaw-dropping lows ― of online dating.
During the last several Olympic Games, a ton of people have used dating apps in Olympic Village, the college campus-type area that houses the athletes. Judy Kuriansky, a sex therapist and clinical psychologist at Columbia University’s Teachers College in New York City, spoke to ABC News about the Olympic Village culture.
And to prepare for all the sex that may be had, free condoms were distributed, too. She attended several Olympic Games, as well as toured the Olympic Villages.
According to a Tinder spokesperson, there has been a 1,850 percent increase in Tinder users who are Passporting to the Olympic Villages.
Meaning, if someone is using Tinder outside of Pyeong Chang, like in Chicago, they can change their location on the app and swipe and match with people at the Olympics, athletes included — but to use the Passport feature, you need Tinder Plus or Tinder Gold. Tinder’s letting those in Olympic Village use Tinder Gold for free during the Games.
