It's no surprise that some of the world's greatest athletes are also the world's sexiest people alive. Just imagine getting down with an Olympian. The stamina. The endurance. The rock-solid muscles. I'm sure your lady bits are tingling with American pride at this very moment as you're fantasizing about Ryan Lochte.
But seriously, Olympians are gorgeous. And the Olympics are, apparently, one big sex-fest, if you ask soccer star Hope Solo. "I've seen people having sex right out in the open," she recently told ESPN the Magazine. "On the grass, between buildings, people are getting down and dirty." 5 Sexy Secrets About The Olympics

Unfortunately, we can't all have sex like an Olympian, unless that athlete is the winner of the 50-meter dash: A recent Durex survey revealed that for almost one-quarter of Americans, sex is a quick activity. In an effort to remedy that depressing statistic, Durex called upon relationship expert Dr. Michelle Callahan. In honor of National Orgasm Day, here's her advice on how to earn a gold medal for the big O:
Be sweet. Gentlemen, put down the barbells and turn up the charm. Dr. Callahan suggests romantic gestures throughout the day to encourage your woman to eagerly await the main event in the bedroom. Tell her she's prettier than those Dutch field hockey girls and that she's won the gold medal race for your heart; you'll definitely score big later on.
Sex isn't a race. Olympians strive to be the first to cross the finish line — to leave the competition standing in their dust. Do this in the bedroom, however, and you'll never find yourself on the podium. According to the Durex survey, Americans rarely experience mutual climax during intercourse. To remedy this, Dr. Callahan suggests introducing toys into your love life; think of them as approved steroids, if you will. Don't worry, we won't tell the Olympic officials.
Wrap it up. The Olympic Village is always well-stocked with condoms, and your bedroom should be, too. Not only do they protect your partner from unwanted pregnancy and potential sexually transmitted infections, but they can also improve performance. Just look for a brand that features unique textures to enhance pleasure. And don't be too proud to wear a love glove — if Olympians can wrap up their junk, so can you.
