Condoms Clogging Drains In Athletes Village At Commonwealth Games


It seems like no matter what the event, when you stick male and female athletes together in a village they are bound to bang like jackrabbits.  The Commonwealth Games are no exception, and while the organizers in New Delhi prepared for this by distributing numerous amounts of condoms throughout the athletes village, they apparently did not consider the effect that all the athlete-on-athlete mating would have on the village’s drainage system.

According to reports, the drainage system in the village has been clogged due to the number of non-biodegradable contraceptives that have been flushed down the toilets through the first week of the Games.  It is just the latest problem that organizers have experienced in the athletes village, after dealing with previous threats from hidden snakes and dengue fever.

While organizers have recognized this problem, they are pleased to hear that the athletes are engaging in safe sex.

“If that is happening, it shows that there is use of condoms and I think that is a very positive story. Athletes are being responsible,” Commonwealth Games Federation President Mike Fennell told a news conference on Thursday.  “We all know that encouraging safe sex is a very important thing to do.” [MSNBC]

More important than the proper drainage of fecal matter?  To some, I guess so.
