Looks like the Olympic Village in Rio is a great place if you’re single. Tinder has take over and the athletes couldn’t be happier, the CBS reports. Sunny Rio is the perfect place for meeting someone new.

These Summer Games may be a perfect environment for hook ups. About 10,000 athletes are living in a 31-building compound far away from Rio’s iconic beaches of Copacabana and Ipanema. The village is secluded among the misty lush mountains of Rio’s west borough with only a few shopping centers and high-rise towers are nearby.

“The Olympics is a very sexually charged time,” said Julie Spira, an online and mobile dating expert. “Young athletes and attendees have been using dating apps heavily in prior Olympics, but now the popularity of an app like Tinder continues to grow and grow.”

But guys let’s please be safe down there with all the talk of Zika. Grab a handful of condoms. Slate has a down and dirty history of the condoms and the Olympics. This year will see over 450,000 distributed.


Be safe. Have fun. And, you know, win.
