Organizers told AFP on Tuesday that they still plan to hand out around 150,000 free condoms to athletes, but the new rulebook urges them to "limit your contact with other people as much as possible."

Athletes will look for dates in Tinder during the game?

Get the size right.

Get the size right.

These are the ones with a six foot extension to comply with the social distancing rule?

-6 ( +7 / -13 )

Why can't they pay for them? Besides the locally made won't fit most visitors.

14 ( +17 / -3 )

I recommend the BIG BOY XL...

Don't hand out the regular ones or it will end in 150,000 condoms returned due to a misfit.

Just like the Abenomask fiasco!

I hope they remember that foreigners are not the same size as Japanese. I hope they learned from the "Abeno mask" experience.

11 ( +16 / -5 )

Are these supposed to be worn the normal way or pulled over the head for protection against coronavirus?

19 ( +21 / -2 )

Probably have to show your vaccine passport because you can get some.Hooking up will never be the same at the Olympics.

I recommend the BIG BOY XL...

I second that.Mega BB. Took a few boxes back home as prezzies 2 Xmases ago and gave to cousins and sister's partner.Watching their faces drop was priceless.Even Mom had a laugh about it.The slogan I loved was:"If it's not on,it's not on!"

LOL! so what are they going to call them? Suga no Condom?

What’s the campaign name for this: “GoTo _____?”

-6 ( +6 / -12 )

Their time in Japan will be "minimized to reduce the risk of infection," and those staying at the Olympic Village will be expected to "avoid unnecessary forms of physical contact.

Do what with the condoms? Blow balloons??

-8 ( +6 / -14 )

So safe sex will be maintained by the 2 meter social distance while wearing a condom.

-4 ( +7 / -11 )

Condoms!!!??? But no hugging nor high fives!!!! That will be interesting!!! BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! What next?

21 ( +21 / -0 )

Yes! 2020 Olympics Back in Motion!

Oh, so those weren’t ‘stay six feet from your neighbor’ measuring sticks?

All this taxpayer money for the games and if come down to this?

I hate the Olympics. It means nothing anymore.

Society has turned to a swirling toilet with people are devoid of substance anymore.

All these not-so-subtle references to size are a bit pathetic.

Puts me in mind of a certain former fat president with a dead hamster on his head having a tantrum cos someone said his hands were small.

Size is like money; it ain't how much you got, it's what you do with it that counts.

And if you have to brag about it, you probably aren't confident of being able to do much with it.

Another thing that is pathetic is the whole idea that in a socially-distanced, no-hugs, avoid-unnecessary-physical-contact Olympics which probably (hopefully) isn't going happen anyway, providing 150,000 condoms is any kind of priority.

The same day that Mr Cleo gets a letter in the post telling him that his pension is being cut because the country is running out of money.

No problem. Just make sure people have 2M long tools available........

Condoms. 150,000 condoms. For athletes. How many athletes: 15,000 if all and every show-up. 35% are female. That's approximately: 5,000. At a minimum 5% are gay. That's minimally 250. So. The 150,000 condoms are for the males? Who supposedly will not be interacting with the natives or fans. Are they allowed to interact with so-called 'Sex Workers'? Which begs the question posted above: Do they wear them on their heads? Blow them up like balloons? Take them home as souvenirs? The Olympics are increasingly an absurdity. With incredible amounts of cash invested, with no viable return. The losses are calculated to be upwards of 10 times the cost of infrastructure. Those costs/losses are never recovered by any means over any extended period. If the Games are cancelled, the losses would be less than if the Olympics are held.

True, there may be serious injuries among foreign athletes if this isn't considered properly

it's what you do with it that counts.

Don't forget to ring the doorbell, too.

The Centre for Disease Control of British Columbia, Canada does recommend using “glory holes” to practice safe sex during the pandemic:

Yeah like they do at every Olympics. Are you just figuring this out now?!

Unother reason I dont like the Olympics. I guess a lot of athaletes have no morals. I would let them bring there own condoms and not give them out. I guess they can do it with masks on.

Ahh, you guys have all got this all wrong. I've been on to the IOC and apparently the condoms are not for sex at all. They are to cover the entire person. Its part of the Olympics "State of the art Covid-protection Kit". Its the only way guaranteed - "no Corona can get through". (You know that bit on the top-that's where the head goes). Its all for Insurance purposes apparently. According to a spokesperson,( who was actually wearing one of these, what they refer to as "Body-Condoms" whilst giving the press conference) "It'l make the steeplechase and hurdles a bit akward but the high-jumpers will have a field-day with the old 1970's 'Finsbury-Flop' technique expected to make a come back." They also received complaints from Sprinters that they'l find it difficult to lift the knees, and in the "true spirit of human ingenuity"(because, as the spokesperson said, "sport reflects mans unstoppable ability to adopt after all" - I got very emotional, hearing that bit, I'l admit) they have renamed the 100 meters sprint as "The Hop, Skip and Jump". Just for this year though (Pity). Cant wait for it.
