Amount of condoms ordered for Rio Olympics will make your jaw hit the floor

About 450,000 condoms will be distributed during the Rio de Janeiro Olympics.

The number is higher than previous Olympic Games in part because 100,000 female condoms will be available for the first time, along with 350,000 condoms for men.

The amount is three times more than for the London Games four years ago, according to the International Olympic Committee

About 175,000 packets of lubricant are also being supplied.

The IOC insists the condoms would encourage 10,500 athletes and staff to practice safe sex.

The condoms will be distributed free from a clinic in the Athletes’ Village, or from vending machines in the area.

The village opens on July 24 with the Olympics opening on August 5.

t’s not clear if the increase in contraception is related to Brazil’s outbreak of the Zika virus.

The Zika virus is carried by mosquitoes, but can also be transmitted sexually.

The virus is linked to microcephaly, a condition in which babies are born with undersized brains and skulls.

Brazilian newspaper Folha de S.Paulo said between 100,000 to 150,000 condoms had been supplied at Olympics since 2000 in Sydney.
