…Tinder usage has risen 348% since the start of the Games…

Tinder, that great facilitator of modern romance, has reported that the action has been heating up as many athletes from around the world look for some constructive activities to fill their downtime following the conclusion of their events.

Usage of Tinder in Pyeongchang has spiked 348 percent since the start of the Olympics, according to the company. Not surprising with so many fit and attractive athletes on hand.

“Every Olympics we hear that Tinder is ‘on fire’ in the Villages and we notice our usage increase significantly when people from around the world gather for an event,” a spokeswoman told Reuters.

Expect things to get even more fiery as the Games head towards their conclusion on Sunday and more athletes find themselves stuck in a strange place with time to spare…

But for those athletes who can’t – or won’t – find the time to arrange a steamy foreign hookup, there’s always Pornhub, which unsurprisingly has also reported a usage spike of its own of the magnitude that has previously been measured in the aftermath of a ballistic missile scare.

Traffic to PornHub in the Gangwon-do area, where the Olympic village was located, had increased by 85% on Feb. 12, according to the website. The company attributed the surge to “the influx of Olympic athletes, press and spectators.”

For whatever reason, USAToday’s sports section decided to investigate why anybody would watch porn in an area teeming with young, toned athletes…

What they learned might surprise you…

When quizzed about why pornographic assistance would be needed when the Village is reportedly a hotbed, literally, of inter-mingling, the response was to the point.

“Before competing, it is online stuff,” the male athlete said. “Afterwards is when it’s time for the real thing.”

PornHub is nothing if not detailed. They took a look at the most popular searches and found that “threesomes” were the most searched item on their site during the Games.

“And you’re surprised by that?” a female athlete laughed. “It makes perfect sense. For guys, they like being part of a team. For women, it is about efficiency. You’re trying to get as much as you can in the shortest time possible.”

…Of course, not everybody appreciates being asked probing questions about their sex lives…

“Dude, are you serious?” one United States male athlete responded to USA TODAY Sports when told the increased activity. “You want to talk about porn? Okay, well yeah, we’re human and we have needs too, just like anyone else.”

With the proliferation of apps, young people have grown accustomed to hooking up with people they meet online. But the apps have only changed the face of dating at the Olympics – the Games were notorious for being a hotbed for hookups even before the Internet age. Case in point: The press has been keeping record of the Games’ latex supply since the late 1980s…
