The naked athletes aren’t even the best thing about ESPN The Magazine’s “Body Issue.”Instead, Sam Alipour’s amazing feature on the ungodly amounts of sex and partying that goes on in the Olympic Village is the highlight.

Alipour spoke with a bunch of former Olympians, who revealed that the Village is one one crazy place.

Many of the athletes opened up and told Alipour crazy stories to illustrate how insane the Village gets. These stories include everything from Hope Solo doing the Today Show drunk the morning after cozying up to a celebrity, to a javelin competitor having sex with three women per day in order to stay relaxed.

At the 2000 Olympics, javelin competitor Breaux Greer had sex with three women every day

Two were Olympians -- a pole vaulter and a hurdler -- and the other was a vacationer of Scandinavian decent.

He had to pull out of the competition with a knee injury.
