Olympic officials are taking precautions for the rampant sex that will undoubtedly take place at the Winter Olympics, by distributing 100,000 condoms to athletes.

The International Olympic Committee will provide the condoms for the 7,650 athletes competing and living in the Sochi Olympic Village during the games, TMZ reported. That’s roughly 13 condoms per athlete for a 16-day span.

“The distribution of condoms in the village is part of the IOC’s involvement in the HIV and AIDS prevention,” the IOC said.

TMZ notes that just a few years ago, former Olympic competitor Ronda Rousey told the gossip website the village is pure “debauchery.”

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control released a list of “healthy recommendations” for anyone venturing to the Olympics this year.

“Healthy Habits. Always wear seat belts. Wash your hands well and often. Drink alcohol in moderation and use latex condoms if you have sex.”

A more extensive “destination” list under the CDC website elaborates:

“Protect yourself: Use latex condoms correctly. Do not inject drugs. Limit alcohol consumption. People take more risks when intoxicated. Do not share needles or any devices that can break the skin. That includes needles for tattoos, piercings, and acupuncture. If you receive medical or dental care, make sure the equipment is disinfected or sanitized.”
