What happens in Rio, doesn't always stay in Rio.

Olympic Villages in past host cities have been plagued with stories of rampant hookups, love connections and athletes gone wild antics, and it looks like this year's games are no different.

An insider tells E! News that behind closed doors, things are getting hot and heavy at Rio's Olympic Village.

"It's pretty intense…some athletes wait until after their competition [to party] and then others have hookups between practices because they say sex actually helps them reach for the gold."

Our source continued, "For the most part, these athletes are protected and careful because the condom stock is endless. They are extra careful this year because of Zika."

And the thing is, according to our insider, athletes are usually hooking up with other athletes because of the Village's strict curfew rules.

"Many of the athletes prefer to meet other athletes on Tinder and other dating apps because that's easier, and then they do group dates with other athlete friends. Many of these women and men have been out of the dating game or never in the dating game before the Olympics, so it's a lot to take in for these athletes, especially after training so hard to be here."

And let's face it, making it to the Olympics is practically the pinnacle of success for athletes around the globe, so they may as well make the most of it!
