Ryan Lochte’s Olympic glory may not be limited to the pool. He’s not the monogamous type. He might be inseminating the villagers as we type these words, or at least the “70 to 75 percent” who might be down for that sort of thing. Lochte’s mom alluded to this in an interview with the Today Show.
“He goes out on one-night stands,” Ike Lochte told Today.com while being interviewed on the set of NBC’sToday show. “He’s not able to give fully to a relationship because he’s always on the go.”
That’s the rationalization anyway. A mother will put her positive spin. For the man who lists his celebrity crush as Carmen Electra and thinks women look best in his button down shirts (or wants women to think he thinks they look best in his button down shirts), this may be by choice rather than necessity. Women are all lying and evil anyway.
Aspiring bachelor athletes, you don’t want to be Lochte. You want to be Derek Jeter. Don’t promote any narratives. Don’t even be cryptic. Confirm, deny and acknowledge nothing. Sure, something absurd like the gift bags might leak out, but the essential point is you don’t know what Jeter is getting up to, but you would believe anything. That’s how you become a legend.
