Fighting the Olympic sexual invasion

By DOUG SAUNDERS

Doug SaundersStrolling the streets of Salt Lake City, you're bound to run across a few Utah residents with an important message for visitors and locals: Lock up your daughters. Athletes are here, winter athletes, and we all know what that means.

It means sex. Just ask Brandi Swindell, an anti-sex campaigner with a group called the Utah Eagle Forum, whose members have taken to the streets in futile combat against the nefarious forces of fornication.

Ms. Swindell expressed her worries succinctly the other day in a series of frenzied questions:

"Where are the Olympic athletes getting their sex partners? Are they bringing their own?... Or are they going out on the streets of Salt Lake City looking for our sons and daughters?"

What has set off the ire of Ms. Swindell and her friends is the Olympic organizing commitee's effort to hand out tens of thousands of condoms to Olympic visitors, so that just in case they manage to squirrel out of their eight layers of clothing for some icy ruttings in the snow, they don't contribute to the state's already high rate of sexually transmitted diseases.

Ms. Swindell, whose catchy slogan is "just say no to condoms," would rather the visitors keep their hands, and other organs, to themselves. She wants to "send a positive message of morality and wholesomeness" to the Olympians. That message, in non-Utah parlance, is simple: Keep it in your snowsuit, Jacques.
