Remember shortly after the 2008 Beijing Olympics when everyone learned of swimmer Michael Phelps extracurricular activities?…

While, this time around Ryan Lochte is the merman everyone is getting dirty deets on.

During an interview with Today, Lochte’s mother, Ike, told Today some very candid information about the new Gold medalist:

He goes out on one-night stands.  He’s not able to give fully to a relationship because he’s always on the go.

Previously, Lochte told ESPN magazine that:

My last Olympics, I had a girlfriend — big mistake. Now I’m single, so London should be really good. I’m excited.

In addition, Lochte added to juicy Olympic village rumors by estimating that 70 to 75 percent of Olympians would have sex during the Summer Olympics in London.

“Hey, sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do,” he closed.

In a world of publicists, public relations pros and media spin-doctors, it’s super refreshing to hear from real honest people, or maybe Lochte realizes that in 20 years he could be Bruce Jenner so he just wants to be cool and take advantage of it all while it lasts.
