Lance Armstrong Is One Studly Guy, According To Lance ArmstrongSThe October Men's Journal has a lengthy profile on Lance Armstrong by Vanessa Grigoriadis, which eventually and rather terrifyingly delves into his sex life. Does America really need this during these times of uncertainty? Armstrong's past three girlfriends have been Kate Hudson, Tory Burch and Sheryl Crow (perhaps not in that order. I dunno). The article isn't yet online, but the Huffington Post has transcribed an excerpt:
Armstrong doesn't go on a lot of real dates. "I think it's hard for me, or for anyone in my position, to call someone up and say, 'Hey, can I take you on a date?'" he says. "It's never like that. I meet people casually, while hanging out with friends, so there's less pressure." Sex is something he enjoys, because he didn't get much of it on the Tour. "I had sex if I had the energy. I wasn't one of those guys who believed in the myths about the guy losing his chi," says Armstrong. "But the fact is that if you are riding your bike five, six, seven hours a day, you are not a sex champion. You're just not. You have fatigue, low testosterone, and a lower libido." He grins. "But you know, I never got any complaints." A painting hangs over a stainless-steel bathtub in his bathroom. "Girls love that tub," he says, "They're always splashing around in it, and I've gotta be like, 'Hey, quit splashing the art!" (It's not immediately apparent if "girls" means his daughters or his lady friends.)
But what if there WERE complaints, and he's whitewashing the whole thing? I demand an investigation. And of course I feel that the only person qualified to lead it is World Anti-Doping Agency president Dick Pound. For obvious reasons.
