Olympic golden boy Ryan Lochte has boasted about his womanizing, and it makes one wonder what he is trying to prove.
The 27-year-old U.S. swimmer’s mother, Ike Lochte, has said that her son only has time for “one-night stands” and that he is unable to commit to a single girl because he’s “always on the go.”
It comes after the swimming star revealed more of his bachelor lifestyle to Women’s Health magazine, telling one of its reporters that his preferred look on a woman is one of his “long-sleeve button-down shirts and that’s all” – insinuating that he has had a number of women bare all for him.
His rather bold statements seem more about his insecurity with his appearance and feelings that he has to be perceived as macho.
From watching his interaction with the other members of the U.S. swim team and their excessive touching, especially with Michael Phelps, it seems Lochte is bisexual and has gay attractions.
Ike Lochte told the Today show recently that her son puts everything into his sporting career, which has earned five Olympic gold medals.
She said: “Everything he has done has been to the max. He’s unique, loving, and he challenges himself all the time.”
The athlete from Rochester, New York shed further insight into his love life during the Women’s Health interview.
Ryan said that when he sees a woman he wants to meet, he simply makes eye contact.
“Some guys keep staring, but I’ll give a wink and come back later, because it keeps her thinking,” he said.
He did admit that there are some things about women that confuse him.
“It’s impossible to know what they’re thinking,” he said. “If I could have one superpower, I’d be like Mel Gibson in What Women Want, where he reads women’s minds.”
Lochte added that his second most preferred look on women is “white jeans” before admitting that, like other men, he swaps sex stories with his friends.
He said the most attractive thing about a women is keeping a “fit body.”
Model and former Baywatch actress Carmen Electra was also pointed out as his celebrity crush.
Lochte said he sleeps “mostly naked” and prefers having sexcapades with the lights on.
He also spoke about his passion for fashion, which is often demonstrated when he’s out representing his country with Team USA.
He was seen wearing a black fedora to the pool during a training session prior to the London Games’ Opening Ceremony.
Lochte attempts to be ghetto “fabulous” by wearing bedazzled grills on his teeth during public appearances. He was allegedly told he would not be able to claim medals if he wore the diamond-encrusted grill in future.
He told the magazine that having fashion sense is important to him.
“Really important,” he said. “It’s how your personality comes out. I don’t have a set style, but I try not to dress like everyone else.”
Lochte told The New York Times earlier this year: “I want to be different, and fashion gives me the outlet to do that.”
However, his shot at the fashion industry on the cover of Vogue magazine shirtless with Serena Williams and Hope Solo in bathing suits was a failure. Their cover story was the company’s worst selling issue of the year.
Lochte told the NY Times he, “hated talking about swimming,” adding that there is more to him than the sport.
“I don’t want to be stuck in the swimming world,” he said. “I don’t just eat, swim, sleep – I don’t do that.”
Daily Mail revealed recently that Ryan’s younger brother, Devon, 22, a one-time strong aspiring swimmer, was busted for allegedly selling marijuana to a police informant earlier this year in Florida.
Devon had once announced to the world that he hoped to compete alongside his brother on an Olympic relay team some day.

Does the sun have the power to transform humankind?
In Solar (R)evolution, world-renowned German biophysicist Dieter Broers makes a compelling case, pointing to a wealth of scientific evidence that shows a remarkable correlation between increases in solar activity and advances in our creative, mental, and spiritual abilities.
We are in the midst of a dramatic rise in solar disturbances, which have the capability of disrupting the Earth’s geomagnetic field and, as a result, our global ecology. Broers, however, sees this not as an impending apocalypse but as the dawn of a new era.
Drawing on research from a variety of disciplines, he shows how erupting solar activity carries the potential to boost our brain capacity and expand our minds in ways we never imagined possible. Abilities now seen as extraordinary or supernatural—telepathy, extrasensory perception, and off-the-charts intelligence quotients—may soon become ordinary and natural and could very well help us solve the mounting global crises we are facing.
Humankind is going through an evolutionary leap, says Broers, and the process has already begun.
