Ryan Lochte -- the Olympic swimmer -- might be a little red in the face today after his mom dished on his sex life to the "Today" show on Thursday. In an interview with, Ike Lochte said that her son is really only able to go out on one-night stands.

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

"Everything he has done has been to the max,” she added to Matt Lauer. “He’s unique, loving, and he challenges himself all the time.”

But it's the former comments that are grabbing headlines. Especially considering what he told ESPN The Magazine this summer.

"My last Olympics, I had a girlfriend -- big mistake," Lochte told The Mag in a story about athletes hooking up in the Olympic Village. "Now I'm single, so London should be really good. I'm excited."

And apparently mom is well aware.
