Although it’s not an official event, sex looms large at every Olympics (perhaps all the way back to the Greek days). The Olympic Village is notorious for sexual escapades among the athletes, and every time the event is held, officials distribute hundreds of thousands of condoms. But maybe not this time around in Tokyo. The world’s best athletes will sleep on cardboard beds, “allegedly designed to collapse under the weight of fornicators to discourage sex amid COVID-19,” the New York Post reported. “Olympic officials — who already warned 2021 Games participants to avoid two-person push-ups because of the coronavirus — have set up 18,000 of the cardboard beds in the notoriously sex-crazed athletes’ village, according to Dezeen magazine,” the Post wrote. The bed frames are constructed of cardboard and the mattresses are made from polyethylene fibers that are easy to recycle. “The sleeping equipment had to align with the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games’ sustainability plan, which aims to deliver a more sustainable event and showcase innovative concepts and solutions that will have a legacy after the Games,” the magazine wrote.
