Olympic Athletes In Tokyo Will Sleep On Cardboard Beds To Keep Them From Having Sex
“What happens in the village stays in the village.”
If you know anything about Olympic Village, you know that the boots be a knockin’ there.
Back in 2012, United States Women’s Soccer goalkeeper Hope Solo came right out and said it.
“There’s a lot of sex going on… I’d say it’s 70 percent to 75 percent of Olympians.”
So much so that every year, the Olympics bring in hundreds of thousands of free condoms for the athletes. For the last summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in 2016, 450,000 condoms were distributed to competitors.
But this year, the athletes will be given them as “souvenirs,” and encouraged not to use the 160,000 condoms in Tokyo’s Olympic Village in order to prevent the spread of COVID.
“The distribution of condoms is not for use at the athletes’ village, but to have athletes take them back to their home countries to raise awareness (of HIV and AIDS).”
But Tokyo is going even further to keep athletes from bumpin’ uglies this year… cardboard beds.
Yep, you heard that correctly, cardboard beds.
Specifically designed to be environmentally friendly, these custom cardboard beds are also designed to only hold one person. If two Olympians decide to hop in the sack, the bed will collapse.
United States runner Paul Chelimo recently shared a pic the new digs.
It was also recently announced that fans will no longer able to attend the Olympic Games this year, as the COVID situation in Japan continues to escalate.
Needless to say, it’s going to be an interesting year…
The Tokyo Olympics are set to kick off on July 23rd.
