“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.
Beds to be installed in Tokyo Olympic Village will be made of cardboard, this is aimed at avoiding intimacy among athletes
Beds will be able to withstand the weight of a single person to avoid situations beyond sports.
