In a desperate bid to curb the spread of Coronavirus in the Olympic bubble officials from the Japanese Olympic Committee have decided to try out some bizarre new tactics.
According to Japanese sources, athletes will be discouraged from engaging in any unnecessary social mixing or close interaction, including sexual intercourse.
These anti-sex beds are supposedly made from cardboard and they are designed to only be able to withstand the weight of one person. The beds are anticipated to break with any sudden movements. So, it will be clear who has been obeying the rules and who hasn’t.
The only good part is that they are recyclable.
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 news reports.
“Beds to be installed in Tokyo Olympic Village will be made of cardboard, this is aimed at avoiding intimacy among athletes,” American distance runner Paul Chelimo tweeted.
“Beds will be able to withstand the weight of a single person to avoid situations beyond sports,” Chelimo cracked. “I see no problem for distance runners, even 4 of us can do.”
On top of this, the athletes were also warned not to use any of the free condoms that would be given to them as per Olympic tradition. Instead, athletes were told to bring them back home as souvenirs and props to raise awareness for HIV and Aids.
