Athletes to sleep on ‘anti-sex’ cardboard beds at Olympic Games amid COVID [PHOTO COURTESY]

Athletes in the Olympic Village have reportedly been given ‘anti-sex beds’ to discourage them from any contact that could spread coronavirus.

The beds are made of recycled cardboard and are designed to take the weight of one person, ‘meaning’ they would collapse under the weight of fornicators to discourage sex amid Covid-19.

Condoms have also been given to Olympic Games participants – a move Olympic officials insist the rubber is for athletes to bring home to spread the message of safe sex and not for use at the Olympic Village.

Reacting to the bed’s design, Kenyan-born American athletes- Olympics silver medallist Paul Chelimo posted to his Twitter account saying that the beds were, in fact, aimed at avoiding intimacy among athletes.

“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. I see no problem for distance runners, even 4 of us can do,” he wrote while sharing a picture of the beds.

Chelimo further warned those who wet the bed at night.

However, some also supported the idea and felt it was the “right” way to set up recyclable Olympic villages.

Four athletes inside the Olympic Village have already tested positive for COVID-19 and are now isolating while authorities establish their close contacts and who may need further testing.
