Sleeping arrangements for the Olympics have surfaced – athletes will crash into boxes, limit 1 per guest… something honchos apparently don’t want to test with bedroom shenanigans.
Check out the beds that have been set up throughout Tokyo’s Olympic Village, where world-class athletes will arrive by the end of next week for the games to start. As you can clearly see, these babies are made from good old-fashioned cardboard … seriously.
The modest bed frames and mattresses are designed by a company called Airweave – and they produced over 18,000 of them for the Olympics. Yes, they are somewhat complex in their structure and configuration … able to be adjusted to an individual’s taste / contortion.
However, a common theory is that beds are made this way for a reason – namely, the International Olympic Committee and other organizers supposedly want to discourage sex among athletes … a hobby at games it’s getting poop this year because of COVID.
A handful of Olympic athletes – some who have already landed in Tokyo and others who have not – have tested positive for the virus … including an American tennis player Coco gauff.
Yet the American athletics star Paul Chélimo walked into the joke, explaining that it was clear to him that the ruling Olympic powers don’t want there to be any hits … because these beds, theoretically, only support a person’s weight. NBD for runners, however !!!
He writes: “I don’t see any problem for long-distance runners, even 4 of us can.” The implication being that … the runners are light so a few of them probably wouldn’t break the bed.
There is also the tradition of condom distribution, which got an asterisk 2021. The Tokyo Olympic Games Organizing Committee reportedly told Japanese media that condoms are not meant to be used, but brought back to an athlete’s home country for sex education without risk.
In other words … keep it in your pants this time around. That, or risk hitting the ground.
