You probably have heard allegations that the International Olympic Committee (IOC) came up with a dopey plan to stop athletes from “getting intimate.”
The reasoning behind the story, that some are claiming, is that the IOC doesn’t want COVID spreading. To help accomplish this they’ve cooked up this supposed idea where they made “anti-sex” beds to discourage any funny business.
And what makes a bed “anti-sex” you might be asking?
Well, they have the mattress sitting on flimsy cardboard that’s only supposed to support the weight of one person.
Whether proving the allegations about the beds were never true, or that the bed won’t actually prevent intimacy between two people, an Irish gymnast tested the strength of the beds and claims they are fake news.
And no, he didn’t get “intimate” with anyone to prove his point – he just jumped on the bed — I mean really JUMPED, and it never broke.
Here’s the blip from the YouTube page:
Irish gymnast jumps on cardboard beds at Tokyo Olympics to debunk ‘anti-sex’ claim, IOC reacts #viralvideo The International Olympic Committee said the beds at the Games are ‘sturdy’ after Irish gymnast Rhys McClenaghan shared a video of himself jumping on them. Key HighlightsRecently pictures of beds made of cardboard at the Tokyo Olympics had gone viral on social mediaA report claimed that the beds are ‘anti-sex’ to avoid intimacy between the athletes at the Games villageThe International Olympic Committee has now debunked the ‘anti-sex’ myth surrounding the beds The report of cardboard beds at the Tokyo Olympics being ‘anti-sex’ to avoid intimacy between the athletes had gone viral recently. The beds at the Olympics village in Tokyo have been made of cardboard but are sturdy enough to handle the weight of two individuals, the organisers clarified on Monday (July 19). Irish gymnast Rhys McClenaghan decided to debunk the myth of the beds being ‘anti-sex’ by jumping on them. In a video shared by him on Twitter, McClenaghan can be seen continuously jumping on a bed to prove his point. A report in the New York Post had claimed that the beds have been designed to ensure athletes don’t get intimate and practice social distancing. In a video shared on Twitter, McClenaghan called it fake news. “The beds are meant to be anti-sex. They’re made out of cardboard, yes, but apparently, they’re meant to break with sudden movements. It’s fake — fake news,” the gymnast said in the video.
