Olympic athlete puts ‘anti-sex’ beds to the test: ‘It’s fake. Fake news’


Rhys McClenaghan banged on the Olympic beds … by jumping up and down on it.

The Olympic Village is known for housing the best athletes the world has to offer during the Olympics. It’s also known to play home to copious amounts of, well, sex, maybe best reserved for deleted scenes out of Stanley Kubrick’s “Eyes Wide Shut.”

This year, a small conspiracy theory has emerged around the beds used by athletes in the Olympic Village: With the frames made out of cardboard, Olympic athletes feel that they’re designed to encourage  social distancing, with perceived weight limits on the beds only allowing for one person.

Well, Irish pommel horse Olympian McClenaghan put the beds to the test on Sunday.

“In today’s episode of ‘Fake News at the Olympic games,’ the beds are meant to be ‘anti-sex,’ McClenaghan says in a tweeted video. “They’re made out of cardboard, yes. But apparently they’re meant to break at any sudden movements.”

He jumps up and down on the bed, testing the stability.

“It’s fake. Fake news.”

The materials of the bed and bedframe are made out of reusable materials. Following the Olympics, the cardboard will be recycled, and the beds will be used to make plastic bottles in an eco-friendly move. That is, if the beds are still usable afterwards.

Airweave, the comany that manufactured the beds, assured that its frames are stable enough to support up to 440 pounds.

“We’ve conducted experiments, like dropping weights on top of the beds,” a company spokesperson told AFP. “As long as they stick to just two people in the bed, they should be strong enough to support the load.”

In another twist to the story, condoms will be handed out at the Olympics — but only after athletes leave Tokyo, not during the Games.

With Tokyo operating under strict coronavirus protocols, there’s a question of how athletes will be able to engage in coitus during the 2021 Olympics. Where there’s a will, there’s a way. But for now, consider the Olympic bed myth … debunked.
