Athletes are arriving at the Olympic Village in Japan ahead of the Tokyo Olympics to find “anti-sex” beds.

According to Spanish news outlets, due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, athletes will be discouraged from engaging in any unnecessary social mixing or close interaction, including sexual intercourse.

The “anti-sex” beds are reportedly made from cardboard and they are designed to only be able to withstand the weight of one person.

The beds are expected to break with any sudden movements and they are recyclable.

The athletes were also warned to not use the free condoms that would be given to them as per Olympic tradition. Instead, they were told to bring them back home as souvenirs to raise awareness for HIV.

In a statement, the Tokyo Games said, “Our perspective is that we have to make it absolutely a safe Games because they will come to Japan to compete, and we want to make sure the process is not too impactful for them performing.”
