The Olympics are coming up, and we're still in the middle of a global pandemic.

Which brings me to my next thing. People have claimed the cardboard beds are "anti-sex" and have even started calling them "anti-sex beds."

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😂

So, Rhys McClenaghan is an Irish gymnast competing in Tokyo.

Rhys posted this video of the "anti-sex" beds in the village...

...he jumped on the beds, proclaiming once and for all...

...fake news.

So you can sleep well tonight, knowing the athletes in the Olympic village aren't sleeping in anti-sex cardboard beds.

Thankfully, these appear to be sex-positive cardboard beds.
