New Delhi, July 24, 2021: Cardboard-made ‘anti-sex’ beds provided to athletes to prevent intimacy at the Tokyo Games village has triggered a plethora of reactions online, with many calling them ‘bizarre’.

The beds will be recycled into paper products post the game. The bed, said to withstand 200 kilograms of weight, was first revealed in January 2020, and aims to promote the idea of social distancing.

In a Twitter thread, Rio Olympics silver medallist in 5000 metres, Paul Chelimo, joked about the bizarre sleeping setup aimed to avoid intimacy among athletes according to the reports published in indianexpress.com.

“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,” he wrote while sharing a picture of the beds.

In the following tweet, Chelimo also joked about people, who pee in their sleep, to be at “risk” on the cardboard beds. “At this point I will have to start practicing how to sleep on the floor; cause If my bed collapses and I have no training on sleeping on the floor I’m done.”
