The cardboard beds at the Tokyo Olympics Village are sturdy, organisers reassured on Monday, after a report warned they weren’t strong enough for sex.
Irish gymnast Rhys McClenaghan filmed himself jumping repeatedly on a bed to prove the point, after the report in the New York Post claimed the beds were deliberately flimsy to promote social distancing.
“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!” McClenaghan tweeted.
The official Olympics Twitter account thanked McClenaghan for debunking the myth, adding the sustainable beds are sturdy!
