Irish gymnast jumps on Olympic Village bed to debunk 'anti-sex fake news'

Irish gymnast jumps on Olympic Village bed to debunk 'anti-sex fake news'

nith_wct

Nobody is going to make thousands of cardboard beds designed and manufactured to only allow a single person just to keep athletes from fucking. This is the Olympics anyway. There are some people who weigh more than two people from another sport.


Balauronix

This story was dumb to begin with. How the fuck would the be able to make a bed to both prevent a couple of gymnasts and a couple of weight lifters from having sex. The force difference is like the weight of a horse. I'm glad Japan made recycled beds. A lot of times these events lead to millions of dollars constructing something that gets abandoned after 2 weeks for all eternity.


nith_wct

It's a great idea for what it's actually intended to be. The real story is how surprisingly strong they are.


tangentandhyperbole

Shigeru Ban has been using recycled paper tubes in architecture for years now. He's used them as columns, and as the structure of temporary housing after natural disasters. Wouldn't be surprised if he consulted on it, as he's been an advocate for recycled materials for decades.


loozerr

It also is kinda like origami


ArcadianDelSol

the sex or the beds?


SpatchyTG

Yes


morriere

also springy! the dude in the video seems to bounce quite well


Mermaid_Belle

Well, he is a gymnast.


morriere

i did consider that but it still seems bouncy lol

The current reigning super-heavyweight Olympic champion, [Lasha Talakhadze](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lasha_Talakhadze), weighs around 176 kg. [Simone Biles](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Simone_Biles) weighs around 47 kg. Going by that I expect you can find four gymnasts for which you can find a weightlifter who weighs more than them.


nith_wct

I wonder how many he could lift.


xixbia

His clean and jerk record (which I must admit is a fitting name considering the context) is 264 kg. Of course the weight distribution of gymnasts will be a bit less well balanced than he is used to, so he probably can't lift quite that much. But I reckon he could definitely lift at least four. Five would be a bit more difficult as I'm not sure you'd be able to spread the weight evenly enough.


PeachyCoke

In this context it would be jerk and clean


xixbia

I think from a hygiene perspective it should be clean and jerk and clean again.


friskmachine

We clean, we jerk, we clean again! WITNESS ME! *spray paints mouth*


JBthrizzle

SleepyforPresident

MEDIOCRE!


Panixs

Fifth one could be the bar.


readwaytoooften

They're gymnasts. They could probably find a way to balance themselves while he lifted.


ConformistWithCause

Couldn't you argue though that depending on the type of gymnast, they would be able to affect their balance to be more liftable. You're right but I feel like if we have Olympic gymnasts, let's go for Gold


xixbia

Hmm good point, by manipulating their body position they could manipulate the center of balance. But there would still be an issue with there being so much more volume, and they wouldn't be able to hold entirely still. But maybe if they're light enough it might work with five. Say they weigh 45 kg each that would come to 225 kg, which might be enough below his maximum that he could manage it.


Onihige

All of them, if they take turns.


SkyezOpen

I'd watch that.


ryuuhagoku

So gymnast threesome and weightlifter wank is according to the rules?


schnupfhundihund

But a weightlifter and a Judoka getting it on might proof difficult on those bed. But that's true for most beds tbh


_eL_T_

And in any case, the blocks would be removed and the mattress on the floor.


somecow

You would still use a mattress? Damn, classy mc snooty pants over here.


half3clipse

Also could you fucking imagine if one of the beds collapsed and injures an athlete. They'd run every bus in tokyo over whoever made that call.


guerroconpollo

The article is pretty cool. Japan is using cardboard bed frames to promote recycling.


Ma1

What a bummer for Japan on this one. They set out to do something good for the environment and everyone turned it into a story about them trying to prevent athletes from hooking up.


[deleted]

Like gymnasts need beds to fuck. They’ll do freaky handstand blowjobs if they want.


IJustGotRektSon

That's what I said when I was talking with some friends. Is not like you need a bed to have sex anyways. I'd be more concerned about them not giving condoms which I don't know if it's still a thing


A_Mouse_In_Da_House

150,000 with the request to use them at home


abraxsis

Well now I understand why Japan has the rapidly declining birthrates they do. I mean, they don't even want foreigners fucking in their country.


renadi

Here, have these condoms now don't fuck. Uhhh, sure Mr Japanese man.


manmadeofhonor

I mean, there was that movie The Bronze with Sebastian Stan and Melissa Rauch as gymnasts [getting freaky](https://www.xvideos.com/video32575511/sebastian_stan_nude_in_bronze) (NSFW) which was honestly more impressive than sexy


IchWerfNebels

I saw that movie a long time ago, but I just realized it's Bernadette fucking Bucky while Richard Hendricks watches. Damn.


Federico216

This is my favorite sex scene in film, since Team America


icomewithissues

WTF did I watch, and why did I watch it again


Ma1

That’s gotta be a category on porn hub for sure


MrHollandsOpium

It already is


dave70a

Welp? You can’t just say that and not share!!! Keeping all the good stuff for yourself.


MrHollandsOpium

Bro, relax. Here’s a good start…. Bing search: Kelsi Monroe; also Gigi Rivera - Contortionist (RealityGang); and Amia Miley - Football Night;


SteezyAs314

The vast amount of knowledge some people have in porn is. Impressive isn’t the word I’m looking for but idk maybe it is


mosstrich

Jizztacular, squirtastic, hard to swallow?


VolkspanzerIsME

ReDickulous?


LukariBRo

I tend to go with "astounding" or "spectacular" which annoyingly carry slightly more positive connotation than desired, but at least aren't exactly positive when taken completely literally.

1handedmaster

I literally saw a post saying "You mean the most physically fit and flexible people don't have a bed to have sex on? Whatever will they do?"


_kalebb_

I dated a gymnast who once did that, was not as sexy as it seems.


thewholerobot

I'm just not going to take your word on that.


_kalebb_

You can't really give a BJ with all the blood rushing to your head...


Jengalover

Surely there were some benefits


_kalebb_

She was the most flexible person I've ever met, had boobs that defied gravity and a perfect figure. Not very adventurous in bed but looking at her nude was like looking at a painting.


itsyourmomcalling

Like a 369° flip


lispychicken

"freaky handstand" Gauge has entered the chat


Robthebank1

I mean in fairness it's not just the gymnasts, the ioc typically provides 100,000 or more condos for the Olympics in the athletes village because there is a significant amount of congratulatory and consolation sex as well as "I don't think I've ever fucked someone from your country before wanna bang?"


LightBadger

Tbf every story ever published about the athletes’ village always seems to be about them hooking up.


PhilosopherFLX

Sex sells adclicks.


musicaldigger

how much sex do these people have?? i feel like they would be exhausted from all that athleticism


AbruptAbe

http://www.cnn.com/2010/LIVING/03/01/condoms.vancouver.olympics/index.html *Over the course of 17 days, the health agency doled out 100,000 condoms, supplied by the British Columbia Centre for Disease Control. And after buzz, some based on rumors, grew that there was a shortage -- "We were not getting calls from people saying, 'Help, I need condoms,'" Adams laughed -- an emergency shipment of 8,500 additional rubbers came in from the Canadian Foundation for AIDS Research.* Small edit to clarify this was overall condoms used, but the village still uses quite a few.


JakkuScavenger

Christ! And Vancouver were winter Olympics! Summer Olympics usually have more athletes competing!


Fishingfor

Imagine you put off sex, relationships, and partying all throughout high school and college to achieve your goals and at the end, when all the pressure and stress is gone, there is a massive party with everyone on campus who is also in the exact same situation and almost all of them are really good looking and everyone in the best shape humanly possible.


leshake

Also everyone is ridiculously good looking and young.


Bored-Bored_oh_vojvo

Yeah and also they're youthful and attractive.


Perpetually_isolated

They are on tightly monitored and supervised schedules for years, until they get to the Olympic village, where they are left to their own devices full of literally the most physically fit people on the planet.


JustADutchRudder

Also clothing is banned from the Olympic village, in order to add a feel of the ancient games to everything.


Crowbarmagic

What I also like to add since I haven't seen it mentioned yet: In a lot of countries the people are used to firm mattresses, and actually prefer them over the very thick and soft kind of mattresses you basically sink away in. In the case of Japan: They traditionally sleep on a relatively thin mattress on the floor. So yes, the mattresses in the Olympic village might be firmer than some athletes are used to, but I think that could simply be a cultural difference, cardboard bed frames or not.


renadi

Firm mattresses are better for sex anyway. Just enough cushion.


Glass_Memories

Yup, having sex on a super pillowy memory foam mattress that you sink into is actually really difficult, it's like trying to fuck in quicksand or swamp mud.


Nghtmare-Moon

I’ve never been in a lustful situation where someone said “darn, there’s not a comfortable bed anywhere, guess sex isn’t happening”


dcrico20

Seriously. In my early twenties I was having sex on a futon mattress on the floor. If people want to fuck, they don’t care about the bed situation.


Primitive_Teabagger

Had a party in HS when my parents were gone, and thought everyone left by morning when I checked around the house. Nope. My mom got home and found one of my friends and her hookup fucking in the laundry room, they had dumped out the dirty clothes in the hampers as a makeshift bed and were still going at it

Aquanauticul

The world's most physically fit and dedicated athletes don't need beds to bang lol. Hell, some might welcome the challenge


karrachr000

> some might welcome the challenge Like in the Russian Village some years back, when the village was so messed up that some athletes ended up being locked inside of their rooms when the doors didn't work. Their solution was just to Kool-Aid Man through the cheap-ass doors.


Fishingfor

Should we call a locksmith? Fuck that, call the shot putters!


OopsItWentInTheButt

not surprising from a country with a very solid waste management system.


StaphAttack

This is so dumb. When the cardboard bed news first came out people brought up the concern they couldn't support the Olympics extra curricular activities. Japan came back and assured people how much weight they could support. There is literally a record of Japan assuring athletes they could do it on their cardboard beds and now some idiots have come up with some conspiracy theory to the counter. Really people where have you been?

fuzzywuzzybeer

Is it me, or does this article not actually talk about the irish athlete who debunked the news. Weird reporting.


Gayfetus

That's gymnast Rhys McClenaghan. He is one of the best in the world on pommel horse, and the first Irish gymnast to win a medal at the gymnastics world championship, when he [won bronze](https://youtu.be/8BfsdgagrDo?t=1013) on pommel in 2019. There's a very good chance you will see him on the podium for pommel horse at these Olympics!


thetburg

Also look for him to be having sex on that pommel horse.


jethvader

Nah, that pommel horse is made of cardboard and can only support the weight of one gymnast.


handmadeabyss

So they’re cool with masturbation I guess


buttercream-gang

I was impressed at his form just jumping on the bed! His upper body barely even moves!


melbbear

He can pommel my horse anytime


tafrawti

pommeling away, night and day


Trevski

And now he gets to be the face of fucking at the Olympics!


frostygrin

You need two gymnasts to actually debunk that. :)


Belckan

No doubt he'll get plenty of offers to corroborate it in the coming days.


killerklixx

Or corrugate it


Belckan

Bed is gonna dissolve D:


imaloony8

Yeah, if he really wanted to debunk the story he would have jizzed all over his bed before jumping on it.


TalonasGnomeFollower

Shit... I'll help him.

I'm not a gymnast but I'll happily volunteer if that Irish guy is still around.

He is hot af! 😍


adsfew

I'm a straight dude, but I can understand why he's already debunked the rumor.


Monarc73

De-bunk what? The bunk myth?


frostygrin

Yes, put it to bed.


Prof_ThrowAway_69

Teamwork makes the bed croak.


Bind_Moggled

The team events are always the most fun.


SpaceLemming

Right!? This guy needs to fuck to properly disprove the theory


buckyhermit

NGL, when I first heard about the beds, the first thing that came to mind was the WWE's Spanish announce tables – strong enough to stand on, but collapses after a Pedigree. Now I wanna see Olympic athletes body-slamming each other through their beds, right before they leave.


PARANOIAH

Deenyc43

You can't stop all the sex that goes on during the olympics. Everyone is young, in peak physical conditions and pumped up with testosterone from working out. Sex is inevitable.


thewholerobot

I'm just pissed they don't televise that part.


lsbe

Now that would pump the ratings way up


killerguppy101

New Olympic event: competitive pounding


thewholerobot

I mean they let curling slide in there.


JudgeHoltman

They've also been training their entire lives for that moment that happened YESTERDAY. They've put off sex, relationships, carbs, alcohol and pretty much all fun to have their shot at gold. But now it's over. They're free. And adults. And literally everyone is smoking hot and nobody cares. It's THE time to make some bad decisions.


Mr_Quackums

On top of all that: Everyone is in an exotic location surrounded by people they will never see again who are all in peak physical shape with amazing accents.


Gordonb0mbay

And if there are offspring they are going to be legends so kind of a win win win win win.


Umutuku

Not exactly guaranteed. Like, the swimming advantages might offset some of the gymnastic advantages and you could still end up with a kid who grows up physically talented at managing accounts receivable.


beet111

My friend is competing in Tokyo and they don't give up that much. They still have a social life while training.


BlackSquirrelBoy

None of these athletes cut out carbs


ShitItsReverseFlash

>carbs Uhhh no? There *are* healthy carbs.


valhalla_jordan

And you really need them to train as hard as they do.


STerrier666

Yeah I read that they gave athletes Condoms during previous Olympics though I haven't found anything concrete to back it up so I'm taking it with a pinch of salt.


onebloodyemu

It is completely true > (Reuters)Tokyo Olympic organizers plan to give away about 150,000 condoms at next month's Games, but are telling athletes to take them home rather than use them in the Olympic village But they’re definitely not to be used during the Olympics 🙄 https://edition.cnn.com/2021/06/14/sport/social-distancing-sex-in-the-olympic-village-spt-intl/index.html


InflammatoryMuskrat

Here's a bunch of free condoms, make sure to practice safe sex! Oh, but not here of course, that would be violating social distancing rules. Wink wink, nudge nudge.


dao2

Well they probably would prefer not to and they shouldn't, but they likely realize that they will anyway so might as well provide them.


IchWerfNebels

Effective sex education in a nutshell. "We'd really prefer if you didn't, but we all know you're gonna, so here's how to do it safely."


Bugbread

Yeah, I'm a little confused at the original comment. Does this person think that every middle school that teaches kids sex ed is actually *wink wink nudge nudge*-ing students to have sex? That's bizarre.


STerrier666

Damn, I don't think that will stop them at all.


ree0382

They’re distributing something like 160,000 condoms this year, which they have doing at Olympic regularly for some time now.


Ragnaroq314

In Rio they gave out 450,000 condoms. As others have mentioned, they are only giving out about 1/3 of the usual amount, 150,000


epote

Yeah totally from working out. Nothing else, move along now.


4745454B

You know, if the women athletes are pumped full of testosterone, someone is doing doping wrong and on too late state ;)


InflammatoryMuskrat

Maybe they just hired some former East German coaches.


ooru

It may not come around often, but it's nice to see a real NtO headline.


AntiTheory

I heard about the cardboard beds this morning and I thought the anti-sex narrative was really a stretch. The accommodations for the Olympic villages are always incredibly shitty and construction contracts for these types of facilities are always given to whoever promises to build it for the cheapest. Even the "prevent the spread of COVID" angle didn't make much sense considering everyone is intermingling in between events. The cardboard bedframes and plastic fiber mattresses are a cost-cutting strategy that are being reframed as an environmental-conscious decision.


JustUseDuckTape

The Olympic village is also planned *way* in advance. There were stories ages ago about the cardboard beds, can't remember if it was before covid but I'm pretty sure before the games were postponed. So unless someone at the IOC had a crystal ball there's no way they decided on cardboard beds to stop covid.


Return_of_the_Bear

Didn't one set of accomodations a few years ago flood??


KingVicodan

This year’s Olympic Games have been pretty disrespectful to the Japanese. They’re having another wave of COVID (Tokyo is in a state of emergency) and the majority of the people there don’t want the games to be held. But the IOC has made it clear that the wishes of the Japanese are not part of the equation; there was talk implying that the Japanese Prime Minister wouldn’t be able to stop them. Several athletes have tested positive for the virus. And the head of the IOC is making things worse with his behavior. He referred to the Japanese as “Chinese”-something that grossly insulted natives of both countries.


Aditya1311

I work with a bunch of Japanese folks and we were chatting and the whole Olympics thing came up. It's true that most people don't want the Olympics to be held at this time but they also feel a sort of obligation - they made a commitment and they feel they have to see it through. Don't know if that's the prevalent sentiment there but pretty much all of them were nodding their heads. Obviously if the Japanese government did not want the games to happen in Japan, they would not happen. The IOC can't overrule them and it's not like they have a military to enforce their will or something.


knucklehead27

If you’re claiming the IOC can question Japan’s sovereignty, you’re crazy.


misterperiodtee

> Paul Chelimo, a runner for Team USA, had previously claimed on his Twitter account that the "beds to be installed in Tokyo Olympic Village will be made of cardboard, this is aimed at avoiding intimacy among athletes." What an asshole.


GandalfsHairyTaint

He's just trying to set up plausible deniability for why he doesn't get laid while at the Olympics.


JohnnyDarkside

Or keeping his SO from thinking he is.


xixbia

>I see no problem for distance runners, even 4 of us can do😂 The article conveniently left off the end of [that tweet](https://twitter.com/Paulchelimo/status/1416240846039523331?s=20). It seems to me this tweet was tongue in cheek.


justart5

If you look at his Twitter thread, I think it is at least plausible that he is joking. I’m not saying it was a good joke, but at one point he mentions people wetting the bed, so I think the media taking it seriously might be majority to blame.


Turkey_Teets

Yeah, it's taking a tweet/tweet thread and just running with it instead of doing any research/follow up. I don't blame Chelimo.


WildSauce

Oh so just regular modern journalism then.


Crowbarmagic

Even if it wasn't a joke: Several media outlets ran with the story without verifying. They'd e.g. use the headline "BEDS IN OLYMPIC VILLAGES DEVELOPED TO DISCOURAGE SEX". Then *somewhere* in the article they have a single line saying just one athlete claimed this. But in the rest of the article they act like it's true.


Raudskeggr

Except he was taken out of context there. He was making a joke (and several others), which was intentionally taken out of context by some writer who thought it would be a fun clickbait. And of course once one news article exists to make the claim, misinformation (like with the human centipede) is swallowed and passed along to all the other news sites and blogs and social media feeds. So again, it was a "Journalist" who was the real asshole here.


series_hybrid

Yes, because horney young people have never had sex on a floor.


Op_has_add

That guy jumps higher on a bed than I would if I jumped off a building


v3ritas1989

The entire Olympics is full of young people in their prime years, having perfectly trained bodies. Overflowing with adrenaline and stress. No matter what you do, these people gonna fuck!


vipnasty

The best athletes on the planet don’t need a bed to fuck. Cardboard bed or not, they’re getting laid. Covid concerns aside, good for them!


urban_zmb

Wasn’t the original purpose to not spend money on actual real beds? Less money used more money in the pockets of the organizers

I believe it was to promote recycling, but of course money will be saved as well

Fun fact: even before COVID, there were reports in Jan 2020 about these beds. The goal of the beds is make the Olympics village more environmentally friendly. From the AP: https://apnews.com/article/ap-top-news-olympic-games-tokyo-sports-general-sports-226b432362e6056d0d0807afa76f9433

Oh ya you betcha. A bunch of young, fit people with similar interests are tossed together for a couple weeks. I'm sure those condoms will go unused.

cookieaddictions

Why would the Olympics dare if athletes are having sex? The only reason might be COVID this year but they were talking about their recyclable beds well before COVID. This was always the plan.
