Athletes competing in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics this year will find it difficult to sneak sex workers and groupies into their rooms at the Olympic Village.

The Olympic Village has become notorious for its hook-up culture. And Tokyo officials are hoping to break the tradition by making it more difficult for athletes to get their groove on.

Sex is banned in the Olympic Village. And since humans have a tendency to ignore rules, Tokyo Olympics officials are using cardboard beds to discourage the rampant sexual activity that occurred at previous Olympic Games. The cardboard beds are designed to collapse and break under the weight of two (or more) people.

Who can forget the embarrassing stories about athletes bringing sex workers and groupies back to their rooms during the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

According to the LGBT+ dating app Grindr, 38,000 people from 109 different countries used the app to score same-sex hookups during the Olympic Games in Rio. 14 million messages were exchanged during the two week period.

Three male male Olympic athletes agreed to meet a Daily Beast writer for sex within one hour. The article was later deleted following public uproar over "outing" ghey athletes.

It was reported that horny male athletes ran through 450,000 condoms at the 2016 summer Olympic Games!

Tokyo officials are hoping to prevent a repeat of the inappropriate behavior between athletes and sex workers. Particularly since Covid is still around.
