Sweden has officially declared sex as a sport and is gearing up to host the first-ever European Sex Championship. The announcement left many scratching their heads, wondering how such a competition could even exist.
The Swedish Sex Federation (SSF), which apparently is a legitimate organizing body behind this championship, claims to have been operating since 2016. While skeptics may raise their eyebrows, the SSF firmly believes in the physical and mental benefits that can be derived from the activity.
The competition, which is set to take place near Gothenburg, promises a “grueling” schedule for participants. Each day, for several weeks, contestants will engage in six-hour-long sessions. During these sessions, they will have between 45 minutes to an hour to complete their specific “matches” or activities.
To ensure fairness and accuracy, a panel of five judges, along with input from the general public, will evaluate the 16 different disciplines participants will compete in. From seduction to massages, the competition covers a wide range of categories.
While the idea of a sex championship may raise eyebrows, the SSF emphasizes that its main motive is to challenge the traditional power dynamics between men and women. They believe that sex when approached with respect and consent, can promote equality and well-being.
The president of the Swedish Federation of Sex, Dragan Bratych, firmly believes that sex as a sport was inevitable. According to Bratych, engaging in sex requires preparation, both physically and mentally. He notes that participants must possess creativity, emotional connection, imagination, physical fitness, endurance, and a flair for performance.
As news of the championship spreads, participants from various European nations have eagerly submitted their applications.
While some may still find the idea bizarre, it seems that Sweden is determined to push boundaries and explore uncharted territories in the world of sports.
