Sweden and its officials sent the internet into overdrive as it declared sex as an official sport. Now, the latest buzz suggests that the country is hosting a sex championship and many have been wondering if that’s even true.
As per the sources, Sweden has been said to become the first country to recognise sex as an official sport and it is set to organise a "six-week sex championship." Contrary to the recent claims, the local newspapers in April this year reported that although such a competition was suggested, the concept was rejected.
The one-of-a-kind decision sparked widespread discussion on the internet and people have been eagerly waiting for further updates.
The story of the landmark decision first surfaced on social media platforms such as Twitter and gained widespread attention, like many others. Several media sites covered the story with titles like, "Sweden becomes the first nation to make sex an official sport" and "Sweden to hold six-week long sex championship."
The reports mentioned that on June 8th, the country would play host to the first-ever sex championship in Europe. The XXX championship may be hard to believe, but it apparently isn't true.
It is also being reported that a proposition was made to host a contest for competitive sex. The Swedish Sex Federation, which, according to its website, trains and honours individuals who "compete in sex," is the source of the concept.
Bractic, the proprietor of many strip clubs in the Jönköping region of the nation, submitted an application to add the group to the national sports Confederation of the nation in January.
However, the application was turned down by the National Sports Confederation in April because it was incomplete. Björn Eriksson, the head of sports organisation at the time, clarified that sex was not a part of the business.
“It [The application] doesn’t meet our requirements and I can inform you that this application has been rejected. We have other things to do,” said Eriksson.
