Sweden officially recognizes sex as a sport and is set to host its inaugural sex tournament in the coming week. Participants in the tournament will engage in daily sexual encounters that can last up to six hours. A panel of judges will determine the winners, with audience input also taken into consideration.
The European Sex Championship is scheduled to commence on June 8 and will span six weeks. Participants will partake in sexual activity for durations ranging from 45 minutes to one hour, depending on the length of their bouts.
The competition comprises three levels, and participants must accumulate a minimum number of points at each level to progress. Points, ranging from 5 to 10, can be earned in each discipline through a combination of public votes and evaluations from a panel of five judges.
The report indicates that the audience will observe the sex competitions, noting various aspects of the sexual activity. Factors such as chemistry between couples, their understanding of sex, and their endurance levels will be considered in determining the ultimate winners.
Dragan Bratych, the head of the Swedish Federation of Sex, expressed his hope for sex to be recognized as a sport, highlighting the educational value and the potential physical and mental health benefits of engaging in sexual activity. He emphasized that, like any sport, achieving desired results in sex requires training, and competition in this realm will inevitably emerge.
Bratych underscored the distinctive nature of this sport, where the objective is to bring extreme happiness to one’s partner. The ability to satisfy one’s partner determines success in this game, in contrast to traditional sports where losing often leads to disappointment.
