Listen Now: 2020’s X-Rated Olympic Games
The Tokyo Olympics are months away, but it’s not the televised events some people are preparing for.
Every four year the summer olympics bring together the world’s best athletes competing for a spot on the medal stand. But when their event is over it’s athletes extracurricular activities the host city must be ready for.
Recently the beds athletes would be sleeping on were revealed and it turns out they are made of cardboard. A fact some of the larger athletes pointed out might make some undercover action a little risky. Now the maker of the bed is assuring people it can withstand a weight of four hundred and forty pounds and has been put through rigorous stress tests.
The company says it has conducted experiments such as dropping weights to make sure they won’t fold under pressure.
And there is reason to be concerned. At recent Olympic Games, use of the dating app Tinder spiked and organizers reported handing out hundreds of thousands of condoms. So far the London games had the most action, but Tokyo is expected to be a close second.
