In recent days, rumors and reports have circulated about an upcoming European Sex Championship to be held in Sweden. While it is important to note that the event lacks official recognition as a sport, it does appear to be going forward on June 8, 2023.
What’s the European Sex Championship?
Reports indicate that participants from 16 different countries will engage in various sexual activities over the course of 6 weeks.
According to NBC,
“Starting from June 8, the European Sex Championship will go on for six weeks where participants will engage in sexual activities from 45 minutes to 1 hour each day in solo matches. The sex session may last up to 6 hours per day.”
People from 20 different countries will participate, and the winners will be decided using both audience ratings and a panel of three judges.
The participants will be judged across 16 disciplines:
- Massage of various parts of the body
- Massage of erotic zones on the opponent’s body
- Oral sex
- Pose Performance
- Artistic performance and exchange of postures
- Endurance and The Number of Orgasms
- Creativity in Change of Position.
- Increased blood pressure and heart rate during competition.
- The most beautiful and difficult position
- Artistic communication
- Most active couple
An unofficial event
The National Sports Confederation of Sweden revealed that the application submitted by the Swedish Sex Federation was deemed incomplete and therefore rejected as an official event. Consequently, the championship cannot be officially recognized as a sport.
Despite the absence of official recognition, the organizers of the event remain committed to proceeding with the competition.
The concept of a competitive sex championship certainly challenges societal norms and pushes the boundaries of traditional sporting events.
Is this for real?
According to multiple reports (and reported via IFL Science, cited below), the event is being organized by strip club owner Dragan Bratic. It does appear to being going forward, even though the confederation continues to distance itself from the event. They told News Checker that it is “false information with the aim of smearing Swedish sports and Sweden.”
However, the Swedish Sex Federation responded by saying,
“This year they accept e-sport as a sport. Is sitting in front of computer and playing video games more sport than healthy physical activity that prolongs life? We will let you to make your own conclusion.
European Championship in Sex exists, and it is starting on June 8th in Sweden. Is it a sport or not… it is not that important. Euro-vision is also a competition, but it is not a sport.”
