Has Sweden become the first country to recognize sex as a sport and is about to hold a sex championship? The Times of India claims that the Scandinavian country has officially declared sex a sport, with it also reportedly holding the first-ever European Sexual Championship in Gothenburg on June 8.
According to the report, the six-week competition will be run by the Swedish Sex Federation and will feature sexual activities in 16 categories including seduction, oral sex, endurance, body massage, foreplay, erotic exploration and more.
Competitors at the European Sex Championships are supposed to compete in demanding six-hour sessions each day, with games lasting 45 to 60 minutes. 20 people from different countries will participate, and a panel of three judges will decide the winners of the championship, with the audience also influencing the decision of the sex competitions.
Competitors will be tested on several aspects of sexual activity. The final decision will depend on a number of factors, such as the chemistry between the partners, knowledge about sex, level of endurance, etc. Media reports have also claimed that a couple with the most knowledge of the Kama Sutra, an ancient Indian ritual about sex and erotica, will receive bonus points and the championship will encourage people of different sexual orientations to participate.
Dragan Britich, chairman of the Swedish Sex Federation, said: "Like any other sport, achieving desired results in sex requires training. Therefore, it only makes sense that people will start competing in this field as well. Recognizing sex as a sport was inevitable."
