'Hope Sex Will Be Acknowledged as a Sport:' Sweden Hosts the Inaugural Sex Championship with Matches Lasting 45-60 Minutes
The pioneering Sex Championship is slated to be held in Sweden, a country that has classified sex as a sport, early next week. Dubbed the 'European Sex Championship', the event is planned for June 8, under the oversight of the Swedish Sex Federation.
Over several weeks, participants will vie for honours, engaging in six-hour daily competitions. Each individual 'match' is projected to span 45 to 60 minutes. Competitors from various European countries will participate, pitting their skills and prowess against each other across 16 distinct disciplines.
Participants Poised to Earn 5-10 Points for Diverse Sex Acts
On display will be a broad spectrum of disciplines, including seduction, body massages, the exploration of erotic zones, foreplay, oral sex, penetration, endurance, physical appearance, pose execution, creativity in position changes, and the number of orgasms within a set time. Artistic performance, pose transitions, and the ability to elevate blood pressure and heart rate during the competition will also be evaluated.
Further categories include the most intricate and complex position, the most inventive communication (as adjudged by a panel and spectators), the most active pair, artistry in the Kamasutra, and popularity among judges and viewers.
The championship will proceed in three stages, with each requiring a certain point threshold to progress. Participants stand to earn between 5 and 10 points per discipline, adjudicated by a combination of public votes and a five-member panel of judges.
All Genders and Sexual Orientations Welcome
The European Sex Championship celebrates diversity, welcoming competitors regardless of gender or sexual orientation. The organisers underscore the potential strategic relevance of sexual orientation in the sport and aspire for its wider acceptance across European nations.
"Integrating sexual orientation into sporting tactics represents a pioneering move among European nations," the organisers commented.
Dragan Bratych, the president of the Swedish Federation of Sex, voiced his hope for sex to be officially recognised as a sport. He emphasised the potential of sexual engagement to boost both physical and mental health, alongside the necessity of training. "As with any sport, achieving desired outcomes in sex necessitates training. Hence, it is only rational for competition to ensue in this domain," Bratych stated.
He highlighted the unique aspect of this sport where the aim is to provide the opponent with immense pleasure. Unlike conventional sports where losing often culminates in disappointment, success in this game is gauged by the competitor's ability to satisfy their partner.
While traditional sports may foster rivalry, sex as a sport aims to maximise happiness. Bratych notes, "The more pleasure your partner derives, the more points you accumulate."
According to the Swedish Sex Federation, sex as a sport is a demanding activity that requires creativity, emotional intelligence, physical health, and effort. The Federation's president believes that the competition rules will evolve in response to emerging trends and requirements.
In a parallel, yet controversial incident in 2021, students of a Roman Catholic college in Minnesota, USA, reportedly hosted 'sex competitions' on their campuses. Students from St. John's University, an all-male institution, initiated a contest to seduce the maximum number of female students from their sister school, the College of St. Benedict, an all-female institution. This competition was organized by residents of Saint Patrick Hall at St. John's University.
Several hundred students subsequently participated in an outdoor demonstration and sit-in led by the College of St. Benedict's Institute for Women's Leadership, protesting against the purported competition.
