Athletes are really putting these beds to the test!
You might have heard the claims that the Olympics have cardboard beds for athletes to sleep on during the Games to stop them from having sex, but the Olympians themselves are putting that theory to bed with hilarious results.
American volleyball player Erik Shoji posted a video on TikTok about the beds after getting questions about them, and fellow athlete Taylor Sander decided to test the bed the best way he knew how.

Irish gymnast Rhys McClenaghan also posted a video of himself testing out the beds by jumping on one to debunk what he called the "fake news" anti-sex bed theory.
For weeks now there have been posts on social media that claim the cardboard beds Olympians will be sleeping on throughout the Games can only hold the weight of one person to prevent the athletes from having sex because of COVID-19 concerns.
According to The New York Times, the cardboard frames are recyclable and the company that made them said they're stronger than ones made of wood or steel. These beds at the athletes' village are said to be able to hold up to 440 pounds.
