Imagine if we could remove the stigma around sex by turning it into an official sport where people can compete for a gold medal.
It's an interesting idea, but it would definitely spark a lot of debate.
In Sweden, there's a guy named Dragan Bratic who owns strip clubs in the Jönköping area. He believes that using sex as a form of training isn't such a crazy idea, considering it can burn a lot of calories.
Bratic emphasized how sex affects our bodies and minds every day.
In January, he submitted an application to make his association a member of Sweden's National Sports Confederation.
"We are registered, have an organization number and it's perfectly okay to train and compete in sex, then it's a sport like any other," Bratic told P4 Jönköping.
"The incorporation of sexual orientation as a part of sporting tactics will be a ground-breaking development among European countries."
Bratic and the Swedish Sex Federation proposed organizing a "six-week sex championship" in Sweden.
The competition would have six categories, including seduction, body massages, foreplay, oral sex, endurance, and creative aspects of sex, like artistic communication and sexual positions.
Around 20 participants from various countries would take part in the championship, and a panel of three judges would determine the winners.
The contestants' performance would be evaluated based on different aspects of sexual activity, such as the chemistry between the couple, knowledge about sex, and endurance level.
It has been reported that couples who are familiar with the ancient Indian text on sex and eroticism called the "Kamasutra" might receive extra points in the competition.
The championship would require participants to engage in six-hour sessions per day, with each individual match lasting between 45 to 60 minutes.
Unfortunately, in April, the National Sports Confederation turned down the application.
Björn Eriksson, the then chief of the sports body, said: "It [The application] doesn't meet our requirements and I can inform you that this application has been rejected. We have other things to do."
Commenting on the sports-like aspect of sex, Dr. Maryanne Fisher said: "Unlike bowling, though, sex can also increase self-esteem, cardio-vascular health, emotional intimacy, improve sleeping and increase immunity."
