6th June 2023 – (Stockholm) A man from Sweden proposed a six-week sex championship earlier this year, in a bid to have sex recognised as an official sport in the Scandinavian country. Dragan Bratic, who owns several strip clubs in the southern city of Jönköping, pointed out to local media outlet P4 Jönköping that it’s “perfectly OK to train and compete in sex”, so “it’s a sport like any other”. He believes that the incorporation of sexual orientation as a part of sporting tactics will be a ground-breaking development among European countries.
Disciplines would include body massages, oral sex, foreplay, and endurance – the last one being particularly important when it’s reported the matches will last between 45 to 60 minutes, with a daily session lasting six hours. 20 ‘athletes’ from competing countries would be judged by three individuals on key factors such as chemistry, sex knowledge, sex positions, “creativity” and “artistic communication”.
To make this happen, Bratic applied for the Swedish Sex Federation (SSF) – of which he is chairman – to be made an associate member of the National Sports Confederation. According to its official website, the SSF is the first organisation in the world to practice sex as a sport and to organise the World Sex Championships. They’re even claiming to be organising the European Championship in Sex for this Thursday – apparently. And they’re still accepting applications.
However, the National Sports Confederation rejected the application by saying “we have other things to do”. “It doesn’t meet our requirements, and I can inform you that this application has been rejected,” said Björn Eriksson, then chief of the sporting body.
