Recently the Internet was whirled with the outrageous news that Sweden had declared sex a sport and was organizing a tournament.

A headline on the website for The Times of India, one of India’s most popular and reputable newspapers, reads that

“Sweden Will Soon Host the European Sex Championship.” According to the report, Sweden has officially recognized sex as a sport and, to determine who’s best at it, would host a tournament in which contestants would engage in daily encounters lasting up to six weeks.

The competition was supposedly scheduled to begin on June 8 in the city of Gothenburg.

Numerous media outlets from South Asia, and Africa showed interest in the misguided topic without checking the facts. the International media fell for the gag and reported it as truth.

A prominent Indian media house associated with CNBC published “details” on how to participate in the event, even including an email address associated with a “Swedish Sex Federation.” Interestingly, a website with that name does exist, but it led to a pornography website with a different URL that is currently running a countdown for the “tournament” and claims that it will live stream the event.

However, the Swedish sports body has denied the existence of any such event.

DW reported that “The Swedish Sports Confederation, said in a written statement from Stockholm to DW. “Right now, false information is being spread in some international media about Sweden and Swedish sports, “These are vigorously denied.”

-Posten Swedish-language dailies, reported that a Swedish man named Dragan Bratic was behind the whole drama.

According to the newspaper, Bratic owns several strip clubs and wanted sex to be classified as a sport. He submitted an application to become a member of the confederation in January of this year. The Swedish Sports Confederation confirmed to DW that there was an individual who claimed there was a sex federation and applied for membership, but the application was rejected in May.

“The Swedish Sports Confederation has drawn attention to the fact that in some parts of the international media, news is currently being spread that a sex federation has become a member of the Swedish Sports Confederation,” Setzman said in the statement. “It is false information to smear Swedish sports and Sweden

The confederation categorically denied any collaboration with a sex organization. “There is no sex federation that is a member of the Swedish Sports Confederation,” said Setzman.

The so-called sex federation accused SSF that despite the 2 billion Swedish kronor allocated (by the Swedish government) to registered sports organizations, (Swedish Sex Federation) was not helped by it”

Bratic further said that despite not being recognized, they would hold a sex championship. the Swedish Sex Federation finances the entire European Championship with its own funds and with its own voluntary work.”
