Porn star ‘winner’ of European Sex Championships gives new details about ‘chaotic’ event


An adult film star who ‘won’ the European Sex Championships has revealed images from inside the venue before her fellow competitors walked out of the ‘chaotic’ event last week, sparking a war of words between those involved.

The inaugural tournament was set to begin on June 8, with a reported 20 representatives from a dozen or so nations descending on an undisclosed location in Gothenburg, Sweden to take part in the seedy competition.

However, the six-week event to determine the continent’s most elite sex performers was plagued with issues, and it was closed down within a matter of days – sparking a battle of words between the organiser and competitors.

While the organisation behind the tournament – the Swedish Sex Federation – accused some of the participants of ‘disobeying the rules of the competition’ by drinking alcohol and ‘consuming illegal psychoactive substances’, some porn star competitors slammed it for a lack of hygiene and for not carrying out HIV checks.

Now, Croatian adult film star Marija Zadravec, aka Sweet Mery, has defended the organisers, and claimed she was declared the winner of the tournament.

In a post on Twitter, Zadravec announced she was leaving the competition, while also posting pictures from inside the house hosting the event – which has the appearance of a low-budget ‘Big Brother’ house.

Zadravec is seen sitting on her down, a few feet away from three male performers, while another group are standing below a sign advertising the event. One person is seen, inexplicably, dressed in a haz-mat suit.

It is understood that the competition was pioneered by Dragan Bratic, who owns a number of strip clubs in the Jönköping area of Sweden, and who is understood to have set up the event to be live streamed over the internet to paying viewers. 

Participants in the championship were going to be assessed across 16 categories in ’bouts’ to be held over six weeks.

These included their skills in seduction and massage, their proficiency in sex acts, the appearance of their sexual organs, how many times they can orgasm, and their ‘artistry’ and ‘creativity’ in creating a seductive pose.

Bouts were reportedly set to last between 45 minutes to an hour for each category.

According to The Daily Star, female entrants were set to earn themselves £690 for each day they stayed in the venue, while men would earn £345-a-day.

The publication say the winner was promised £860,000.

However, some of the participants say there were issues from the start.

The bizarre tournament was set to see a total of 20 contestants compete in a variety or erotically charged activities in Sweden, but it has ended in chaos

They said there was no hot water, no adequate sleeping arrangements, and that the hygiene was poor. They accused the organisers of not carrying out checks for sexually transmitted diseases, and one video appeared to show Bratic lashing out at the Ukrainian competitor when she tried to live stream their conversation.

Selva Lapiedra, Spain’s representative, described the organisation of the event as ‘chaos,’ telling Spanish publication El Plural that it descended into a ‘horror film.’ 

She also said that the website hosting the live streams was attacked by hackers.

‘Every day they attacked the website a lot , the cameras were caught , the page was not working,’ she said, adding: ‘The activities were not organised, the judges who should have been there were not … In short, there was zero organisation.’

However, speaking to Croatian daily newspaper Jutarnji list, Zadravec defended Bratic and the Swedish Sex Federation over the event.

She said that Bratic told her that based on the number of points she had accumulated during the tournament, she was the winner of the competition, and that this would soon be declared on the organisation’s website. She also said her fee was paid every day she ‘spent in the house,’ and that her travel was also paid for. 

Zadravec hit out at claims by other competitors that hot water was not available in the venue, saying that while the water heater broke down in one room, it was fixed the following day, and that hot water was available in other rooms.

The adult film star, who has more than 60,000 followers on Twitter and almost 35,000 on Instagram – and makes much of her living though OnlyFans – said the ‘project’ was a big opportunity for her and her fellow competitors.

‘This is a very big project and the organiser wanted to make all of us big, famous, world names and give us the opportunity to make a very good profit, so everyone should be grateful for that because the whole world wrote about it and everyone benefited from the advertisement from that project,’ she said.

Zadravec distanced herself from the criticism being made by other participants, and accusing them of not telling the truth about what unfolded. ‘People from the porn industry are all connected, so it is very important to tell the truth,’ she said. 

‘I am not a person who wants problems from this because we all had the opportunity to choose ourselves, so there is no need to put pressure on the organiser after everything. As for my experience, it was great and I would like it to happen again one day because something like this is not little thing,’ she told Jutarnji.

She accused the other competitors that walked out of ‘taking revenge’ on the organisers and contradicted their claims that they were not paid.

‘We agreed on everything; what the fee would be, the method of payment and other details, I received a detailed contract which I signed,’ she said.

‘Dragan asked all the competitors to take with them some prop that represents the country we are fighting for, to be at the airport already record an advertising video for each individual,’ Zadravec added.

She said she got off the plane wearing a ‘Croatian T-shirt’.

It was reported earlier this month that a British representative — OnlyFans model Barbie Sins — had pulled out of the event citing ‘health complications’.

The remaining 19 competitors hail from across the continent, including Spain, Italy, France, Ukraine, Russia, Finland, Croatia.

Lara Lee was another Brit who the Star said was set to fly out to Sweden on Monday, possibly as a replacement for Barbie Sins – but she pulled out at the last minute.

‘I learnt that people had been leaving over claims they weren’t getting paid so I decided to swerve it,’ she told the Daily Star.

‘It’s sad because it was a great idea but it sounds like it’s been so badly organised and has ended up a bit of a shambles.’

Ukraine’s entrant Talia Mint posted a video from the house before she left, saying that she and the other performers had been excited to be part of the ‘project’.

However, the 24-year-old uploaded a video to her social media which appeared to show Bratic trying to grab her phone as she left the house.

She claimed in the clip that one competitor had been allowed to enter the competition without being tested for HIV.

‘He refuses to pay me for my time and my work and now you have all the information about this project, I want to get compensation,’ she said. 

She later said in a video that the police were called, but could not enter the property as they did not have a warrant. Now, Mint claims she is taking legal action against Bratic and the The Swedish Sex Federation.

It is believed that the organiser’s financial issues came about because not enough people were paying to watch the live-streams of the event.

Other performers have also confirmed they have left the event, with the official representative group for sex workers from the Balkan region announcing the decision on Twitter on Friday, citing ‘insurmountable issues’.

‘The cameras were non-operational during the first two days of the competition, which hindered the proper execution and documentation of the event,’ Dobra Druzba (Good Friendship) said in a thread on Twitter.

‘We were constantly faced with overloading issues, making it challenging for us to perform effectively. The absence of representatives from the Swedish Sex Federation at the event greatly disappointed us. Also, there was no security personnel present, responsible for ensuring our safety and health.’

According to a post on Twitter from the Swedish Sex Federation, contestants were disqualified for a number of reasons.

It listed these as: ‘Disobeying the rules of the competition and Swedish Sex Federation, Damaging reputation of the Swedish Sex Federation, disrespecting organisation and representatives of the organisation, bringing and consuming illegal psychoactive substances, bringing and consuming alcohol, request for payments without invoices witch is against the Swedish law, and talking about fees during live stream broadcast.’

Dobra Druzba hit back at claims from the organisers that the contestants acted unprofessionally. It released a video recorded by a number of the competitors airing their grievances over the event.

‘Alcohol was provided by the Swedish Sex Federation and we have written correspondence confirming that there was a so-called ‘party night’ included in the competition program,’ the competitors said.

In a statement published by The Daily Star, the Swedish Sex Federation admitted that the situation was ‘not good’ and hit out at the contestants.

‘They all enjoyed all those popularity and took advantage of our organisation to promote themselves and now they ask for something that is not possible to fulfil.

‘We are really devastated with the current situation and we do not have any idea how this will end,’ the statement sad.

Organiser Bratic told the publication that the performers were not invited as porn actors, but as ‘contestants in the First European Sex Championship’ and accused them of not acting like professional athletes.

The competition is being held at an undisclosed location (pictured) in Gothenburg in south western Sweden. A group representing some of the performers said there was no running hot water which 'impeded basic hygiene,' and that the sleeping quarters were 'unsuitable as they did not allow for rest due to the early dawn in Sweden and the lack of blinds or roller shutters'

‘They ignored the rules of the competition and the Swedish Sex Federation and behaved unprofessionally and to the detriment of the federation,’ he said.

‘They even brought alcohol to the house and they did not act like sportsmen at all. All contestants are therefore disqualified from the competition.’

He bemoaned to The Star that none brought flags of their countries (except for Croatia), and that his organisation had to purchase them.

MailOnline has reached out to the Swedish Sex Federation for comment, but is yet to receive a response as of 10am GMT, June 19.
