Earlier this year a voting found that a surprising number of people masturbate at work, with throughout 40 per cent admitting to popping to the bathroom to take a much-needed separation from their desks.
Now workers in a Swedish town, which is already skilled in for its six-hour days and office fika breaks, could soon be advanced a new way to burn off some steam.
In the latest bonkers craze to help support productivity, Swedes could be given a one-hour paid break from turn out to go home and have sex with their partners, thanks to a councillor’s kinky new proposal aimed at improving people’s relationships.
Though the original recommendation of Per-Erik Muskos, a 42-year-old city councillor for the town of Övertorneå, was met by snickering in the Consistory, the councilman sees no reason his bill should not pass.
He implied: «There are studies that indicate the health benefits of sex.
“I believe sex is a in short supply commodity in many long-lasting relationships. Everyday life is stressful and there are striplings at home.
“This could be an opportunity to enjoy some privacy.”
Muskos muse ons the measure would be positive for employees, especially for parents with stingy children because they could take advantage of school hours to apportionment moments of intimacy.
And along with enjoying some stress-relief during spur hours, Mr Muskos also claims his proposal will help into the bargain Sweden’s lagging birth rates — while also encouraging truncheon to work harder while at their desks.
He added: «We must brace the increase in birth rates.
“Since sex is a great way to exercise with reliable effects on well-being, the town could encourage employees to enjoy some charitable time to go home and have sexual relations.”
But he admitted there was no way to confirm that employees do not use their hour for other purposes than disbursing time with their partners or spouses, adding: “You can’t guarantee that a working man doesn’t go out for a walk instead.”
Yet although Swedish people have a name of being liberal when it comes to sex, it appears that the reality is not as textile.
A survey carried out by the newspaper Aftonbladet indicated that couples are now take 24 per cent less sex than they were in 1996, something that hassles the Minister of Health Gabriel Wikström.
The 32-year-old, who confessed being solved with his sex life, shot to social media fame when a Cheep user asked him to ban «risky practices» after 10pm because of the noise his neighbours were making while secure sex.
He said: «That sounds great for them. It is good for their well-being and also for every Tom health”.
The response from the young Swedish minister went viral.
After the Finns and the French, Swedish full-time workers worked the least in Europe with only 1,685 hours on typical in 2015, according to a study by economic research institute Coe-Rexecode.
Britons squeeze in an average of 1,900 hours and Germans 1,847 hours in 2015.
