Why not? Swedish town official suggests weekly paid hour for sex
An official in a Sweden town that has a decreasing population believes that sex is frequently in short supply.
Councilman Per-Erik Muskos of Overtornea town is proposing that municipal government workers take the time off each week to, as the Bible says, go forth and multiply — and still be paid while having that break too.
Muskos said that “sex is also a great form of exercise and has documented positive effects on well-being,” according to a New York Times report published online on February 23.
“We should encourage procreation. I believe that sex is often in short supply. Everyday life is stressful and the children are at home,” said. Muskos, who also said, “This could be an opportunity for couples to have their own time, only for each other.”
The proposal needs a majority vote of the council.
