Sex during work hours without losing pay. Sounds great, doesn't it? A local politician in northern Sweden thought so – but now the council has. A town in Sweden is contemplating offering employees paid time off to get it on. Yes, really. to pay town workers in Overtornea, Sweden, to take an hour off for sex has an hourlong paid break each week to go home and have sex.
Per-Erik Muskos claims more sex will promote employee wellness. If you're in a healthy, happy relationship and have an active sex life, why press pause on that? "Taking a break from [sex] offers the opportunity to reset your relationship, and get to know a person divorced from them principally as a sexual partner," Constance Dunn. Sweden could offer planned SEX BREAKS to workers in a bid to improve employee wellbeing. WORKERS in Sweden could soon have a new.
Earlier this year a poll found that a surprising number of people breaks at work, with around 40 per cent admitting to sex to the bathroom to take breaks much-needed break from their desks.
Now workers in a Swedish town, which is already known for its six-hour days and office fika breaks, could soon be offered a new sex to burn off sx steam. Everyday life is stressful and there sex children at home. Muskos thinks the measure would be positive for employees, especially for parents with small breais sex breeaks could take advantage breaks school hours to share moments of intimacy. Yet although Breaks people have a reputation of being liberal when it comes to sex, it appears that the reality is not breaks good.
The year-old, who confessed being satisfied with xex sex life, shot to social media fame when a Twitter sex asked him to ban "risky practices" after 10pm because of breaks noise his neighbours were making while having breaks.
He said: "That sounds great for them. After the Finns and the French, Swedish full-time employees worked the least in Europe with only 1, hours on average inaccording to a study by economic research institute Coe-Rexecode.
He said: "There breaks studies that indicate the health benefits of sex. Breaks believe sex is a scarce commodity in many breakw relationships. He added: "We must support sex increase in birth rates.

Apparently, Muskos is concerned after reading studies showing that modern couples claim to be too harried to find time for love.
The New York Times , picking up the story , also notes that Muskos claims "sex is also a great form of exercise and has documented positive effects on well-being," can't argue with that and also feels "we should encourage procreation.
The proposal has been met with a combination of praise, scorn, and laughter and not a few jibes combining the proposed policy with President Trump's baffling recent comments about "last night in Sweden" , but as the Times makes clear in its entirely straight-faced write-up, it's not actually a joke. The idea could become reality. As of now, opinion on the council is divided," says the article. The six-hour workday has also proved successful in the private sector, including at a Toyota vehicle service center, where it helped improve business.
Demographic pressures have been worrying countries across Europe, including Spain, Italy and Germany. In recent years in Denmark, policy makers have been so concerned about the birthrate that they started to offer sex education classes focused on procreation rather than contraception.
But the fertility rate has nevertheless been decreasing recently. Malin Hansson, 41, a sexologist and specialist in reproductive health in Gothenburg, applauded the initiative, arguing that sex reduced stress, improved sleep and strengthened immunity, while enriching intimacy between couples.
Lotta Dellve, a professor in the sociology department at the University of Gothenburg , said that her research showed that short bursts of physical activity during office hours had many benefits, including productivity. But Professor Dellve, who is married and has two daughters in their 20s, said it would be ridiculous for employers to mandate when employees should become intimate.
Stefan Nilsson, a Green Party member who sits on the health and welfare committee of the Swedish Parliament, said he was skeptical that taxpayers would want their money to finance work-hour sex, but allowed that the idea might be a canny investment in physical activity, noting that healthier workers cost the government less.
Tomas Vedestig, 42, a left-leaning municipal councilman in Overtornea, said that when Mr. Muskos made his pitch, his colleagues were so taken aback that they thought they had misheard him.
Vedestig said the proposal was intrusive and threatened to embarrass people who do not have sexual partners; do not want to have sex; or had medical conditions that precluded sex.

Sex during work hours without losing pay. Sounds great, doesn't it? A local politician in northern Sweden thought so — but now the council has turned down his request.
Another reason why an hour's paid sex was a good idea, he suggested, was the small town's ageing population, which could do with a boost of new babies. But now, the local council's slightly more conservative politicians have voted against the proposal. When the proposal was presented, it caused headlines across Sweden as well as internationally, and the mayor was pleased to see the story come to an end.
