A local councillor in Sweden has suggested that a one-hour paid break should be given to employees to go home from work to have sex with their partners. The proposal he said is aimed at improving people’s personal relationships.
The 42-year-old city councillor said that studies suggest that sex is healthy and since couples are not spending enough time with each other in today’s society, this step might ensure that they have better relationships.
However, he also noted that there was no way to verify that employees do not use this hour allotted to them for any other purposes rather than spending it with their partners or spouses. But Muskos added that the employers will need to trust their employees.
He also added that he does not see any reason why the proposal will not pass.
Swedish full-time employees worked the least in Europe with only 1,685 hours on average in 2015, according to a study by economic research institute Coe-Rexecode.
Brits worked an average of 1,900 hours and Germans 1,847 hours in 2015.
Muskos has enumerated that his proposal is beneficial for people as more sex has numerous physical and mental health benefits.Even science proves that more sex lowers blood pressure, improves your sleep, reduces anxiety and promotes mental health.
Amused by the proposal? The suggestion has sure given Twitter a top of discussion.
