Swedish workers should be given paid “sex breaks” by their bosses, a local politician has suggested. A councillor in the north of the country has suggested workers should be given a one hour break paid for by their employer in order to go home and have sex.
The idea was proposed by councillor Per-Erik Muskos from the town of Övertorneå near Sweden’s border with Finland, where temperatures this week have reached below -10C.
Mr Muskos said: “There are studies that show sex is healthy. I believe sex is a scarce commodity in many long-lasting relationships.
