A Swedish politician must be looking for an excuse to massage some meatballs and volvos at the office because he's proposing paid hour-long sex breaks for workers.
Yup, a bone break.
Per-Erik Muskos, a local council member for Övertorneå in northern Sweden, thinks couples in the country don't get enough quality time together.
The 42-year-old cites the health benefits of sex as the primary reason for the paid break. Studies suggest sex can:
- Boost your memory
- Improve your immunity
- Lower blood pressure
As if the Swedes don't already enjoy all kinds of work benefits. They get 480 days of paid parental leave (which partners can share), and two or three coffee breaks a day.
According to the OECD Better Life Index, only 1 percent of the people there work overtime, and they often rank as being the happiest people in the world.
Sweden is turning a blind eye to the flood of refugees coming in, and the people there are in for a rude awakening when they realize their way of life doesn't jive with the incoming crowd's.
Good luck, Sweden.
