I mean, what’s the difference between taking six 10-minute breaks to smoke a Marb Red or getting your pole smoked for an hour? Either way, you’ll be ready to tackle the rest of the day.
According to the Indy 100, a 42-year-old local council member for Övertorneå in northern Sweden thinks Swedes should be allowed to take a one-hour paid break to “go home and have sex with their partners.”
Per-Erik Muskos is our hero, and he’s using studies that show sex is healthy to back up his proposal. Muskos thinks that couples aren’t spending enough time together in “today’s busy society,” and he’s hoping his idea of a one-hour sex break can improve people’s relationships.
“It’s about having better relationships,” Muskos said.
According to the National Sleep Foundation, “one in every four married or cohabiting Americans say they’re so sleep deprived they’re too tired to have sex – and are often kept awake by financial worries.” Another study suggests people are working so much these days that they’re losing interest in coming home for a hump.
Muskos says he sees “no reason” why his proposal wouldn’t get passed, although he does acknowledge that there is really no way to make sure employees use the hour to plow their partners.
“You can’t guarantee that a worker doesn’t go out for a walk instead,” Muskos said, adding that employers needed to trust their employees.
If there is one fault to Muskos’s plan, we don’t see anywhere in his proposed legislation that would require employees to shower before returning to work. Otherwise, it’s nothing short of a brilliant idea.
