A Swedish politician wants people to get paid for having sex on their lunch break

Sweden’s been in the news a bit lately, ever since President Trump pretended that there were immigrants terrorizing their country. The Swedes took it in stride and had a sense of humor about it, which seems to be how they roll. This week, a Swedish politician suggested that they allow civil servants to have sex on their lunch break, and some people are flipping out.

Honestly, lunch break sex is one of the best kinds of sex, but some Swedish citizens don’t feel like they should have to know that their tax payer dollars are funding a little mid-day romp. You can sort of see where they’re coming from, we suppose.

Politicians and government workers are probably already having sex on their lunch break — why should they make it official?

There’s actual science behind the idea. Per-Erik Muskos, a city council member in Övertorneå, a town on the river bordering Finland, says that there are studies that say a one-hour break to go home and have sex is healthy. Which, by the way, is absolutely true. It relieves stress and keeps you glowing — an active sex life, if you want to have one, is usually good for your soul. As if that weren’t enough, Muskos says it’s also just good the country. “It’s about having better relationships,” he said. And if people are happy, they might not mind the drudgery of their jobs. Or be happier with their spouses and their families.

Hey, the dude has a point.
