A politician in a small town in Sweden, Övertorneå, is toying with giving its workers paid sex breaks during the day.
Per-Erik Muskos, a 42-year-old city councillor, says that sex is healthy, and he’s right.
Having sex can have many health benefits.
Logan Levkoff, Ph.D., a sexologist, said:
“There’s a lot of positive health benefits [of an orgasm]. And the emotional [and] psychological benefits are even better.”
It can also help with your immune system and lower your blood pressure. It can even count as a form of exercise.
Sex can even help you sleep better as well. Sheenie Ambardar, MD, a psychiatrist in West Hollywood, said:
“After orgasm, the hormone prolactin is released, which is responsible for the feelings of relaxation and sleepiness.”
Also, the municipality is suffering from a low population, so this measure kills two birds with one stone.
“This means that childbirth should be encouraged. When sex is also an excellent form of exercise with documented positive effects on well-being, the municipality should kill two birds with one stone and encourage employees to use their fitness hour to go home and have sex with their partner.”
We should try this here in the states.
