A Swedish councillor wants his residents to get down and dirty. Per-Erik Muskos, the 42-year-old city councillor of Övertorneå, says sex is good and will help the area's declining population.
“This means that childbirth should be encouraged,” he explains. “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.”
It turns out Swedes already have a "fitness" hour, so Muskos points out no more time needs to be taken out of the work day. Oh, and Muskos doesn't discriminate. He thinks both single people and those in relationships to have the right to use the fitness hour this way.
