Feb 24, 2017: While some companies embrace standing desks and free snacks, one Swedish town’s politician is hoping to give workers the greatest perk of all: the freedom to bone on the clock.
The proposal comes from Per-Erik Muskos, a council member for Övertorneå. It requires companies to give workers an hour paid break to go home and give their partners the business.
"There are studies that show sex is healthy," Muskos said, according to a Swedish publication.
Of course, "you can’t guarantee that a worker doesn’t go out for a walk instead," he added, which is a very good point.
Maybe companies can send workers home with some sexy Swedish stuff to ensure an acceptable level of copulation: easily breakable furniture, pickled herring, and, of course, Eagle-Eye Cherry’s 1997 pop-rock sensation "Save Tonight."
All we know is that Sweden is looking more attractive by the minute. Their workers get a ton of parental leave and spend less time in the office. Now it looks like at least some of them could get paid to get busy.
