A politician in Sweden thinks that sex is good. So good, that workers should get a hour "sex break" during the day.

"There are studies that show sex is healthy," Per-Erik Muskos, a 42-year-old city councillor, told AFP after presenting the motion to the council on Monday (20 February).

He also said that this is about having healthier relationships. One issue that the area has encountered is low birth rates. He thinks this would also help with that.

"This means that childbirth should be encouraged," his motion states, as reported by Swedish newspaper Kuriren. "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."

Of course, Muskos did admit that there is no way of making sure that employees are using their "sex break" for it's intended purpose. But seriously, who wouldn't?
