Constant work and approximately zero play is not how humans were meant to spend their time. So how does a paid fuck break sound? By "paid," I mean everyday people will receive their usual compensation from work while having sex with their respective partners. By "fuck break," I mean people would literally be allowed to return home for 60 consecutive minutes, at least three of which would be spent fucking.

A council member in Övertorneå in northern Sweden proposed exactly that earlier this week, Quartzreported Wednesday. Per-Erik Muskos, referencing "studies" on the topic, said sex was healthy and expressed concern for those partners without ample time for the having of the sex. According to Muskos, the most logical time of day for this act to occur is smack dab in the middle of working hours.

"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," Per-Erik wrote in his proposal, according to Swedish press.

Surprising no one, Sweden is already ranked by National Geographic as one of the happiest spots on this increasingly doomed planet of ours. "A sense of community is strengthened through the tradition known as fika, loosely translated into 'break time,' when locals meet over coffee to catch up, discuss news, and eat pastries," Nat Geo wrote in their 2016 ranking.
