THE CRUELTY IS UNIMAGINABLE: Swedish Workers Told To Have Sex On Their Own Time. “Finding the right work-life balance is always a challenge. But in Overtornea, Sweden, residents are going to have to have sex on their own time, just like everywhere else. The New York Times reports a 31-member town council on Monday voted down a local pol’s proposal to grant the municipality’s 550 workers ‘subsidized sex’—in other words, one hour of paid leave each workweek in which they could scurry home to get it on.
