For Stressed-Out Finns, Experts Say, Sex Is Best Remedy

From Reuters

Health officials are calling for government-organized sex holidays as a cure for citizens worn down by the stress of modern life.

"People suffering from stress should be given the opportunity of having sex holidays, when they would be able to forget their worries and concentrate on recuperating in an erotic atmosphere," according to a discussion paper produced by a Health Ministry working party.

"Lack of free time and various social obligations are the main impediments to a satisfying sex life," the paper argued.

The experts argued that products should be developed to create an erotic and sexually stimulating atmosphere--but they said it would be up to each stressed-out patient to provide his or her own sex partner.

The idea will be considered next month by the heads of Finland's state-financed national health service, a ministry spokesman said Wednesday.
