And if that wasn't unlikely enough, participants said they may have found a pleasurable way to boost the drooping world economy.
Healthy sex lives make happy workers, who will in turn create a more robust economy, said Emil Ng, sex therapist and founder of the Asian Federation of Sexology.

Help the global economy, have sex ;)

Ha, I'll vote for an official 'Sex Day' holiday. How about a Sex Day parade? I can imagine the floats already and the large, blow up figures floating high above the street......

Ok, I've said too much, sorry.

I'd be tempted to vote for him if he made a "national sex day" holiday....

Simple solution: Legalize prostitution.

Nah, that would only cause more problems - then you'd have to have National Prostitutes Day (instead of National Secretaries Day, etc) - it'd be a mess.

I can just see the Shack and Mack ad campaign.

Red Flowers for your red light girl....

ha, and then we'd all burn in hell! ;)

That would be taking things too far - chaos would ensue, worlds would collide, dogs and cats would be sleeping together.....then you'd wake up.

About this legalizing prostitution thing...
How is it possible that prostitution is completely illegal in most countries, and yet being in a porn movie is completely LEGAL?! I mean, a porn actor/actress is having sex with strangers for money, right? How does that make it different from prostitution? And if you say it's because it's for a film, well then can any John Doe go up to a prostitute and say "hey, I'm the director of this porn movie starring myself, I'll pay you $$ to be my co-star"

I've asked around and no one seems to know what legal loophole makes this possible. Anyone?

BTW, I'm happily engaged to be married, so It's not that I want some nookie on the side;) I'm just curious about how conservatives can tolerate pornography as freedom of speech, but not prostitution. Go figure.:rolleyes:

I feel completely unproductive. :(

But, hey, I'm at work, and if I were productive here, I would get fired. :)

On a different note, too bad that, once threads have been dead for a certain time (2.5 years at most), they can no longer be brought back to life... it freaks me out. ;)

I'd say that's being very productive. I mean, look at that multi-tasking ability! Work it!

Kidding, of course! ;)

Apparently threads about sex boosting productivity do not, by themselves, do anything except reduce it (productivity, that is).

I have no idea why this is the case, but it's just one more reason to always video tape your sexcapades :p
