Leave Office....Go Home & Produce Babies!!

Today I was browsing UK paper Guardian, came across an interesting title “Go Home & Produce Babies!!
I started wondering what if it gets published in Pakistan for Pakistanis; I guess there won’t be any space left to breathe esp. in Karachi.
Anyways, it is for Japanese, article says, Japan’s workers are being urged to switch off their laptops, go home early and use what little energy they have left on procreation, in an attempt to avert demographic disaster.

The drive to persuade employers that their staff would be better off at home than staying late at the office comes amid warnings from health experts that many couples are simply too tired to have sex.

A survey of married couples under 50 found that more than a third had not had sex in the previous month. Many couples said they didn't have the energy. A study by Durex found that the average couple has sex 45 times a year, less than half the global average of 103 times.

Japan's birth rate of 1.34 is among the lowest in the world and falls well short of the 2.07 children needed to keep the population stable. If it persists, demographers say the population will drop to 95 million by 2050 from its 2006 peak of 127.7 million.

It is so true, even during my trip I came across many oldies all around…..let us see how Durex & Japanese government would induce couples to produce more & spend less time at work….

If nothing works, they should advertise in Pakistan .......(Pakistani Labor Required to Increase Birth Rate in Japan, Productive Person would Get Extra Bonuses ;-)

Hmm ya Durex are condoms :P Company is conducting sex survey habits in Japan....promoting sexual activity apart from over worked at times couple may get to use their products ;-)

Hmmm yup world is over populated but Japanese birth ratio is low, ageing population is alarming the future availability of labor force in Japan.
