Swedes’ droop­ing li­bido to be probed

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - NEWS -

STOCK­HOLM: The Swedish govern­ment is launch­ing a ma­jor study of the sex lives of the coun­try’s cit­i­zens af­ter re­ports love­mak­ing is on the wane.

Pub­lic Health Min­is­ter Gabriel Wik­strom notes that the last thor­ough study of Swedes’ sex habits was 20 years ago.

Since then, re­ports in tabloids have pointed to a de­crease in sex­ual ac­tiv­ity.

In an opin­ion piece in Da­gens Ny­heter yes­ter­day, Wik­strom wrote “it’s im­por­tant to in­ves­ti­gate whether that is the case and if so what the rea­son is”.

“If stress and other health is­sues are af­fect­ing Swedes’ sex lives,” he said, “that is also a po­lit­i­cal prob­lem.”

The Pub­lic Health Agency of Swe­den was tasked to carry out the study and pre­pare a re­port by 2019. – ANA-AP
