Sweden isn't just good at helping parents care for their babies, as demonstrated by its generous parental-leave policies. A local Swedish official also wants to help people create those babies.

Per-Erik Muskos, a councilman from the small town of Övertorneå, has announced plans to give the municipality's 550 employees paid time off to have sex.

“There are studies that show sex is healthy,” Muskos explaied, adding that couples in Sweden weren't spending enough time together. “It's about having better relationships.”

As in many developed countries, Sweden's fertility rate has been gradually falling for the past several decades. In 1960, according to World Bank data, Swedish women had an average of 2.2 children – a rate scholars call “replacement fertility” as it tends to keep the population steady. But by 2014 the rate had fallen to 1.9 children per woman.
