Madrid: Couples having less sex has become a major concern for people as well as governments all over the globe with experts asking French couples to have more sex for overall well being and Japan reporting half of its married couples having sex less than once in a month.

As Swedish politicians are calling for a sex break to couples from work everyday for a better personal life, Spain has appointed a ‘Sex Tsar’ to address the issue of falling birth rate as opposed to a rising death rate that is jeopardising the population in the country.

The role of this official will be to draft a national strategy for solving imbalances and the reason for the drop in birth rate seems to be people being too exhausted after a day at work and working late nights as well as long hours is cited as a reason for people having less sex.

A study last year suggested that millennials are having much less sex as compared to the generations before them, and many governments are concerned about the falling birth rates that could have an impact on economic imbalance and the welfare state.
