THE SUN SETS FAST IF NOTHIN'S GOIN' ON IN THE DARK:

Japan workers told to go home and procreate: The aim is to allow working mothers and fathers to spend more time with their children and find the time and energy to have more sex (Justin McCurry, 11/27/08, guardian.co.uk)

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 the country's latest attempt to avert demographic disaster.

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

A recent 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 for sex, while others said they found it boring.
