The Swedish government is to launch a major study of the sex lives of its citizens after reports that love making is on the wane.

Recent surveys conducted by Swedish newspapers suggest Swedes are having less sex, health minister Gabriel Wikström wrote in an article according to The Local.

“It’s important to investigate whether that is the case and, if so, what the reason is,” Wikström wrote, and added:

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