Sept. 12 – A day of intercourse in Russia

You can get off work for half a day if you pledge to have sex with your partner…and if you happen to give birth on June 12 (Russia’s national day) you could win a car or other prizes. It’s only for a region of Russia and not the entire country, but the idea is amusing, as it’s primary goal is to help boost the country’s dwindling population (and it seems to be working, at least for the particular region). A bit of a perverse way to win money, but I suppose there are worse things you could be doing than getting pregnant while in a relationship.

More on this strange story here.
