Less sex becoming a ‘political problem’ for Sweden

Stockholm–A dip in the sex drive of couples in Sweden which made headlines in media recently will become a major ‘political problem’ if not addressed immediately, the government has said.

In a bid to know why the nation’s sex drive seems to be falling, the government has initiated a major study into the sex lives of its citizens and it is due to be completed in 2019.

“It is important to find out how much less sex Swedes are having, and what is the reason,” Gabriel Wikstrom, Sweden’s Public Health Minister, was quoted as saying to Dagens Nyheter, the country’s national daily.

According to Wikstrom, it has been 20 years since the last in-depth study of the sex habits of the Scandinavian country and it is time for another survey.

“If stress and other health issues are affecting Swedes’ sex lives, then that makes it a political problem,” Wikstrom added.

The last study, conducted in 1996 and published in 2000, showed that male Swedes have had an average of 7.1 partners and females 4.6.

The difference is mostly explained by the two genders using different criteria of who counts as a sexual partner, thelocal.se reported on Monday.

Sexual health policy should be guided not just by the problems but also by the pleasurable aspects of sex, Wikstrom noted.

“Sex is a political matter as well. We often discuss sex in negative terms, like, for example, we relate it to rape, we relate it to sexual abuse, but not to the positive thing that sex really is,” Wikstrom said.

Sound recordist-turned-singer Aamir Shaikh has collaborated with popular singer Mamta Sharma for a “Lahori Kabab”.

“This is a peppy number, a party song you can play everywhere and there is no vulgarity in the song. Mamta ji has sung it beautifully,” Aamir told IANS.

Aamir has previously worked as a sound mixer-recordist in popular films like “Bodyguard”, “Wanted”, “Apne”, “Namastey London”, “Dasavathaaram” and with popular music composers such as Himesh Reshammiya, Sajid-Wajid and Ismail Durbar. His cover versions for songs such as “Suno Na Sangemarmar”, “Baton Ko Teri”, “Jeena Jeena”, and “Tumhe Banane Ka Junoon” have also been popular.

He has also sung his own songs such as “Tennu Milgaya Sath”, “Astaghfirullah Rabbi”, “100% Love”, “Guzare Hai Jo Tere Sang”, “Teri Yaadein”, “Tribute to Abdul Kalam”, “Happy New Year” among others. Mamta, who is popular for her item numbers such as “Munni Badnaam” and “Fevicol Se” among others, said: “It was a big surprise that Aamir is singing, because he is a fabulous sound engineer and a very good recordist.

 

A singer receives big support when he is there, a song which takes two hours in any studio will be ready in half an hour in Aamir’s studio. And he has also sung of that level. It’s amazing how well he has matched up to my voice, because my scale turns out to be too high for male singers.”
