Bathroom breaks, lunch breaks, cigarette/smoking breaks…These are all culturally accepted norms. Yet rubbing one out in the privacy of your own office is extremely frowned upon, even though evidence suggests that masturbation breaks might be exactly what men need at work.
According to a report published on The Edmonton Sun, experts claim that taking several-minute breaks to de-stress and ‘relieve tension’ could boost productivity and focus in the workplace, and in turn boost the overall performance of companies:
Dr. Cliff Arnall, a psychologist and life coach, agreed with that assessment.
“I would expect a masturbation policy to result in more focus, less aggression, higher productivity, and more smiling,” Dr. Arnall told Metro U.K. “Certainly taking a masturbation break for boredom or an escape would increase work focus.”
The topic of work masturbation breaks came up in the wake of a survey by Guyfi, described as a masturbation booth popup, that found 40% of workers in New York already take such breaks while clocked in.
Am I reading this correctly? A poll found that 40% of workers in NYC are already jerkin’ their gerkins at the office? I spent the last 9 years working in Manhattan before moving back to my ancestral homeland of ass backward Florida, am I seriously to believe that 4 in 10 of my male colleagues were jacking off in the bathrooms? That seems hard to believe.
