Sex At Work Should Be A Right For All Say Czech Socialists

The Czech Social Democratic party is advertising for the upcoming European elections using sex at work. According to advert by the party of Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka, sex at work is a fine thing and nothing to be frowned upon, but it is a pleasure that many unemployed people in the country are unable to enjoy - because they do not have jobs. The promotional spot shows a blonde woman who is clearly impatiently waiting in her office for a break. As soon as that arrives, she goes to a room nearby. There is then an off-camera voice that comes up with the message: "Everybody who wants to should be able to enjoy something a bit different during the break at work." It then shows in silhouette how in the adjoining room the blonde woman and her lover have sex. The message then continues: "It is a shame that there are half a million people that don't have jobs." The promotion is supposed to reflect the fact that eight percent of Czech citizens are without a job. The promotion is meant to be a rallying call for supporters of the Czech Social Democratic Party (CSSD). Lukas Kaucky, who was the head of the CSSD-youth organisation that organised the advertising spot said it had had a fantastic response and had been a huge success. He said: "We felt that the message was perfect for the internet but decided in the end not to take it to television because there were also critics." Sobotka who has been Prime Minister of the Czech Republic since 2014 and chairman of the Czech Social Democratic Party (CSSD) since 2011 also gave his personal support to the promotional video saying it was a great idea and adding: "I don't think one needs to be over necessarily prudish. The spot brings home the reality of unemployment."
