“Although many countries of the world are thriving in population, economics, GDP and other statistical indicators, Denmark is faced with a serious problem. Some call it the white plague, others associate it with lack of time and other priorities, but the Danes aren’t getting enough “love”, either way.
“In other words, if the people of Denmark don’t start having sex with each other, it’s going to evolve into a problem of literally existential proportions, and that’s not an understatement.
“Statistically speaking, the current birthrate of the country is 10 per 1,000 residents (2013), which represents the lowest rate in 27 years. What’s even more mind-boggling is the fact that Denmark is regularly named one of the happiest countries in the world.
“This cold, hard fact has left the Danes shocked that their country could eventually become extinct.
“That’s precisely the reason why Denmark is doing everything it can to encourage sex between couples. And seeing how politics can go a long way when it has to do with the right cause, the Danish politicians have set an example for every other country battling birthrate problems – a law was passed, stating that every Wednesday is specifically intended for sex and baby-making, which is something that promises to make Denmark even more popular than it already is.
“I really think that keeping our nation young and vital is the way forward. I’m not just saying this because I’m young and have yet to get a wife and start a family, but I really think that this law is a good thing” says, Magnus Larsen, 26, from Copenhagen.
His fellow countrywoman, Mathilde Knudsen, 32, from Alborg, says that “it was about time someone dealt with this worrying problem. Personally, I’m all for Black Friday and Crazy Monday, but Banging Wednesday was spot on. I couldn’t think of a better way to spend my Wednesdays, and I’m pretty sure my fiancé agrees…if you know what I mean.”
