The time when we used to go outside for a smoke break has ended in most workplaces. Nowadays, people are looking for other ways to unwind during their long workday, and that one-hour lunch break is not always enough.
Companies have begun experimenting with different solutions to create a healthier and more flexible workday. However, one company seems to have taken the idea of a more enjoyable working life to a new level since they now offer masturbation pods.
The Masturbation Pods Will Help Employees Relax During The Workday
The fact that we get a "happy chemical" rushing through our brains after taking the time to finish a self-pleasuring session is well-known. The company Stripchat has concluded that it will also make us more productive.
They have therefore constructed custom-built masturbation pods in their office that the employees can utilize during a 30-minutes break.
Stripchat is an adult website and social network with 200 employees. Their new idea has been implemented in their Cyprus office, where four pods can be found.
How do these pods work, you might ask. Well, the company has ensured you will get the best experience possible by installing an Oculus Quest VR headset and a 4k LED screen in each pod for enjoying adult films.
The pods are also equipped with lotion, lube, and tissues.
The Goal Is To Relieve Work Stress
"We want our employees to feel more relaxed at work," the company stated.
Long work days can make it hard to stay focused, and it is easy to build up your stress levels. With the help of the masturbation pods, the company hopes for more focused employees.
"[We aim to] provide current and attract new employees with a safe, comfortable space to rub one out," Stripchat said.
They are encouraging other companies to follow in their footsteps by offering to lease out the pods for $50,000 for six months. The company that accepts the offer will also get a VIP subscription to Stripchat's platform.
This Has Been Tried Before
Stripchat is not the only company that has decided to offer masturbation breaks for their employees.
The owner of the adult entertainment company Erika Lust Films noticed that her employees seemed unnerved and agitated, most likely due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
Since their behaviors negatively affected the work, the owner decided to introduce a masturbating station.
"With the pandemic and the huge shift in how we live our lives, I began to notice that my employees had become somewhat agitated and were performing with less energy than before," she said. "So, knowing that there's only one thing that will make everyone feel good, I've set up a private masturbation station for them to enjoy."
The employees appreciated this new opportunity and noticed that the company cared for them and wanted them to feel better.
"Picture this: a team of happy employees with their creative juices flowing and being productive because they've had some time scheduled to make themselves feel good," the head of communications Cat stated.
"A masturbation break at work can result in more focus from your employees, less aggression, more productivity, and better teamwork."
Understandably, the self-pleasing break is not a good idea for many workplaces. However, these forward-striving companies bring the importance of having a healthy and happy work life into the spotlight.
Companies can take many less extreme measures to ensure employees experience a good balance between work and relaxation.
