Spain appoints a Minister of Sex whose Primary Duty is to Help Battle the Decline in Population

The Spanish Government has appointed a Minister of Sex in order to boost the nation’s declining population.

Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy confirmed Edelmira Barreira as the country’s top sex official.

With this move, the government hopes to boost Spain’s falling birth rate, which is one of the lowest in the developed world.

Spain in recent years has recorded declining birth rates which, according to reports, places it among developing countries with the lowest index.

Last year, for the first time, Spain’s deaths outnumbered its births. According to experts, they claim the reasons for the decline in births are: working long hours, eating late at night, and going to bed after midnight. In addition, youth unemployment rose to 48% in 2015, second only to Greece in Europe.

Spain’s education ministry said the declining birth-rate “aggravates other economic imbalances and generates important impacts in the Welfare State,” according to the Spanish newspaper ABC.

Barreira will be tasked with creating a national strategy to rectify the situation.

      feminist wahala is destroying humanity gradually,
      so many men are not sure of women’s true feelings for them because when you see all this women’s right bla bla everywhere,
      You only wanna fuck and look at them from a distance, you don’t wanna offend them, because when they complain men always feel guilty and we ask ourselves if we’re the really the cause of their problems.
      not saying guys don’t want equality, but we want the true equality, not the equality that is defined by women, because all they have been promoting is superiority and not equality, Everything must favor them,
      women take advantage of guys feelings for them and the desire for having a family of their own,
      but so many are breaking that system and seeing no reason to live a responsible life any more.

    This is foolish. But at least the experts have identified the reasons if only those in charge will listen to them.

    You want more births, make it easier for mothers and families to have the children and care for them. Have family planning and include social amenities like affordable daycare and parental leave from work. And create jobs or healthy environments for businesses to create jobs

      You are so right Tunmi. As if having more sex will directly lead to more babies. I bet they are having more sex already than yons ago but, when you think of the difficulties involved in raising kids, nobody go tell you. You borrow sense practice safe sex.

      Its easy to write, harder to implement. Businesses are increasingly outsourcing and turning to automation precisely because of the higher costs you mention.

      In my opinion, world needs to realise that lower populations isn’t in fact a bad thing. Turn the emptying spaces by to nature.

      Its not like humans haven’t experienced population decrease before.

      It is an issue when you have programs like social security and you need younger people working to pay into those systems. I only know of the US’s case. But with all their rhetoric on illegal immigrants, illegal immigrants are paying into social security and helping to keep it afloat

    This won’t work.

    Remove the entire ministry and replace them with Northerners …from Nigeria.

    Watch your population multiply.

    When u support same sex unions, working for exaggerratingly long hours leading people to postpone parenthood in the name of having a very solid career only to realise that pikin ain’t coming anymore despite numerous IVFS, what do you expect? You can’t cheat nature, boo. Give us visa, in 5 years time, those spaniards shall testify. We sabi procreate wella, esp our Nothern peeps.

    I think the main problem of some of these countries with regards to the decline in child birth are mainly due to their increasing liberalization and indirect promotion of same sex rights and practices. How would a population increase if an increasing no of your population is practicing same sex union?

      Gay people have always been there ugh ?. All of you who think it’s about homosexuality should marry these gay people and multiply with them, since you’re so sure it’s the law that makes them gay. In a hetersosexual and hypersexual world filled with heterosexual stuff everywhere, people are still gay, and you all STILL think it’s a choice ??
