Following Belgium's long standing failure to form a coalition government, Senator Temmerman (ironically a gynaecologist to trade) has taking the unusual step of urging "spouses of all politicians to desist from sex until an agreement is reached".

Despite the extreme nature of such a proposal, there is a precedent for this form of intrusive measure having some success. In 2009, a similar ban was only in place for a week in Kenya before a government was formed.

Not surprisingly, the scenario has been like manna from heaven for a number of Belgian tabloids.

Banner headlines include :


"No Erections Until Elections"

"Turn Your Back On Your Partner, Not Your Country"

"Sleep With Your Enemy Then Sleep With Your Spouse"

"Cooperation, Not Copulation"

"Unite Then Unite"

"Fusion of Minds Before Bodies"

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
