Danish Firm Unwraps New Benefit – Free Porn

May 28, 2004 (PLANSPONSOR.com) - A Danish company has introduced a novel, if somewhat unusual, employee benefit - free porn.

That’s right, LL Media, an information technology company inNordjylland, Denmark, says that after examining well-known trends in Internet and business traffic, the company determined it would make sense to offer all of its employees free subscriptions to Internet pornography, according to Aftenposten.

“We know that 80% of all hits on the Internet are on porn sites. And we can see that people also surf porn pages during work,” the company’s director, Levi Nielsen, told Danish Broadcasting’s DR Nordjylland, according to the report. Nielsen believes that access to porn is a natural fringe benefit, like a free phone or a company car.

Nielsen hopes that the expense of about $5 per head per week will make his staff more relaxed and more efficient on the job. If for no other reason than because the company does block access to porn pages…during office hours.
