Yes, you read that correctly.
A senior lecturer at Nottingham Trent University has gone on the record stating that, a mashing the spuds break would be "very effective at work" and a "great way to relieve tension and stress."
If you're unsure what we mean by mashing the spuds, let Rog explain and demonstrate for you:
And he's not the only dog barking up this tree. Another intellectual human being, psychologist and life coach Dr. Cliff Arnall agrees.
"I would expect a masturbation police to result in more focus, less aggression, higher productivity, and more smiling. Certainly taking a masurbation break for boredom or an escape would increase work focus."
He forgot to add one thing - more tissue boxes requested in the next stationery order.
Now the question you're all asking yourself - why in the name of fuck would lecturers and psychologists be talking about such a topic?
It comes off the back of a recent survey by Time Out New York that found 39% of male readers reported they mashed the spuds in the office, an 8% increase from a study conducted in 2012.
So the next time you think your workplace is full of wankers - you might just be right.
