Alibaba Boss Urges Daily Sex For Staff Despite 12Hr Day

The Chinese Alibaba Group founder who is one of the world’s richest men has told his workforce that they should have sex six days a week despite working 12 hour shifts. 

According to local media, Alibaba and other Chinese companies have come under fire this year for promoting a ‘9-9-6’ work schedule where employees are expected to work from 9am to 9pm, six days a week.

During Alibaba’s recent ‘Ali Day’ annual celebration, executive chair Jack Ma praised employees who got married over the past year.

Presiding over the event, Ma – who is one of China’s richest men with an estimated fortune of 30 billion GBP – defended the ‘9-9-6’ principle while telling couples that they should adopt a ‘6-6-9’ philosophy at home.

He said: “What is 6-6-9? Six days, six times with ‘longer’ being the key.”

Reports said that Ma was using a pun on the Chinese pronunciation of the number nine to suggest that married couples should be making ‘long’ passionate love six times a week around their incredible work schedule.

Alibaba was so proud of Ma’s double entendre that the company posted the quote on its official social media page complete with a winking emoji.

During the rest of his speech, Ma told his employees to have more babies, claiming that children are a better investment than property.

He said: “Marriage is not for the purpose of accumulating wealth, not for buying a house, not for buying a car, but for having a baby together.

“Only the child is the real thing. Have more children!”

Ma’s message follows the Chinese government’s decision to end the one-child per family policy in 2016 after fears that a demographic crisis is looming.

However, netizens were unimpressed with Ma’s intrusive suggestion. One ‘Weibo’ user said: “Finish work at 9pm, make it home by 10.30pm, who has the energy?!”
