A DANISH IT company decided that the best way to keep its employees happy was to sign up all its workers to internet p0rn sites.

LL Media had a look at all internet use in the company and decided that what most of its employees wanted to see were boobies or thingees.

Danish Broadcasting's DR Nordjylland reports that the company's director, Levi Nielsen, believes that access to p0rn is a natural fringe benefit for workers, like a free phone or a company car.

He said that more than 80 per cent of all hits on the Internet are on p0rn sites. And the company has spotted workers sneaking a peek at p0rn during work.

Nielsen realised that while visiting such sites when you are supposed to be coding was a bad thing, it represented a need his employees had, which if repressed would result in cranky behaviour.

So he decided to block the watching of porn sites during office hours and in return gave employees access to paid sites after the work was done.

Nielsen believes that for a cost of $5 a head per week (oooeeer) will make his staff more relaxed and more efficient on the "job". µ
