Hang on, there's something wrong here, now what could it be?

Hmm, women, time off work, for sex - Aha! got it!
Who are they going to have sex with? Each other? That doesn't tend to

I can imagine some red-faced Russian beaurocrat admitting that he forgot
about giving the men time off too.

(or don't the men in Russia work?)
