Ah, monogamous sex is such hard work. At least in orgies you can take a break once in a while.
At least that's according to Russian President Vladimir Putin.
"Some fans say that group sex is better than one-on-one because, like in any collective work, you can skive off," Putin said in an interview on the state-run Russian Today news channel, the Telegraph reports.
There's no word yet from Putin's wife, Lyudmila Putina, on her thoughts on group sex. The two were married back in 1983, though Putin has been rumoured to have had extra-marital affairs with gymnast Alina Kabayeva and ex-spy Anna Chapman.
For the Russian president, it's just another example of the tough-guy image he's trying to foster. In the past, Putin has flown military jets, tranquilized tigers and polar bears and performed martial arts demonstrations.
Just last week he flew a deltaplane to lead a flock of cranes on their migration route.
Putin's comments stemmed from a question about a 2008 protest orgy that included Nadezhada Tolokonnikova, one of three members of the band Pussy Riot who were recently sentenced to two years in jail for hooliganism.

"They performed group sex in a public place," Putin said. "It was, as they say, their affair; people have the right to do what they like as long as it doesn't break the law, but [doing it] in public, then the authorities should have paid attention to that."
OK, we've got it, Mr. Putin: Group sex is fine so long as it's behind closed doors, and it's easier than sex with a single partner. Thanks for the advice.
