Sex tax could get us back in the black

• Now that we have the household charge, and water charges are on the way, the next charge that the Government will impose that impacts on daily lives will be a tax on sex.

In my opinion such a tax would be fairer than the above two. It satisfies two of Adam Smith's canons of taxation.

It can be easily collected by having an electronic device attached to the bed. The vibrations from the performance of the sexual act will then be transmitted to said device. The gadget will record the duration of the act.
