Days after China's richest man Jack Ma advised people to adopt the "996" (9 am to 9 pm, six days a week at workplace) philosophy, Alibaba founder has now shared a secret for an improved life – go for "669" (sex for six days, six times, with duration being the key).
According to a report in Daily Mail, China's richest man gave this advice to the employees during Alibaba staff's group wedding in the country.
"At work, we emphasize the spirit of '996'. In life, we should follow '669,'" Ma said.
The 54-year-old Ma was speaking at his company's mass wedding which takes place every year on 'Ali Day' on May 10 at the company's headquarters in Hangzhou.
The "996" work philosophy was criticised by the tech industry.

Jack MA is losing it yet again...
The "669" philosophy has also created a social media storm, with many net users calling it lewd.
Alibaba's Jack Ma wants its employees to follow 996 i.e 9am to 9pm six days a week at work and 669 i.e sex for six days, six times a week at home.

"Who on earth would have the energy to do 669 at home after 996 during work?" quipped one user.
Jack Ma recommended his employees to follow ‘6 times sex in 6 days’ schedule for a healthy life. He should also explain that how Alibaba employees will get the most from the spirit of 669 in bed after getting fucked up by 996 philosophy at work— Debarati (@debarati_m) May 14, 2019
The "669" quote was posted on Alibaba's official page on Weibo with a winking emoji.
"Making a lewd joke in public and notoriously promoting it - are you being responsible to minors? Thumbs down this time," read another comment.

The comments have drawn the 54-year-old billionaire a lot of flak on Chinese social media with many slamming Ma for commenting on his employees' sex lives. Others pointed out that after working 9 am to 9 pm shifts for six days, most of his employees would have no energy to perform at 669 levels.
