It doesn't seem to be more obviously worse than many of the previously mentioned wierdtopias.

It's 50% less sex!

Actually, it's 50% less aggregate demand for sex.

You could spend even-numbered year being a good little worker-bee and saving up, with considerably less relationship-drama to distract you from maximum productivity, and odd-numbered years blowing it all on booze and hookers, for a net increase in sexual activity and net decrease in sexual frustration.
