Recently an entry on Weibo about an automatic perm extractor went viral, it says, “A hospital in Nanjing introduced an automatic sperm extractor. The screen on the machine plays artistic movies and with surround sound in the room. There is a massager at the bottom of the machine with adjustable speed and frequency. Now you can make that money standing up!”
Zhengzhou evening news claimed in a report that hospital in Zhengzhou also has this machine. Reporter went to Zhengzhou Central Hospital, affiliated to Zhengzhou University. Directed by hospital urology department head Zhu Guoxin, reporter finally saw the “amazing machine”. Just like the pictures on Weibo, the machine had a display screen on top and automatically played artistic movies when the machine was switched on. The “massage pipe” in front can be adjusted according to the height of the user. Users can also adjust speed, frequency, amplitude and temperature etc. Machine is also equipped with headphones and two handles on both sides.
However as to what was said on Weibo “make that money standing up”, Zhu Guoxin stated that this sperm extractor was not used for sperm donation but rather it was used on infertility patients.
“When male infertility patient come for treatment, we must first fully inspect the sperm which requires sperm extraction.” Zhu said, “This machine is only recommended for patients that had difficulty retrieving perms, user must use a condom, but lubricant and chemicals on condoms will affect the accuracy of the test results.”
Zhu then said, “Perhaps netizens misunderstood the usage of the machine, and thought it was used for sperm donation. In fact, sperm bank has very high standards; donors must go through strict medical examination and they will definitely not use a sperm extractor.”
