In Zhengzhou Central Hospital in China a hands-free sperm extraction machine – a machine that makes sperm donation even easier – was introduced recently. The machine is helping to extract for people who don’t feel comfortable doing it the old fashioned way.
According to the director of the urology department of the hospital, the machine is designed to help individuals that are finding it difficult to retrieve sperm the old fashioned way. We’re not entirely convinced that standing in a room shared by many other people and being milked like a cow is going to help, but their efforts are commendable.
Youtube is filled with videos of this new machine.
Here’s to technology.
The machine has a pink massage pipe at the front which can be adjusted to the likings of the user. Its height can be changed, but also the pulsating speed and massage strength. It also has a display which can be used to set up the machine, but it can also show a video to help speed up results.
The extractor machine might seem like an unusual way to deposit sperm, but the Chinese government said it could be the solution to their semen supply shortage.
“Hospitals mostly use masturbation as their collection method, without providing a venue or equipment,” said Ding Guijiang, inventor and chairman of China’s Jiangsu Sanwe Medical Science and Technology Center. “This makes collecting sperm on the spot very difficult. In order to meet clinical demands, we invented this automatic sperm extractor, which is also user-friendly.”
Odd Way To Deposit Sperm
Guijiang said the machine can replicate the physical movements during a sexual contact by moving back and forth. Urological patients, who cannot produce sperm without assistance, found the extractor useful.
The US$6,500 sperm extractor has sold about 10,000 units annually. It is also used in clinics in the United States, Germany, Russia, and France.
China’s Shortage Of Sperm
A study published in the Asian Journal of Andrology noted that a huge percentage of sperm donors in China were screened out due to problems such as quality and sexually transmitted diseases.
At Fudan Univeristy’s sperm bank, only 10% of the semen collected from more than 100 donors last year passed the quality standards. Shanghai Human Sperm Bank at Renji Hospital reported that only 25% of their sperm collections were acceptable.
