The Internet has once again got my hopes up and crushed my spirit. There is a viral news story traveling around the blogs that claims the Shanghai Sperm Bank has their nurses masturbate the donors.

Any where else in the world and I would have called BS but so many damn weird things come out of asia it seems believable. But sadly, its a hoax. The China Internet Information Center (authorized government portal site to China) reports that Renji Hospital, where the bank is located, has officially denied the story.

“These pictures are completely misleading,” said Li Jin, a hospital official. “We never have female nurses assisting in sperm collection, which is done by the donor himself, alone in a special room. To protect donor’s privacy, no one is allowed to take pictures or shoot videos in the sperm bank.”

But Li continues…

“In fact, the sperm bank always has a lack of donors.”

I don’t think you would ever be short of donations if you had just gone along with the joke.
