People have thoughts about this sperm extraction machine for anxious donors

BTW

Hands-free technology has reached a whole new level.

A Chinese hospital is reportedly employing the use of high-tech machines to ease the process for sperm donors and infertility patients. The machines made headlines for obvious reasons back in 2012 when they were originally developed. The internet has changed a lot since then.

Pictures of the “sperm extractor”—a white and grey machine complete with a small, rhythmically thrusting attachment—showed back up online this week and quickly went viral. People don’t know how to feel about a machine specially made to jerk men off, but they have plenty to say about it.

The machine is reportedly intended to ease the process for men who struggle to retrieve sperm through traditional methods. It resembles a much more advanced version of the semen extraction tools often used on cattle and stallions, but minus the handlers. It even comes equipped with a small screen, where patients can view erotic images to help the process along.

The speed, height, temperature, and frequency can all be adjusted to suit each patient. Predictably, people online had sperm extraction jokes, um, locked and loaded.

Some people had some very valid concerns, like how the machine gets cleaned between donors.

The machines debuted Zhengzhou Central Hospital in China back in 2012. They made their Twitter meme debut on Monday.
