You don’t need to go to extreme measures like selling your kidney to raise cash for an iPhone anymore, as you can get enough money just by donating sperm!
According to a report by Shanghaiist.com, a sperm bank associated with China’s Shanghai Number 1 hospital is now offering eligible donors a rose gold iPhone 6S for sperm donation. In order to be eligible for this ‘exchange’, the candidates need to have a Chinese identity card, no genetic diseases, a college degree, and must be 165cm tall.
Those who pass these eligibility criteria will undergo a full health examination by Rujin Hospital, worth around 1,000 RMB. This test will establish the fertility status of the candidates.
Those who pass the test will be given 6,000 RMB for a 17ml sperm sample. However, donors must wait at least 48 days before making another donation to the bank.
Though there is no word yet on how many people have signed up for this offer, this unique strategy for sperm donations seems to be catching on in China. At least one more sperm bank has made a similar offer.
This comes just days after it was reported that two Chinese men tried to sell their kidneys in exchange for money to buy an iPhone.
