Men Can't Quite Come To Terms With This Automatic Sperm Extractor

A Chinese invention is getting a lot of publicity on Twitter, but not for the right reasons.

Brace yourselves.

Footage of this "automatic sperm extractor" -- which was invented a few years ago -- has gone viral on Twitter this week, largely because, well it's an automatic sperm extractor, for starters.

And there is this video.

Apparently about 10,000 of the $13,000 devices are sold annually.  Among its many, some would say quite obvious, "uses" is a "user-friendly" way of collecting sperm samples at health clinics -- perfect for places where people may be too embarrassed to provide sperm samples in the, uh, old-fashioned way.

According to the Jiangsu Sanwe Medical Science and Technology Center in China, the machine "can simulate a vaginal environment, through massage, twitching, sucking, vibration, etc., act upon the human penis, which can make semen collection fast and safe. So it is the best clinical equipment of sperm collection."

Well. Gosh.

They also suggest it can be used to help with erectile dysfunction and now we don't know what to think or how to live in this modern world. Make it stop.

Needless to say, Twitter loves every second of this.
