Footage of this "automatic sperm extractor" has gone viral on Twitter this week, largely because people are horrified.
A Chinese company created a human sperm extractor several years ago. Among its many, quite obvious, "uses" is a "user-friendly" way of collecting sperm samples at health clinics, in countries where people may be too embarrassed to provide sperm samples in the, uh, old-fashioned way.
"It 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," the company proudly claims.
It's not clear why having sex with a Dalek is less embarrassing than "doing the five dog dance" in the privacy of a clinic room, but they are undeniably popular. Reuters reports that 10,000 of the $13,000 devices are sold annually, despite not looking like something you'd like to put your penis in.
This video of the device has gone viral on Twitter, with many people baffled why it's a thing.
"1950: I hope we get flying cars in the future," one Twitter user wrote. "2019: you can fuck a bin".
People are mainly confused why someone would be too embarrassed to masturbate in a hospital setting, but somehow be fine with having sex with some sort of Dalek fitted with a pump-action vagina.
The machine, which is available on Alibaba in pink and grey, is also fitted with a "premature ejaculation desensitization training function".
"The strong currents impact and rub the glans penis repeatedly in order to reduce the excitability of nerve endings so as to passivate external nerve of glans penis, sulcus coronarius, and the surface of the penis," the Jiangsu Sanwe Medical Science and Technology Center wrote of their device on Alibaba, as if it wasn't sexy enough. "And regulate the sex nerve center in order to minimize nerve sensitivity, improve ejaculatory threshold to treat premature ejaculation."
Some people have pointed out how this is yet another example of tech being designed by men for men, whilst technology for women lags behind.
