No More Porn in Fertility Clinics?

The days of using porn as a means of stimulating male patients in fertility clinics may soon be over. 2020health.org, a self-labeled “think tank” dealing with health and technology solutions has called out the NHS (UK’s National Health Service) for spending thousands of pounds a year on porn.


According to the organization, the use of pornographic material as a means of obtaining sperm is “unfair” to patients who might already be affected by the stress of infertility.They labeled the practice as addictive, demeaning to female staff members and expressed concerns as to how clinics are obtaining these materials to begin with.

While some fertility clinics admitted to spending thousands on lavish “viewing suites”, others relied on donations from patients, other clinics or even the publishers themselves. A brilliant marketing move on their part, I would say.

So how are men supposed to stock their sperm? Suggestions from the organization include self-discipline or simply masturbating at home. Despite there being other means of obtaining sperm samples (electroejaculation anyone?), free porn still sounds like a simpler choice.
