A sperm bank in China has offered university students a cash-for-semen deal as the country grapples with the problem of falling birth rates.
As an added bonus, the Henan Provincial Human Sperm Bank in central China has also invited students in the provincial capital of Zhengzhou to take part in a competition.
The contest aims to find both the man with highest sperm count and the most vigorous sperm, according to Jiupai News.
The Henan sperm bank is one of 27 across the mainland that helps couples who cannot conceive or are affected by hereditary diseases.
