Following the same idea, a Chinese sperm bank published an announce on Wechat: “Get a free IPhone 6S in exchange for your sperm!”. Indeed, the price offer for a sperm donation equals the price of the IPhone 6S, between 5 000 and 6 000 yuan. This announce actually bring more than 500 000 visitors to that sperm bank.
