UI medical faculty denies issuing viral sperm donor announcement
The Jakarta Post
An apparent announcement by the University of Indonesia's medical faculty seeking 10 to 15 men willing to donate their sperm has gone viral on social media.
The donors will be compensated with Rp 100,000 (US$7.38) and lunch, the announcement says.
It adds that the sperm will be used as material for a workshop held by the faculty on Dec. 8.
The faculty, however, has denied it issued the announcement and claims it is fake.
"We are not conducting a sperm donor activity as it is forbidden in Indonesia," said Budi Wiweko, the faculty's research and community service manager, as quoted by kompas.com on Wednesday.
Budi said the faculty would indeed hold a workshop involving sperm on Dec. 8 but it would not involve any public participants or a sperm donor activity.
"The workshop will use animal sperm. So, there will be no sperm donors." (agn)
