Facing mounting pressure to attract qualified donors, a sperm bank in southeastern China has stepped up its social media game and reached out to local newspapers to spread the word about its urgent need for volunteers. In a recent interview in Chinese with Qianjiang Evening News, the Zhejiang Sperm Bank revealed that it was struggling to meet growing demand from couples seeking fertility treatment because although the number of people interested in donating has increased in recent years, only a small fraction of them were found suitable. When asked about the cause, the director pointed to a variety of factors, including a lack of physical activity and sleep deprivation. In addition to sperm quality, there are several other requirements to qualify as a donor. The Zhejiang Sperm Bank is only interested in men between the ages of 20 to 40, at least five foot four inches tall, and with no hereditary conditions like color blindness or severe shortsightedness. Those who suffer hair loss are usually screened out, too.

What are you doing this summer? If you're a young, sperm-producing man in China, there's a sperm bank that may have the right program for you. VICE reports that China's Human Sperm Bank of Shanghai is hosting a competition for college students to find out who has the best semen, as a way to promote reproductive health and recruit new donors. To be eligible, participants in the competition are required to have a sperm concentration that's greater than 60 million per milliliter of semen to be considered to be a donor. Launched on July 12th, the summer contest will pick winners that have the highest sperm count and motility. And if you'd like to remain anonymous for doing so, don't worry — winners' names won't be released to the public.
