Yes, you read that title right. No, it wasn’t a typo or other error. But it’s not what you’re thinking…

sex ward in Wuhan hospital China

Some of us need to make babies, but, for some reason, can’t seem to get that done (except in the Sims). Well, if you and your significant other really need a bit of that ginseng juice, have rolls of Renminbi to spare, and you live around Wuhan in China’s Hubei Province (or plan to travel there anytime soon), Songziniao Hospital is the spot.

Here’s their madcap way of dealing with infertility issues: build a “brothel” — a series of them actually — smack in the center of all activity.

Don’t panic just yet. It’s still a credible institution, and its connoisseurs aren’t actually curb-crawling. But they are having sex, and are encouraged to milk it for all it’s worth. Enter the “sex wards” of Songziniao Hospital.

According to Hug China: “A hospital in Wuhan has recently opened VIP patient wards for infertile patients and couples having problems…conceiving babies. The wards are furnished with all necessary furniture and tools for easy and successful sex, except condoms. Promoted as a “second nuptial chamber,” the luxury decoration and furniture in the rooms is to encourage pregnancy by inspiring sexual passion in the patients.

The luxury wards — dubbed by the Chinese media as “sex wards” — each have an area of 50 square meters. The standard furnishing includes red lamps, sex toys, automatically adjustable double beds and couches, and pictures illustrating human genital structure. Sex-skill videos, nurses’ uniforms, and flight attendant uniforms are available upon request.”

Now, that shouldn’t be hard to DIY in the hushed secrecy of your bedroom (there’s always a nearby shop willing to help with that), but for those expecting an all-nighter of frolicking under the sheets in a controlled environment is the way forward, your money will have to do some talking.

Your money, and an optional “sex-skills expert,” who probably is just another creepy voyeur. As an afterthought, maybe, just maybe, our professional counselor-cum-voyeur has an absolutely necessary role to play. Consider:
“According to the sex professor, Peng Xiaohui from Huazhong Normal University, invited to the press conference, they once treated a couple having fertility problems. The reason the couple with a doctorate degree failed to conceive a baby after three years of marriage was found to be that the husband had mistaken his wife’s belly button for her vagina! Another civil servant couple had sex seven to eight times a night, resulting in fatigue and agony, because they thought the more times they had sex, the more likely the wife would get pregnant…”

We reserve our right to comment on that, we do. These things happen.

Oh, yes, here’s the part some of you will be interested in: one night of romping goes for the “discounted” price of 880 RMB (US$141). But you get the VIP voyeur as well. Don’t forget that.
