Sin Chew Daily reported that a man who was diagnosed with prostatitis went to seek treatment at a hospital in Guizhou, China, and was asked to watch porn movies.
He paid S$120 for the treatment.
Singapore urologist Dr Lin Fa Cai said the hospital might want the patient to masturbate while watching the movies, in order for him to discharge “unhealthy sperm”.
He said the movies used in such treatments were specially selected.
Dr Yang Zhi Jian from a men’s health clinic in Singapore said watching porn films could help as patients learn skills to improve their sex lives.
He, however, said he had never used the method before.
Another sex expert, Dr Yu Wei Siang, said the method could stimulate the production of male hormones.
