An Indonesian child protection chief has claimed that women can get pregnant from swimming in the same pool as men with “strong sperm”.
Sitti Hikmawatty, the commissioner for health of Indonesia’s Child Protection Commission (KPAI), made the statement during an interview with Tribun news, saying that women should be wary of the risk of unwanted pregnancies.
“There is an especially strong type of male sperm that may cause […] pregnancy in a swimming pool,”
“Even without penetration, men may become sexually excited [by women in the pool] and ejaculate, therefore causing a pregnancy.”
She went on to say that his type of pregnancy was more likely to happen if the women in question had reached an age of being sexually active.
“If women are in a phase where they are sexually active, [such a pregnancy] may occur. No one knows for sure how men react to the sight of women in a swimming pool.”
Sitti, also went on to state that in the US, women who killed people but were going through PMS were acquitted of their crimes.
