An Indonesian Child Protection Commission (KPAI) commissioner has apologized for claiming that women could get pregnant from swimming in the same pool as men.
Sitti made the statement during an interview with tribunnews.com, saying that women should exercise caution when swimming in a public swimming pool with men or risk getting pregnant.
“There is an especially strong type of male sperm that may cause […] pregnancy in a swimming pool,” Sitti said in the interview.
“Even without penetration, men may become sexually excited [by women in the pool] and ejaculate, therefore causing a pregnancy.”.
No one knows for sure how men react to the sight of women in a swimming pool.”.
Indonesian Doctors Association (IDI) executive Nazar said it was “impossible” for women to get pregnant in a swimming pool.
“The water in swimming pools […] contains chlorine and other chemicals,” he said on Sunday as quoted by Antara news agency. »
