A Tokyo-based sex and relationship clinic has closed due to sexual tension, the Japanese news agency reports.
The clinic’s director has been replaced by a nurse, and there is a change in the way the clinic is run.
The news agency cited the head of the Japanese Society of Sexually Transmitted Diseases (TSDS) as saying the clinic had not been able to cope with the number of cases it had seen in recent months.
The TSDS has been operating at the clinic since March.
TSDS head Yoshihide Yasuda told the Associated Press news agency that the clinic was closed due “to the high number of patients that had to be treated” and to “improve the safety of patients and staff”.
Yasuda added that the decision was not related to any particular individual.
He said that TSDS had had to take on more patients, adding that the hospital’s staff “have not been affected”.
