(Gawker) - A man in China was ordered to pay $300 in damages after sending a bottle of his sperm to a woman as a token of his love.
But no amount of money will likely offset the victim's trauma, having rubbed most of the bottle's content on her body before realizing it wasn't moisturizer.
19-year-old Zeng Lin told authorities it was her roommate who revealed the shocking truth to her after she complained that it didn't quite smell like face cream.
The culprit, 22-year-old Gou Wen, has since apologized for his actions, saying it was simply a gesture of affection.
"I love her so much but she didn't know it and I didn't know how to tell her," the Chongqing native is quoted as saying, "so I did that thinking it was the ultimate way to show love."
He insists he understands what he did was wrong, but vows to "find another way" to win Zeng's heart.
