Russia has opened a series of sex clinics filled with “dildos and vibrators” – and it's all because the population is stressed about the war, Kremlin-backed media has claimed.

The exact reason has not been divulged, but MK claims they will be filled with sexologists using “vibrators and dildos”.

She said: “I would like to ask a question to officials of the Ministry of Health: how many disorders associated with sexual disorders are recorded in the Russian Federation?
