A newlywed who slept with a dwarf stripper on her hen night surprised her husband nine months later – by giving birth to a dwarf.
Well that’s the tale – spawned by Spanish website LasCincoDelDia - that is currently going viral online.
The site, which specialises in the topics of celebrities and sex, states: “Neither her closest female friends or her family knew she had sex with the midget stripper but once she had her son in her arms, she broke down and confessed what had happened.
“As you can imagine no-on that sleeps with a stripper at her hen night broadcasts it or at least they try to take their secret to the grave.”
“But the protagonist of this episode had no choice but to confess and could never have pretended the boy was her husband’s because of a little problem – the child was born with dwarfism.”
Unsurprisingly neither the Spanish bride nor her lover are named in this somewhat dubious, single-source report.
But, as the Telegraph points out: “It is not unusual for dwarfs to be hired as entertainers at hen and stag parties in Spain and several websites offer the services of ‘miniboys’ as they are known in Spain.”
However one dwarf stripper working in Spain appeared to doubt the tale.
“They’re mostly men in their forties and fifties and who’s going to want to sleep with a man that age?”
Dwarfism is a condition characterised by short stature, the NHS writes.
It can manifest as proportionate (PSS) or disproportionate (DSS) short statue.
The most common cause of PSS is being born to small parents while conditions associated with DSS are usually caused by a faulty gene.
