Acts of kindness are the new kink.
A medical fetish company donated its entire stock of scrubs to a U.K. hospital desperate for supplies during the novel coronavirus outbreak.
MedFetUK supplies doctor scrubs, typically used as costumes, to those with a particular affinity for medical roleplay in the bedroom.
But after being contacted by the National Health Service (NHS) amid nationwide shortages of basic hospital protective gear, the company decided to give up all their stock to help out.
MedFetUK confirmed with Global News that it did, indeed, give away all of its stock for the good cause.
In a series of tweets posted on Friday, the company said: “Today we donated our entire stock of disposable scrubs to an NHS hospital. It was just a few sets, because we don’t carry large stocks, but they were desperate, so we sent them free of charge.”
It posted the message along with a stock image of the classic light-blue hospital uniforms universally worn by doctors and nurses worldwide.

While MedFetUK said it doesn’t usually “do politics on Twitter,” it continued with another tweet that reads: “When you see someone from the government saying the NHS is getting what it needs, that is a lie.”
“We have been contacted this week by representatives of NHS procurement all over the country, trying to source basic protective equipment and clothing.”
It continued: “When we, a tiny company set up to serve a small section of the kink community, find ourselves being sought out as a last-resort supplier to our National Health Service in a time of crisis, something is seriously wrong. In fact, it’s scandalous.”
