Having S3x With Me Cures Cancer - Says Doctor Caught Half-Naked In A Hotel Room With A Female 'Patient'

An Italian doctor has been arrested after he was caught half-naked in a hotel room with a female 'patient' offering to cure her illness by having sex with her.

Dr. Giovanni Miniello, 60, who called his penis the 'magic flute,' was arrested on suspicion of sexual assault against two women by police in the southern city of Bari.

The gynaecologist was the target of an undercover sting by a TV show after one of his patients told producers how he had offered to 'decontaminate' her of the human papillomavirus (HPV) - despite her testing negative for the infection.

Investigative news programme 'Le Lene' sent an actress who secretly filmed herself undergoing an examination, receiving the same diagnosis and agreeing to meet Miniello in a hotel room.

Footage showed the doctor calling his penis the 'magic flute' and the 'Padre Pio of penises'. Padre Pio was a 20th century priest renowned for healing.
