Would You Donate Your Sperm?

Being the CNN watcher, they were talking about sperm donors. Would you donate your sperm for money? They say you can make up to 900 bucks a month wanking it a couple of times a month from sperm banks. Doesn't sound like a bad idea for some extra cash eh?

Secondly, for you women, would you donate your body to be a surrogate mother for a profit? Or donate your eggs to be transplanted into another female?

Personally, I don't see anything wrong with it, other than the fact that you really don't know the donor that well.

It is a bit unfair to the men though. I think it would be much harder to find someone to carry our children and let us take them after the fact than for men to donate their sperm.

For instance, I really want children, and I really want them to be blood-related to me. But I don't think it's very easy to find someone willing to carry my child.

What do you think?

I was asked by a Lesbian couple to consider donating my sperm so they could have a baby. Without having to think it over, I told them no.

No. It would likely smear the ink.

You're right - that would make filing my tax return a sticky situation.

Len, please stop. Some of us don't care for that visual!

Seriously though, I was warned this year that I may be asked to donate, and I think I would consider it, but only under very rare, specific and ideal circumstances. I would also want the child to know I was his/her Dad and I would want a role in that child's life. Again, I would only CONSIDER it, and the situation would have to be exactly right.

I can't speak for women, but I know a few who've said they'd rather carry the baby as a surrogate rather than donate an egg. The logic, (as I understand it), is that if the egg was implanted (as well as the fertilizer), their body becomes a simple incubator, whereas if it were their egg, that baby would be apart of them.

Now, being a guy, there are a lot of things I don't understand about women. Can someone explain that logic to me?

As for donating to a sperm bank: No.

This is a subject I have thought about a lot lately, as I have some friends who went through egg donation and had twins.

I respect their decision and support them because I love them. However, I don't like the idea of "artificially" bringing more kids into the world when there are sooooo many children in orphanages. ADOPTION is a wonderful thing -- giving love and a sense of (greater) stability to a child who has no one.

I have several friends who have adopted (China and Russia) and they don't feel anything is missing by not having their genes involved.

Would I carry a child as a surrogate? Hell no. I can't even imagine being pregnant with my OWN child, much less one that belonged to someone else.

Would I be an egg donor? I dunno, but probably not. First off, I'm not sure why anyone would want my genetic material, but aside from that, I understand it isn't exactly the simple process it's made out to be sometimes.

Sorry, but I can't help you there. I guess tossing one off into a cup just isn't a messy. Oh yeah, and it usually doesn't carry the risk of death, either.

Unless you meet an awesome girl who wants to be the mother of your child. Keep looking! She's out there somewhere!

Take it how you wish. All I'm saying is nothing is out of the realm of possibility. I'm sure UAL747 would make a great father....now he just needs to find that great mother.
