Would You Donate Your Sperm?

Wed Dec 21, 2005 10:42 am

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.

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.

There is no way I could walk around with another person's child inside me, knowing it didn't belong to me and the man I love... it's just so far fetched to me, I would say no without hesitation if someone asked me. I think my man would appreciate that too (would you want your wife/girlfriend/whatever to carry another man's child? I think I'd have issues with my man donating sperm too as another woman would probably be carrying "his"- in biological terms anyway- child, I can only begin imagine how he must feel if I had to carry another man's child for 9 months)  Wink

Don't think it'll ever be an issue though...

no i would not donate.

however when the time comes to have kids, yes, ideally i would want that kid to be part of me, since i have plenty to pass on...unless my partner is far more intelligent than i am, which i unlikely but possible--then i'd want the child to be part him.

in college, there were adverts in the school newspaper seeking egg donors for up to $29,000 plus one year of tuition (which at the time was $34,000) but the woman had to have gotten a 1400+ on her SAT, currently enrolled at an ivy league school, be 5'8"-5'10" and blonde. kind of weird seeing those ads, but hey, it you want the money and someone has the money to give, they can set the parameters.

Depends on what she looks like! Might even consider doing it for free!  devil 

Not really! No, I wouldn't do it because of the "Moral Liability". Don't think I could knowingly produce an offspring and potentially not know anything about (him/her). I also wouldn't want to chance passing along any possible hidden genetic "defects". I have one perfect, brilliant, beautiful daughter. I coundn't ever hope to have the luck that I would be able to do that again in my life, it has been like winning the lottery every day since I first saw her and I wouldn't want to try to stretch the odds!

Not me. If you cant have kids for some physical reason, there is always the adoption option. There are so many kids without homes already.

It always bothers me that people want to go down the sperm/egg donor route because they really dont have what it takes to make a relationship work. If they cant do that successfully, how can they possibly bring up a child to be able to cope with relationships and all the issues they will have to face? You can't pass on what you dont have yourself.
