Rich wanker


I looked, semi-jokingly, into becoming a sperm donor a few days ago! At $100 a pop (quite literally) I had problem thrown $1,000,000 worth of the little fellows away between the ages of 11 and 31.

But becoming a sperm donor isn't that easy.

Each donor can only give 6 samples. They will get paid $100 for each sample but only after 6 months of the donation and only if they pass the correct tests. So you are looking at almost two weeks of no sexual activity for a disappointing $600 that you might not even get. Pants!

From the website:

You will need to collect 3 to 5 samples with an interval of 48-72 hours between specimens. These samples are used for quality assurance testing only, and will allow us to screen potential candidates. No payment is issued for these evaluation samples.
All semen samples must be collected on the premises.

You must have abstained from any sexual activity or masturbation for 48-72 hours.

The quality of each sample is checked for the sperm concentration (number of sperm cells) and motility (percent of sperm cells moving). This procedure is performed on the fresh ejaculate, and again within 3-4 days on a thawed portion of the frozen specimen for quality assurance

When I told Amy the idea she was not that happy.

She is worried that the kids I 'father' might end up meeting one day, fall in love and give birth to a kid with webbed feet!

This idea has been put on hold indefinitely.

PS While on the subject of masturbation check out this story on the bbc news website - hysterical!!! I can't believe he didn't get sacked!
