Requirements for Paid Sperm Donors
Asides from being between the ages of 18-40, there are some other requirements to meet in order to be able to sell sperm:
- You must be in excellent health and you will be required to provide extensive medical history for yourself, parents, siblings, and grandparents.
- You will have to go through a medical screening process to ensure that your sperm will not pass on any disease. This includes blood test and semen analysis.
- You will have to take a follow-up examt every three to six months for as long as you remain a sperm donor. Any screenings and tests will, of course, be free to you.
- The screening process can take a few weeks, and more applicants are rejected than accepted.
- If accepted, you must be willing to commit to visiting the sperm bank and donating sperm one to three times a week for at least six months.
- You will usually receive around $100 per specimen. $100 x 3 visits to the sperm bank a week = $1,200 a month.
Sell Sperm as an Anonymous or Non-Anonymous Donor
- If you chose to sell sperm as an anonymous donor, the information provided to the recipient will be limited to some basic stats, i.e. age, height, weight, ethnicity, hair color, and eye color.
- As an anonymous donor, the clinic promises never to disclose any of your contact information.
- As a non-anonymous donor, the recipient of the sperm will initially receive the same, basic information, however, once the child turns 18, they will, if they choose, be able to get your contact information from the sperm bank.
- Sperm donors are protected by law from being responsible for children produced from their donations. Furthermore, the donors would also have no rights over these children.
- One thing to take into consideration is the growing power of genetic research along with there being more and more genetic information becoming available online. It is conceivable that even an anonymous sperm donor could one day be traced down by the offspring of one of their donations.
