Well knock me down with a feather...

As anyone with reasoning power greater than that of, erm, a gnat foresaw there is now a national shortage of sperm donors due to the change in the law removing the right to anonymity. Twenty odd years ago a friend used to supplement his student grant by donating at about a tenner a go (I think) but I was never persuaded as I was not tempted by the prospect of fathering a child I would never know.

Above and beyond that, if anonymity has gone, the next step would be names going to the CSA. £10 quid doesn't seem like much of a bargain in the light of that possibility, does it?

And can we keep this 'PG', please.

apparently you don't even get the tenner now!!

A tenner a go?
I could be driving a lamborghini with all the seed I have wasted, maybe a yacht as well )+:
By my reckoning, in my teens I must have been losing £100 a day, heroin would have been cheaper.

rigger what do you get, a cup of tea and a biscuit ?  



Blogger Croydonian said... 2:46 pm

You at least get a cup of rather ropey instant coffee and a biscuit if you give blood.

Being inquisitive, whenever I give blood I'm always hoping to see the blood bag, but it is always set up in such a way that you cannot.

just the pleasure of sowing the seed in some right on lefty who will forever wonder why her boy is so obsessed with fighting and fornication and not the needs of peruvian guinea pig farmers.Oh joy!!!

talking of yachts and such
I read a felix dennis quote this weekend, its not original, and I of course will make it filthier, he said he always rents jets and boats rather than buying them, his philosophy being
"If it floats,flys or fucks just rent rather than buy, it works out cheaper in the end"

If only Sir Paul McCartney had listened.

One more example of the bossy stupidity of the socialist. Did they honestly not foresee the consequences of removing anonymity? I mean, duh? Double duh?

Rigger - now that idea has legs, doesn't it? Meanwhile, I've occasionally wondered if Michael Gove's biological parents are aware that he is their boy.

PCF - as a friend of mine is fond of saying, the difference between sex for love and sex for money is that the latter is cheaper. He's still engaged though...

Verity - and doubtless the same bright sparks are appalled that anyone would expect to be paid for donating rather than doing for it the good of humanity.

You cannot buy happiness -- but you can rent it. (Horace, was it?)

So we all agree..
Happiness is a netjet flight to St Tropez, stay in a rented vila, screw loads of Ukrainian prostitutes on a rented 100ft sunseeker predator and then tell Amex where to stick their bill?

Dear lord, such old school gallantry....

perhaps they should send a team to "collect" at the wankathon that Iain highlighted a while back.
