    How was your experience if you did?

    I've been thinking of it because it's like, easy money but not too sure about it and read they demand the donator to go through various tests plus an interview. I get that this is pretty much a job but never done anything like this so I'm just wondering.

    They want people with good genetics and a high GPA you can try but i've never done it. Knowing I could possibly have some illegitimate kid out there bothers me too much.

    Too young (16), but probably won't even when I legally can because of the reasons stated above (and much more specifically the one directly below me vvv). I feel like donating plasma is a much better (and easier/safer) way to give back to your neighbors

    What's worse is that even if you sign a contract "waving your rights" to the child, you can still be held financially responsible for the child

    Most sperm banks have height requirements. Some sperm banks require that a donor be at least 5'9", but the requirement is often times taller than that.

    If you're short, a sperm bank isn't going to care about your wit.

    I personally would never do it. I'm Catholic and I don't believe in sex before marriage. In this case, its kinda the same thing because I'm giving another stranger my child. Just my opinion tho :D You do you!

    I believe you get paid less if you stay anonymous but you're still on file. They might be legally obligated to release information if there's a warrant. I've looked into it as I'm 6'8 but the other issue is that I'm mulatto and they primarily look for Caucasian people to donate. That and the fact that it would be a pain mentally knowing that my "kid" is out there. What are they doing? Are they okay? Etc.

    Why does this feel like one of those edge of the forum type threads? :P

    Especially with how one-sided family court tends to be. I even heard of a boy who was raped by a woman, was forced to pay child support for the kid.
