I work at the library. The library has magazines. On the cover of one of these magazines was an image of a naked baby floating across a white background. It was the cover of Newsweek. The cover story was on a donorsexual. “A Donorsexual?” I said. “What is that?” The newsweek article gave a biography of this guy, who isn’t a homosexual, or transexual, but simply prefers to only have sex if he is “donating sperm.” Weird, I know. This article explains about these strange human beings who have certainly found a niche market, like parents who want their child to one day be able to find out who their father is, or couples who want to save money. One Donorsexual even created the Free Donor Sexual Registry Web site for help with finding a donor, setting a meeting place, etc.
I can’t imagine what would happen if a seeking employer were to search for your name and it came up on the FDSR registry. But these guys have found a way to market themselves. I am not sure if it is all for the ‘greater good’ of society, or if there are some strange psychological things going on, too. There are even questions about whether or not the government should be involved in sperm donation/sales. It’s the world we live in.
