    Yes, as long as I could find out what was done with it.

    Once I've had a few children of my own, so I could guarantee I wasn't throwing away all my chances, yes. Not specifically to pay off student debt, but because I'd have no need for them and other people might.

    No - I wouldn't like thought of there being children out there that are biologically mine (if that makes any sense :s )

    There are always people who want to have children but cannot for certain reasons such as infertility of the male in the relationship, in which case i'd be happy to if the chance came up. However, I would object to selling sperm to women who have kids for fun or anyone whom I think would not be able to raise the child properly.

    I think it's a nice gesture, helping couples who can't concieve but I wouldn't give my own sperm. It's just weird knowing there'd be kids out there that are mine

    It depends what they were for, if the eggs were used to create children then not. However, if they were used for scientific research where there was no chance of offspring then I'd consider it.

    Well if it was used for a baby, probably not, because they'd end up getting a kid they hadn't bargained for :p:

    But for research and sich, sure, why not?

    Not for student debts but if it were fairly easy to carry out I might. I saw a documentary on BBC Three called The Great Sperm Crisis. It opened my eyes to the lack of sperm donors available to those couples who cannot conceive their own children. Due to the change in the law regarding the children being able to trace their father when they turn 18, many mistakenly thinking they might have to provide money to help them. From memory they said that there isn't even any sperm donors in Northern Ireland at the time of filming.

    Out for the Count

    No, but if my friend asked me to sex his girlfriend to get her pregnant because he couldn't, I'd be more than willing. :hat2:

    I thought it was illegal to sell sperm and eggs in this country?

    I'm pretty sure I read somewhere that you can now only get "expenses", which were a decent amount for a sperm donor, but nowhere near good enough compensation for the procedure a woman would have to go through in order to donate her eggs.

    I would. I think it's a nice thing to do for somebody.
