    I gave blood three weeks ago =] It didn't hurt, just felt a little weird but was over in like 15 minutes! After I felt great, as ythough I'd done a really good deed! Of course I would do it again, it saves lives.

    haha I currently don't weigh enough, I'm 105 pounds and you have to be at least 110 (in the US), so I won't be doing so unless I gain some weight (hopefully not)

    I have three times, but last time they missed my vein and poked around my bicep with the needle, it was not pleasant. I probably wont go again.

    Interesting point - guys who have had oral/anal sex with other guys (even if it was protected) are not allowed to give blood, full stop...
