Myths about sperm donation

"A vegan bloke in tie-dye"

What does a typical sperm donor look like? We took to the streets to hear the public perception of sperm donation and to bust some myths. Watch the video here.

5 common myths

Only young students donate sperm
Incorrect. Our sperm donors range in age from 18 to 45 years. Many of them have full-time jobs.

As a sperm donor, you need to pay child support when we use your sperm
Incorrect. You have no financial nor legal obligations towards any children born from your sperm. 

Sperm donation takes place in a seedy cellar
Incorrect. Our offices are clean and bright and run by professional lab technicians and nurses.

You can't be a sperm donor if you're in a relationship
Incorrect. Many of our sperm donors have partners, wives and children. Talk to them about it.

You can't donate sperm if you're gay. 
Incorrect. Your sexuality is your business. All we want to know is that you're fit and healthy.

Of course you won't have to pay child maintenance when we use your sperm.

You're the one who'll actually earn money from your donation. You can help women and couples create a family. And you'll be compensated.

Being a sperm donor

What our donors say

I am convinced that your environment and upbringing define who you become as a person. That's why it's important to me that parents who want a baby out of love also have that opportunity. As a sperm donor, I'm able to fulfil the greatest wish of these people. For me, love is the most important aspect of raising a child!

// Martin

After talking to a friend who is a sperm donor, I decided to apply. I liked the thought of helping others. I did the initial tests and was accepted as a donor.

It's a privilege for me to be able to create life and make others happy.

I have been a sperm donor now for almost three years, and the thought of helping others is actually why I keep doing it. I am aware that someday, a donor child may contact me, and I look forward to talking to them and to giving them the answers, they are looking for.

// Nicolai

I've experienced first-hand what it does to a person to not be able to have the children you want. If I could assist in such a difficult situation, I would be happy to. Personally, I like the thought of passing on my genes and knowing that even if I never have children of my own, a part of me lives on. The money is a very nice bonus. I don’t consider it payment; it’s merely compensation.

// Christian

My wife and I had many difficulties having children. My wife had a fertility check and I did a sperm count analysis, and we had a talk about our options within the area of fertility treatment. If my sperm count were low, we would very possibly use a sperm donor.

It turned out that I didn’t have a low sperm count, and because of our talk I decided that I wanted to do my part to help others in that situation. It was not a hard decision to make, and I applied right away.


In my opinion, if you want help, you also have to help others. I'm proud and happy to be able to help people fulfil their dream.

// Simon
