When I was young, making love was for fun, but now, those days are gone! All by myself. I think you should know better. For sure, so many things are indeed taking some rather serious dimensions. You could recall that what we have today in the world, when compared with how they used to be, could be referred to as a fairy tale.
Once upon a time, when single women and infertile couples wanted a baby, they would pay a sperm bank to help them. Sometimes it costs thousands of dollars for a successful pregnancy. But now, those services have gone online, and at the click of a mouse, donors make their sperm available by offering to have s*x for free. It's a surprising -- and some say unconventional -- method of making a baby called "natural insemination."
How To Get Pregnant Online
Donors connect with women on the Internet who want to become mothers "the natural way," because the recipients believe having s*x maximizes their potential for getting pregnant.
ABC News' "20/20" talked to one sperm donor who calls himself "Joe" and says he's fathered more than 30 children.
"I'm not having intercourse with these women when there's no chance of pregnancy," he said.
Joe, a married man with three teenage children, asked "20/20" to hide his identity because of the double life he said he leads online as a "natural" sperm donor. He said his wife doesn't know about his extracurricular activities, but he has written a book about his experiences entitled, "Get Pregnant for Free on the Internet with a Private Sperm Donor."
"I have a Clark Kent life. Then, I have the Superman life," Joe said. "People might want to have millions of dollars in the bank, and then, you know, some of us might want to have dozens of children out there."
When he is not working as an Internet entrepreneur, Joe travels around the country to impregnate women from every walk of life. Sometimes Joe ships his sperm for artificial insemination, but he often donates by having s*x.
After seven years, Joe said he has slept with over 100 women for natural insemination.
"I'm unable to have as many children as I want in my relationship, and that would be unreasonable to ask a woman to give birth to 30 children," said Joe.
When asked how many children he expected to have over his lifetime, Joe's answer was surprising.
"The World Health Organization said I can get up to 2,500, but I don't think that will happen in my lifetime. The other donors I know who have a lot [of children] are up there around the 100 range. I'm standing on the shoulders of giants."
"I have the satisfaction of knowing that I have another descendant out there," Joe said. "It's not the road. It's how we get there, if we actually get there."
Kyle Gordy is also a donor. In addition to pursuing his master's degree in accounting, he offers his sperm for free to women who want a baby.
"I don't do any drugs. I don't smoke. I don't drink. I don't drink caffeine. I eat only sperm-friendly food: wheat, brown rice ... fruit and vegetables," Gordy told "20/20."
The 23-year-old said he has what it takes to be anyone's father. "Right now I'm attending university. Both siblings are engineers. The nuclear engineer is my twin. My grandpa was a scientist," said Gordy.
On his online advertisement to be a sperm donor, Gordy posted photos of himself as a child and as an adult and information about himself, including his hair color and IQ.
No question is off limits for prospective sperm recipients who contact Gordy, who's been asked: "'Is your sperm good? Have you had success in the past? How do I know you're going to get me pregnant? How do I know you won't flake?'"
While he doesn't get paid for donating his sperm, Gordy said his purpose is not about s*x, but about creating new life.
"I'm passing on my legacy and giving these people kids," Gordy said.
In fact, Gordy said his first child was born recently. "I feel like, wow, I did it," said Gordy.
And what else can you say? may sound new to you but just know that it has been happening out there and around you.
