Broody young Brits buy sperm online as they give up search for ‘The One’

Record numbers of single women and teenagers who want babies are abandoning the search for Mr. Right and turning instead to online sperm donors.

A staggering ¼ of all women registered to online sperm donor sites are under the age of 25 and some are as young as 18 and 19.

Many women frustrated with endless dead-end relationships are giving up the dating-scene in order to pursue the challenges of motherhood alone.

One 20-year old who’s relationship fell apart after losing a baby said:

“I am financially secure, I have found a job with flexible hours, I have a house and a mortgage. I know I could offer a child a loving, safe environment, so I don’t know why I should wait.’

For many woman, finding a man to father their baby is now as simple as logging into or, creating a profile with a picture and a short bio, sitting back and waiting for the interest to flood in.

Expert health bodies such as ‘The Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority’ warn of the dangers faced when finding sperm donors online.

When sperm is donated outside of licensed clinics, there are a number of important factors to take into account. For instance, it is important to remember that the sperm donor is legally the child’s official father, which could potential raise future legal problems. There is also a dangerous risk of transmitting disease or infection through unscreened sperm.
