Anonymous sperm donors information exposed and out in the open

We just discovered a retired teacher who claims to be the “world’s most prolific sperm donor.”

However, most sperm donors choose to remain anonymous for a variety of reasons.

The world of secrecy for sperm donors, on the other hand, will soon shatter, and the truth will be disclosed against their will because of DNA testing and websites that provide tracing services. 

Clive Jones, a 66-year-old man from Burton in the United Kingdom, claims to be the “world’s most prolific sperm donor,” having fathered 138 children in the past nine years.

“I’m probably the world’s most prolific sperm donor with now being at 138 ‘babies’, well, 129 babies born, nine ongoing pregnancies. I might continue for another few years. Get to 150 anyway,” Jones told DerbyshireLive.

“I know of clinics and sperm merchants with greater numbers but they don’t donate, but rather sell semen,” he adds.

If he feels happy seeing the babies and happy parents, anonymous donors might not feel the same way.

“I think people would understand more if they saw the messages I get and the photos of the babies with very happy mothers. I feel the happiness it brings. I once had a grandmother message me thanking me for her granddaughter,” Jones says.

“I do it for free, though sometimes ask a bit for petrol. It’s illegal to charge and doesn’t seem right to make money when I have more than them,” he adds.

UK’s fertility regulator, Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority, has cautioned that men who gave sperm decades ago may potentially be contacted by unknown offspring as a result of DNA testing websites.

Companies like 23andMe and AncestryDNA provide information about biological relations, allowing the offspring of sperm donors to figure out who their fathers are.

The regulator says ‘donor anonymity as we knew it has gone, though donors are automatically anonymous to the couples and single women they assist.

Companies like 23andMe and AncestryDNA provide information about biological relations, allowing the offspring of sperm donors to figure out who their fathers are.

Men who have given sperm after 2005 are only anonymous until their offspring reach the age of 18. From next year, these men’s adult children will be able to contact them and seek the donor’s name and address.
