I was reading this, and it got me interested:
Women desperate to become mothers are increasingly signing up for sperm donation websites where men are offering 'natural insemination' only.
Sites including co-parents.net, co-parentmatch.com, spermdonorforum.com, donordaddy.co.uk and pollentree.com advertise themselves as 'dating websites', forums aiming to link people wishing to conceive or 'co-parent' a child.
Many men on these sites will not offer artificial insemination (AI), only natural (NI) or partial (PI), leading some critics to believe they are simply targeting vulnerable women for free sex.
So while regulated HFEA clinics - which charge £2,000 per cycle - screen all donors for STDs and hereditary conditions, 'free' sperm donation websites do not. Similarly, clinics protect the identity of donors until any child produced is 18, while the conditions of donation via free websites is entirely up to the co-parents.
my opinion: Oh heaven forfend that a man wants to get off a few good ejaculations inside a warm piece of poontang in exchange for giving a woman a baby!Zita West of Zita West Clinics, an HFEA-regulated site, told Croydon: 'When a woman's desperate for a baby and can't afford a clinic, she's vulnerable.
'She may be panicking about her biological clock ticking and might then risk meeting one of these men.
