Fremont - Looking for a sperm donor? A tall, blond, engineer whose only sexual activity involves masturbating into a cup, and donates his seed from altruistic motives sounds ideal. However, the FDA have told him to stop donating his sperm or face prison.
A California man has been warned by the FDA that unless he stops "manufacturing" sperm, to donate to childless women and couples, he faces a year in prison and a fine of $100,000. Trent Arsenault, 36, hooks up with the recipients of his sperm donations online, and them provides fresh semen donations to be used for artificial insemination's.
Arsenault advertises his sperm services on his personal website trentdonor.org, where interested parties can check out his profile and peruse photographs of the 6 ft 1 inch blond bachelor. Unlike regular sperm banks, Arsenault does not charge for his seed. He says that he has donated sperm to about 50 women, mostly Bay Area lesbians.
The FDA issued their warning alleging that Arsenault “does not provide adequate protections against communicable diseases" in breach of a 2005 FDA law "that requires donors to undergo STD and communicable-disease tests, reviewed by doctors, within seven days of every donation." (The Daily Beast)
Arsenault wrote to the FDA explaining his donations were “fulfilling a needed role as women realize that anonymous biological fathers often deprive their offspring a needed identity.” Moreover he is unlikely to contract STD's as he says his only sexual activity "involves masturbating into a cup." He said “I describe myself as donorsexual so my sexual activity is limited to donation."Women who need donated sperm to conceive have the choice to pay for frozen sperm from a sperm bank, or the option of perhaps picking up a random stranger who may well have a communicable disease.
