[dropcap]R[/dropcap]ecently, infertility centers have mushroomed with new hopes for childless couple and jobless young gigolos. Nowadays, many doctors have set up a sperm shop with few young smart, intelligent sperm producers. I would like to call sperm producers rather than donors.
In the movie Vicky Donor, unemployed Vicky is urged by a fertility sexpert to make better use of his ‘wasted’ sperms. He turns this into a ‘productive’ idea, until it becomes the origin of more troubles. Looking for designer babies anyone? With the looks of Brad Pitt/Aishwarya, stardom of SRK and the talent of Lady Gaga? Well, you need a super-sperm that’s one in a million and Vicky Donor is full of the ‘spunk’ that your fertile imagination needs. He’s the biological dad of 53 healthy children! Want more? He’s unemployed, single, and his view of sex is, jitna mile, utna kum. So what if all he does is ‘shag’ for a living.
I was surprised when I was reading an interview of Dr. Aniruddh Malpani, an infertility expert, saying Brahmin sperms are in great demand. In my view, it is merely because media, judiciary and the so called group of intellectuals have been facing constant threats to the false dogmas of “Hinduism” due to serious attacks being made against Hinduism’s false story. Hence, the caste Brahmin being most dangerous species on earth constantly poses serious threats to the humanity. It is therefore, the caste Brahmin who are in the commanding position as they rule the media and judiciaries in India have hatched a conspiracy and given the “Brahmin Sperm theory”. It clearly shows that Brahminism i.e. Hinduism has come so low to save and protect themselves. Brahmin Sperm theory abundantly speaks that the Hindu God strictly implement discrimination in producing human being as lowest, lower and higher and highest human divided into several thousands of castes.
Do you believe that God interferes in man’s day to day life? No way. This is what the Priests make it out to be – for them to be seen as the citadels of power – that is their selfish agenda. So, do not confuse it there. Yet, there is a merit in Atheism too.
Sperm donation is the provision (or ‘donation’) by a man, (known as a ‘sperm donor’), of his sperm, with the intention that it be used to impregnate a woman who is not his sexual partner. While the sperm donor is the natural or biological father of every child produced as a result of his donations, he is generally not intended to be the legal or de jure father. Depending on the jurisdiction and its laws, he may or may not later be eligible to seek parental rights or be held responsible for parental obligations.
Sperm is often donated through a sperm bank or clinic, which are subject to varying state regulations, including restrictions on donor anonymity and number of offspring. By having sperm provided privately and directly to the intended mother, donors and recipients may avoid legal restrictions but also lose the benefit of legal protections of recipient and donor rights and responsibilities. Heterosexual couples suffering from male infertility, lesbian couples, and single women are the primary recipients of donor sperm. When going through a sperm bank, they may select their donor on the grounds of looks, personality, academic ability, race, and many other factors.
Pregnancies are usually achieved using donated sperm by artificial insemination (either by ICI or IUI in a clinic, or Intravaginal Insemination at home) and less commonly by in vitro fertilization (IVF), usually known in this context as ART but insemination may also be achieved by a donor having sexual intercourse with a woman for the sole purpose of initiating conception. This method is known as natural insemination, or NI. In India, it’s well known that couples shopping for sperm demand both looks and brains. What isn’t so well known, despite being fairly commonplace, is a more outrageous request: caste-based sperm.
Some years ago, Dr. Saurav Kumar, a Patna based gynaecologist, created a furore when he told a newspaper that childless couples insisted on knowing the caste of sperm donors. However, while one may be tempted to assume that caste biases are entrenched only in states like Bihar, the city’s infertility experts insist otherwise. Brahmin sperms are in high demand among childless couples, it means most Brahmin couples are childless? However, going by Indian Council of Medical Research guidelines, medical centres reveal only the religion of the donor, not the caste. Really, this is very sad thing which is taking place in India too.
In India, however, the donor remains anonymous. All that couples are told is that it is “a young, healthy and fertile physical match yet, they persist. They want to match the primary characteristics such as height, skin and colour with their husband. Mostly, they want someone who is taller and a shade fairer than their husband, who points out that this may be a “very consumeristic” approach. Communities prefer a fair-skinned donor, adding that couples want them to find the closest skin, hair and eye colour match.
While in a majority of cases, it is the gynaecologists who contact sperm banks and request for semen samples based on the client’s height, skin and hair colour preferences, some high-flying couples, especially NRIs, visit the sperm bank personally in their desperation. In 2008, when Dilip Patil tried to popularise the concept of sperm donation in India through an awareness booth at IIT’s annual Mood Indigo festival, it was, he who said “an anti-climax”. “The students were shying that they even avoid going in a lane where he put his stall. His real-life anecdotes about convincing people to donate sperm made it to Vicky Donor. He says, he used references about sperm donation in ancient mythology, props and money to convince prospect and convert him into donors.
