Sperm are People Too

by duncanr

By an 8-4 vote, the council for Delaware’s largest city passed a resolution on Tuesday calling on the Delaware legislature and the US Congress to pass ‘personhood’ rights to eggs and sperm.

Each ‘egg person’ and each ‘sperm person’ should be deemed equal in the eyes of the government and be subject to the same laws and regulations as any other dependent minor and be protected against abuse, neglect or abandonment by the parent or guardian,” says the resolution. “[L]aws should be enacted by all legislative bodies in the United States to promote equal representation, and should potentially include laws in defense of ‘personhood,’ forbidding every man from destroying his semen.

This resolution is similar to an amendment (later withdrawn) to a ‘personhood’ bill in Oklahoma that proposed . . .

Salmon Sperm Silicon Storage Substitute

by duncanr

It’s not my plaice to question the thought processes of scientists, but you have to wonder what was going through the head of the person who came up with this idea !

“By adding a bit of silver to a thin layer of salmon sperm DNA and sandwiching it all between two electrodes, scientists have created a data storage device that could lead to a cheaper replacement for silicon”

Wanker ordered to Cease & Desist by FDA

by duncanr

Trent Arsenault (I’ll resist the temptation to make asinine jokes about his surname) has been giving his sperm to women wishing to have a baby.

To date, he has ‘fathered’ 14 kids

The operation is run from his website, and he makes no charge for his ‘sperm’

Now, however, the FDA has sent him a ‘cease & desist’ letter reminding him that ‘informal sperm donations’ are illegal and punishable by up to a year in prison and a $100,000 fine.

Full story here –

‘informal sperm donations’ punishable by a year in prison ???

Jeez, that’s one way to encourage guys to wear a condom ! 😉

Ginger Sperm Spurned

by duncanr

Nobody loves me

Cryos, the world’s largest sperm bank is no longer accepting deposits of ginger sperm.

Other than the Irish, it seems very few people want redheads so Cryos has got a lot of ginger sperm on it’s hands it can’t shift

P.S. Cryos pays donors up to $500 (£316) 😯 – I know what I’ll be doing then to supplement my pension when I retire 😆

Sperm-Sniffing Dog Nabs Rapist

by duncanr

Guess what, guys ?

The Swedish police have trained a dog to sniff out sperm

The dog, Rapports Opus, spent a year being trained and has helped the police arrest a 23 yr old man on suspicion of rape after tracking traces of sperm from a park where a woman was attacked

And before anyone asks – I have no bloody idea how they trained the dog !!!

Art ? Or a pile of Shit ?

by duncanr

Tony Allard and Adam Zaretsky plan to create a piece of ‘BioArt’ using a piece of preserved turd from William S. Burroughs.

After extracting the DNA from the turd, they will mix it in gold dust, then fire it into a mix of fresh sperm, blood, and shit.

The resulting piece of ‘BioArt’ will be entitled ‘Mutate or Die’

Sperm under Attack

by duncanr

Don’t want to scare you, chaps – but have heard about the chemical Bisphenol A (BPA) ?

Seems there is some evidence that it can lower a man’s sperm count.

The worrying thing is it is widely used in the manufacture of plastic cutlery, plastic cups for drinks vending machines, and as the inner lining of food and drink cans – so pretty hard to avoid it

However . . .

Semen : the Facts

by duncanr

Ever wondered how long sperm can live inside a woman?

How many calories in a teaspoonful of semen (useful information for those of you on calorie-controlled diets !!!) ?

The average speed of semen at moment of ejaculation?

The world record for the furthest ‘splooge’ ?

The answers to these questions, and other useful nuggets of information about semen -and reason to be thankful if you’re a bloke that you don’t live in Papua New Guinea – can be found by Clicking link below –

Seminal Plasma Hypersensitivity

by duncanr

Wot’s that you say?

It’s quite a rare condition. Basically it means a woman is allergic to sperm. Which is a bit of a bummer really. Kinda takes the pleasure out of sex (for the woman anyway)

sperm200An American couple found out she was allergic to his sperm on their honeymoon (they’d used condoms before getting wed)

“I knew something was not right because I was in a lot of pain”, said Julie Boyde.

The pain that I was feeling was inside, like somebody sticking needles up inside of me like a real painful burning. It was really scary

Sometimes the pain would last for weeks after she and husband Mike had sex.

In essence, Julie’s body regards Mike’s sperm as an intruder and mobilises it’s defences to attack and kill it.

If they want to have children, therefore, they will have to adopt.

Small beats Big

by duncanr

Sperm compete in a race to fertilise an egg. The faster ‘swimmers’ – those doing the crawl rather than the breast-stroke – are more likely to win the race.

Longer sperm have always been ass­umed to swim faster than their shorter, more nobbly stumpy, colleagues because of the size of their tails.

But, although increased tail length means more thrust, this can be cancelled out by the drag of a correspondingly larger head, scientists reveal today.
