Making a baby has just got much easier now; British women can get their desired sperm with just a click. A tinder-style app has been launched by the London Sperm Bank which allows women to choose a sperm donor to father their child.
Order a daddy app will give the option for women to browse donor as per their desired characteristics like weight, height, eye and hair colors. The app also enables women to choose the donor as per his education level opt him based upon personality traits.
Donors listed on the app ranges professions including medicine, engineering, finance, law, performing arts and hospitality. The search function lists the potential father with a title “donor” followed by a number such as “donor 1000” and “donor 1004” and their physical characteristics mentioned below.
The description listed insight reads, “Pleasant, charming and easy to get on with, this donor was a cheerful intellectual teeming with positivity,” while another reads, “He is a well-mannered, well-spoken and very likeable individual”.
If the women find a potential father as per her “wish list,” she will pay about $1,000 via mobile app for sample sperm after choosing the donor. The man will be contacted, and the sample sperm is then delivered directly to the clinic where the woman is being treated. If the selected donor is unavailable, the women will get an alert once after the guy is available for a donation.
“This is reproduction via the mobile phone. It’s digital dads. Choose Daddy. This is the ultimate denigration of fatherhood. You make all the transactions online like you do anything else these days. This allows a woman who wants to get a sperm donor to gain control in the privacy of her own home and to choose and decide in her own time. We think this is the first of its kind in the world.” Says, Dr. Kamal Ahuja, scientific director of the London Sperm Bank,
London Sperm Bank believes it as a first of its kind. While half of the IVF clinics in Britain has already got registered to use this service.
