( 4UMF NEWS ) Sperm Donor Fathers 54 Children:
Call him “the sperminator.” A UK man has spread his seed to throngs of women and, in just a few short months, will have yielded a whopping 54 children, the Mirror reported.
Declan Rooney, 43, a former graffiti artist and web designer, began his benevolent bid to help women conceive last March.
“There wasn’t a eureka moment. I just felt as I was in the right place and time of my life,” he told the Mirror.
Declan has eight children of his own with four different women and is in a relationship with a woman, who supports his undertakings. He has received some backlash for his unregulated sperm donations, but maintained that his dealings are on the up and up.
“I’m a nice guy. Why can’t people understand I am just doing this to help out?” he said.
He insisted that he refuses compensation in exchange for his “services,” which is illegal in the UK.
Women have been such avid proponents of his services, that some have returned for a second round. And for the many aspiring mothers lining up to secure a bun in the oven with the ultimate baby-maker, there’s an app for that.
Rooney’s app enables women to deal with a private donor and bypass the impersonal clinical experience. There are, however, some regulations he has imposed on his donations.
He prohibits prospective mothers from smoking or engaging in sexual relations, and he monitors the financials of potential parents to ensure they can afford the expenses of having a child.
Rooney said that about three-quarters of his donations occur at the recipients’ homes, with the remainder of exchanges taking place in hotels or elsewhere.
The most peculiar encounter, he said, was when he met a client at a museum and handed over a coffee cup filled with his sperm, but not before accidentally pulling the emergency plug on his way out of the bathroom, where he was depositing his specimen.
Rooney likes to keep track of his offspring — 17 of the 31 children that have been born thus far are boys, while the other 14 are girls. But spreading his seed has proven to be taxing and he has recently decided to curtail his donations.
“Nowadays I try not to do more than two in a day. Maybe one in the morning and one in the evening,” he said. “It’s quite a stressful thing to do, donating and having a sexual partner at the same time.”
Above all else, Rooney wants sperm donors to garner the same level of respect that egg donors receive.
“Egg donors get treated like saints, sperm donors get treated like back alley, smutty boys,” he said. “But I’m not doing a bad thing. I’m not ashamed. I have helped women create families.”
