We all want to do something special in life, and if you’ve not already achieved anything remarkable, your retirement is the perfect opportunity to do so. While a lot of people opt to become charity volunteers or write their memoirs, one man has chosen to become a sperm donor.
Yes, 62-year-old Clive, a retired teacher, decided to spend his twilight years becoming a very prolific father and has 65 children to his name. What’s more is that he does his business (if you can call it that) out of the back of his white van and is aiming to hit 100 kids before he’s done.
To learn about the world’s most prolific sperm donor, check out the video below:
In a new documentary called Super Sperm Donors, Clive is followed around the United Kingdom by a TV crew.
The married father-of-three refuses to accept any kind of payment for his services and is simply happy to help people out.
In fact, he will willingly drive from his family home in Burton, Staffs, to wherever the recipient lives.
On arrival, Clive will park his van (which I’m dubbing the Sperm Machine) across the street, go into the back and spank the monkey before taking the “donation” to the woman’s house. He puts it into a syringe so that the woman can inject it into her vagina.
Oh, and to prevent it from getting cold, the 62-year-old holds the syringe under his arm. Lovely.
In an interview with The Sun, Clive, who has chosen not to disclose his surname, said, “I give them the syringe and will talk to them for about five to ten seconds, just make a bit of idle chit-chat.”
“They are often nervous and it’s just a way of putting them at ease.”
“I know this is probably unusual, but for me, by doing it in the van there is far less involvement, less emotional attachment.”
However, because Clive is a rogue sperm donor and is not operating through a Government-approved Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority-licensed clinic, the women he impregnates could name him as a legal parent and ask for child support.
But the father-of-three hopes that operating from the back of a van will help show people that he’s only there for one thing and one thing only… To drop off his creamy load.
“I also know, technically, if any of the ladies ever wanted to report me to the Child Support Agency in the future, they could nail me for 18 years for child payments,” Clive acknowledged.
Can you imagine how much trouble he’d be in if he hits 100 kids and they all come knocking at the same time?!
Clive insists the only reason he is donating his sperm is because he wants to help people, but given how proud he is of the sheer number of children he’s fathered, the 62-year-old clearly gets a kick out of knowing that he has so many mini-mes around.
“I love the joy it brings. So many people say, ‘Thank you so much, Clive, you really have changed our lives’,” he revealed. “That, for me, is why I do it. It’s special. I wanted to help their plight because I love children so much.”
“About two-thirds of the people I have helped are same-sex couples. The others are heterosexual couples and a few are single ladies. I am not strict and I do believe every lady deserves to have a baby.”
“All I am doing is helping. I have always insisted on artificial insemination. I know some donors advertise this but it turns out they want sex.”
Despite enjoying his “job” so much, however, one person who is not happy about it is Clive’s wife.
“She knows about it but she doesn’t like it. Initially, I didn’t tell her and there were a few white lies about where I was going,” he said.
“A few months in, I decided to bring up the subject. I thought she was going to like it, so over a meal, I talked about becoming a sperm donor. By her reaction, you could see she was not impressed, so I dropped it.”
Oh well, they do say each to their own. One thing’s for sure – I’ll never look at a white van the same way again.
