They're harder to get.
 
2009-02-27 03:08:20 PM
Subby obviously failed 7th grade health and 8th grade biology.
 
2009-02-27 03:14:31 PM
To be fair, if that were reversed I could sell a towel in my room and retire young
 
2009-02-27 03:16:26 PM
Not really, when you consider how many sperms a guy can donate in a month Vs how many eggs.

Has anyone pointed out how ridiculously easy it is to jack off into a cup as compared to ovary mining?
 
2009-02-27 03:18:52 PM
Surgical operation w/ potential infertility vs. Spanking into a cup.

Yeah, I see why.
 
2009-02-27 03:21:56 PM
Subby's just sore the sperm bank denied him for shooting blanks.
 
2009-02-27 03:25:21 PM
Supply/Demand?

Or maybe Subby was just unhappy unable to perform with the poor selection on their porn menu.

Submitter must be home-schooled.
 
2009-02-27 04:14:58 PM
Men can make as much batter as they want, regardless of how many eggs women can provide.

its about time women win one.

Q: How do you know a man's brain is worth more than a woman's?

A: Women's brains are used.

Sold sperm in college...

It's harder than you think, performance anxiety.

But yeah, nothing compared to egg harvesting.

Congrats subby, that was so dopey my eyes have rolled out there sockets.

FTFA: Several sperm banks in New York City, where men are paid about $60 each time they donate, said there had not been a rise in donors.

Then how the hell do they donate in the first place?

Haven't you heard? In NYC they just have us fart into a bucket.

Amount of eggs dropped by a woman per month: 1.

Amount of spermatozoa dropped by Subby on an average Tuesday afternoon: 1,400,000,000.

Methinks there's a reason for the slight gulf, there.
 
2009-02-27 06:30:42 PM
Yeah... egg harvesting requires something like 3 months worth of hormones, you aren't allowed to have sex during that time (iirc), after which you have to have them surgically removed with a risk of infertility, and you can't donate once you turn like 30 so you have to get it done when you are still quite young... all in all egg donation is a biatch.


If I were pressed for cash I'd do it... if not for the fact I don't think they'd want mine... I'm too short, and my family has a history of heart disease, stroke, cancer, crazy, and alcoholism D:

Oh please, just sell a used tampon once a month.
 
2009-02-27 06:46:14 PM
Or many used tampons if you hit the women's bathrooms.

Egg harvesting makes me picture little people with mining tools inside a woman's body, hoping to strike gold and find an egg.

Then I picture one of those tiny people trying to steal an egg to sell and feed his family so he can get out of egg harvesting.

Then the foreman finds out and hobbles (Is that the word?) him, ala Misery.

Then I picture Kathy Bates naked.

brb, bunk time
 
2009-02-27 06:46:44 PM
You can get any guy to fap into a cup. That's why.
 
2009-02-27 06:47:15 PM
Actually, men usually have to pay to donate.

/Long Islands and Coronas!!
 
2009-02-27 06:49:05 PM
Did anyone point out yet how much easier it is for a guy in this scenario yet?

/Will gladly jizz for you tuesday for a paycheck today...
//don't know why that popped into my head
 
2009-02-27 06:49:27 PM
um. in other news, rare gems cost more than gravel.

/assumes subby was making a joke and raises my glass in tribute.
 
2009-02-27 06:49:36 PM
Bonus: One egg donation can't result in 14 children.

/Octomom!

The fertility treatments can increase your risk of cancer, heart disease and a whole bunch of other nasty shiat since they're basically large doses of hormones. Then you sit in stirrups, have your cervix dilated, and they stick a needle up through your fallopian tubes while you are under IV sedation. You have to go to the doctor frequently to get your hormones checked and your ovaries examined, and then you have to go to follow up visits for up to 6 months after the actual donation.

If it was as simple as jerking off into a plastic cup, it'd pay less.

yeah, but per sperm?

It depends on who's ovaries were talking about. Paris Hilton could get two guys and their mine cart in there.

They already make more money in prOn than we do, so they have that going for them.

/Which is nice.
 
2009-02-27 06:54:47 PM
I looked into this once. The qualifications they have to even consider the procedure for an applicant are outrageous. Then there's months of hormones, weekly, if not daily dr's appts, painful surgery, and a few days recovery. Not to mention the lack of sex.

They disqualified me because my grandfather had lung cancer that he got from smoking. Not for anything genetic.

You know of a market for these?

"I have wiped entire civilizations off of my chest, with a grey gym sock. That is special. Entire nations have flaked and crusted in the hair around my navel. That is special. And I want you to think about that, you two-egg-carrying beings out there with that holier-than-thou, we-have-the-gift-of-life attitude. I have tossed universes, in my underpants, while napping. That is special."

/Bill, we hardly knew ye...

Subtard reads Faux News. Nothing more needs to be said.

I thought that supply and demand (and other basic free market principles) had stop working when The Obama took power.

While I do agree it's usually easier for people to donate sperm than eggs, I would like to say sperm doesn't just fall out of guys on its own, you need to work to get it.
 
2009-02-27 06:59:15 PM
Came here to be snarky.

You all beat me to it.

Awesome.

If that's true, I know many a man who would like to enter that line of work.

They shoot you up with pergonal until you double over from pain, jab you with needles...versus...a magazine and a cup in a small room.

Right.
 
2009-02-27 07:02:46 PM
I'm not so sure about that. If I "donated" some eggs to my neighbors, by tossing a couple of dozen against their house, I'd get arrested. Do some community service, maybe clean up the mess I made, pay a fine. Not a huge deal. On the other hand, if I "donated" some sperm to my neighbors, by fapping against the side of their house, I'd get some jail time, my name on several naughty lists, and a lifetime of strange looks from the people in town. In that case, my sperm donation would be much more costly than my egg donation.

Picklehead: Faux

In all fairness, the article in no way implies that the price difference is unfair or a "double standard".
