Okay, this is simply NOT getting the respect it deserves. Full point.

TFA: Why? Houben has fathered a whopping 98 children in the space of 12 years. That's a lot of sexercise.

"A married couple came over here for one week after many years of visiting clinics in the USA and the UK. They had tried everything, then they read about me, wrote me and we had a very nice contact.

"Half a year later they managed to come, stayed for 8 days, she and I slept together four times. After ten years of trying they had their first pregnancy. Last year they came a second time for their second child and it worked almost immediately."



Tr0mBoNe: want to snark but I think this guy is winning at life so I will just raise a glass and nod.


I dunno, according to his website he's single. He's probably going to have a hard time settling down if he ever wants to stop fathering other people's children.

But unlike other donors, Houben prefers to be a part of the process ... in more ways than one. "I have met many children from right after birth and I've been present at two births, it was fantastic," Houben said.

But yeah, he's going to get hit for child support sooner or later.

Hell, I've donated sperm thousands of time, but the tissue never seems to get pregnant. It must be infertile.

"What motivates me is meeting new people who turn out to be great, normal people ..."

Uh, normal people don't meet some stranger and have sex with them in hopes of getting pregnant.

CSB: I worked with a woman years ago who always had to attend the death of a cousin/aunt/uncle and always talked about a brother or sister. After years of this, the new guy gets the balls to ask how many siblings she had. She had 28 siblings through her dad from 21 different women. That is a man breeding an army.

Also, she was from WVa.

I said by the way baby what's your name
Said I go by the name of Lois Lane
And you could be my boyfriend you surely can
Just let me quit my boyfriend called superman
I said he's a fairy I do suppose
Flyin' through the air in pantyhose
He may be very sexy or even cute
But he looks like a sucker in a blue and red suit
I said you need a man who's got finesse
And his whole name across his chest
He may be able to fly all through the night
But can he rock a party till the early light
He cant satisfy you with his little worm
But I can bust you out with my super sperm
I go do it, I go do it, I go do it, do it , do it
An I'm here an I'm there I'm Big Bank Hank, I'm everywhere

he now spreads his seed in a more traditional sense, or the 'natural' way, by offering a free service to have sex with women and couples who want to have a baby.

That works? So simple yet so brilliant.

If you can't have children, or even if you can, don't. I know everyone has heard about overpopulation to the point they dismiss it, but seriously, stop having kids.

Don't go to a sperm bank, don't be a donor, just stop reproducing. The earth can't sustain our current population in the long term, let alone a growing one. It's not government's job to tell people how many kids to have, but society needs place a stigma on anyone having more than one. It should become the social equivalent to herpes.

I did. My wife and I had one child (back in the 70'd), then I got snipped. Then we adopted another. They each have had one child and then stopped. In a century the world's population will be under 5 billion and slowly shrinking, and people will shudder at how hard life must have been back at the turn of the millennium.

I'm sure there will be a nice big war or genocide that'll come along soon enough to knock the population back down a notch or two. Nothing to worry about.

I find this odd. If a woman wanted/needed to get pregnant from a stranger's sperm  and she was willing to have sex with him, wouldn't it make more sense to advertise and interview to get the best breeding stock? This guy doesn't appear to be the cream of the crop.

And everyone in India and China is going to just cross their legs and stop breeding like bunnies on aphrodisiacs? While the industrial world stops reproducing, delaying or limiting themselves to one kid, the third world keeps dropping litters. People who should be bright enough to know how to properly raise kids and educate them to hopefully fix our f'ed up planet are abdicating it to swarms of people without the know-how and resources to do anything. Call it "The Marching Morons" or "Idiocracy" but that is where we are heading until we reach a horrid tipping point through wars for food and water and eventually a pandemic that could have been prevented if the best and brightest had done their part and raised children who were cared for and educated.

Reminds me of a cult leader....

He's got a website self promoting his mystic abilities.....to give women motherhood.  He's a tour-guide living in government housing....chubby and balding....but probably quite charismatic.

His alleged sperm count is just above the normal range.  Lots and lots of people have scored higher,  The record is 450 million according to  http://wiki.answers.com/Q/What_is_the_Highest_recorded_sperm_count_in _ a_human?#slide=2

Not that it really matters, too high a sperm count doesn't keep increasing chances.  So, essentially, sleeping with him is as likely to get you pregnant as sleeping with any normal/healthy guy.

So he goes around finding people who are desperate to have a child, promises them a child, while claiming that having sex with him, the old fashioned way, is MORE likely to get them a child than modern medicine (remember octo Mom?  I'm sorry, but science beats out nature here).  But he claims it, he meets with them, and next thing you know, he's banging them.

After a while, it becomes self-fulfilling prophecy.  If you sleep with enough chicks, some of them will get pregnant.  No official records are ever kept and you can highlight the success while ignoring the failures.  Whether he believes it or is running a scam to get laid, it's basically the same thing.

He could just donate sperm the old fashioned way, if he really believed he had super human sperm or if he wanted to help people....but that doesn't do it for him.

If it's such a shiathole, why are you still alive? I'm assuming because you get SOME sort of happiness that prevents you from slitting your wrists. Just admit you don't want to be a parent, it's ok, we won't judge you.
