How to be a good Private sperm donor in the UK
Do not do the dirty on recipients….EVER.
Be as honest as you can be.
Go with your instinct on recipients.
Do not donate for malicious reasons eg racism, egotism, sex mad or you can’t get a woman in the real world…
Learn about ovulation and timing.
Do not approach recipients who you can not travel to, want your ethnicity, age group etc
Do not repeatedly post on websites or groups (better to remove/delete old posts)
Be weary of female admins of FB groups and websites
IMAGES AND DESCRIPTION
