A man who has had sex with more than 200 women – fathering more than 180 kids – has moaned he can’t get a girlfriend.
The 51-year-old impregnates women that he meets online by “partial intercourse” – sex without kissing or cuddling – NI, natural intercourse, and AI, artificial intercourse , reports The Sun.
Single Joe, who uses a pseudonym, has travelled across America, Argentina, Italy, Singapore, The Philippines and the UK donating his sperm.
But despite being busy in the bedroom, Joe, who is not paid for his services, says he struggles to find a girlfriend after getting divorced five years ago.
He explained: “I am still single. It’s very hard to find someone who can tolerate this lifestyle.
“People say they can handle it, but it makes people very jealous.
“A woman wants a man to devote themselves to their child – and I’ve got so many of them.”
Joe refers to himself as the “angel of the north”, for helping women who can’t naturally conceive to fulfil their dreams.
A donor shortage, coupled with the high cost of going private – as much as $4000 for a single artificial insemination (AI) cycle using donor sperm, or $10,000 for IVF – has pushed thousands of women to find help through social media.
According to the UK’s National Health Service, one in seven couples may have difficulty conceiving.
More than eight out of 10 couples, where the woman is under 40, will conceive naturally within a year if they have regular unprotected sex (every two or three days).
He said: “People contact me on Facebook or Instagram or email me and ask me for help and I usually will ask them about their period.
“I use the start date for all my calculations and I put that in my calculator and then we work out a date to meet and we discuss exactly how they want to go about doing it.
“For some people the natural insemination is the most effective but some people are in a relationship where they feel that might cause trouble, so they prefer to do an artificial insemination.
“I help people all over the UK. Right now I have a couple of women who are pregnant because I sent them my sperm by overnight courier.
“So I got those women pregnant without ever meeting them.
“Out of my 180 kids I have met more than 60. There are some kids that I meet on a daily basis and there are some that I often talk with on WhatsApp.”
In general, experts warn against going to unlicensed sperm donors due to the associated health, legal and ethical caveats.
“If arrangements are made outside of the clinic environment, there can be medical and legal risks; for example, without the proper consents in place, the donor is likely to be seen as the legal parent, with all the rights and responsibilities that involves,” said a spokesperson for the UK-based Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority. “Clinics will also rigorously test all donors for medical and hereditary illnesses.”
The organisation added, “That’s why we always encourage sperm donors and patients to go to a licensed clinic, where these medical and legal issues are taken care of for them, and where the welfare of the child is always of primary concern.”
In fact, some critics have accused Joe of jeopardising the health and safety of women and their potential children.
“He’s really playing the role of God, and he shouldn’t be playing the role of God towards desperate women and their kids,” family and fertility expert and lawyer Stephen Page told Australian 60 Minutes in 2019.
“I just think he’s mad, and dangerous, and these women shouldn’t be going anywhere near him.”
