And given events today, this seems like a good topic.

Answers to the poll are unviewable by anyone except myself. The comments are all screened. Say yes at the end of your comment if you want it unscreened.

Forgetting that you were risking catching an STD, if you answered 'yes' to the previous question, you were also risking a pregnancy - one for which you would have been financially responsible. What do you think about that?

Ok... hadn't thought of it that way.

I was prepared to take the risk.
0(0.0%)
Actually, I found out later I was a father.
1(8.3%)
Well, she said she was on the pill (but of course if she wasn't or didn't take it regularly, I wasn't to know)
1(8.3%)
I know she was on the pill, dammit!
0(0.0%)
Ok... nervous now...
0(0.0%)
When you put it that way, why am I worried about donating?
0(0.0%)
I answered no to the previous question, but I didn't want to be left out.

Woman, sex with another woman, totally hot, huh?

Any other thoughts/comments on the topic of sperm donation before the traditional Doctor Who question?

Do you think the daleks would be for or against sperm donation?

The dalek race must be kept pure. Lesser beings may not have access to the Seed of the Daleks!
14(53.8%)
Inseminate!
8(30.8%)
Either way - Ew!
4(15.4%)

While I have no problems with my parter donating (if he decided he wanted to) my preference would be for us to have our kid(s) first. If it happened the other way around, so be it ;)

yes.

Just another way in which you rock :)

I can understand the preference, but then again, is it that different to getting involved with someone who has kids from a previous relationship? Other than the fact he wouldn't know about these kids until much later, nor would there be any responsibilities.

I think I've said it before, I've got first dibs on Drhoz's sperm, but after that I'm ok with him donating.

Oh damnit.

Well it won't let me edit the other comment, so just pretend there's a 'yes' on the end of that one. *shakes fist at the LJ*

Oh, AND it wouldn't let me add 'reply this' to the other one too. *screams*
