Simon Watson has been donating his sperm for 16 years and believes he has fathered over 800 children.
He claims that women give birth to his offspring at least once a week and, according to the BBC, the unofficial donor advertises the sperm on the internet, making money hand over fist as he sells each little pot of joy for just £50.
Simon is pretty damn serious about his work, telling the Daily Mail: “I would like to get the world record ever, make sure no one else is going to break it, get as many as possible.”
Simon said his friends and family know everything about his ‘work’:
I’ve got no secrets. My kid’s mates at school think it’s funny. My boys wouldn’t do it themselves, but they’ve said they don’t mind me doing it.
He has two sons aged 19 and 17 from his first marriage and a 10-year-old daughter from his second marriage, however he recently broke up with his girlfriend of three years due to the pressures of the job.
He told the BBC:
She was fed up with what I do. She actually told me she despised it. I’m always running off here and there to donate, so it must have got on her nerves.Advertisement
The 41-year-old from Luton, Bedfordshire, became a sperm donor after his first marriage broke down. At first he was an official donor but found doing it himself ‘more convenient’.
Now he advertises his ‘services’ on Facebook so he can see what people are like before agreeing the sale. In an amazing twist of irony, he said he has even turned down a couple of people who were ‘obvious nutters’. Pot, kettle, black?
Simon doesn’t usually stay in touch with buyers after their business is concluded, but he does take issue with some women who say he should provide for free:
I don’t think £50 for a pot of the magic potion is a bad price – you need to cover the costs.
To make sure his product is top quality, Simon takes good care of himself and gets tested regularly to prove he has a clean bill of health.
I’ve got no plans on stopping, as long as everything still works. I’ve got children all over the world now, and the parents are always so grateful.
You know, I’ve got a mate who looks just like him. I wonder…
