Varsity students making fast bucks with sperm donation
UNIVERSITY students in Guang Dong, China are making fast money by donating their sperm, Sin Chew Daily reported.
Some students donated their sperm as they needed the money to buy new handphones and laptops, it reported.
Each successful donor would be given 300 yuan (about RM140) each time, and they would have to donate 10 times. Donation is done every five to 10 days.
In total, they would be given about RM1,385 during the whole period, and the amount was about the same as the university scholarship for a year.
According to the report, 95% of the donors were university students or graduates, mostly those with Masters and doctorate degrees.
