Sperm Bank to Redheads: Keep Your Semen to Yourself


Cryos, a Danish network of sperm banks with clinics around the world, has stopped taking donations from men with red hair. The Telegraph reports that there is a low demand internationally for redheaded sperm donors. Cryos has received more donations recently than ever before, allowing them to be pickier than usual. Don’t worry, redheads, you can still masturbate for fun.

Ole Schou, Cryos’s director, told Danish newspaper Ekstrablade, “There are too many redheads in relation to demand. I do not think you choose a redhead, unless the partner — for example, the sterile male — has red hair, or because the lone woman has a preference for redheads. And that’s perhaps not so many, especially in the latter case.” According to Schlou, the only nation where sperm from redheads is in demand is Ireland.

Cyros’ stores have reached their limit — a healthy 70 liters at each clinic — and there is a 600-person waiting list to donate.

Redheads need not apply.
