Jamaican Men to Sell Sperm? – What a Prekkay!

This morning I read a headline from The Sunday Gleaner stating that the Hugh Wynter Fertility Management Unit is considering purchasing sperm from Jamaican men to assist couples grappling with fertility issues.

I thought “What a Prekkay?”

Just imagine Jamaican men lining up to sell their sperm?

Many would stop working. Young men would refuse to continue their education for they could get around 150+ thousand dollars per month for their semen.


Men would become “cocky”, telling women everywhere how much their sperms are worth.

In short if this sperm selling business was taken at “headline value” without reading the article, a number of men would be grinning from ear to ear, thinking about dollar signs.

Some single mother probably saw the headline and shrugged, well why not? Most of them are sperm donors anyway and now someone wants to pay them. I can see her shaking her head.

But the truth is the criteria for becoming a sperm donor would exclude many Jamaican men according to Professor Joseph Frederick.

Most men who qualify as donors are university elites in great physical health and must pass a stringent genetic screening before they are elected.

The reality is less than one percent of our men would qualify.

The alcohol and marijuana abuse along with high cases of diabetes would eliminate a cross section of candidates not to mention the first degree requirement.


If the professor was only scouting for 19-39 year olds, “he would not have hand fe count donors”.

Maybe I am rushing to conclusion since most Jamaican men are afraid of anything that has to do with a blood test.

The qualification process might well deter many of our men from pursuing this new opportunity.

Which ever way, I know some brilliant, 5’11 University stalwart with a clean bill of health just found a novel way to pay his tuition fee.

The thing is that most of our men do not qualify. I am glad this is happening. University students can benefit from this. The men those institutions can fit the bill!
