One Queensland woman has turned to Facebook to search for a sperm donor.

The post was made in a popular community group read “MALES I NEED YOUR HELP! I’m looking for a sperm donor.”

It went on to list a specific set of qualities required from the donor which demanded the male to be “tanned, fit/athletic build with green or blue eyes”.

Speaking with The Sunshine Coast Daily, the Caloundra woman, who asked to remain anonymous, said she desperately wanted to have a baby and thought the Facebook post would be the quickest way to acquire a donor.

“I have wanted kids since I was a kid and I have wanted them really badly for the last few years and have persisted with trying to find Mr Right,” she said.

“But I haven’t had any luck and to be honest I’m over waiting.

“I put the post up as there may be guys who are willing to help but they may not know how or where to go.”

She said she had only been searching for the past month but an Australia-wide shortage of donors meant she was having trouble moving the process along.

“My issue has been finding someone on the Coast as this is going to be a costly adventure and I don’t want to be spending a lot on travel,” she said.

“Also from what I have read so far it’s better for the female to be inseminated in a comfortable place which is usually at home or through the clinic she feels comfortable at.”

  • I wonder if she intends to ask the guy for his and his parents and siblings medical hsitory


  • Yeah, that seems like it’s not a scam at all…


  • Doubt that this is the right way to go about this.


  • It’s a bit of a worry advertising for a sperm donor like this. I know I couldn’t do this but to each their own. Good luck and be very, very careful what you wish for


  • She should be very careful, don’t know that this is the way to go.


  • Wow! Now, that’s desperation for you! Personally, I really don’t think that anyone should be having babies unless they are in a relationship. It really takes two parents to raise a child. Yes, I know there are single mums out there doing a great job, but it’s certainly a lot harder and I’m not sure that people should be actively seeking it.


  • My instincts are screaming at me how bad this idea is. If she just gets his stuff and goes turkey baster method to get pregnant they are both in for a world of trouble. She can chase him for child support. He could be paedophile and get shared custody and nobody find out until the child is older and its too late. He could be psychotic and make their lives miserable. Yeah, nah. Not a good idea.


  • There are laws and regulations for a reason. This is quite a process and should be entered into only after everything has been considered and checked.


  • That sure is a way to find your perfect sperm !


  • Let’s hope she can find the donor she’s looking for. Best luck!
