Donor categories

When working as a sperm donor, you can choose from the following sperm donor categories.


Being an open donor means that the recipient does not know your identity, but that the children who may result from your donation when they reach adulthood have the opportunity to be given information about your identity. The donor child, after proving that your donation has resulted, will be given your full name and last known whereabouts.


Being a closed donor means that the woman or couple who receives your donation will never know your identity. Your donation will remain anonymous forever and the children who may result from your donation will never know your identity. Once you have chosen to be a closed donor, you cannot later change your mind. It is therefore important to think carefully before making your decision.

The choice is very individual and it's up to you.

Some donors prefer to be completely anonymous. Others may feel a moral obligation towards the donor child and its right to know its genetic origins later in life and therefore choose to be an open donor. This is a choice that you, as a donor, will have to live with for the rest of your life. It is therefore important that, before becoming a donor, you have thought carefully about what feels most right for you.

It is not possible to switch between closed or open donation once you have started donating.

My job is to be a sperm donor

My job is to be a sperm donor

I think a lot about what it means to be a sperm donor.

Why did you choose to become a sperm donor?

I saw some ads online and thought it would be a flexible and manageable student job. When I spoke to the donor coordinator at Born, I realised there's another good reason to be a sperm donor: you're helping someone who needs it. I think a lot about what it means to be a sperm donor. I have chosen to be an open donor and I also think about what I will say if the children come to see me one day. If I were a donor child myself, I would expect my donor to have put some thought into it and not just donate sperm for the money.

What does being a donor mean to you?

It's a nice feeling to help someone. It's nice to think that there might be someone out there who wants a child, and now they get the chance. It makes me really happy to be able to help them. I know people who can't have children themselves and it's really hard for them. So it's great when it works.

What thoughts did you have before becoming a sperm donor?

I've thought a lot about whether I can be comfortable bringing children into the world who don't know their biological origins and whose lives I have no control over. But I myself grew up with a grandfather and without my biological father, so I know that it doesn't take blood to love someone like your father. And I trust Born to choose donor parents who have the sense and resources to give their children a good upbringing.

Why have you chosen to be an open donor?

Because I think it's a shame to bring children into the world without giving them the opportunity to get to know their biological origins. I don't want to call myself their "father", because that's a title you have to earn. I have never spoken to my biological father, but if I wanted to, I could get his contact details from my mother. Donor children should have that opportunity too.

What would you say if you were approached by donor children in the future?

It all depends on what their needs are. Maybe they just want to see my face, maybe they want to hear my life story. I'll be there with open arms, ready to answer anything they ask.

How do your family and friends feel about you being a sperm donor?

I am completely open about it. Before the interview with Born, I told my mother. She's very open, so even though it was a bit borderline for her, she thought it was great. When I tell friends, acquaintances and classmates, I'm typically met with childishness and taboo. They laugh a bit at it and might think it's a bit disgusting or embarrassing. Or they ask if I'm going to have mega kids who will see me one day. My answer is that what happens in the clinic is as natural as what happens at home. It's a nice environment where everyone is very professional.

To protect the donor's anonymity, we have chosen not to use his name in the article.
