I’m Britain’s most prolific dad with 160 kids but I’ll be lucky to get a pair of socks on Father’s Day 0 47

A DAD who has fathered more than 160 kids has told how he will be lucky if he gets a pair of socks for Father’s Day.

Sperm Donor Joe, 51, has had sex with nearly 200 women and has even got some pregnant without ever meeting them.

He impregnates women that he meets online by “partial intercourse” – sex without kissing or cuddling – NI, natural intercourse, and AI, artificial intercourse.

Single Joe, who uses a pseudonym, has travelled across America, Argentina, Italy, Singapore, The Philippines and the UK donating his sperm.

But despite racking up more than 160 tots, Father’s Day is a quiet affair in his household.

Joe, who is from the US but lives in the UK, told The Sun: “I’m going to be seeing one of my children on Father’s Day.

“Father’s Day is so different from Mother’s Day, because Mother’s Day is all about getting flowers and all these things but Father’s Day if you’re lucky you might get some socks.

“I’ve got 160 kids and I would consider myself lucky if I got a pair of socks or something.

“Finger’s crossed – I could do with some new pairs.

“It’s more about trying to spend a little time with your children.

“This Father’s Day I’ll probably talk to about a dozen of my children. I wouldn’t have time to talk to 160 children anyway so it works out.

“Lots of my children are in different time zones so I’ll probably end up speaking to them on different days.”

Joe refers to himself as the “angel of the north”, for helping women who can’t naturally conceive to fulfil their dreams.

After two years of Covid restrictions there has been nationwide sperm shortage, with private and NHS sperm banks across the UK running dry.

The donor shortage, coupled with the high cost of going private – as much as £2k for a single artificial insemination (AI) cycle using donor sperm, or £7k for IVF – has pushed thousands of women to find help through social media.

He said: “People contact me on Facebook or Instagram or email me and ask me for help and I usually will ask them about their period.

“I use the start date for all my calculations and I put that in my calculator and then we work out a date to meet and we discuss exactly how they want to go about doing it.

“For some people the natural insemination is the most effective but some people are in a relationship where they feel that might cause trouble, so they prefer to do an artificial insemination.

HOW DOES SPERM DONATION WORK IN THE UK?

In the UK, donation in exchange for payment is prohibited by law.

If you donate your sperm through a fertility clinic or a sperm bank, you won’t have any responsibilities or rights towards a child conceived using your semen.

However, as of April 2005, children conceived through sperm donation do have the right to ask for certain information about their donor once they reach the age of 16.

You can find the clinic that is best for you through the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority (HFEA) licensed clinic.

Every year, around 2,000 children are conceived with the help of a donor.

Donated sperm cannot be used to create more than 10 families, with no limits on the number of children born within each family.

 

“I help people all over the UK. Right now I have a couple of women who are pregnant because I sent them my sperm by overnight courier.

“So I got those women pregnant without ever meeting them.

“Out of my 160 kids I have met more than 60. There are some kids that I meet on a daily basis and there are some that I often talk with on WhatsApp.”

However, The Sun recently told how prospective mums searching for donors on social media were bombarded with texts pressuring them into sex and sent X-rated, unsolicited pictures.

One Facebook moderator warned of a “sperm mafia” where well-known donors resort to threats and blackmail when they fall out with ‘rivals’.

And vile messages are being traded on donor messaging groups with names like ‘Sperm Bandits’, where one poster brags about his sexual exploits with a lesbian woman after agreeing to help her try for a baby.

Nina Barnsley, director of the Donor Conception Network charity, says: “We’ve heard some horror stories.

“We hear of very difficult situations people have found themselves in, where they’ve been pressured into having sex at the last minute when that wasn’t what was agreed.

“Unfortunately we don’t know the scale of it because this is a very secretive world, but with some men, that is the way they work.”

WHO CAN BE SPERM DONOR IN THE UK?

According to CoParent.co.uk, donors must:

  • Be aged between 18 and 41
  • Agree to be screened for medical conditions
  • Be free from any serious medical disability or any sexually transmitted diseases
  • Be healthy and fit
  • Know and provide information about the medical history of their family (parents, grandparents, siblings and children)
  • Have no inherited disorders within their family
  • Not use any drugs
  • Agree that their ID can be released if requested by any person conceived as a result of their donations once said person reaches the age of 18
  • Provide a proof of ID (copy of their passport or driving licence)
  • Be willing to commit their time to the sperm donation process
  • Have high sperm quality (mobility, count and shape).

My bitter ex told lies to my friends about my ‘small manhood’ after I dumped her 0 40

DEAR DEIDRE: MY ex is so bitter about being dumped that she is spreading nasty rumours around our friendship group – saying I’m rubbish in bed and have a small todger.

She never complained when we were together, but last week she told the girls in our group that being with me was “like kissing a soggy lettuce leaf” and that she “literally didn’t feel a thing when we were having sex” because I’m so small.

My ex is so bitter about being dumped that she is spreading nasty rumours around our friendship group – saying I’m rubbish in bed and have a small todger

I’m 25 and she’s 24. I think part of it is jealousy.

She knows a couple of the other girls fancy me and I think she’s trying to sabotage any chance I have with them.

Not that I’m even planning anything.

She’s so insecure and has a vicious tongue on her.

I’m tempted to let each of her so-called friends know what she really says about them in private.

Even her best friend gets a nasty critique every time she posts anything on Instagram.

Her top is either too short, or her hair looks like wire, or her laugh is fake . . . it goes on and on.

I don’t regret splitting up with her but this last trick has really infuriated me.

You could maybe reply with: “Let’s just say she never complained when we were together and nor have any of my other exes.”

Your friends will soon see her behaviour for what it is – jealous insecurity.

My partner said he was on a work trip – but he was actually getting married and on his honeymoon 0 28

DEAR DEIDRE: MY partner said he was on a work trip two months ago, but he had actually got married and been on honeymoon.

Our relationship had become a bit predictable, but we still had regular sex and nice days out with our two young sons.

My partner lied about his work trip – he was really on his HONEYMOON

I’m 32 and he’s 37. Our sons are four and two.

When he returned from his “work trip” he blamed me for his cheating, saying I had let myself go and didn’t pay him enough attention.

He then told me he’d “traded up” for a better model. It didn’t stop there.

He said that his wife, who is 27, is absolutely stunning and makes him feel special.

Apparently this woman was a barmaid he’d met on a golf trip and they had been seeing each other for six months.

He told me all this, then marched upstairs and packed his games console and his clothes and drove off out of my life.

The thing is, we always talked about getting married but when we had kids there always seemed something better to spend our money on.

Mutual friends have told me he has moved into a new-build home on the other side of our small town and his wife has plenty of family money.

My sons are really missing him and I don’t even know how I feel.

Sometimes when he comes to visit the boys I beg him to come home.

But other times I’m so angry with him, I refuse to let him in.

Now he is accusing me of stopping him from seeing his children.

DEAR DEIDRE

I caught my husband snogging my sister – how am I meant to trust him again?

DEIDRE SAYS: I’m so sorry your partner ended your relationship in such a cruel way.

This man sounds selfish and immature, and quite frankly the way he has treated you is emotionally abusive.

It won’t feel like it now, but you really are better off without him.

He is behaving like he still lives in your home, by just turning up unannounced.

Tell him firmly that you would encourage a good relationship between him and your sons but he can only collect them with prior arrangement.

Start to put down your boundaries.

I’m sending you my support pack When Parents Fall Out, which you could pass to him to help explain why you need to co-operate for the future wellbeing of your children.
