AUGUSTA. Ga.--A sperm bank that opened next door to the University of Georgia recently had so many first day student donors that it had to stop taking new applicants for two weeks.
Donald Zeh. the manager of the sperm bank which is a branch of Xytex Corp., attributes the run on his bank to easy money. Zeh said the bank pays donors $20 each, and students could make a donation every two days.
"We find we're getting a pretty good individual who has no other way of getting extra money," he says. Xytex ships the sperm as far away as Alaska, where it's used for artificial insemination.
