What compels a sperm donor to donate so profusely? In 2013, a journal article by the Donor Sibling Registry identified three main motives, at least for average donors: money, generosity and the desire to pass along their DNA. “I think you have to look at No. 3, passing on their genes to have children,” said Ms. Kramer, the registry’s executive director. “Is it part of some men’s DNA to do this? What makes a man donate for six years? Ten years? If each donation can create between 4 and 24 kids, they can do the math. Why wouldn’t they think twice about this?”
