The discussion arose after the report, which stated that from a single donor sperm could be born 150 children, which means the distribution is likely affected gene or marriages between relatives.

In the USA there is no specific law concerning the donation of sperm, although the American Society for Reproductive Medicine recommends no more than 25 of conception from a single donor for 800 000 inhabitants. Moreover, more and more people on the site when donor clinics are looking for other parents of children, to ensure that brothers and sisters will not enter into an intimate relationship.

Couples are given limited information about the donor - height, weight, eye color, skin and hair, may also be provided with information about the biography of the donor.

This led to the fact that some sperm banks are now working only with non-anonymous donors, which is driven primarily altruism.
