Who’s your daddy, er, mommy, er. . . (Leh 300)

Here’s a link to the ongoing discussion on XX Factor (the DoubleX blog) on surrogacy.

ScienceDaily is a daily news consolidator of, well, science news. Here’s a link to stories related to fertility. Note in particular the story on the critical shortage of sperm donors in the UK—and the connection to changes in laws regarding anonymity.

One more story to illustrate the commercial angle of biomedical research.

And oh, what the hell, the link to the story on the beneficial effects (from a fertility perspective) of male masturbation. (Here’s a summary of the study on which the sory is based.)

No word on any similar benefits for females.
