Friend's dh going on about how it s not "proper" sperm. QUite harumphy and indignant.

That is so disappointing. Now my fantasy will never come true.

What is your fantasy?

So, they need an embryo (and a male embryo at that) to create sperm cells? Not exactly the world's most efficient process, then, given that you need sperm to create the embryo in the first place. It seems to amount to turning sperm into fewer and crapper sperm...

Yes but can they erect shelves? grin

That men are only needed for hanky-panky and machines do everything else. Men are kept in cages (big enough for them to roam around a bit) and are brought out when required for impregnation. Actually, it wasn't exactly a fantasy but a rather disturbing view of the future. Or it might have been an idea for a short story or something. Anyway, if we can make sperm then I guess they'll have to stay in their cages and just come out when a jar needs opening.grin

Or to catch a spider, Jux.

Ah yes, that is far more important. But in that future spiders behave properly and keep away.grin
