Sperm race TV show launched in Germany


A new reality TV show has been launched in Germany to find the man with the fastest sperm.


The sperm will be attracted to the finishing line by a chemical lure identical to that emitted by the female egg in the womb.


The aim is to find Germany's most virile man in a new reality show being dubbed Sperm Race.


Twelve men, including two celebrities and a 'health freak', will take part in the show set to be aired later this year.


The show will follow the contestants as they make donations at a sperm bank. The frozen sperm will then be transported to the studio in Cologne.


Borris Brandt, 43, head of production company Endemol in Germany, rejected protests that the show was unethical, saying no human eggs would be fertilised.


"The main prize in the competition is a Porsche, not a baby. It's actually a very scientific programme and the topic of fertility is massive in Germany at the moment," he said.


The sperm will be released into a test tube in which a chemical substance will draw the fluid towards it


The winner will be pronounced by a team of doctors including a gynaecologist, an andrologist and a urologist.


Brandt added: "The programme isn't immoral. We're only testing, we're not conceiving

Wait, that's for real? That's crazy. What I can't quite understand is how it would be more than one episode long. Or would it be like 12 different episodes about each person? Otherwise, other than the fact that it's a hilarious premise, it doesn't seem like something that would be interesting to watch. But that's very...interesting.

I imagine it'd be about each person.. the process... I don't really know. Quite strange.

I maintain the "Whose your Daddy" is the worst.

Haven't seen it, but I checked out a blurb on the 'net. Hrm... yeah, it does smack of exploitation.

I would agree that WYD takes the crown for tastelessness. The sperm thing still seems more inane though. Even if the means aren't appropriate, at least something good will ultimately come of WYD. On the other show, some dude gets a Porsche for something he had no control over.

Might as well call it "Sperm Lottery".   ;)

I think they did something similar... all they guys on the show went to a sperm bank to see who had the most potent "load," ha ha. It turned out to be the midget, I believe. ;)

It was the midget... My little brothers love that show so I was forced to watch it... So gross... I forgot who was the less potent one of the bunch though... LOL... I think his name is WeeMan or something... Idiotic show but quite funny at times...

I think we all learned a lot more from late night HBO after our parents were asleep than we ever did from any birds-and-bees talk. Or maybe that was just me... ha ha ;)

When I was in about 5th grade, my mom gave me these books called the "Life Cycle Library." They were written back in the 50's and were sooooo out of date. Ha ha. Funny thing is, my mom is not they type to be shy about sex or anything. I guess it was different when I was a kid. Now I have to tell HER to shut up... I really don't wanna discuss her latest dates in that much detail. HA HA HA. ;)
