Times are tough, and people are having to pinch pennies because of our shattering economy; some are even choosing to sell their personal possessions to help pay the bills.
In extreme situations, though, people are resorting to selling products from their bodies, including blood plasma, hair, eggs, and sperm — apparently it's a way to make quick cash. A shot of sperm can earn a guy $60 to $100, and for fertile eggs, a woman can make up to $7,000 per egg! I guess this idea is sounding pretty good to some, because sperm banks have reported that donations have tripled from 50 to 150 a month, and egg donations have increased by 30 percent.
Of course you have to meet strict criteria and pass rigorous testing in order to sell your precious goods, but if you could, would you give up your sperm or eggs to make some dough?
