A California-based fertility company is offering prospective parents a range of celebrity ‘look-a-like’ sperm donors. Cryobank, which is also planning to offer services in New York, allows customers to search through a database according to characteristics such as ethnicity and eye colour without revealing donors’ photographs. In addition, the company has now added features that resemble celebrities such as David Beckham and David Blaine. Cryobank’s introduction on its website reads: ‘Have you ever wondered if your favorite donor looks like anyone famous? You know how tall he is and his hair and eye color, but wouldn’t it be great to have an idea of what he really LOOKS like? Now you can find out with a click of your mouse!’
