After retiring from his career as a maths teachers, Clive decided he still wanted to make a difference to future generations.
And to do so, he drives up and down the country pleasuring himself in his bus in front of strangers’ houses – a move that has so far resulted in 65 children and another 14 on the way.
But he’s not a creep – he just gives his sperm away for free to help women have children.
Whereas sperm from a fertility clinic would usually cost around £6,000, Staffordshire-resident Clive gives his away for free.
Often spending an entire day on the road, he drives his bus to wherever he’s needed, climbs into the back and fills a syringe with his sperm, which he keeps warm under his arm until handing it over.
“I give them the syringe and will talk to them for about five to ten seconds, just make a bit of idle chit-chat. They are often nervous and it’s just a way of putting them at ease,” said Clive, who is one of four donors starring in Channel 4’s Super Sperm Donors.
While a third of his donations work first time, another third of his customers need two or three visits and others can take as many as six.
He makes on average 16 donations per month but only a couple result in a pregnancy. For those that don’t work, he always returns the next month with another syringe.
“About two thirds of the people I have helped are same-sex couples. The others are heterosexual couples and a few are single ladies. I am not strict and I do believe every lady deserves to have a baby,” he explained.
Clive had originally wanted to donate his sperm through the proper channels, but most clinics won’t take donations from men over 45 due to the increased risk of health complications like autism.
He is always open with his customers about the fact his father had a brain tumour, and provides his clear STD results upon request.
However, because he doesn’t offer his sperm through a Government-approved Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority-licensed clinic, he could still technically be considered the legal parent and charged maintenance.
He hopes that by using the bus he will put some distance between himself and the families and strengthen his argument that he really is nothing but a donor.’
“I am so proud to have fathered 79 children. I love the joy it brings. So many people say, ‘Thank you so much, Clive, you really have changed our lives,’” he explained of his motivation.
