SCIENCE & TECH: Shady firm touts weird ‘semen stealing’ $250 ‘insemination kit’

A company marketing an “at home insemination kit” on the social media platform X is encouraging women to fish used condoms out of the trash without their partner’s knowledge and then “use the collected semen” to get pregnant so as to “make him a dad without his permission.”

The company, MakeAmom, touts its $250 “semen stealing” product as a way to circumvent laws in the US that make it illegal to poke holes in condoms without the knowledge of both participants.

One of its ads on X notes that while poking holes in condoms without the knowledge of both sexual partners is illegal in most states, “stealing the condom without his knowledge” is “not illegal in any state.”

One ad shows someone poking a hole in a condom with a syringe as a cover version of the song “Sweet but Psycho” plays in the background.

In the next segment, an unidentified individual grabs a used condom out of the trash.

The ad, headlined under the caption “Not legal advice” on X, then urges users to buy a device that lets them “use the collected semen for home insemination.”

The kit, an “intracervical insemination impregnator” that claims to enable women to “conceive without intercourse,” comes with a specimen cup and a syringe.

In the ad, the user is seen taking the syringe and suctioning out sperm from a used condom.

“Depress the sperm into the vagina,” the ad instructs users. The clip then cuts to an animated illustration showing sperm swimming toward an egg.

The syringe-like contraption is selling online for $250 apiece, according to the company web site. @MakeAmom/X

The ad then cuts to a clip of a pregnant woman caressing her baby bump. It then shows several news headlines reporting on instances when authorities arrested men for poking holes in condoms.

MakeAmom boasts that the device offers “comfortable artificial insemination that mimics natural intercourse.”

The “impregnator,” which is designed for the purpose of collecting “low volume and frozen sperm,” requires the user to absorb a specimen of semen and then inject it into the appropriate areas so as to “bring sperm closer to the egg” — a purportedly more effective method than regular intercourse.

The company also sells a “fertility boost supplement” though it warns that one of the side effects of “increasing fertility” is a “wildly high libido.”

The company’s web site, which lists an address in Brownsville, Texas, touts the kit as a cheap alternative to other fertility methods.

“An average round of IUI (intrauterine insemination) ranges from $2,000USD and up, IVF averages $10,000 per attempt. MakeAmom costs you a fraction of that & you only need to buy it once!” the site notes.

The Post has sought comment from the firm.

X has declined to comment.
