Sperm Wars: The Game
June 13, 2003 9:49 AM   Subscribe

Sperm Wars: Extreme sporting's next generation may well be Exo-biotic. What could be first manifestation in this new realm of sport? Taking into account such factors as: simplicity of contest design, ease of sample collection, lots of visible action, and abundant human male competitiveness, the most logical and economic choice would be a sperm competition.

Any volunteers? What do you think the next "extreme" sport will be?

suspicious that the link may be NSFW, I'm not going there, but this sounds like something that has been going on in Japan for a while, competitions among men to see who could produce the most DNA in a specified number of hours. Saw a doc on Discovery about it a few years ago. Or maybe it was HBO's Real Sex.

Is this like the Fox Network version of a Circle Jerk?

Oops, forgot to mention that the link is safe for work. It's mostly text, with a few photos of sperm. Basically, a sperm sample is put under a microscope and the results are shown on a TV screen or projector, and different samples are compared to see whose sperm is more active, I think. It's kind of bio-art project meets gaming.

So this is proposing a televized soggy-biscuit contest?

The guy seems to have thought a pretty detailed plan for how to make money, develop the business. Theme parks even!

Oh, I assumed they were going for distance.

Next extreme sport: travelling rings. It's so extreme it's not even on the net yet.

I entered a sperm producing contest once. I finished first, third, and ninth. I am a tough competitor...

Here it is:

One woman, 5 men, one night. Whoever impregnates her is the winner!

Shall I patent this idea now?

Oh, and just in case it wasn't clear... They each have sex with her (one at a time, of course).
