Online sperm donation: Public involvement opportunity
A major study at Leeds Beckett University, led by Dr Tamara Turner-Moore, has been launched to better understand online sperm donation, including the experiences of people who use websites and social media to source sperm to become pregnant.
The research has two aims:
First, we want to explore who and what influences sperm donation journeys and how;
Then, we would like to explore the imagined ideal futures of those involved in online sperm donation and work with them to facilitate personal, professional, and social change.
We are inviting people who have experience of using websites or social media to source sperm to become pregnant to be part of a Public Involvement Group that helps to advise us on the project. You will be invited to share your views and perspectives on the research project that we are hoping to undertake, advising us on all aspects of the project. You might also have the opportunity to work with the research team to co-facilitate research workshops, interpret the research findings, and present the research findings.
