Spermworld, directed by Emmy-winning filmmaker Sarah Johnson, delves into the complex world of sperm donation, shedding light on the experiences of both donors and recipients in an era where technology, social media, and changing societal norms have transformed the landscape of reproductive assistance. The film offers a view of the motivations, challenges, and ethical dilemmas inherent in sperm donation.

The documentary follows several individuals involved in sperm donation, from the donors themselves to the families seeking to conceive with donor sperm. Spermworld captures the emotional highs and lows of this process, covering issues of identity, family, and the intersection of biology and technology. But what questions does this film raise? Is it the avoidance, at times, of medical and psychological screening? Are recipients accepting the sperm of these donors based on a prayer to satisfy their primal desire to have a baby?

One of the most striking and nerve-racking aspects of Spermworld is its exposure of social media as the mode by which donors and recipients find each other. With the rise of social media and online forums, prospective parents can now connect with potential donors in ways that were previously unlikely or impossible. But surely this accessibility raises questions about privacy, consent, and the potential for exploitation. The documentary does a good job of navigating these complexities, and presents a nuanced portrayal of the impact of technology on the world of sperm donation.

Although Spermworld presents the true voices and experiences of the individuals involved, the film does not present enough about what can go wrong. And it fails to fully consider the children who are born through this kind of sperm donation. What about a child who has more than 50 or 100 step-siblings roaming around in the world. Does this matter? Should it matter? Sperm donation done as Spermworld presents is one means to an end, but without appropriate legal, psychological, and medical supervision, much harm may result.

As a viewer, I found Spermworld to be both informative and thought-provoking. It offers valuable insights into a topic that is often shrouded in secrecy and stigma, and allows us to discern our own views of how and why sperm donation may be valuable but also a source of ethical complexity. I found myself having both empathy and concern for those seeking a sperm donor. And I wondered about the men who donate multiple times and what drives them.

Overall, Spermworld is a must-watch for anyone interested in the intersection of technology, ethics, and reproductive rights
