Although, Im sure you could find some guy whod be willing to give you his sperm during sex, most people are looking for a more clinical experience. In this case, you would have to go to a sperm bank, or sperm donation center. At a sperm bank, sperm is sold in vials that are usually good for one intrauterine insemination (IUI). However, it usually takes two or three vials per cycle attempt. The cost of a single vial of sperm varies from place to place. In addition, other ancillary services are required with an additional fee. Because of these factors, one vial of sperm ranges from $50 to $700. After the actual cost of the sperm, the next biggest expense is shipping and transportation. You cant just buy a vial of sperm and put it in your pocket, expecting it will be okay for later. Sperm is very sensitive, requiring strict temperature controls at all times. Depending on the distance, you can expect to pay upwards of $200 for transport.

Many fees can be tacked on to the bill when buying sperm:

Most sperm banks require a buyer to be consulted if they have not been consulted by their doctor. Consultation is usually $80 - $200.
If you sperm from a particular type of man, you can provide a photo and the sperm bank will try to make a match as close as possible for $50.
For sperm to be used, it must be washed and prepared first. Washed sperm is more expensive than unwashed sperm.
Detailed profiles of the sperm donor can run an extra $20.
If you find some sperm you like but dont need it right away, it costs about $200 for 6 months of storage.
