Me? A baby? Babies were for people with stable lives. Even my relationship with my debit card is toxic. But then I did it. And it changed everything."With Spermhood, author and comedian Mike Albo (The Underminer, The Junket) gives a heartfelt, naked, and completely hilarious account of the year he spent trying to make a baby with his friends, a lesbian couple. Month by month, clinic by clinic, Albo must confront his fears, revisit his past, and decide what being a “dad” really means — all while trying to get aroused by terrible straight porn. Exploring the insanity of modern digital dating, the strangely efficient reproductive industry, and the lingering shadow of AIDS for gay men, Spermhood is a funny, insightful, and enterprising look at what it takes to be a father.

Spermhood: Diary of a Donor (Kindle Single) Reviews
Love Everything About This BookThe raunchy and the adorable mixed together in the mind of this beautiful person is wonderful to read. What a great story. After reading this book all I can hope for Mike is a life filled with happiness which I think he will have. I hope he makes all the money in his future writings.
Mike Albo is one of my favorite writers, not to mention also being a wonderful performer and comic artist in New York. His latest treat, which I devoured like a greedy cum pig, is "Spermhood: Diary of a Donor" (and yes, that metaphor is fully intended to be as pornographic/ridiculous as possible). Once again, Albo delivers a tasty read that is chock-full of hilarious moments peppered with honest insight. "Spermhood" details his diary of donating sperm to help two lesbian friends have a baby. Albo's recounting of this time in his life is touching, unguarded, unflinching, smart, and super funny. Being an "older" gay male who lives in Brooklyn myself, I could identify with so much of his life; of course, it may help that I know Mike personally. He's just as charming in person as he is in print. Please do yourself a favor and read his diary - like Albo's realization at the end of this journey, you won't regret it either.And if you want to read more of his work, please do yourself a favor and check out "Hornito." It's one of my favorite books ever.
I love weird topics, so of course when this popped up in my KU, I had to give it a try. I found the author off-putting and annoying, though, so although I did find the subject interesting, I just barely managed to slog through it.
Good quick readIt was a nice short read that didn't require a ton of thought. I enjoyed the insights provided into the world of same sex couples conceiving from the donors perspective. The typos killed me though.
Ok readNot as funny as I had hoped it would be. However it is a fast read and is believable. Nice ending
Funny and entertainingHe gives a good perspective on being a sperm donor and is a very funny writer at times and serious when needed to be.
It was cute, I guess.
