The world’s largest sperm bank is telling redheads to keep their semen.
Demand for ginger-haired donors is so low that Cryos International says they needn’t bother donating.
“There are too many redheads in relation to demand,” Ole Schou, the director of Cryos, told the Danish newspaper, Ekstrabladet, according to London’s Telegraph.
Men with scarlett manes sell “like hot cakes” in Ireland, Schou said, but that’s about it.
“I do not think you choose a redhead, unless the partner – for example, the sterile male – has red hair, or because the lone woman has a preference for redheads,” he said, the Telegraph reported. “And that’s perhaps not so many, especially in the latter case.”
Men with brown hair and brown eyes are very popular, Schou noted.
Cryos ships sperm to more than 65 countries around the world, and donors can score up to $500 for their semen.
