Women Encouraged to Collect Semen From Used Condoms 'Without Partner's Consent' to Impregnate Themselves by Insemination Company 'MakeAmom'

The artificial insemination company MakeAmom, based out of Texas, offers an insemination product that women can use from the comfort of their homes. While there are several at-home insemination companies that help with fertility issues, MakeAmom encourages women to become pregnant in a covert, unethical, and potentially illegal way. On X, formerly known as Twitter, they have an ad that encourages women to take their sex partner's condoms out of the trash, without their knowledge, and use the semen to impregnate themselves with the insemination kit!

MakeAmom's ad rhetoric says, "While poking holes in condoms without the knowledge of both sexual partners is illegal in most states, "stealing the condom without his knowledge" is "not illegal in any state." The $250 product advertisement has even more interesting verbiage, stating, "Now I'm taking condoms to conceive without his consent, turning the tables." 


According to the New York Post, one ad shows someone poking a hole in a condom with a syringe as a cover version of the song "Sweet but Psycho" plays in the background. In the next segment, an unidentified individual grabs a used condom out of the trash. The ad, headlined under the caption "Not legal advice" on X, then urges users to buy a device that lets them "use the collected semen for home insemination." The kit, an "intracervical insemination impregnator" that claims to enable women to "conceive without intercourse," comes with a specimen cup and a syringe. In the ad, the user is seen taking the syringe and suctioning out sperm from a used condom. "Depress the sperm into the vagina," the ad instructs users. The clip then cuts to an animated illustration showing sperm swimming toward an egg. The ad then cuts to a clip of a pregnant woman caressing her baby bump. It then shows several news headlines reporting on instances when authorities arrested men for poking holes in condoms. MakeAmom boasts that the device offers "comfortable artificial insemination that mimics natural intercourse."

Insemination treatments, when performed by a medical professional, range from $300- $1,000. Although several home insemination products are on the market, MakeAmom is the first to have such bizarre and brazen advertisements. Mosie Baby, another insemination brand, claims to be the first FDA-approved at-home insemination product. Insemination products can be purchased at various retailers, such as Amazon and Target.
