Excerpts:

“Some men have this very strange identification with their sperm”

…When taken to a criminal extent, nowhere was this impulse more apparent than in a recent New York Times report on fertility doctors impregnating unwitting female patients with their own sperm, rather than that of a donor.

Due to the relative lack of regulation in the fertility industry, it wasn’t until the advent of DNA tests that many children of these patients discovered their true parentage, resulting in many patients feeling traumatized and violated; one Texas legislator aiming to introduce a bill prohibiting fertility fraud likened the actions of these men to rape.

The piece provided shocking detail on how specialists were able to get away with doing this for years, often fathering dozens of children in the process.

Yet it focused relatively little on why men would actually be driven to impregnate dozens of women with their own sperm, totally without their patients’ consent.

While one law professor quoted in the piece said that some of these cases of medical malfeasance could be attributed to financial incentive, with doctors hoping to increase the odds of successful implantation with their own sperm, she said many of the doctors likely “had power reasons for doing this — mental health issues, narcissistic issues.”

Another way to look at it is that the desire to “spread one’s seed” is not so much inherently biological, but a natural extension of a patriarchal culture that has traditionally upheld male virility and sexual aggression above all else, posits sex therapist and Harvey Institute co founder Douglas Braun-Harvey.

Procreation is “a way men have been able to have power for thousands of years on this planet. The patriarchy, the male line — it’s steeped in culture and history and civilization,” he tellsRolling Stone. “Human behavior inevitably becomes eroticized. We have these fetishes because patriarchy exists.”

…For some men, the erotic charge of the impregnation fantasy simply stems from the taboo of unprotected sex, or the thrill of exchanging bodily fluids; for others, who harbor fantasies of, say, poking holes in condoms, or lying to their partners that they’ve had vasectomies and ejaculating inside them, it’s precisely the nonconsensual aspect that turns them on.

But Ley says he cannot stress enough that there is a world of difference between those who fantasize about nonconsensual impregnation, and those who actually do it, with the vast majority of people falling into the former category.

…And as is the case with all sexual abusers, Ley says, those lacking such traits are more likely to allow these desires to graduate into action.

Such acts have less to do with sexual gratification and more to do with “selfishness or narcissism or low empathy, low conscientiousness, some kind of antisocial traits in terms of following the rules or keeping to agreements,” says Ley.

These are the sorts of traits that drive men to commit acts like stealthing, a term used to describe men who remove condoms during sex without informing their partners.

Like other forms of sexual abuse, stealthing isn’t really about sex; the men who do it are getting off on the power and control that comes from violating fundamental tenets of consent.

Even though his impregnation scheme appeared to be neither illegal nor involving young girls and women, a similar case could be made for Epstein.

While Braun-Harvey cautions against applying an armchair diagnosis to the now-deceased convicted sex offender, he says that in light of the other horrific allegations against him, it would be impossible not to view such a scheme as connected to a larger pattern of predatory behavior.

“When you’ve got someone who’s been convicted of predatory behavior, most of their sexual activity that might seem ancillary is connected to non consensual sexual activity that is predatory,” he tells Rolling Stone.

 When viewed through this lens of mass impregnation as a form of exercising ultimate power and control, Epstein’s desire to host a breeding farm on a ranch in New Mexico is even more dark and disturbing.

Braun-Harvey says that abusers tend to organize the entirety of their sexual lives around being able to procure new victims and perpetuate their abuse, and if there’s one thing that both the Epstein and fertility fraud stories have in common, it’s that these men were able to do this undetected for so long.

Propped up by wealth, power, and authority, both Epstein and the fertility specialists were able to target dozens of girls and women and commit abuse for years without attracting notice.

“We’ve created this culture around wealth and power such that these individuals —  predominantly, males — can get away with almost anything and then we’re surprised when they engage in these acts,” says Ley. And it’s only until someone actually gets hurt — or, at the very least, takes the wrong supermarket sample — that the extent of such abuse comes to light.
