The Definition of Surreal

Be careful what you read online. You might come across something truly strange. Law-speak can make sex seem almost passe. From the article linked above:

But the judges agreed with the lower court's decision to dismiss fraud and theft claims against Irons.

They agreed with Irons' lawyers that she didn't steal the sperm.

"She asserts that when plaintiff 'delivered' his sperm, it was a gift — an absolute and irrevocable transfer of title to property from a donor to a donee," the decision said. "There was no agreement that the original deposit would be returned upon request."

When is there EVER an "agreement that the original returned upon request"?

You've really got to get the whole story to understand how freaky this whole thing is. Both...uh..."participants" were doctors, and she was married to another doctor at the time. The "participants" never had intercourse, but she "acquired" his sperm and impregnated herself with it. DNA tests proved that the child was his.
