Is it possible to donate a testicle for money



I am just curious because i am a over sexually active male and i have 2 boys already and i figured if my testicles work and somebody elses do not then why not donate them or sell them but I thought it was illegal to sell body parts so if i could get some good feedback that would be great


You cannot sell your testicle.  However, you can "sell" sperm to donor sperm banks.  The sperm is then used anonymously to help infertile couples conceive.  You can look for a local sperm bank online.  Also, some infertility programs run their own sperm banks.
