Woman accuses fertility doctor of secretly using own sperm (scandalous masturbation hobbies)

INTRO: A woman is suing a New York fertility doctor, claiming he used his own sperm to secretly impregnate multiple patients — something she said she discovered when DNA genealogy tests revealed she had at least nine half-siblings.

The lawsuit was filed Saturday by the 35-year-old daughter of a woman who got fertility treatments from Dr. Morris Wortman in Rochester in the 1980s. It said he falsely told the family the sperm donor had been a local medical student. He kept the truth a secret, the lawsuit said, even after the woman, his biological daughter, became his gynecology patient.

Wortman was with patients and unavailable for comment Tuesday, his Rochester office said. The office did not immediately respond when asked for the name of an attorney who could speak on his behalf. The case is one of more than 20 instances in recent years where fertility doctors have been accused of using their own sperm, rather than samples from anonymous donors, to treat patients... (MORE)

Having a higher number of past sexual partners is tied to greater self-esteem, especially among men (2021 Grunting Apes "Wild Oats" Sports Competition)

EXCERPTS: An analysis of data collected across 10 world regions suggests that men’s self-esteem is more strongly tied to their sexual success than women’s. The findings were published in the journal Personality and Individual Differences.

Researchers David P. Schmitt and Peter K. Jonason based the rationale for their study on the sociometer theory of self-esteem, which posits that self-esteem serves as a “gauge” that measures the extent that one is socially accepted by others. Further taking an evolutionary-adaptive approach to this theory, Schmitt and Jonason suggest that self-esteem functions as a measure of success in adaptive skills that are important for survival, like short-term mating. Success in such domains should, therefore, lead to improvements in self-esteem.

The study authors accordingly proposed that having a greater number of past sexual partners should increase self-esteem. They further reasoned that this positive link between self-esteem and number of past sexual partners should be stronger among men since greater sexual acceptance is more adaptive for men. That is, men’s ability to pass on their genes relies strongly on having a high number of sexual partners, while women’s success in passing on their genes rests on having higher quality sexual partners who will invest in offspring.

The data for the study came from the International Sexuality Description Project (ISDP) [...] In addition to various demographic measures, the questionnaires included an assessment of self-esteem and asked respondents to indicate the number of sexual partners they had in the past year...
