Is it illegal to mail semen? Not gonna do it, just trying to settle a debate.
Hello. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be happy to answer your question.

This is a very interesting question.

Would the sperm be mailed within the USA and would it be shipped between two parties who have a personal relationship?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

For the hypothetical argument, let's keep it in the US, and say the people do know eachother.

Dear Tracy,

Currently there is no prohibition for two people who have a personal relationship with each other to ship sperm to each other withing the USA, however if the sperm is being donated by one party to others, then it would be subject to FDA regulations and would have to be tested for communicable diseases, etc...before it can be legally donated.

Also, such sperm donations would fall under other local, state and federal regulations.

I wish you the best of luck!
