Star Light, Star Bright
(Donna’s Story)

I spot him at a party. Right away, I know he’s the one. I like his dance moves. He’s a sharp dresser. His musculature, Michelangelo would have loved. I sense he’s intelligent. He has just two glasses of beer, a plus in my book. Shows self-control.

He tells me he’s divorced with no kids, but one day would like to be a father. I explain I’m a lesbian looking for a donor. If it works out, he could be part of the child’s life, but there’d be no contact between he and I afterwards.

At first I try the turkey baster method but that doesn’t do it. The only way to get my wish is to grit my teeth and hope I don’t crack a molar. I give him a raunchy magazine to peruse and when he’s ready, I tell him to get it up, get it in and get it out. Bingo. I feel the warm liquid deep inside and I know she’ll be a girl.
