in vitroSome women are getting creative trying to make some quick cash in these troubled times: they’re trying to sell their eggs to fertility clinics. Inquiries to one fertility clinic in Illinois, for example, were up 40% in 2008. It sure beats stripping, but according to one clinic only 5-7% of potential egg donors are actually accepted. Egg donations may seem like an easy way to make big bucks, but actual payouts are often far less than the rumored $10,000, averaging $4,200 nationwide. Plus you need to go through a full background check, as well as medical, psychological and genetic tests.

Guys can still make a quick $60 for a visit to the local sperm bank, but surprisingly reports indicate no significant increase in donations.
