Log on to www.beautifulpeople.com to have 'good-looking' babies!

By Samyuktha

London, July 27 (ANI): A dating website made purely for beautiful people has created a fertility forum that aims at creating beautiful babies as a solution for parents who worry about having ugly children.

The website www.beautifulpeople.com's new project has, however, been criticised by some as narcissism gone mad.

Greg Hodge, managing director of the website, said that the Fertility Forum is 'like any charitable work.'

It was "a noble cause for those going through the difficult experience of failing to conceive," Hodge said. He also explained that the site got no payment for directing donors and recipients to professional clinics.

The forum can be accessed through the BeautifulPeople.com website, which was founded in 2002 in Denmark and now has a presence in 190 countries, although only pretty people need apply.

The people who want to join have to submit a photo for approval by their peers. Its 6,00,000 members makes it the world's largest community of beautiful people.

"It's completely democratic if you secure enough positive votes, you are accepted; if not, you are shown the door," Hodge said.

Even ugly people are now allowed to subscribe to the new forum so that they can search for attractive sperm and egg donors to ultimately improve the gene pool.

Beautiful members can post if they want to donate their genetically blessed sperm or eggs to an unattractive person or couple who wants a baby.

"Everyone, including ugly people, would like to bring good-looking children in to the world, and we can't be selfish with our attractive gene poolm," The Telegraph quoted, founder of the website, Robert Hintze as saying. (ANI)
