I was interviewed for an hour yesterday by two journalist from Japan who are working on a feature piece for Japanese news on egg donation. The Japanese are considering expanding the egg donation ‘market’ there. Currently, altruistic donation is legal, but it is not widely practiced.

We have been working with a professor at the University of Tokyo who was able to get a grant to fund the creation of Japanese subtitles for Eggsploitation. The subtitled film is being screened at the University of Tokyo, Kurume University in Fukuoka, the Medical School at Okayama University in Tsushima-Naka, Meiji Gakuin University in Tokyo, and Ritsumaikan University in Kyoto (see the photos below).

Issues of third-party reproduction, especially egg ‘donation’ and surrogacy are pressing all around the world, and We hope the Japanese will learn from Eggsploitation.
