Your first impression when you stumbled upon this content would be how to make money working as a sex worker. However, selling your body ‘legally’ may not in anyway mean working as a ‘sex worker.’ As we all know some countries have outlawed sex works.
So, how and where do we sell our bodies legally in order to earn more money?
It is important to note that, selling your body in this context simply means giving out some things your body produces and reproduces naturally in exchange for money. Some of these things may include, selling your sperm, hair and many more.
In his article titled: “6 Ways to Make Money Selling Your Body Legally,” the managing editor of Wealthgang, C. James, shares some weird but legal ways of selling your body to make money. To read the full publication, click here.
5 of the 6 ways suggested by C. James will be discussed here.
Selling your Breast Milk
Breast milk is a natural fluid produce by lactating mothers. Newborn babies need this natural milk for nourishment and development. However, some mothers due to some health related issues may produce insufficient breast milk. Sometimes, demise of a mother might lead to the need for ‘your’ breast milk to feed the baby.
You can earn about $1 per ounce after meeting a stringent health requirements and you are not under any form of medication and do not take alcohol.
Selling your Sperm
Recently, TheNewsBeam reported that Sweden Government announced that it is running out of sperm for assisted pregnancy.
This reveals that you can make passive income from selling your sperm. Also, it is important that you know that to sell your sperm, you must undergo some health examinations. Sperm banks pay about $70 for each donation. While healthy men has a high chance of earning $1,000 monthly.
Selling your Hair
You can also sell your hair at expensive price. James said:
… if you have thick and healthy hair that you don’t mind cutting, you can earn by selling your locks. Websites like BuyandSellHair.com and HairSellon allow you to post pictures of your hair that can attract potential customers. The good thing about these platforms is that you will be able to negotiate your price according to your preferences.
Also, eating is also another way to earn some cool funds passively. However, eating in this context is not the usual food you consume daily. It involves eating pet foods; becoming a ‘professional pet food taster.’
“In the line of weird jobs, dog food tester is definitely on the top along with dice inspectors and breath odor evaluators.
While it may not sound enticing, the salary certainly can be. Professional pet food tasters usually make $12-$15 per hour. You can earn between $34,000 – $100,00 annually. This figure surely makes the job more appetizing, even if the food isn’t,” James said.
Be a Human Lab Rat
The most weird and quite risky means of earning a living passively is volunteering to be used as a test subject by pharmaceutical industries to test the efficacy of medicines.
According to James, “because of the high risk involved in undergoing clinical tests, human volunteers are screened judiciously. The Food and Drug Administration regulates these trials to ensure that no one is harmed. Pharmaceutical companies employ FDA-approved screening methods to determine the fitness of a volunteer. On your end, you should also be careful in deciding whether you want to be a human lab rat.”
It is important to note that there are huge ways of earning a passive income by selling your body legally, however, be wary of some health implications of these means. Do consult a professional health practitioner before doing it.
