    So $70k a pair? That's a decent house deposit indeed

    People tell me that I've got a lot of balls doing the job I do. Wonder how much money I could make.

    Now that would make for an amazing API article! "Read about how one young man swapped a testicle for a deposit on a Logan townhouse"

    Followed by lots of posts on this forum saying 'there you are - clearly anyone can get a deposit - just sell a testicle. Easy.'

    Which would be followed by a female posting ’but what about me?'

    To which several forum members would respond 'she clearly isn't trying hard enough. If she just changed her mindset she could easily sell a testicle for a deposit!'

    Much more complicated to sell eggs.

    Actually, I suspect it is illegal to sell either in Australia.

    You could do this, but you would want it to be in a testementary trust

    I can't see it working in the traditional sense...donate, cut it off, grab cash.....rinse and repeat.


    Something unsustainable there. :eek:

    FFS ! Grow a pair. Donate one. Then for the next IP donate the other one :D
    Why do people keep saying property investment is tough.

    Tougher sacrifice than twice weekly smashed avocado sourdough, to be fair.

    Hmm; not too bad.

    After donating one, life will be a ball!
