Digital Storytelling and Post-Trust Online Sperm Marketing

This paper examines extended sperm donor profiles and blogs from two international sperm bank websites and reveals the post-trust, digital storytelling strategies they use to convince prospective buyers. We also identify three dimensions of post-trust digital marketing: overdetermined authenticity, consumer fantasy and loss of distinction.
