A random thought I had a few months ago, what if you gave a friend one of your testicles? What if he had a child with it? Would the child be yours or his, genetically speaking. What I'm wondering is what does the donor testicle do after it's transplanted? Does it start making recipient sperm, or does it resume making donor sperm?

Of course no one knows the answer, some deduce the answer one way or another but nothing that is concrete. In a moment of despair I wished SARS on myself so I would have a convenient opportunity to ask a doctor. Of course the assumption that a doctor would know the answer offhand to such an off the wall question might be an error on my part. I suppose I could try to Google the answer but I get the feeling the subject of testicle transplants might not be as well covered in the specific area I am wondering about.
