Agent and Corporate Superfuture Sex and Reproduction

Post  Hugo on Sun Sep 15, 2013 10:59 pm

In terms of reproductive freedom, the future is a great place to be... Provided you have the money to afford access to the amazing advances in sexual health technology.

One important fact to note is a basic agent cannot produce offspring in the traditional manner in their unmodified state. There are a few reasons for this:
  • The drugs agents require prevent a fertilized egg from implanting or developing in a natural or synthetic uterus. R-Drug allows for fantastic growth of damaged tissue, but it does so by allowing medicines and time to repair without scarring the 'original genetic form' of an agent. This drug disrupts the natural building process of cellular reproduction in a fetus; the placental barrier can protect a potential child, but the body may attack it as something foreign, and the smallest amount of damage to the placenta can cause the agents body to kill any progeny DNA inside. The easiest fix for this is merely no longer taking R-Drug; doing so means an agent heals as a normal person and using a medpack would produce intense scarring, but by removing the accelerated genetic effects of R-Drug, a child can be carried to term without being aborted by the body's modified processes with little risk of its genetic material being consumed by its parent.
  • Histonamide, the clotting drug, can pose similar issues. Though not as devastating as R-Drug, histonamide can cause clotting in the placenta and fetal tissue, resulting in damage to the fetus. Again, the fix for this is to stop talking the drug, but it means an agent will clot as poorly as a normal person, meaning mashing wounds are much easier to sustain.
  • Atrophic DNA is a change to the basic DNA of an agent. All residual and "dead" biological materials, such as shed hair, skill cells, and dried blood lose their genetic material in less than ten minutes. Semen falls under this category, since as soon as it leaves the body, to begins to rapidly degrade. It is no longer considered "alive", and ten minutes after ejaculation, the sperm will lose all their genetic material, making it impossible for them to produce viable offspring, even if they are still motile and can make it to an egg. Since it almost always takes hours to days for semen to find their way to the egg in traditional p-in-v sex, the chances of an agent impregnating even a non-augmented person are statistically insignificant.
  • Pregnancy being difficult for basic agents it intentional. In order to carry a fetus to term, agents need to forfeit up to 9 months of active duty, and become much more fragile in order to do so. This is not something corporations like in their precious agent resources. Some of the genetic code used to make them super-human may be proprietary, and corporations don't like even a risk of their hard-earned genes being copied for free. If an agent decides to keep a pregnancy, they are required to tell their parent corporation. A parent must sign a waiver, which varies by corp, that may mean their child will be genetically modified in utero in addition to other penalties. Cheaper companies with less copyrighted DNA may be fired or forced to take leave without payment. Agents can attempt to hide pregnancies from their parent corporation, but as literal tools owned by the corporation, punishment would likely be severe, such as rank loss, demotion, pay cuts, firing, or more.


For those who produce semen, there is an easy bionetic that adds Compound H to the seminal fluid. Compound H, when added to any "dead" DNA, keeps it alive indefinitely.
SWIMSTRONG Seminal Protector H-Gland, by Gemini
Easy surgery
Cost: 250 credits
Time: 1 hour
Working as all other H-gland, this tiny little wetware cybernetic fits along the vas deferens of real and cybernetic organs. It is triggered during ejaculation, and mixes with the rest of the fluids to produce sperm that stays alive so long as it is not placed in a damaging location, such as a place with exposure to air.

If an agent carrying a child wishes to carry to term, in addition to not taking the agent drugs for the duration, a set of specially formulated prenatal enhancement medications can be purchased for 200 credits a month. Some suspect these drugs are overly expensive to encourage agents to not have children, and generic versions may be available through less 'reputable' dealers.

Agent Contracts

In addition to the above, it should be noted that most Corporations make agents sign a contract that states they will not seek to give birth during their time in service, or allow any duties as a guardian interfere with their duties. Oracle is an exception to this, since CEO Lee cares so much about reproductive rights.
