'I'm a 'donorsexual,' Trent Arsenault tells Anderson Cooper.   (Facebook)

(Newser) – A 36-year-old California man who boasts he's an "organic" sperm donor and has fathered 14 children through his free donations, has never had sex, he has revealed. Silicon Valley computer security specialist Trent Arsenault tells Anderson Cooper today that he's a "donorsexual" who has committed "100% of my sexual energy for producing sperm for childless couples to have babies. So I don't have other activity outside of that." An incredulous Cooper asks: "So you do not have sex?" Arsenault responds: "I will probably be the 40-year-old virgin—except I'll have 15-plus kids."

Arsenault's free sperm bank, operated out of his home, has been ordered to shut down by the US Food and Drug Administration for possible health violations. The FDA alleges that Arsenault hasn't taken the legally required precautions to prevent the spread of communicable diseases, reports the Mercury News. Arsenault claims the FDA is opposed to his one-man shop because the sperm is "fresh" instead of frozen, and hasn't been quarantined. "I'm helping people in need," he told the Huffington Post. "I'm not running a business here." To make everything a tad weirder, Arsenault touts the importance of "abstinence" during sperm production on his website. To top that, Gawker has dubbed Arsenault an "amateur porn star" for the explicit videos he has posted of him "donating sperm" (yep, into a cup) on the web. The program airs today.

Does anyone else find this creepy? He seems way too happy about having a small army of children despite never directly touching a woman in the way to produce them.
