(Newser) – It's too late for the decision to limit the size of her family, but the octuplets mom has sworn off sex for 18 years, she tells the Sun. "I cannot maintain a social life and be a mother," said single mom Nadya Suleman, 33. "To even take one percent of every night and devote it to someone else would be wrong. I have to wait for that until my youngest has left school." The once-married mom says she hasn't had sex for eight years.

Suleman also revealed that she picked the sperm donor for all 14 of her children after meeting him in a nightclub and accompanying him to the movies once. She didn't want him for a boyfriend, however. The two talk once a year, and he never sees the children, she said.
