Trent Arsenault has fathered 14 kids, but has never known the joys of intimacy.
Yes, this self-proclaimed "donorsexual" is a 36-year-old virgin despite his impressive success at reproducing.
Arsenault, a Silicon Valley computer security specialist, told an incredulous Anderson Cooper that he has never had a sex partner and feels it's his duty to the couples who use his sperm not to deplete the supply.
"I've committed 100 percent of my sexual energy for producing sperm for childless couples to have babies. So I don't have other activity outside of that," he said, adding that he will probably be a 40-year-old virgin with 15 kids, according to Newser.com.
Arsenault doesn't charge for his baby batter, but his unconventional methods have spurred the Food and Drug Administration to issue a cease-and-desist order, the San Jose Mercury News reports.
The FDA alleges that Arsenault did not take the legally required precautions to prevent the spread of communicable diseases.
Although Arsenault has attracted sympathy from various people who believe the FDA's edict sets a dangerous precedent, other activities of his have aroused controversy, such as the 100-plus videos he has posted online showing him masturbating with unusual aids such as a water polo ball and frozen packs of organic blueberries.
Regardless of what happens, Arsenault may believe the end result justifies the means, especially after he met one of his donor children for the first time at the taping for "Anderson."
"I'm trying not to get too emotional," he told Radar Online. "I'm just extremely happy that she's healthy and in a loving home. I hope she has the gene of compassion and her parents nurture that."
State child welfare officials said Saturday they are investigating a report that a Lake County woman brought her 5-year-old son with her while she accompanied her boyfriend on a bank robbery.
Lauri L. Ruble, of Antioch, and Brandon Stancliff have been charged in federal court with robbing Wauconda Community Bank in Island Lake on Dec. 29. Ruble was ordered released on $5,000 bail Thursday.
Ruble allegedly told the FBI she was upset with herself for putting her son in danger. The Illinois Department of Children and Family Services is investigating allegations of abuse and neglect against the couple, a spokesman said.
The spokesman said he could not comment on the boy’s status.
Ruble allegedly told the FBI that Stancliff grabbed a bandana and butcher knife from her kitchen and they both left her home with her son to rob the bank. She put her son in a car seat and they drove to the bank, she said.
Ruble went into the bank asking whether there was a change-counting machine — a ruse to learn how many tellers were there, according to an FBI affidavit. Stancliff then went into the bank with the orange bandana covering his tattooed face, authorities said. He allegedly displayed the knife, demanded money and fled with $4,800. An informant seeking a reward identified Ruble and Stancliff as the suspects, the FBI said. They were arrested Dec. 30.
It wasn’t the first time a woman allegedly brought a child with her to a robbery in the Chicago area. In 2007, Lyndsey Tucker was charged with robbing a Lake in the Hills bank with a knife while her 4-year-old daughter sat in the SUV she was driving. Tucker was sentenced to 53 months in prison.
A man goes to see the Rabbi. "Rabbi, something terrible is happening and I have to talk to you about it."
The Rabbi asked, "What's wrong?"
The man replied, "My wife is poisoning me."
The Rabbi, very surprised by this, asks, "How can that be?"
The man then pleads, "I'm telling you, I'm certain she's poisoning me, what should I do?"
The Rabbi then offers, "Tell you what. Let me talk to her, I'll see what I can find out and I'll let you know."
A week later the Rabbi calls the man and says, "Well, I spoke to your wife. I spoke to her on the phone for three hours. You want my advice?"
The man said "yes", and the Rabbi replied, "Take the poison."
Wingsuit flyer Jeb Corliss crashed into Table Mountain in South Africa on Monday morning. He survived, but broke both legs.
Corliss, one of the best BASE jumpers in the world, was being filmed by HBO when the accident happened. Jeb reportedly leaped safely from Table Mountain when he was either blown off course by a gust of wind, or got too close to the mountain.
It was his second jump from the Cape Town landmark. After the first one, he posted this picture on his Facebook wall, with a caption: “How low can you go :) Table mountain day two :)”
A Table Mountain spokesperson said Corliss was lucky to be alive after he fell more than 200 feet before hitting the rocks. He managed to release his emergency chute, otherwise he’d be dead.
He was recovered by air ambulance and taken to a private hospital, where he was admitted to intensive care. A spokesman for the hospital said that he remained in good spirits, and instructed her to tell well-wishers: “I feel the best I ever have.”
This video, shot from a distant angle, shows what happened. Corliss is wearing a black suit, cameraman Jeff Nebelkopf is in blue:

Our teacher asked what my favorite animal was, and I said, "Fried chicken." She said I wasn't funny, but she couldn't have been right, because everyone else laughed. My parents told me to always tell the truth. I did. Fried chicken is my favorite animal. I told my dad what happened, and he said my teacher was probably a member of PETA. He said they love animals very much. I do, too. Especially chicken, pork and beef. Anyway, my teacher sent me to the principal's office. I told him what happened, and he laughed, too. Then he told me not to do it again.The next day in class my teacher asked me what my favorite live animal was. I told her it was chicken. She asked me why, so I told her it was because you could make them into fried chicken.She sent me back to the principal's office. He laughed, and told me not to do it again. I don't understand. My parents taught me to be honest, but my teacher doesn't like it when I am.Today, my teacher asked us to tell her what famous person we admire most. I told her, "Colonel Sanders." Guess where I am now...
