Trent Arsenault, FDA-Targeted Sperm Donor, Moonlights as Online Porn Star

We told you a few days ago about Trent Arsenault, the one-man sperm factory whose antics have been targeted as unsound by the Food and Drug Administration. Arsenault, a Silicon Valley tech worker, has set up a website in order to donate his semen to women in need.

The FDA wasn't thrilled with this set-up, and, citing the possibility of transmitting disease outside of a regulated sperm-donation setting, the agency issued Arsenault a cease-and-desist order. Well, it now appears that Arsenault could also soon face some scrutiny from recipients of his seed -- unless, of course, his baby mommies have no compunction about raising the offspring of a serial online pornographer.

Adrian Chen at Gawker reports that Arsenault is "turning his 'donations' into a torrent of amateur porn," posting videos of himself masturbating into cups and "using unusual aids like a water polo ball and frozen packs of organic blueberries." (Here are some NSFW places to view the Arsenault porn œuvre.)

Arsenault tells Gawker that he is a "donorsexual," whose exhibitionist tendencies aid the cause of impregnating childless women. "Having those videos helps my sex drive ... which is critical to being a guy with a 200 sperm count able to help three childless couples in one month get pregnant," he said to Chen in an interview.

Arsenault's clients might have benefited from his donorsexual drive. But will they want to raise donorsexuals themselves?

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
