Trent Arsenault, Prolific Sperm Donor, Is a 36-Year-Old Virgin Pleasing Women Everywhere

No score here, ladies.

As if the story about Trent Arsenault -- the Bay Area's unstoppable Sperminator -- couldn't get more bizarre. To gasps, laughter, and applause from the studio audience on Anderson Cooper's talk show, Arsenault, who has donated his seed for 14 children through his website TrentDonor, revealed that he is really a virgin.

"I'll probably be the 40-year-old virgin, except I'll have 15-plus kids," he told Cooper.

So the only thing Arsenault is making love to is a petri dish.

This bit comes as a surprise not only because Arsenault is 36 years old, but because of his recorded sexual activity -- featuring himself ejaculating in several NSFW online videos, which he claims are not porn, but documenting being a "donorsexual," the term he's coined for someone who expresses their sexuality through sperm donation.

SF Weekly called him to get a few more details on his sex life, or lack thereof. Arsenault said that the videos are how he expresses his sexuality. "So much of my sexuality is suppressed as a donorsexual since I'm not having intercourse, so those videos are how I've coped with my

sex drive."

Arsenault says, "I know it sounds strange, but I've decided I'd rather be a servant to others rather than be served."


that there haven't been plenty of women knocking down his door for sex. "I've kind

of had women chasing me all my life," Arsenault told us. "I decided a long time ago I'm not

going to get hitched. I didn't want to reject all the girls

who were interested in me.... I wanted to please everybody, so [becoming a

donorsexual] was my way of handling that, instead of denying myself to


In short, there's plenty of Arsenault to go around.


says, at this point, he doesn't even want to be in a relationship with a

woman, because he assumes any girlfriend would force him to stop being a

sperm donor or cut off contact with the families he's already helped.


also why he won't donate sperm to single women. "I had a couple problems where

single women saw this as a quest to find a father for their child, and I

think that doesn't represent what I'm trying to do as a father. I

donated to one woman in Marin County and the next day, I got a marriage

proposal from her."

So there you have it: You can have his spunk, ladies,

but you can't have his heart.

  • 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.'"
