About Anonymous Father's Day – Thousands of donor-conceived people have a deep longing to know who they belong to, where they come from, and who they look like. What is it like to grow up not knowing who your father is or if you have any siblings? What is it like to find out that the man you thought was your dad is not your biological father, that your true biological father donated his sperm and is known only by a number? How does it impact your self-perception, the choices you make, and your view of life and the world?  Donor-conceived people are demanding answers to these basic questions about their origins, their lives, and their identities.

• Radar Online (1/16/2012) 36-Year-Old Virgin Fathers 14 Children.  "Donorsexual?"  "Sperminator?"

A 36-year-old man has brought new meaning to the term "virgin birth" after revealing that he has fathered 14 children -- despite never having sex.

Trent Arsenault of Fremont, California, who first hit the headlines last year for running an illegal sperm bank, appears on Tuesday's episode of Anderson, and has a sneak peak of his bombshell revelation.

"I coined this term donor sexual and I'll explain, it means 100 percent of my sexual energy is for producing sperm for childless couples to have babies," Arsenault told host Anderson Cooper.

Currently being investigated by the FDA for running his private, one-man, unregulated sperm bank, where he has donated to more than 53 couples, the tech geek confirmed that he has never had sex.

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

When the audience exploded in a round of applause, bemused Cooper responded, "Why are you all applauding? I'm not sure what the applause line on that is."

Later in the show, Arsenault came face-to-face with one of his biological children, two-year-old daughter, Analise, for the first time.

"It's a thrill," to meet her, he said. "I'm trying to not get too emotional. I'm just extremely happy that she's healthy and in a loving home. I hope she has the gene of compassion and that her parents nurture that."

The full interview airs on Anderson on Tuesday. You can watch a video clip right here on
