Trent Arsenault made national news when the U.S. Food and Drug Administration came after him last month for providing his sperm to childless couples for free through his site TrentDonor.org. The FDA “told him to stop giving away his sperm — or face a $100,000 fine or up to a year in prison — on the grounds that he’s ignoring federal regulations that require blood tests every time a person donates any kind of body tissue or fluid,” according to The San Francisco Chronicle. Until the case is settled, he’s permitted to continue giving away his sperm.
But that’s all old news. Today, the computer engineer who lives in Fremont, Calif., appeared on the Anderson Cooper talk show and revealed more of his provocative story: He’s a 36-year-old virgin.
