A sperm donor who has fathered 78 children, and currently has 13 women pregnant, says he just 'can't say no.'
New York college professor Ari Nagel, who is 44, and also known as The Sperminator, was asked by Dr. Oz about his motivation for helping women have babies: 'Maybe I'm not good at saying no. I have a great life, even if I struggle financially. I get lots of hugs and kisses every single day. It's brought me a lot of joy seeing how happy the kids are, how happy the moms are, and seeing all these beautiful families that I was able to help grow.'
Ari said he used to conceive 'the old-fashioned way' and would have sex with the women to help them get pregnant. Now, he delivers his sperm in a 'cup' so that he is able to protect himself and the other women he'd be helping that month. The State Department of Health stepped in at one point and told him that he needed to stop advertising his services. Once he clarified what he was doing, they backed down.
He doesn’t charge for his services.
Many of the women he helps are based in the US, but others are abroad and require some travel. He said, ’I went to Africa twice last month to try and meet women to help them conceive. The month before that I was in Barbados and then Georgia, the country, not the state. The month before that I went to Russia.' Ari said some of the mothers he has helped have asked for child support, but he doesn’t have much money. With 78 children and 13 more on the way, Ari is fast approaching fatherhood of 100. Read on!
