A man known as the 'Sperminator' has fathered 77 children, donating his sperm to dozens of women who want a child of their own.
Ari Nagel, from New York, says he loves helping people and has a 'great life', even if he's not doing great financially.
Speaking on The Dr. Oz Show, the 44-year-old was asked about his motivation for donating his sperm so consistently and to so many people.
Denying there was any sense of 'playing God', the college professor said: "No. Maybe I'm not good at saying no.
"I would describe myself that way, but definitely not. I have a great life, even if I struggle financially. I get lots of hugs and kisses every single day."
He added: "I think the motivation of why I help these women, in some ways... why does anyone have kids? I think in some ways I'm getting a lot of the joy and love that a lot of other parents experience."
Ari revealed that he used to actually have sex with women to help them conceive but now uses a 'cup' in order to protect himself and the women involved.
The prolific nature of his donations, however, have seen him contacted by the State Department of Health.
He said: "Well, they wrote me that letter, certified, it went to my work.
"I think they just read an article in the New York Post and they said, 'What's going on here? He needs to apply to be a licensed clinic,' and that I need to stop advertising my services.
"But in the end, I think when I clarified what I'm actually doing, it's ultimately an infringement on every man's right, I think, to have a child.
"I think that they did back down, they said they reserve the right to pursue legal action in the future, but for now, I can continue doing what I'm doing, because of course, I'm not operating a licensed sperm bank."
Discussing how and why he began donating his sperm, Ari said it just 'brought him lots of joy'.
"I have two 12-year-old kids and I think it's quite indicative of maybe the women that you have here on the show today," he told Dr Oz.
"One was a lesbian couple and they needed help, obviously, to grow their family, and then the other one was a single woman who wasn't meeting Mr. Right. She was in her 40s and she needed help and she couldn't wait any longer to meet somebody.
"Then you asked me why I'm helping them.
"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."
Last year, an Aussie sperm donor who claims to have fathered around 50 kids said he has no plans to 'retire' despite turning 72.
