Outtakes from a recent assignment for The New York Times.
Portrait of Ari Nagel, 45, Owerri, Imo, Nigeria.
Mr Nagel (@cuteprofessor ), a mathematics professor at City University of New York donates his sperm to women across the world.  He sometimes meets women in public spots, such as Target stores, to hand off his sperm to them and other times travels across continents to deliver them; the reason he was visiting Owerri, Nigeria.
Mr. Nagel, who lives in Brooklyn, said he has 77 biological children, with 13 on the way. Women have flown him all over the world for his sperm, including to Israel, Southeast Asia, Ghana, Philippines, Zimbabwe and Nigeria; they pay his travel expenses, but he gives them the sperm for free. He believes his mission is to help women have babies.
