The newest installment of Style Exposed explores the emotional, uncharted and unregulated world of sperm donors and their offspring.

In this provocative documentary, you'll get to know Ben—a man who learns his donation has produced more than 74 children (with more on the way)—and two half-sisters from different parts of the country who are meeting face-to-face for the first time.

Ben also admits that 15-20 of his biological children have made an effort to contact him:

Belinda: "... I now believe there is a reason God designed children to have 2 parents."
