NEW DELHI - An 88-year-old Indian farmer, who has never heard of viagra, became the father of a baby boy and has sex daily and wants more kids, The Times of India reported on Tuesday.

"I don't want to live to 100 but, as long as I live, I should be able to enjoy sex," Virmaram Jat, who lives in a village in the Barmer district in the western desert sate of Rajasthan, was quoted in the newspaper as saying.

The prosperous farmer, with a flowing white beard and a weather-beaten face, says he takes long walks everyday and has been drinking fresh camel milk since childhood.

The paper reported his latest wife -- his third -- is 45 years younger than him and delivered male twins last month, but only one boy survived.

But Jat celebrated the birth of the surviving son with a feast for villagers and said he will try for more children.

The octogenarian, who is a vegetarian and has never smoked cigarettes or drunk alcohol, is ready to share his knowledge with others.

"I do it daily and the best time for intercourse is between 2:00 a.m. and 4:00 a.m.," Jat, whose first wife, 85, still lives with him and his new wife, told the newspaper.
