Installing a blank-firing adapter

An haiku in memoriam of my vasa deferentia:

You will be severed
Thanks for carrying my genes
Now, to shave my dudes

In case you couldn’t tell, it’s vasectomy day! We’ve decided we’re done having children.

By the way, all the literature my doc gave me on the procedure has images. In all those images, the jimmy in question is standing at attention. I don’t think that during such a procedure, that would be the case. But we can’t show flaccid ones lest we shatter our male egos. I blame the patriarchy.

    Good luck.

    When they tell you NOT to do anything strenuous for a few days afterward, be advised: DO NOT DO ANYTHING.

    You’d be amazed at the size and colors that can result from failure to follow that advice.

    Don’t ask me how I know.

    Ice, ice, baby. Good luck.

    It went quite well for me. The story is here.

  6. Jack Says:

    Maybe I was just lucky, but I went back to work on the same day with no discomfort at all. Just a little itching from the stiches. Jack.

    I don’t blame the patriarchy. I blame the healthcare industry.

    I can’t imagine pictures of flaccid members would help sales of this particular elective procedure.

    Ah, the big V. As the old commercial said, “Takes the worry out of being close”.

  10. SayUncle Says:

    There’s an awful lot of ‘don’t ask me how I know’ in here.

    Now, you just have to make sure it doesn’t go off half-cocked.

    (Bad joke, bad joke…)

    Have someone available to drive you home, you won’t feel like pressing either an accelerator, a brake pedal, or god forbid, a clutch immediately following your doctor visit.

    Don’t walk around much or any for 48 hours after.

    The doc will tell you to return for an office visit to confirm you are well and truly vasectomized. Go and let him check for any stray sperm slipping thru the clamped tubes. Even though you never never ever want to see him again, which will be the case…..

    Thankfully, I don’t have to worry about that. My girlfriend got herself spayed before we got together.
    My father got a vasectomy a couple of decades ago. Take it very easy, Unc.

  14. Linoge Says:

    Oy, best of luck with that, and here is to hoping that the recovery process is not as bad as some people are indicating it can be…

    Wow. Judging from what you read here…rubbahs don’t seem so bad. I’ve also heard that it reduces the volume of your ejaculate. Is that what they’re telling you?

    thankfully my wife has volunteered to have herself get the surgery… says that if anything ever were to happen to her, that she wouldnt want me to not be able to start another family… which i know is BS, but hey…

  17. Joe Huffman Says:

    I don’t think you could detect a reduction in volume unless you did careful measurements of a fairly long period. The “day-to-day” volume variation are going to swamp out any changes due to the lack of sperm cells.

    And I didn’t think it was a big deal (read the post I provided the link for above). So I think it is a huge improvement over all other methods.

    Chris, as for wife volunteering… my wife and I both got fixed within a few days of each other. There won’t be any accidents with anyone…
