Maybe if they put a knob or a button or something on there that lets you turn it on and off at will...

Geezzz it's not like you're being neutered, they leave all the equipment there, just make them non functional. It's also a lot less invasive than the procedure a woman has to have.

Re: Semi-retirement at 33?

Sigh. The fairer sex as usual misses the point.

Remember all that funny stuff about how everything a man does is to get laid? Its true. Theres not much point to it if you're "non functional".

Besides, I might decide at 70 that I want to have another one. Or two. Or three.

I hate irrevocable decisions.

Re: Semi-retirement at 33?

I think if I was the last woman on earth and Ha was the only option, I'd get out some "do it yourself" surgery books and go for the sex change...

Most of the guys in the large corp. I worked for at the time, used a black doctor for this procedure. *He had a well deserved reputation for being fast, competent, and funny.

He would only accept cash, (when the appt. gal set this up, she let you know this).

According to him, the "procedure" was the main reason he was able to keep the clinic going.
(He did an average of about 4 a day).

According to him, 90% or so were white, and jokingly (maybe), it was a labor of love.

I thought now a days you could have it done with an on/off valve installed. Or is that an urban myth.

Re: Semi-retirement at 33?

They have some valve thingy that can be opened and closed magnetically. I dont think it works so well though, last I heard sometimes it wouldnt open or would open when you didnt want to.

Swell...I walk through a metal detector and Gabe ends up with a sibling...

Of the thousands of stupid silly things I've seen you post here, this ranks right up there with the worst best.

Shooting blanks for a guy is what the pill is for a woman. No change to the fun, just no risk of paternity. There is still lots of "point" to it.

It takes a real man to step up and do the right thing when the time comes. You are still a little young, but when the time comes (no pun intended) your DW will probably offer lots of encouragement (honey, I have a headache) for you to get fixed make the world safe for democracy.

Geez, are you chronically sleep-deprived by a toddler, or being seduced out of what little brainpower/willpower remains for a bigger family?

It's about recreation, not procreation-- fertility functionality is irrelevant!

Re: Semi-retirement at 33?

Oh I can tell which two guys already said "yes" to the 'snip poll'.

Scientifically proven that men are primarily genetically driven to spread their seed.

Besides, I've seen the way the male cat and male dog look at me...

It just never ends with kids!

Your dad probably figures his heavy lifting with you is over, and now he's going to have to sit down with you and explain how this works.
