Vasectomy

I don't really have anyone in my life who I can talk to about this, so it goes on WWCL.

I don't want to have kids. I like kids a lot, but I also like having time to myself. I like other people's kids, who I can send back to their parents when I don't feel like hanging out with them anymore. 'Hey friend's kids, wanna go to the zoo?' that's me. 'Hey my kids, I have to change your diaper.' that's not me.

So I've been thinking about getting a vasectomy. The thing is, I don't have sex that often. So if I got a vasectomy, would I just be kidding myself? Would I have gone through all that trouble for nothing?

Or is it like a 'If you build it, they will come.' sort of thing, where a vasectomy sends the message out into the universe that you're mature enough to make those sort of decisions, and therefor sexually desirable?

I really don't know. I also used to say to myself that I'd just get one once I become sexually active, but it's been my experience that women prefer as little sexual activity with me as possible, and to that end, I need to be ready to go at a moment's notice, right?

My whole world is so confusing. Now I'm going to go to the bathroom and take a nap.

  1. I had mine done at the end of '09. I didn't have a girlfriend at the time nor had any 'prospects' or 'fun friends.' I had the same debate but what drove me was the desire to have it done before I was 30. It's actually a good peace of mind knowing that it's been taken care of.

  2. Generally, as you might have noticed, I am totally pro-childlessness. However, if you do meet the perfect girl or whatever, you could change your mind about the whole kid thing.

    On the plus side, if you do get one, it's not really that painful and it really is easier than any other form of birth control. Just be absolutely positive you for sure don't ever want children.
