What do you think of young men getting vasectomies?

I have a few friends who are deciding to go galt, they consider themselves to be MGTOW kinds of guys but I think they're thinking very short term. what's your opinions on this? I'm not letting a doctor near my junk for any reason whatsoever.

Do you guys have any logical insights as to why they wish to do this or can you identify the errors in their thinking? I'm not so hip on having kids myself but there are parts of my body that will not be touched outside of intercourse.

  • Well for once I wouldn't date them, because I do want children and I don't want to be with someone who doesn't.

    And also I can't relate. I think it's just stupid. Even if you can't imagne every wanting kids right now, please use your one brain cell to realize that there is an ever so slight chance that this will change. From what I know you can't really undo a vasectomy so ya it's just stupid. Most guys your age don't want kids and may think they never will, but statistically 10 year later most of them will.

    If you're older or have a couple of kids already, that's a different story

  • If you are 100% sure you don't want kids, why not? It's better than having kids left and ride and not caring if they live or die. I think your own reasons are kind of preposturous for not wanting one -- because you don't want someone to touch your d*** unless it's a chick slobbin on your knob? You'll outgrow that once you get older and realize it's just a body part, not a legend in the making ;)

  • At this point, I wouldn't mind my guy getting a vasectomy. I also realize we're still young, and we could change our minds later on. But I definitely don't see a problem with it if a man makes that person decision.

    Better than bringing unwanted children into this world.

  • I think it is a very good idea. What man in his right mind would want kids or marriage with today's modern woman? Women can use child support as a resource extraction out of a man, or they can have his child aborted without a second thought. Men should get snipped. Get laid as much as you want, get snipped. If you ever want kids in the future, adopt them on your own terms, don't let women control you.

  • I have a vasectomy.

    And three kids.

    I think its a mistake on their part.

    • Does it hurt?

  • i think it's good,there are always other ways to get kids. at least if they do stick with not having kids they won't have to worry about surprise pregnancies.

  • If you're friends are dumb enough to get a vasectomy, I doubt the gene pool will miss them at all. =P

  • I'd never get one. I do not want kids, although I will not let anyone cut anything down their on principle.

  • If you are sure you don't want kids, then yes why not.

    You are a bit young though

  • Yeah if they are in the same age category as you I really think they shouldn't because someday there might be a change where they want kids or something like that. I want kids just not right now.

  • Young men getting vasectomies in my opinion aren't such a good idea, not many people want kids in their early 20s preventing that from happening now sounds like a good idea but when you're older it won't be.

  • Let me know how it turns out for them. I'm 24 and iv come extremely close to having it done. But haven't yet been able to find a doc who will do it on a young guy my age with no kids.
