ost men have at one time of another wanted to cut off their dicks; usually after doing/saying something really stupid with it (the dick) providing the irresistible motivation. However cutting off your balls is a different story. There are guys out there who want to though, and who actually do it. This news story is about an amateur doctor who was arrested after performing his particular surgical specialty, and has apparently done it nearly 50 other times.
I like that first line, "people". Uh, I'd think they were all males, eh?
This one is weird on so many levels, I hardly know where to begin. They were sitting around afterwards, eating pie? Why pie? I mean why not, but why? The guy must have pretty good technique if the recovery time is that quick.
To the Google-mobile!
Not much luck on Google, at least at first look. It's all about punishment for sex offenders, or else the same news story linked to above. One thing I'd forgotten, that most of those Heaven's Gate cult guys had done the chop chop to themselves, before they flew to the UFO with the help of tranquilizer Jello shots.
Next site that looks to have any mention of castration is this one. And I don't see anything on that, and it looks to have icky piercing photos, though it does have plenty of piercing porn. Clits and labia and about cocks, oh my. (There are about a dozen different penis piercings, but I find the whole concept so unpleasant I can't even begin to read about it in any detail.) Tons of user stories also, if you are into that sort of thing. This one is funny.
That site has tons of stuff on castration, far more than I want to read about. A story here from/about a guy who was castrated, sort of against his will. I don't really enjoy reading it, but it's fascinating, in an abnormal psychology sort of way. He goes into various ways of self-castration, all of which will potentially make you vomit. I won't even quote them here, other than this one, which is by far the least offensive to the sensibilities.
This is the sort of thing Senators see and then decide that the Internet is nothing but smut and filth that needs to be regulated. An obvious enough site for information about castration is Eunuch.org. It's about what you'd expect.
Castration is the actual removal of the balls. It's not a vasectomy, it's a neutering. Since testicles are needed for testosterone, not just semen, you're literally un-manning yourself.
Apparently testosterone shots can get you back to normal functioning though.
If you see a point in cutting off your balls, then taking shots to enable you to do what you could do back when you had them, feel free to point it out.
Anyway, this does seem to prove that there are lots of sites with this sort of info, and that lots of guys have the thoughts. Just in case you were wondering if there were anything imaginable that some guy wasn't into sexually... The answer is, of course, "no".
I don't think my castration article adequately-examines much of anything, so he's not lying about that. I also enjoy the opening to use the concept of "inadequate" in relation to castration.
I have not yet examined this new "happiness is being a Ken doll" link, but at some point I'll look it over and have something to say about that right here, and will then paste that into the castration article. That's one of the few articles that I haven't added multiple posts to, primarily since I don't have cause to talk about the subject all that often. Thank god.
I'm assuming the guy must have some huge self-hatred issue. Most castration is from weird, usually gay, fantasies about having your balls tortured. Men who have them crushed or cut out (professionally or as part of S&M torture) almost always retain their penis, and with testosterone shots they can still get erections and ejaculate, though not any sperm, obviously. Sort of a case of not having your cake, but still eating it. Also, if you don't have testosterone, you lose your male appearance, to some extent. Very old people, men and women, often start to sort of look alike, descending into this stoop-shouldered, toothless, semi-alien appearance, since their gender-reinforcing hormones stop being produced.
Several people (men)
who read this update were somewhat agog over it. As one guy related to
me the next day:
By the way, may the
demons from my upcoming sleepless night haunt you mercilessly.

Hey, I put in disclaimers. You were all warned. Yes, I love it.
