Now that I have your attention!..
No really, what’s up with castration these days? Here in Pittsburgh we had a case a couple months ago where 911 was called from a house. When the police got there, they found a man who was bleeding profusely from the crotch. It turns out that he was a customer, and the owner of the house has performed hundreds of castrations, with many satisfied customers. He advertised his services over the internet, and had no shortage of candidates since no self respecting doctor will perform a castration for no good reason, and it certainly isn’t covered by an HMO. Not vasectomy. Castration.
Not to mention over a year ago, here as well, there was a case where a husband talked his wife into castrating him. He got all liquored up, she did the surgery, and again 911 was called, to their trailer park. He actually ended up dying.
There are other cases I read about in reports where men are asking to be castrated all over the place. Just removing the testes. Not cutting off the penis, not just a vasectomy. Castration.
Is there something going on that I don’t know about?
What are these men hoping the final result would be?
Is there some proven or unproven medical benefit to castration?
