How might I go about being castrated?:

Nihilist Hippie
I've read about DIY castration and "cutters" (illegal surgeons) and legal surgery (around $3000 but hard to find) but I still don't know how best to go about it.

What about, you know, not doing that?

I'm going to say, it's a horribly bad idea to do it. But in case you're just curious and don't actually intend to do it, you could look into the methods used by livestock husbandry.

There are a number of methods. With a knife, like you said; or there's a thing called a burdizzo (possibly spelled wrong) that crushes the bloodvessels without actually cutting the skin. Or, you could get a special thing that puts a rubber band around it and leaves it on for days until everything shrivels up and falls off.

Is this off-putting yet?

Be not afraid...

I'd say that this is not something you should do without talking to some medical experts.

Go ask a doctor and not us.

I don't know, I don't trust doctors. But you guys seem reliable. I have asked my therapist but... Maybe I'll ask again. I only asked this here 'cause I was feeling er, not good. Sorry. [lol]

Watch Hedwig and the Angry Inch. I'm serious. It's about a transsexual who realizes (belatedly) he doesn't need to chop up his body to be who his is.

I don't think it's going to do what you want.

Some people desire to be castrated, get it done, and are happy about it even much later. Not everyone regrets doing things like that.

How one tells whether one is going to be full of regrets or not — that's the hard part.

That'd be a really fucking stupid thing to do LH, just sayin.
The AR-15 is responsible for 95% of all deaths each year. The rest of the deaths are from obesity and drone strikes.

Most of the time, people seem to want this when they're very uncomfortable with being a sexual creature.

Wow. That was rude. Too many of this kind of thump will bring a suspension. Please keep it civil.Thumped.

I'm not sure if "too stupid to exist" is a good message to send out to someone asking about castration * .

Gimme fifty quid and a hacksaw and I'll give it a shot. No refunds.

Er... yeah. Go talk to your doctor and therapist first. Why on earth would you trust major surgery to someone not trained properly in it, especially before even discussing what's troubling you and whether this is the right solution?

Since I agree with Loni Jay about it very likely not doing what you want.

[up][up] Replacement for Morven's unitmely Thump:

It sounds like a marvelous way to ensure that you'll either end up in the intensive care unit of your local hospital or you'll bleed to death - really not a good idea.

Go to your doctor to discuss sterilisation.

Not as important as "please don't bleed to death, " but ought to be said: please don't get yourself banned from the forum. Granted, you haven't done anything wrong that I've seen, but neither did Tnu before he got banned for his own little freakout, and you seem to be going roughly the same direction he did. This place has lost way too many good tropers because they posted something the mods didn't like.

Stay on topic, please.


 
He had it coming.

@OP: Have you talked to a doctor about this? If it's something that's been going on for a while, they might be able to help you out, and it'd be much safer than attempting surgery on yourself.

I don't know, I don't trust doctors. But you guys seem reliable.

As a rule, this is not a good attitude to take regarding medical matters. Nine times out of ten, trained professionals can offer far better advice than a bunch of anonymous Internet yahoos.

Oh look, laculus beat me to the punch.

Dude, I love this site, and we're a knowledgable bunch, but most of us prolly have never gone to medical school.

Mainly because the doctors are trained to bear no ill will to others. The yahoos, on the other hand...

On-topic: have you seriously thought this through? It's not something easily fixed if you change your mind later on. Self-control is heaps better, in all matters pertaining to why you might wanna do it.
