Gentlemen, are you worried that you might cheat on your partner but can't face an emotionally-wrenching conversation with her about the situation? Here's another option you might consider:
I don't know whether he sincerely thought that was a good idea or if he's just really really good at being passive aggressive.
You're right. If he was going for the passive aggressive guilt trip, he shows great commitment to his cause!
Pretty funny, when I first read this comment I'd assumed it was someone talking about this post.
Here, I have an alternative to self-castration, how about he just has sex with his wife? I suppose perhaps she's so repulsive that he'd rather mutilate himself. Those funny humans and their logical decisions.
One of THE most unbearable, and uncomfortable 58 seconds of my life...
And I watched it twice just to make sure I wasn't imagining what had transpired.
hahahaha my fiance is a vet i own a farm, and we have literally laughed for hours about this. Does that indicate our mental illness to laugh at this? Maybe also this dude has some serious religious guilt and self mutilating tendencies. He had to be on drugs! holy cow literally!
what an idiot. last i heard sex involves inserting penis into vagina, not testicles into vagina.
hmm-i wonder if it feels like getting kicked in the balls or since you are just damaging the...uh i donno? male fallopian tube? it feels just like a cut?
If I were monogamous & my husband came to me said his desire for another woman were so great he considered mutilating himself in order to remain faithful I would feel terrible that he were suffering so :(
I'd rather have my husband happy with another woman then mutilate himself for me.
Men please talk to your wives before doing soothing so insanely drastic! If she loves you she will not want to see you hurt!
wtf, why the fuck would anyone have to mutilate themselves rather than cheating? Why can't they fuck their wives? Happy marriages are built on consistent orgasms, everyone knows that.
Jesus replied, "Not everyone can accept this word, but only those to whom it has been given. For some are eunuchs because they were born that way; others were made that way by men; and others have renounced marriage because of the kingdom of heaven. The one who can accept this should accept it."
I've always wondered why Jesus jumps into the topic of Eunuchs when talking about marriage. In many ways marriage itself can be seen as a castration.
