Ever since I hit puberty I've been annoyed by the two fleshy appendages that dangle between my legs. They're always getting in the way, they're itchy, smelly, and not particularly pleasant to look at (at least that's what my neighbors said in the police report). I've been burdened by these things all of my life, and now there is finally an author with the ball...guts to write about a solution.

I'm not sure why the author focuses the benefits mostly to sex offenders. Why should they be the only ones relieved of the nuisance of a nut-sack? They're criminals! They already get all the free food, clothing, shelter, and companionship they want, and now the author proposes that they get a free castration??? Am I the only one jealous of this fact?

Further, although author lists a slew of reasons for the slicing and dicing, he mistakenly puts a few advantages in the "disadvantage" category. He states that gynecomastia is a disadvantage. How can having your own personal pair of breasts to play with be a disadvantage? That's just silly. He also states that soft musculature is a disadvantage - since when do women like hard bodied men? I watched King of Queens, According to Jim, and Family Guy, three shows where heavyset soft bodied men are married to hot chicks.

Plus he doesn't even mention that you won't have to worry about an unintended pregnancy once you've been castrated!

That said, I have to applaud the author for bringing this subject to light. I will finally be able to buy a pair of skinny jeans and not worry about the unsightly bulge caused by my preposterous package.

This book changed my life. I was ready for a life changing event and this book showed the way. I had tried everything from base jumping to beating up random people at the food court in my local mall but nothing worked.

However, it is not for everyone. I will list the pros & cons below so you can judge for yourself:

PROS -
1. Getting kicked in the balls is no big deal.
2. I make an effective sundial. No need to wear a watch during daylight!
3. Lots of extra room "down there." I can carry extra cash without fear of being mugged.

CONS -
1. No more scratching. C'mon guys, you know what I'm talking about. That time in the morning right after you wake up and you really give your boys the once-over. I miss that immensely.
2. Man boobs. I developed a rally impressive rack. I spend WAY too much time inspecting and examining them. Did I mention they are impressive?
3. They don't grow back. This was never addressed in this book and I just made an assumption.

All in all I find that a life without my coin purse is very rewarding indeed!

There are many reasons and concerns one would have before one would undergo castration. The decision is irreversable. To ignore the disadvantages of the procedure would be unwise. I consider the book to be a thoughtful expose which effectively laid out the pros and cons.

I made a thoughtful and informed decision to proceed and had my testes surgically removed in a hospital by a skilled surgeon. That was 10 months

ago. No regrets.

For as long as I can remember, I've struggled with indecisiveness about whether or not to have my hairy boys cut off.

Part of me thought "Heck, just keep 'em. They're a fairly nice set of testes."
But then on the other hand, "Geez, If only I didn't have these big old giggleberries swinging around down in my nether regions..."

The author of this book had the right idea. Just list out your pros and your cons and count up which list outweighs the other. Of course! Why hadn't I thought of this?

I followed the instructions in the book and made a couple of personalized lists.
As I stared at the "Advantages" column that I had made up for myself, I'll admit that the idea of "instant 5 pound weight loss" sounded great!

But with an upcoming Caribbean vacation planned, the idea of "having camel-toe while sporting my Speedo on the beach" just seemed too unnerving.

Ultimately I decided to keep Poncho and Lefty.

Verified Purchase
This book is far thicker than I expected, and goes into scientific detail on castration in various countries, the how, the why, the effects, and more. I'm rating it high for what it is - but I bought it for a joke, and it's not really for that.
