Is a Vasectomy Now the Only Way Men Can Be Truly Safe from Financial Extortion?

Heatstreet: Is a Vasectomy Now the Only Way Men Can Be Truly Safe from Financial Extortion?:

In some of the wealthiest neighbourhoods of the United States, a growing number of wealthy men are taking drastic measures.

A recent New York Post story – “Hamptons bachelors are getting vasectomies so gold diggers can’t trap them” – takes all we deem true about reproductive power – that women ultimately hold all the aces – and blows it out of the water.

It tells the calculated tales of four men – including a wealthy, promiscuous real estate developer who claims he caught a woman trying to inseminate herself from a condom she’d offered to flush away. “The vasectomy is insurance,” he says.

Dr. David Shusterman, a New York urologist who performs the procedures, explains: “There’s a spike in single guys who get the procedure in spring and early summer.

“This extortion happens all the time. Women come after them. They get pregnant and want a ransom payment.

“Some guys do an analysis of the cost. For three days of discomfort, it’s worth millions of dollars to them. I never see a poor guy asking for a vasectomy. Rich guys are a population that’s abused a lot”.

I talk to men about vasectomies often; some are for them, some against due to potential complications or prostate cancer etc. What do readers here think? Is it worth getting a vasectomy to avoid being shaken down for child support at some point?
