    Study: Castration Adds Years to Men's Lives


    http://www.theatlantic.com/health/archive/2012/09/study-castration-adds-years-to-mens-lives/262778/


    Youtube has everything! Warning, the following youtube clip actually shows a male being castrated (removing testicles)


    WARNING! EXTREMELY GRAPHIC! WARNING!

    That is why this is a link and not embedded:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=os1uI-n0fNs

    Description of youtube clip:
    "Educational video for human male castration.
    This is my first video posted here. Just for some background on myself, I'm in school now working on becoming a veterinarian. I've neutered quite a few animals now, and have used this experience to castrate a willing male friend of mine (Not the man in this video! I do not claim to know the person in this video!). He's never been happier to be free of his hormones. I have first hand experience knowing that men are better off without their testicles. My violent brother lost his in an accident, and there was a HUGE change - no more violence from him, and he has become a positive member of society.
    I know you men are naturally opposed to this idea, but there are only benefits to male castration, and no true reasons to keep the testicles. It makes sense to remove them. One day it will become common practice, such as with circumcision."


    Eeek!!!

    Ah, metta, surely you know this has to be nuts (pun intended). The article is BS science (if it can even be called science), and the YouTube clip is almost as sick as snuff porn.

    On the contrary, low male testosterone (and it can't get much lower when you lose your balls) is an issue I'm personally dealing with right now. Consequences are osteoporosis (loss of bone density, increasing the risk of fractures), loss of muscle mass, weight gain (a "eunuch's build"), and decreased sexual desire & performance, including ED.

    Even if some of these consequences didn't lower life expectancy, which I believe they can, they certainly lower quality of life for most men. Hence losing one's balls, and the testosterone they produce, would not be a good thing.

    This is a joke, right?

    It takes lots of balls to do that.
