My wife and I have been together 5 years now, we have two
beautiful children and have decided that’s all we are going to have.
Because my wife has a very bad reaction to birth control pills we
primarily depend on condoms. We long to be free of them. We haven’t
any insurance to cover a vasectomy.

The pill has dampened her appetite and this procedure would be the
healthiest choice for us both. We’ve been married many years and
would love to have this procedure done with little cost.
J.D. Portland, Oregon
It’s more permanent than roses, impossible to lose, unlike
diamonds, and much more fun than a box of chocolates!
R.H. Portland, Oregon
We don’t want kids, we can always adopt, the world has enough

It would be really nice not to have to interrupt loveplay to use a

I am 38. My new wife is 48. We are not going to have children.

My queen of the night doesn’t want, need, or desire more than me,
myself, and I. Not to mention that it is either her or me. I would
rather it be me, ‘cause I’m going to get it done myself anyways.

She’s a love! I want to feel flesh again!

The sight of Earth-munching toddlers makes my blood run cold. The
thought of me accidentally producing one of these cute little devils
is horrifying. I couldn’t abandon it or want to, but it would change
my life in a worldly way.

It won’t cause a loss of sensation
This painless and safe operation
But it will keep us one day
From having to pay
The cost of some kid’s education.

The knowledge that there is no way I could get a woman pregnant
could only increase the pleasure of SEX!
R.W. Ruidoso, New Mexico
I see negative population growth as one of the necessary and
non-negotiable requirements to preserve what is left of our Earth. I
am more than willing to not reproduce for my part.
D.W.C. Olympia, Washington
Too much child support: 5 kids by 3 women. The world is getting
too over crowded & we can’t support sustainability.
J.P. Portland, Oregon
I shouldn’t be allowed to reproduce.
D.G. Baton Rouge, Louisiana
Ever since I was little I had told my father I wasn’t going to
have kids. He would always tell me I had to, to keep the family name
going. I had no moral reasons then, now that I know all of the
ecological damage bringing one more child to this earth causes, there
is no way I could have a child. Screw the family name.
L.S. Reno, Nevada
I’d rather not add to the population problem. There’s always
adoption and yes, contraception for both parties is a pain. Besides
there’s no "Norplant" for men.
N.N. Portland, Oregon
The earth has too many Homo sapiens as it is and neither of us
wants to add any more.
G.S. Santa Fe, New Mexico
It’s the most sensible, responsible, permanent solution to birth
B.R. Portland, Oregon
As an environmentalist, the very worst thing I can do in my life
is to create another super-consuming American. Of course, if I did
create a child I would do everything in my power to ensure he or she
would do more good than bad in their life. But the only guarantee is
that my kid would unsustainably devour vast quantities of natural
resources during their life.
L.B. Ketchum, Idaho
Even though I’ve already tied it, I want to have a ritual
vasectomy every year to express my deep love for nature’s beauty and
to show my sincere concern for my soon-to-be-extinct bipedal lover -
may we live long and die out!
K.B. Santa Cruz, California
I don’t want to bring another person into the world, especially
not another American. One of us uses much more and does more damage
to the environment than someone in the Third World.
D.L. Lake Oswego, Oregon
With this small gesture of love for this planet, I hope to restore
an ecological balance... someday?.. ...maybe?
M.T. Seattle, Washington
I love her and I love the earth.
R.N. Tigard, Oregon
We want fear free, guilt free, artificial hormone free, drug free,
latex free sex.
R. W-S. Roseland, Virginia
I want a vasectomy but I’m broke. So, do I volunteer to be some
med student’s science project, or do the sheep method and put a
rubber band around my balls?
