Last night I was watching reruns of Two and a Half Men. I stumbled across episode 24 of season 1. The story is about Charlie deciding to get a vasectomy. This isn’t a medical documentary, so of course we shouldn’t expect a thorough evaluation of risks and benefits. Charlie does have a discussion with the doctor, who says his sexual performance after the snip will be exactly the same as before. No one here would be surprised, we’ve all been through it, but the end of the episode is very good.
