Liveblogging Your Vasectomy

On a related note… Medical science blogger "Abel Pharmboy" liveblogged his vasectomy last week.  You can relive the adventure here if you have the stomach: Liveblogging the Vasectomy Chronicles.  It’s yet another proud milestone for the web.  I don’t know who is creepier — the blogger who did this or the readers who tuned in live.

  1. Well, I’ll be the first to admit the idea sounded odd at first. However, I am a medical/health blogger and biomedical educator so I wanted to use my personal experience to show men how the procedure was relatively straightforward. The post has gotten a lot of men (and some women) to discuss their own experiences, fears, and misconceptions in the comment thread and a subsequent post details the 30 or so links the account drew. Many of those also include lengthy comment threads. So, yes, this may seem “creepy” on the surface but I was happily surprised to learn just how many folks viewed my self-effacing account as a medical information public service.
    Thanks very much for the link – sorry to have made anyone queasy!

  3. Bloggers making a vas deferens

    I am very deeply touched (as I was literally yesterday) by the outpouring of support and best wishes from fellow bloggers on the liveblogging of my vasectomy. For all of the dark humor and puns, you have each been instrumental…
