E12: Getting the Snip (Matty gets a vasectomy)

November 12, 2018

For men of a certain vintage or life stage, having a vasectomy makes a whole lot of sense. It is a simple 20- to 30-minute procedure.

Our host Matty recently went through this procedure so we got to ask him about what it was like, what the recovery time was and a few of the questions we have always wanted to ask about this procedure. 

Men mistakenly think it will affect your sex life, make you less of a man, and that the op is painful – Matty says all are untrue.

There's lots of laughs in this episode so take a listen.


Is the modern man a hunter or a gentleman? A manual labourer or a technophile? In today's culture the modern man usually is a mix of many things. The modern man must be adaptable.

Gender roles are changing and blending together and the stay-at-home dad or part time dad population is growing.

More fathers than ever are participating in their children's nurturing and upbringing.

The thing is that fathers and mothers come into the parenting process differently though. For the mother, the connection is biological. It's a part of her.

Fathering, on the other hand, is less so. Therefore, it's important for men to learn the skills they need to be a good dad. For some guys it's more intuitive, like kicking a football, but most guys need a coach or some direction.

DADDY EATS LAST discusses what it means to be a man and a father in modern society and all the issues that comes with both.
