Just don't go out and have sex immediately after the procedure. The seminal vesicles hold sperm for a certain length of time, even after a vasectomy, like maybe a week or two.

Funny you should mention that....
A friend of my mother's told us girls that a popular form of birth control in the 40s/50s was for a woman to shake up any carbonated beverage and squirt it up her....well, you get the picture.
and that's why so many baby's were born in the 40's and 50's.

Just say no! I'm almost 50 and I've never had sex. I will start a family when I can afford it.

Lol. "Nearly" as good as a condom. Have fun raising "Nearly", and his little sister "Almost", followed by the triplets "You Swore", "Where Did You Read That Again?!?", and "Damnit, So CLOSE".

On the other hand, if you are withdrawing your Happy Meal from your mouth and find a condom, it's not so great.

LOL! Absolutely! The REAL cause of us baby boomers wasn't the return of soldiers at the end of WWII; it was 7-UP as a contraceptive!

Now this is the stupidest thing I have ever read in terms of birth control. I have 5 children due to the "pullout" and "pill" method so what does that say?

Somewhat true. It all depends on how often you "release" after the procedure. You need to clean out your system completely to be safe. Some guys I know took 2 months!

a BULLET in the cartridge is as a
bullet in the gun.

The only difference is location.

Put the peeter in, pull the peeter out.

Bullets don't kill people....gun powder does.

See, I can do it, too!

Stupid article.

Could be like the blonde on the pill. She got pregnant and didn't know why, other than maybe it was because the pills kept falling out. She couldn't understand how to make such a little pill stay up in there.
