Skyrim Fans: Vasectomy Clinics are Targeting You. Feel Old Yet?

Slaying Aludin is cool, but you know what's REALLY cool? Sensible family planning!

Don't you hate it when you're trying to enjoy a video game, but you keep being brought down by the knowledge you have two functional vas deferens tubes? No? Me neither; I don't have vas deferens. But I guess there's a market out there for people who love video games but are done with siring offspring, because a vasectomy clinic chain based in the UK is advertising its services with the help of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

"Happy Video Game Day!" cheers a post on the official Marie Stopes Australia Facebook page. "If your 'Fus Ro Dah' has been a little too effective, maybe it's time for a vasectomy! We promise it won't feel like taking an arrow to the knee."

Hats off to that first comment.

Notice Marie Stopes doesn't promise it won't feel like taking an arrow to Somewhere Else. OK, but seriously, a vasectomy is generally safe, effective, and relatively pain-free method of birth control. I still want to know who's yelling 'Fus Ro Dah' at the height of their little deaths, though.

Marie Stopes caps the post by asking, "What video game would you like to play while you recover from a vasectomy?" I can't answer that question directly, but I can confirm playing video games in a post-surgical haze is a special experience. I played Final Fantasy XV after coming home heavily-medicated from abdominal surgery and I almost started crying because Carbuncle was so cute.
