Like many men, Toby Byrum decided to have a vasectomy to end his reproductive years. Unlike most of them, Byrum had his at the age of 28 while he is still single and childless.
Two years later, the Web consultant from Jackson Hole, Wyoming, has no regrets.
“I view the next 15-20 years of my life as some of the best years I’m going to live. I wanted to make sure those years were . . . going to make me ultimately the happiest person I could be,” he told TODAY co-host Matt Lauer.
He’s not alone. Urologists around the country say that they are seeing a small but growing number of young men who are deciding to have vasectomies when they are young, all but insuring that they will never be able to have children of their own.
“It’s kind of getting to be a departure from this society – a wife, a husband, have kids, live in the suburbs, – and instead is more, ‘Maybe we don’t want to have kids,’ “ Byrum said.

Fellas, WOW!!!! More and more younger guys are making themselves infertile with NO regrets.
Makes sense. Kids mess up your ability to enjoy your life and since sex doesn't really have much to do with procreation, as many religious people practice, what's the point? Is that right?
