Freudian Snip

Freud had his hang-ups, apparently, even if his cigar was just a cigar. He had a vasectomy at the age of 67.

Hmm. We are piously assured that sex had nothing to do with it. He was trying to halt the aging process.
Nearly a century ago it was believed that tying off one's spermatic cords could thwart the effects of aging.
Ah. Still sounds a bit pathetic.
