World Vasectomy Day (WVD) is the largest male-oriented global family planning event ever taking place on October 18, 2013. The goal is to have 1,000 vasectomies performed across 25 countries in 24 hours. Men in China, India, Australia and the UK have already signed on.

The organizers of the inaugural World Vasectomy Day (WVD) are asking American men to join their brothers around the world to put their ‘balls on the line’ to help the planet as part of a global campaign to encourage vasectomy as a viable family planning option. Doctors are being asked to contribute their expertise as well – all in support of the WVD global campaign.

Men can sign up to register their interest to participate in WVD via the website and will be matched with a participating vasectomy doctor in their area wherever possible. WVD clinics are already being planned in Seattle, Nashville, Minnesota, NYC, LA and Denver and the list is growing.

Dr. Douglas Stein, one of the world’s most prolific vasectomists, speaks up for vasectomies: “In my opinion, vasectomy is the single best option for sexually active heterosexual men whose families are complete. It is a win for yourself, for your family and for all of our future.”

In some states, there is a 30-day waiting period required between the ‘pre-consult’ and having the vasectomy procedure – so the deadline for participating is September 18, 2013. Information specific to each state will be made available at or will be known by the local vasectomy providers.

World Vasectomy Day is created by two-time Oscar nominated and Emmy Award winning documentary filmmaker Jonathan Stack and produced by his New York-based Gabriel Films and Sydney-based Smith&Nasht – both media production companies focused on social issue storytelling.

“You accomplish more carbon footprint reduction with one vasectomy than 20 life times of reusing, reducing and recycling. There’s no greater gift you can give yourself, the country and our future,” says Stack.
