Why did Sigmund Freud want a vasectomy at 67 years old? Why were goat gonads all the rage in the 1920s? Who was the first person to get the snip?

Today we're handing over the mic to our sister podcast at History Hit - "Betwixt the Sheets" - to bring you the weird history of vasectomies.

Host Kate Lister is joined by Georgia Grainger (https://twitter.com/sniphist) to discuss the vasectomy’s place as a contraceptive, as well as its relationship with eugenics and masculinity.

*WARNING this episode includes mentions of mental illness, eugenics and themes of an adult nature*

Produced by Charlotte Long and Sophie Gee. Mixed by Pete Dennis.
