Rich men are resorting to getting vasectomies so ‘gold diggers' can’t trap them with a baby

We've all heard of the stereotypical gold digger. You know: the hot young woman who flirts with rich, usually older, men. The wealthy old Scrooge McDucks might well believe that 22-year-old Cindi has fallen head-over-heels in love with them thanks to their winning personality, but in reality, the rest of us know that they've really fallen in love with their platinum AMEX card. As  shallow and ethically reprehensible as this sugar-daddy-targeting behaviour is, it's not as though men are any better, and there are plenty of young potential boy-toys targeting rich old ladies.

However, it seems as though the gold digging phenomenon is a lot more widespread than the rest of us ever thought. Apparently, it's gotten so bad that rich dudes are now paying to have vasectomies, in a bid to prevent opportunistic women from having sex with them in order to get pregnant and then extort them for money.

In a recent interview with the New York Post, 'Scott' - a male model who earns a cool half a million dollars annually - stated:

"I had a vasectomy a few months ago. Having a house in the Hamptons and being fairly well-off, I’ve encountered some problems — women try to get pregnant. It’s a trick. [They say,] ‘I love you, [we] don’t need a condom’ ... Women want that Cinderella story, but I’m noncommittal at this point in my life."

The NYP also interviewed Urologist Dr David Shusterman, who claims to have observed a huge upswing in the number of wealthy men asking for vasectomies in recent years. Shusterman stated:

"This extortion happens all the time. Women come after them. [They get pregnant and] want a ransom payment. Some guys do an analysis of the cost — for three days of discomfort [after a vasectomy], it’s worth millions of dollars to them. I never see a poor guy [asking] for a vasectomy. Rich guys are a population that’s abused a lot."

It seems that even the use of contraceptives doesn't deter some of these women from getting pregnant. 'John', a 34-year-old real estate developer that The Post interviewed, stated that on one memorable occasion a woman with whom he'd had a one night stand with had attempted to insert the ejaculate leftover in a used condom into herself. "She denied it," John stated, "But she tried to get herself pregnant. After that, I have to be a lot more careful. I’m a single guy doing well — more girls come along."

So there you have it. What are we supposed to do about this rash of men being scammed for their money? Well, for starters maybe they could try pursuing meaningful relationships with people who like them for who they are and not for the contents of their wallets. I know it sounds crazy guys, but I really have a feeling that it just might work.
