I have been contemplating a vasectomy for a long time now, but am afraid that I will embarrass myself by “erecting” on the operating table. I am prone to random spontaneous erections, possibly due to a high libido. Would the staff view this as an involuntary reaction to stimuli, or would it generate muffled laughter and strange looks?
Hopefully all the knives and needles will scare it into retreat.

I'm sure that if you did happen to become erect during the vasectomy - you wouldn't be the first. The dr has probably seen it dozens of times. You could even mention it before the procedure just to put your mind at rest. They'll probably tell you that it happens all the time. Good luck :-)
