Links to More Information About Castration
It is very important that you learn everything you possibly can about castration if you are considering this at all. I am just one person with my own individual experiences, so I urge you to seek input from other people and examine other sources. I hope to add many more links for you in the near future.

A Warning To Others A storywriter wrote something based on a true story of a eunuch who regrets that he was castrated. Not everyone who gets castrated lives a happier life after this irreversible surgery. Make sure you are among the very small minority of people who would have an improved quality of life after castration before you go through with this procedure.
Online Support Groups
I have listed some groups where those seeking castration or those who have already been castrated may discuss their interests, issues, feelings, and concerns with others like themselves.
This Usenet group is quiet lately, but I have received and returned much support here for over two years.

We discuss castration, penectomy, and other various genital modifications. (NOTE: I am not the list owner, though I am a member) This mailing list now contains over 1000 members.

Men Without Balls on Yahoo
This is a support group for those who have already been castrated by any means, whether by accident or by intention. They discuss post-castration issues such as feelings and hormone replacement therapy. If you are a person who was castrated and now regrets it, castrated for medical reasons (such as cancer), or castrated by accident, then I would strongly recommend that you look into this mailing list. This particular list is not for those seeking castration or information on the effects, but it is for those already castrated.

This group discusses the psychological motivation for those who seek emasculation.
