Professor Karl August Weinhold*** was a German physician with a few strange ideas. I discovered this by reading Panati’s Extraordinary Endings of Practically Everything and Everybody which you can probably find in your local library. Or you could read a translated wikipedia page about him which is even more fun…..
Weinhold recommended the following as a means to prevent overpopulation:
“I propose, therefore, as a general and urgent measure, a kind of indissoluble infibulation with soldered joints and metallic sealing before, which is not different from what can only be opened by force, quite capable of preventing the act of procreation until the entry into marriage. This kind of indissoluble infibulation talking to me on several individuals who hold placed by masturbation into an almost incurable nerve weakness, which treffliebsten services provided. You go from being fourteen years old, it’s up and ready to enter into marriage applied to such individuals who possess demonstrable not so much wealth to feed the creatures created out of wedlock educate. They will remain where all his life, which never come to the logo, to be able to support a family and maintain.
The surgery itself is quite easy and almost painless, as does the Verlötnng and metallic seals, the latter of my invention, the foreskin is in fact preferred, and between a pair of perforated metal plates gently squeezed, so that the pierced a hollow needle in which a wire is five inches long, can hardly be felt. Is pulled through the wire, it is bent so that it is not obvious which parts can be pressed, and both front Eiidspitzen be approached and fused together by means of a soldering iron kleineu. As soon as the soldered spot, which gets the size of a lentil, is cold, is pressed by an oppositional attitude of a solid body, a small metal die and this taken into custody.
It is thus quite impossible to open the infibulation and close without a stamp again secretly, without that there should not be detected at the next examination. The control of the legal and illegal opening of that is due to a medical-legal authority. The secret and violent opening, which should be made by individuals 14 to 17 years, will be punished without respect of persons with rods.
Those, however, which of 18 to 24 Years of life represented as taking place with the rat race, what would be best suited to take the surplus from the sexual voluptuous power tools in the work-shy arms and legs
*** As well as being in favour of infibulating and male chastity belts as a way of population control, he was also one of several doctors who attempted to galvanise the dead back to life using electricity
