'Since the beginning of time, women have been ducking and diving and dodging pregnancy face first and, frankly, they're exhausted,' said Handler.
Chelsea Handler recently gave some advice to men and it made news. She discussed the impact of birth control on women and how men can do their part to avoid pregnancies. In the video on her Instagram, the 48-year-old comedian gave herself a breast exam and asked men to get vasectomies. Handler also calls herself "Chesty Handlerberg." She covers her breasts with her hands in the video, as reported by PEOPLE. "As a woman with natural breasts — not that that has anything to do with this — it is time to explore vasectomies," she said in the video.
"Since the beginning of time, women have been ducking and diving and dodging pregnancy face first — or Pikachu first — and, frankly, they're exhausted," she added. "We've had to listen to men say things like, 'Girl, but using a condom doesn't feel so good,' or 'Can't you just take birth control?" Or "Oops, I forgot to pull out." Enough, you little horny little pigs in blankets," she said.
Also, she spoke of the side effects of contraceptives on women, such as pain from IUDs and several hormonal effects from oral birth control pills. Her message to men is that they also should be more responsible in avoiding unwanted pregnancies. "Women are tired of making concessions for men — especially in the bedroom," Handler said. "We have already been through enough letting you wear socks while you penetrate us," she added dryly. "So, man up, men, and if you can't do that, enjoy the company of your hand." She concluded the video with: "Vasectomies. One snip and that's it."
According to Planned Parenthood, "A vasectomy is a simple surgery done by a doctor in an office, hospital, or clinic. The small tubes in your scrotum that carry sperm are cut or blocked off, so sperm can't leave your body and cause pregnancy. The procedure is very quick, and you can go home the same day. And it's extremely effective at preventing pregnancy — almost 100%. Starting at least 2 months after a vasectomy, your semen (cum) won't contain any sperm, so it can't cause pregnancy."
Handler also turned heads when she recently turned 48 by going to the mountains and skiing in a bikini. Handler's bikini was a mix of the US and Canadian flags with gray gloves, a black hat, and Oakley goggles. "This one's for you, Tucker!" the TV host captioned her picture. The caption referred to Tucker Carlson, who took a dig at her for not having any children. The TV host and political commentator also called Handler an "aging, deeply unlikeable woman."
But Handler always shows up as her most authentic self. Last year, for her 47th birthday, she also posted a video from the mountains. She just wore blue underwear and had American flag stickers all over her. "47," she wrote in her skiing video. "Doing all the things I love with the man I love." She referred to her boyfriend, Jo Koy, as her man in the caption. They were dating at the time but parted ways in July 2022.
