A Man Experiencing Labor!

Apparently this video went viral on Facebook a while back, but I must have missed it.

A man wonders if men truly have a higher pain threshold than women, and decides to test it by simulating labor contraction pain. Using electrodes on the abdominal muscles, a doctor and a physiotherapist simulate contractions on him. Of course its not really the same, as he has no uterine muscles, and they get him to try to change positions which really won't help at all.  Changing positions and using the ball help because it opens up a woman's pelvis and helps the baby change positions, and a man's pelvis doesn't open! It's fused together! But anyway, its kind of interesting to see how he handles the pain.



Will he make it the whole 12 hours of fake labor? haha you'll have to watch and see.
