Men Go Through Labor Experiment, Learns Childbirth Hurts. Videos!!!
I posted this is in the Pregnacy Group but wanted to share with women who aren't expecting. These videos are too funny. Men can't even go though more than 3.5hours of labor before quitting. It would be so nice if we had the option of quitting.
Dr. Rochford has three children of his own and he wanted to undergo the experiment to see what his wife went through giving birth and to see if men or women have a higher pain threshold.
He exclaims in the video that he “hates contractions” and that the experiment is “almost too much to bear.”
After calling it quits just past the three-and-a-half-hour mark, Rochford apologized to all the women out there, including his wife, for thinking he understood what it was like to go through labor.
And the best quote of all: “Men of the world, you have no idea. Leave it to the women. Forget the whole pain threshold debate. We have nothing. Women win. Men don’t. The end.”
Propped on a bed with electrodes attached to their abdomens, Storm and Zeno last through two hours of the simulated contractions. Though they try to laugh through the strain, the men appear to be in complete misery as they double over and clutch pillows tightly.
While the time span of the simulation was much shorter than many instances of real-life labor, Storm and Zeno appeared to get the full experience. In the end, Zeno sums up the challenge as torture and wonders if he wants his wife to go through the same pain.
This video is in Dutch. I found this synopsis in the comments.
Guy with hat is in a lot of pain, doesn't think he will be able to get through this for 2 hours.
The woman is telling them to stop fighting against the pain, but try and accept it and focus.
The man in the hat eventually gives up because it's too painful and he doesn't want it anymore.
In the end the blond guy says he found i a fantastic experience, the guy in the hat says he's not sure he wants to make his wife pregnant anymore, after this experience.
