Video: Men in AGONY as they 'experience' labour pains

Two (very brave) Dutch TV presenters have been filmed experiencing labour pains for a televised experiment.

Dennis Storm and Valerio Zeno - who host a show called Guinea Pigs in the Netherlands - put themselves through two hours (seriously, is that all?!) of contraction pain by being hooked up to electrodes.

The pair looked pretty confident as they settled themselves down in the 'labour ward', but were soon doing their best One Born Every Minute impression, screaming their manly socks off as the pain intensified.

Dennis and Valerio said they wanted to try the simulated labour as they had heard giving birth 'is the worst pain there is'.

Well, they got something right.

Have a look at the clip to see how Dennis and Valerio got on. It gets good around 4 minutes and 30 seconds in...

 Nahhhh. Not gonna watch.

I disagree that labor pains are the worst pain there is. Obviously they haven't had Gall Bladder Colic or Kidney stones.

No problem! I I thought the video was hysterical. Of course, I'm the weird one that thinks the Dutch language is sexy. I could listen to it all day.

I only watched about half. With both of my kids, my pain was in my lower back and legs too. Where are the electrodes for those areas? It wasn't centralized pain in my abdomen. Lol
