Watch This: Men Find Out What Childbirth Feels Like

Winona Dimeo-Ediger / January 22, 2013

In the latest experiment for their show “Guinea Pigs,” Dutch TV hosts Dennis Storm and Valerio Zeno were hooked up to an electro-simulator that mimics the painful contractions women experience during labor. The video is in Dutch, but around the 7-minute mark, it becomes very clear that agony is a universal language. Apparently the guys underwent two hours of simulated contractions, which is significantly less time than the 6-12 hours (and beyond!) that many women spend in labor. Also? I’d imagine the whole process is a bit less harrowing without the whole “pushing a watermelon-sized human out of your crotch” part. Mothers, give yourselves a pat on the back. You deserve it.
