It's been out a while, so I've seen it before, but maybe some of you haven't. It's the Dutch experiment where they hook 2 guys up to electrodes and basically put them through labor pains. It's freaking AWESOME and every sig other of a pregnant woman needs to watch it (I'd say they need to GO THROUGH IT, but yeah, how many men would actually do it?)

Anyway, video's about 10 min and it will have you smiling to know we're the stronger sex You do have to have the CC turned on (there's a little box that says cc on the bottom right corner of the video) -- unless you speak Dutch, then you don't need the subtitles in English

I want to see them simulate cervical/vaginal pressure. Because THAT is what drives me to an epi every time. The abdominal part? Not *NEARLY* as bad.

That was awesome. I was cracking up the whole time and the cookies and the baby at the end made me laugh harder!

In all seriousness though all SOs should have to experience this. Maybe not for two hours but at least a couple "contractions". Just to have an appreciation of the pain we go through.

2 of 3 labors I had were back labor and, I think, that is 10x worse than abdominal contractions. man, oh man... I don't honestly even remember the actual cervical expansion/delivery. I just remember feeling like these kids were 100 feet long and couldn't get them out fast enough. The back labor was the worst for me.

Back labor is the only labor I know. :'( The pressure down below and urge to push is a p!sser but back labor is evil!

I agree, men should have to experience at least a few minutes of what we experience so they can truly appreciate what we go through.
