The hosts of the popular Dutch television show “Guinea Pigs” discover how painful giving birth really is.
In a video clip from the Dutch TV show Proefkonijnen (translation: Guinea Pigs) hosts Dennis Storm and Valero Zeno explain that they understand giving birth to be the most painful thing in the world. Because men can’t actually feel labor pains, Storm and Zeno used electro-stimulations to simulate contractions. While the span of the simulation is significantly shorter than real life labor, the men appear to be in complete misery, doubling over and crying out in very real pain. After the experience, Zeno describes the challenge as torture and even speculates that he may not want his wife to go through the same pain.
