keep in mind: nursecindy and I are watching

Personally, my leg would get tired after kicking someone for twenty minutes.

Carol Burnett: "Giving birth is like taking your lower lip and forcing it over your head."

Women sometime want more babies. No man would like to be kicked in balls again. So here...

What does Balzac have to say about that ?

When I had a kidney stone, I was told it is a realistic simulation for labor pains, in terms of painful contractions that go on for nobody knows how long. Not sure continuous kicks in the nads is an accurate comparison. Maybe a kidney stone followed by a few kicks while you're passing it. The next YouTube challenge!

No guy with a brain would ever claim that, even if he was dumb enough to believe it. Hats off, ladies.

Obviously, men cannot experience the pain of childbirth, only that of getting kicked in the nuts or passing a kidney stone. All cause tremendous pain.

The difference is no man ever mentioned a year or two later that he would like to get kicked in the nuts or pass another kidney stone'

Women, on the other hand, after a couple of years or so, often say, "You know dear, I'd like to have another baby."

Le Pet retreats to his top secret bunker at Area 19 for an unknown length of time for health reasons.

So true MOTW.
ripleysparrow, I also think that kidney stone pain is the closest a man will get to having labor pains. I had a guy come into the ER with a kidney stone and his pregnant wife. It was their second child. She was trying to calm him down when he told her she didn't know what real pain was like. Big mistake. Big, big mistake. To make a bad situation even worse, I gave him some I.V. Morphine and when it kicked in he told me I was the most beautiful woman he'd ever seen and then asked me to marry him. His wife was still in the room. I told her I got this a lot when I gave drugs like this, which I did. We had put some sticky EKG pads on his very hairy chest when he first came in so to pay him back a little I let her removed them. It wasn't pretty.

They will post ANYTHING on TicTok.

Some people are publicity hounds.

nursecindy - I vaguely remember once making an obscene proposition to a female aide during pre-op sedation. Fortunately my wife was trying to find a parking spot at the time. The EKG pad removal would be positively diabolical if you took your time. Conversely, rapid insertion of a urinary catheter is also quite memorable.

The last sentence. describes a 'crushing grip' and so forth. Read it. Know it. Amateurs. And Don't mess with them.

Cindy, a good friend of mine had kidney stones with terrible pain. The doctor asked him if there was something he could give him and my friend said, "Heroin."

The doctor laughed, but my friend said later that he wasn't kidding.

A friend of mine kept his kidney stone in his wallet. He showed it to me. I said, "that came out of there?!"

The difference between passing a kidney stone and child birth is that 13 years later a kidney stone doesn't come back and bite you in the arse, (and your wouldn't normally send your kidney stone to the college of it's choice).

Vaguely related baseball card story.

The line drive to the family jewels is like delivering twins simultaneously, I suppose. As with the monkey trying to steal a peach, the anticipatory 6-foot vertical leap is the recommended response, and you'd better be quick about it. Maybe a good response for childbirth as well, if practiced as a prevention measure.

Most guy's have a photographic memory of exactly where they where they were when it happened, who was present, the amount of sunlight at the time, if the spot they crumpled to the ground had grass growing, the sound their balls made as a result of the impact and slowly feeling the senses return to every part of your body which gradually went from paralyzed to numb.

Not to compare levels of pain, though psychologically, I suppose it's worth noting the difference between having 9 months to anticipate and prepare vs. the wave of realization over what has suddenly befallen you.

Has the good doctor ventured to comment on which more painful to watch?
