FOOLISHNESS AND GROWN MAN MOANING
Video footage of women in labor can be unsettling or disturbing to some, the same is true of footage of two cocky, Dutch guys trying to experience the miracle of childbirth by having electrodes strapped to their abs and simulating two hours of contractions.
In my opinion, this viral video is at least educational in a way. As a man it fascinated me, I’ve long wondered what it would be like. And this video certainly isn’t as bad or guilt-inducing as watching a clip on a home video TV show of some poor old guy doing an inverted swan dive on icy concrete. Who does that, by the way!?! Who says, “Oh yes. This one of Grandpa Orville breaking his hip will be hilarious once they edit out him screaming and swearing at me with old timey curse words to put down the dadgummit camera.” Anyways.
Let’s just watch it, shall we? Two young Dutch men simulating labor contractions…
Watching anyone in pain can be tough, though. For some it might be hilarious or amusing. Especially for moms. They might watch this and laugh gleefully or bitterly as they shake their head, knowing that these silly guys would also need to be experiencing the pain and effort of passing a golfball down the length of their penises if they were going even show up at the same ballpark as the Xtreme sport of childbirth. “Two hours!?” moms might growl, “Try 38 hours! With back labor, you sniveling wimps!”
I found it fascinating. Not fascinating enough for me to try it myself, of course. Fascinating as in being so thankful these guys did this video, so Charlie and I don’t have to.
