Item: Childbirth Is Really Uncomfortable

What's it like to experience childbirth? Two men from a Dutch TV show attempted to find out by hooking themselves up to a contraction simulator.

The bottom line: It looks incredibly painful. I guess this shouldn't be a shock to me, having watched three children being born firsthand. Still...yikes.

I'm not sure if this is an accurate representation of what contractions feel like, but it does leave out a key ingredient: The guys didn't have a human yanked out of their crotches. That's got to hurt a bit too.
