I go into detail about pregnancy and birth in this, and would like someone to go
into detail about factual pain from getting hit in the balls, not that it hurts a lot
more, I would prefer facts.
You know how men and women fight over which pain is worse, childbirth or getting
kicked in the balls. I was getting pissed off by seeing that joke about how getting
kicked in the balls is over 9000 in the del unit of pain, whereas giving birth is 57,
and a human body can only handle 45.
First off, the 'del' unit of pain is a made up thing, derived from the dol unit of
pain, coming from the latin word dolor, meaning pain. That is the scale of 1-10,
where 1 is little to no pain, 2-3 is mild pain, 3-4 is discomfort or mild pain, 5-7
is distressing or severe pain, 8-9 is very severe pain, and 10 is unbearable pain.
Second, no scale would work, ever. Every single person has a different pain tolerance
level, so each person can handle pain a different way, and react at different levels
Third, even with medicine in the US alone 700 women die a year giving birth, 34,000
barely avoid death, while I haven't been able to find any credible evidence for males
dying from getting kicked in the testis I know it happens, I just don't know how many
of them do a year.
Fourth, a women's pain lasts from up to an hour to a couple of days, men's pain lasts
for 5 minutes to half an hour, and feels much incredible worse, as it's all packed
into that tiny time, and women opt for pain medication while men usually wouldn't
have the time to make it to a hospital for the medication.
I can't say much from the males point of view, as there isn't much documented about
it, whereas childbirth there is a lot, but the best way I can think to explain it is,
try imagining your scrotum getting blown up to 5 times it's normal size in a few
months filled with liquid and flesh and bone that stretches and hits and kicks
everywhere it can reach. That would be quite on comfortable.
Then when it comes time to give birth a women's cervix stretches inside of her to 10
centimeters to let the baby pass through, same as her vagina it stretches to 10
centimeters in quite a short time, and because of how quickly it does do that, some
women have tears and lacerations, that may be easy to fix, but result in stitching
that takes a long time to heal. I wouldn't quite know how to put this into a males
perspective, but if you do give some thought to the amount of stretching that a women
has to go through you might look at it differently.
On a side note, if you haven't gotten to see a live birth, as I haven't, this is all
things I've learn off the internet, from my mom and some family friends, a women is
asked to stop pushing when the babies nose and mouth are out so they suction out the
amniotic fluids and mucus before the baby can start crying and breathing. After you
get the babies head out you have to push it's shoulders out, then you continue for up
to half an hour afterwards pushing, do you want to know why, to get the placenta
Also for women, they don't remember the pain, some sort of hormone goes through them
and they physically cannot remember the pain, thus the reason women have more then 1
I can't give any full length details on getting hit in the balls, but overall, in my
opinion I feel like if all of a women's pain was put into that small of a time or a
man's was stretched out to that long of a time, they would be oddly similar, and
since there isn't actually a way to accurately measure pain, I feel like the whole
argument is a complete waste of everyone's time.
I realize they both hurt, but at the same time neither gender can experience the
exact same pain as the other gender, so at the moment it's all up in the air, and I
think we should just leave it there and keep in mind
