More painful: Kick in the nuts or childbirth?

    I think if the nut sack was ripped...

    And that tear could be graded, Grade 1, Grade 2, Grade 3-- as it is in childbirth...

    Now we've levelled the playing field, as it were.

    Dude... mere kidney stones are more painful, for much longer duration than a nutcracker.

    Given the choice no man wants to get kicked in the nuts, but women having been giving birth, willingly, for 100 million years.

    I've had my nuts kicked once or twice and I broke my kneecap once. I'd take a nut-kicking way before a kneecap breaking. And no, I didn't owe Vito and the boys too much vig.

    If men were responsible for giving birth, the species would have died out ages ago. Y'all are buncha wusses who couldn't deal with the pain of childbirth, esp. the "natural" kind that was the only option for a few millenia.

    I would submit that reading Sportsbruh's posts is more painful than either.

    AND...if the rip extended from the sac all the way to the rectum....while a room full of people shrieked 'it's okay! You're doing great!'....

    On the other hand, guys don't get an epidural or a morphine drip right before they get slammed in the balls. And they don't get to take home a baby, and they don't get flowers and presents. And women still want to have more babies after the first one....not too many men want to get slammed in the balls again.

    So who knows. Might be a tie.

    I have seen the childbirth rip during birth. Live and in Technicolor. I been hit playing sports more than a few times. Women get my vote, and it's not even close.

    That said, kidney stones are on a different level. Ask someone who has given birth and had stones.

    I've witness four childbirths.

    Nut-kicking, even with an epidural, wouldn't come close.

    And I'm not even taking into consideration that a nut-kicking doesn't come with nine months of hormones, all levels of mental and physical discomfort, and dragging around a leaden burlap sack squishing your bladder.
