the article just got better as i kept on reading

“I make all the constructions myself well as I sample fabrics with the focus on their texture and physical properties. My ethereal ideas take shape, and that enraptures me most about being a designer.”

Men Experiencing Labor Pains
With their wives supporting them.
HAHAHHAHAHA TOO GOOD
I bet a kick in the balls would feel real good right about then.
“Men can handle anything”
“Women exaggerate everything”
And then they realized just how wrong they were
Okay, okay. This is pretty funny, and it’s a cute idea and all, but it’s kind of totally inaccurate… If these men were going to truly ‘simulate labor’, we would have to shoot them up with dizzying drugs that make your mind all foggy, strip them naked and parade at least four or five strange medical professionals into the room, give their wives cameras and tell the girls to keep bugging them to look at the lens and try to smile, somehow simulate ten pounds of pressure directly on their bladders, stick a nice comfortable catheter into their urethra, maybe throw in a tube that has to be placed into the baby’s scalp [yes, up through all your lady parts while they’re still inside] and then perhaps one more for amniotic infusion in case you need it [I had to have two during labor, and my labor was not that unique], oh we also need to let them know that they cannot ingest ANY food throughout the entirety of the experience, so if they’re hungry [and they will be] they can just shut the fuck up about it, not like it matters much because the drugs and meds they’re receiving on an empty stomach will likely cause some nausea and vomiting in between those lovely contractions anyway…
Oh yea, and then we’d have to load them up with laxatives so that they shit themselves. Because that happens. To most of us. During labor.
Last but not least, we should remember that many women either endure painful vaginal tears or have to be cut during labor in order for the baby to come out within the right time period [as set forth by the hospital]. So there’s that.
I mean, don’t get me wrong. The video is funny, it’s a nice little clip to watch instead of doing your desk work lol, but electronically induced abdominal pains are not even fucking close to the experience of labor. Not even, close. Labor is not just pain, and it’s not just in your abdomen. I’d like to see a truly accurate typical hospital labor simulation. THAT would be fucking HILARIOUS.
Dat commentary tho
