Let me start by saying that I've been on the receiving end of a generous amount of physical pain in my life. I've broken more bones than I can count, spent more time getting stitches, x-rays, and cat-scans than I want to remember, and lost a lot of childhood summers thanks to a plaster-mold somewhere on my body.
With that said; I've never pretended to be a tough guy. I whined, cried (sobbed), moaned, and complained more than you can imagine, and I never once considered myself to be "stronger" because of those experiences. In fact, I'm more of a baby than ever before, and the thought of giving BIRTH TO A CHILD isn't something I can even comprehend. Then again... no guy really can.
Until you put him & his buddy through a "simulated labor" session, with results you can probably predict.
Are you crying from laughter? Sorry ladies. You're tougher than I can ever be.
