I'd say no comparison anyone who thinks getting kicked in the balls is worse is kidding themselves, I've heard child birth can be compared to a guy trying to pass a baseball through his urinary tract. Think of that for a moment... If that's true child birth is far worse.

Props to women for putting up with that type of pain.


1) Your statement is based only on "what you've heard". You should not form an opinion from one or a few things you "heard'. 2) A penis is not designed to deliver children, a vagina is.

It's useless to debate which is more painful since it's nearly impossible to measure. There are far too many variables in either scenario to get accurate and, most importantly, consistent results.

Childbirth is a natural thing, and is painful, but I still think be kick in the nuts hurt more.

As to be expected, the majority of females are arguing for childbirth and the majority of males are arguing for groin attacks...

No-one could ever experience both for a truly objective comparison so it's apples and pears, really.

And in any case, the question is fundamentally flawed (no offense to the OP :P) seeing as we're trying to observe the dependent variable (perceived pain) against the independent variable (groin shot/childbirth) WITHOUT controlling the time period (single groin shot/entire childbirth process).

Basic experimental methodology, folks

"It is impossible to anticipate the length of labour. Every woman and every labour is individual. In general women expecting their first baby will take longer than women expecting a subsequent baby (though this does not always hold true). For a first baby, the average length of the first stage of labour is 12 to 14 hours, the second stage 1 to 2 hours and the third stage 5 to 60 minutes. Women expecting a subsequent baby can expect the first stage to last around 6 to 8 hours and the second stage lasting from 5 to 60 minutes. Remember that these are only averages. Women can have quick labours and long labours and anything in between (Robertson, 1999)."

Like I said, 8 to 12 hours depending on your demographic.

But according to the statistics from this journal article:
"Bonica found that labor pain was mild in 15%
of cases, moderate in 35%, severe in 30% and extreme
in 20%."
That's what leads me to think that it's not the contraction that is the source of intolerable pain during pregnancy, but it's because of problems associated with the baby itself.

Didn't want to download and read the article, but using those numbers, 50% of labor pains are severe or extreme, meaning an average of 4 to 6 hours of severe or extreme pain per delivery. You have yet to establish a basis for your conclusion that labor is not painful unless complications occur, such as laceration of the birth canal, or that either severe or extreme pain are intolerable. My personal experience with pain is that it is never intolerable, only unpleasant. In fact, most times someone is experiencing severe or extreme pain, their only choice is to tolerate it.

You saying that the baby is not the source of pain is like saying mothers who have died from pregnancy in the past did not die from problems associated with the baby (such as the skull size being bigger than the birth canal leading to huge tear in uterine and vaginal tissue leading to huge blood loss), but they died from the pain of contractions.

That's just silly.

Like I said, my sister's most recent labor was painless and lasted under an hour. There is no hard set "This is what every labor is like, no exceptions." It is ignorant to believe so. Also, if you want to take this topic seriously, duration of pain should not be a factor anyway. Pain is the same whether experienced shortly or for years.

Well I've never made that conclusion, it was something you've made up by yourself.

I'm not here to say that non-complicated labours are less painful than complicated ones; it obviously varies from person to person. That's why I said in my original post; the pain of childbirth is "inconsistent". Some women say they feel no pain, while others do.

And I added, childbirth pain is mainly due to problems associated with the baby, which is true. Are you going to deny that babies in breech position are going to be quicker than non-breech?
And this is not even a "complication", it's only a position of the baby within the uterus.

Therefore, having labour in a breech position will obviously be more painful in general because it takes longer. It's not rocket science.

Maybe you should read my original post more carefully instead of throwing random argument at me.

False.
The human body has a pain threshold, once the limit is reached, it will become unconscious. That's why in a serious car accident, you don't see the patients awake.

is you compare it as in reward...child birth
If you compare it as in pain...child birth
if you compare it as in pride.. testicals
if you compare it as in time... child birth
if you compare it as in shooting pain... testicals

They are two different kinds of pain. One feels like you got stabbed and the other would be like you had to take a really really massive shit the size of a baby that you had to struggle to push out. Me personally would probably go for the child birth but I just don't want to experience the pain of getting kicked there again (soccer accident).

Childbirth, in my opinion. To settle this once and for all, wasn't there a man who got pregnant and got famous from it? Ask him, I say.
