    I think their conclusion is good – pain is subjective. Hypnosis for example, can help medicine-free painless birthing.

    However, for run-of-the-mill births, I think females have it worse. Getting kicked in the balls is super painful for 10 minutes, but labor can last up to 24 hours! That’s like getting kicked in the balls every 10 minutes 316 times consecutively. Not fun.

    I’m disappointed in this one.

    When you can’t measure two things objectively, it’s unscientific, and irrational, to just say “TIE!”

    The scientific answer is “I don’t know”.

    I agree, Adam. I’ve had three of those damned things, and every nurse I ever talked to said she’d rather give birth. Labor lasts at most a few days, my last stone took 8 months.
