    I have no experience but my mom told me stories when she was giving birth to my sis and i. You take this numbing medicine but it didn't work for my mom when's she was giving birth to me. She could feel her ribs separating and the feel if her ..... ripping open.
    Pretty sure getting kicked in the balls does hurt tho cuz boys have 2 testicals and I herd it's pretty painful if you get kicked there. Cuz 1 of them can get stuck in something. This is just from stories shows movies and youtube. I say birth is worse tho cuz YOUR BODY IS RIPPING. YOUR .... IS RIPPING OPEN!!!! Probly a 60% (for women) and 40% (for men). Hope this didn't gross you if you didn't know any of this happend.

    Men we have boobs when we get hit in the boobs it hurts like crap but here we are not dead and pushing babies out of our vaginas. I would also like to add that I see a lot of comments about how well we didn't ask to be kicked in the nuts women don't ask to have a baby because they want the pain they as to have a baby because they want the baby and if going threw tremendous amounts of pain to have this child is what it takes they will.

    Getting hit in the balls- getting shot by a bullet really fast and quickly dying for a few moments you feel misery
    Going through labour- going through misery for up to 8 hrs-72 hrs and slowly dying like you are sick
    This is not comparing to dying, I'm just making an example!

    All these people here are like "If men felt the pain of child birth"
    Yeah, you can choose to birth a child. Men can't choose to live in a world without angry feminists
    Despite the fact, woman have evolved for millions of years to give birth. Men haven't evolved to not get hit in the balls. The sight is enough to cause pain.

    Plus, that's all childish shit...
    Living in a mostly far left/SJW area is the most pain anyone has to go through.

    Well, medically speaking, men can die from being kicked in the balls due to the shock and the pain. Women do not die from pain alone of child-birth; rather mixture of complications.
    With that said, they are different kind of pains and debating who hurts more is, non-sense. It both hurts. And it doesn't make one gender "more stronger" than the other (or which pain is worse). It's comparing apples to oranges.

  • yazzy50i5
    yazzy50i5 3 days ago

    One to one I don't think there's any good argument to prove that getting kicked in the balls is more painful than childbirth (I am a man who has never and obviously will never experience childbirth, but from where I stand, there's one clear winner here). But that being said, most women give birth maybe once or twice in their lifetime, but men will almost certainly be hit in the balls considerably more than that. Plus there is no reward from being hit in the balls. Only fear for your potential future children (or maybe lack there of). It is also almost always the choice of the mother to have children which entails the pain of childbirth. There is also the option for C-section (which is by no means painless but it's another option nonetheless). I can't see any situation in which getting kicked in the balls brings any sort of reward, unlike childbirth which has an amazing reward on the other side of the ordeal. Periods on the other hand I have more sympathy for. Many women have immense pain every month because of it and there is no way to avoid having them (besides birth control and things of the like but periods come periodically unlike getting kicked in the balls which is random and usually still more infrequent). Just for clarification I would like to reiterate my first point by saying that I do firmly believe that the pain of childbirth far surpasses that of getting kicked in the balls. I just think it is hard to compare an event that occurs maybe once or twice in a lifetime (for most people) and has an amazing result, to something that can happen significantly more often with absolutely no reward.

    1. Men y’all don’t have periods
    2. Men y’all can’t give birth
    3. Women y’all don’t have balls
    4. Women y’all can’t get kicked in the balls
    Nobody can feel both pain just sayin’. Women have it worse tbh is that even a question cause I know some people have been in labour for a day. What guy says he’s felt pain from his private place for a day because he got kicked :/ Women push babies out of themselves so WTF do you know how painful it is? It’s like you’re burning and you’re screaming for the most part. Men if you get married and you see your wife giving birth you know how painful it fricking *looks*? I’ve seen 2 people get kicked in the balls but my grandma gave birth to 6 kids and my great grandma had 9. Yeah so this shouldn’t really need explaining

  • Jeanne Santillana

    What's the point of asking this question? It's always women that start the debate too. Why should a man care that labor is painful? And how can you know that labor is more painful than nutcracking? All you know is that it lasts longer. Don't even bother replying with a butthurt (or should I say vaginahurt?) comment.

    It’s not a tie. I’m sorry but I extremely disagree with this. Women are in pain and discomfort for a average of 8 HOURS and pain killers can only do so much. When men get kicked in the balls yes it hurts for the few minutes after the initial kick and then also the lingering pain for another few minutes but they can get over pretty quickly. Yeah they can puke but women shit themselves while giving birth and then also a woman’s vagina, which is the size of a coin, is widening to the size of a watermelon or bigger to push out a HUMAN CHILD!! Yes everyone perceived pain differently but a woman is pushing another person out of them.

    • Jocelyn Debritto
      Jocelyn Debritto 3 days ago

      Jiminy Cricket it can but that doesn’t mean it will every single time I’ve watched guys get hit in the balls hard and they yes initially doubled over in pain. But then after a few minutes stand back up and be totally fine. I’m not saying that it’s the same for every man but that’s what happens with most people that I’ve seen.

    • Jiminy Cricket
      Jiminy Cricket 3 days ago

      Why does everyone think it hurts for a few minutes? It doesn't. It hurts whole lot longer than that. You can feel the effects up to a couple of hours after the initial punch. You can't move. You can't eat. You can't go to toilet. You literally can't do anything. And it can happen any day, at any given time.

    IS THIS EVEN A QUESTION?!?!?! A WOMAN IS LITTRALLY BEING RIPPED APART AND PEOPLE THINK THAT PAIN IN THE BALLS IS EQUAL TO THAT!?! Woman give birth for hours on end while a pain in the nuts last for maximum of 30-1h. Some women even give birth to twins! What would your mother think of this! I have completely lost hope in humanity. Guys think they have it all rough all the time, girls don't go through the same pain as guys, that's all a lie! Why is this even an argument!!!!!!

    • Jiminy Cricket
      Jiminy Cricket 3 days ago

      Length vs recurrence and duration vs intensity. Most women give birth two or three times in their life. Guys get nutpunched far more often. Women feel continuous pain of immense intensity. Guys feel instant pain that completely cripples them for a length of time that can vary depending on the punch. It's a really stupid debate, because two simply can't be measured, they are different categories. I can tell you that I'm not willing to feel any of the two.

    Women have hormons which prevent the agony of childbirth. So maybe they feel less pain than men , but it does not change the fact that for women it lasts for a much longer peroid,so i respect that for them it is worse, but i think maybe the highest peak of the pain when we get kicked in the nuts can be worse because we can not really lower the pain 😅 peace🙏
