Male TV Show Hosts Endure Two Hours of Simulated Labor Before Calling It Quits (VIDEO)

Dennis Storm and Valerio Zeno, the Dutch TV stunt duo from Proefkonijnen (Guinea Pigs), are at it again.

You may remember them from 2011, when they were almost slapped with a lawsuit for what appeared to be dining on each other’s flesh. After that, we’ve never been able to mention their names without throwing up in our mouths a little. (Okay, so the stunt turned out to be a hoax, but still!)

Their latest experiment is a bit easier on the stomach. For us moms, anyway!

Get this, ladies: In an effort to experience how much pain women really go through when they’re giving birth, the twosome suffered through simulated labor pains doled out using electro-stimulations to their abdomens. And they taped it all for a segment that aired on Dutch TV last week, which you can watch below.

Storm and Zeno got through two hours of gut-wrenching simulation and then called it quits. So what was their assessment of the experiment? “Torture.” You said it! Childbirth is crazy painful — even for big, strong men.

Our problem with the boys thinking they were settling anything about feeling the worst pain imaginable? They didn’t have to push a baby through their bodies, and they turned the machines off when they couldn’t take it anymore. Hate to break it to you both, but babies don’t work that way!
