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!
