Childbirth vs. Getting Kicked in the Balls – What is More Painful?

What do you think is more painful? Childbirth or getting kicked in the balls? Well, considering how it is virtually impossible for each gender to experience both, it would be difficult to find the right answer.

Of course, most women would claim childbirth is more painful while most men would say getting kicked in the balls is definitely more painful.

The best answer can be found through science by trying to quantify the amount of pain; however, there really is no unit to measure pain. So, how is pain going to be measured now?

According to AsapSCIENCE, pain is relative. For example, with all conditions kept constant and the amount of pressure/pain the same, different people would feel different levels of pain.

So, one woman might feel that childbirth was more painful yet another would say it wasn’t as painful as she expected. This also holds true in men.

Now, given that, what do you think is the best answer to the debate on what is more painful, childbirth or getting kicked in the balls?
