Recently, a group of men volunteered to undergo electro-stimulations to mimic contractions! Led by foolishness or curiosity, they wanted to know what it was like for their wives to give birth. Only one man lasted the full thirty seconds.
Half a minute? Really? My labors were induced and lasted over 11 hours.

The 35-year-old mom thought she had plenty of time for a little pre-delivery pampering, but to her shock, her water broke during her foot massage and the baby was born almost immediately afterward.
