What's worse- getting hit in nuts, or giving birth?

When I first suggested to my wife that this was the next topic of my blog, she called me an idiot. She then also said I should write it.

I'll point out that I am happily married, and have a young son. So I have experienced the miracle and horror of child birth first hand. Obviously from a safe, pain free, distance.

I'll qualify my position straight up, I will never be able to argue that a single episode of nut impact versus giving birth are comparable. Despite much male blustering about being able to squeeze them out at half time in the pub shitter, I know that giving birth is much more painful than a single bollock collision. We've all seen and heard the animalistic, soul shaking, roar of a woman mid drop thanks to one born every minute.

So where's my argument? Well here you go-

1. Getting hit in the nuts is always a surprise.

Most women, in most cases, know they are going to give birth. Although they may not know how painful it will get, they can steel themselves, ready for the moment.

A man is always surprised when he gets hit in the nuts.

2. Getting hit in the nuts is never planned.

Most women will plan a pregnancy, or at least, stop taking precautions.

A man will never, knowingly, plan to get hit in the nuts.

3. Getting hit in the nuts can happen a lot.

Women have a finite number of times they can give birth.

A man can get a shot in the pods hundreds of times.

4. There's no sympathy for getting hit in the nuts.

A woman will be comforted by those she loves after giving birth.

A man will, at best, get a slap on the shoulder by a chuckling friend as he wipes away tears of laughter.

So there you have it. Conclusive prove and a stone cold argument if ever I saw it.

Whatever side of the debate you stand on here's some clips that are very funny, and make you glad that none of them happened to you-


  1. As a compassionate fellow male parent, my first thought upon reading this was one of outrage at just how heartless a member of the blogging community could be in suggesting that the inconvenience of childbirth could even approach the transcendent experience of being hit in the nuts.

    1. You're offended? You must be new to the Internet....

  2. I agree with this entirely having seen childbirth first hand and also being hit in the knackers on many occasions, I can only see this as a one sided argument in favour of getting hit in the nads.

  3. Oh come the guy who made this was just joking around ^^ Yall needa take a joke :P

  4. The response is common enough that it's no big surprise certain particular projects like these are among the world's generally famous. Acheter des noix de cajou
