(RNN) - This is a must watch video for every man ... and woman ... on the planet.
Two Dutch men who host a television show can now say they have some insight into the pain of childbirth.
Dennis Storm and Valerio Zeno who host Guinea Pigs do crazy things for their audience.
In 2011, they made international headlines for allegedly consuming each other's flesh. It turned out that was a hoax ... whew.
During the episode called Dennis and Valerio Get Contractions, both were fitted with adhesive electrodes that delivered shocks to their abdomen in a procedure meant to simulate labor pains.
Watch it for yourself. (It's in Dutch, but you can click the "CC" icon in the lower right side of the screen for English captions.)
The good stuff starts around the 4:30 mark, but you can watch their nervousness start at around the 3:30 mark.
Needless to say, it's probably a good thing the women give birth and not men.
The contractions (electro stimulation) were timed and controlled. They increased in intensity, duration, and the time between the contractions was decreased as their experiment charged on.
Although the men laugh off the pain at first, they end up howling and yelling in distress as the simulated contractions intensify and become more frequent.
The men last a whopping two hours before succumbing to the pain.
According to the Mayo Clinic, early labor can last for hours, or sometimes days. Active labor typically lasts up to eight hours.
Zeno said the challenge was "torture" and wonders if he wants his wife to go through the same pain.
However, this isn't the first time a male show host has gone through simulated labor pains.
Dr. Andrew Rochford went through a similar situation for Australian TV show What's Good For You in 2009.
"To all you women out there, I used to think that I understood what it was like to go through labor," Rochford said. "But, men of the world, you have no idea. Forget the whole pain threshold debate. We have nothing. Women win."
