pain experience camp

A labor pain experience lab set up by a maternity hospital in the Chinese city of Jinan to allow men to experience the sensations of childbirth. The camp uses pain simulators that deliver electric shocks on the abdomen of men to simulate 10 levels of the pain, similar to what women feel during contractions.

The camp's goal is to create awareness and respect for childbearing women. After many female patients complained that their partners never understood what they felt and offered very little sympathy towards them, the hospital came up with a technique in order to make expectant fathers experience the pain of childbirth.

Hospital technicians administer only as much pain as they expect a volunteer to be capable of coping with. Most volunteers cannot take more than a few minutes of it.
