Henry McKean, Grown Man, Screams During Labor Simulation (VIDEO)

Fact: Women give birth to babies every day and men do not. But that doesn't stop a number of guys from going to great lengths to find out what it feels like.

According to the station, the 34-year-old was strapped into electrodes that simulate labor pains at a maternity hospital called The Birth Hotel. There, a team of Dutch scientists hope to give even more men the real labor experience. McKean could only handle it for 2 hours and 15 minutes.

Others who have gone in for the challenge fared about as well, some with hilarious results. In January, a Dutch TV hosts posted video of themselves screaming through their labor simulation which quickly went viral. And for Mother's Day, two American men did this as a gift/apology to their own moms. Plus, earlier this year, GQ writer Bejamin Percy documented his longer pregnancy experiment experiment; he wore a pregnancy simulation suit for a full nine weeks. Percy's takeaway? "I’m not man enough to be a woman."
