The Pain Of Childbirth: Apparently The Male Equivalent Has Been Identified

New research has found what some men deem to be the male equivalent to the pain of giving birth – and it’s not what you might expect…

Football fans have admitted that the pain of having a club relegated is the male equivalent to the pain of childbirth. Yep, you read that correctly.

It would appear that some footy fans are so obsessed with the game that they think the let downs that come with it hurt as much as giving birth does.

In a study conducted by polling company TLF, on behalf of football club Warren United, it was revealed that 63 per cent of season ticket holders think that their heartbreak at their team being relegated hurts as much as having a baby.

Even the fans who only go to one game each season agreed.

‘I’ve seen childbirth twice and relegation five times,’ says Pete May, author of Hammers in the Heart: A Lifetime of Supporting West Ham. ‘Childbirth does look look very painful but it only lasts a few hours. The pain of relegation lasts all summer. And beyond.’

Right. So, what do you think of this comparison? Let us know in the comments box below.
