    If 12% of a group of girls say that they masturbate then 88% of that group is lying This isn't the 1880's, people have urges :rolleyes:
    Some of them are really religious (and weird!) so I'm pretty sure some of them don't. Still, out of our group of 9 then are at least a few others who do
    I'm not ashamed of talking about it with strangers online, but I wouldn't risk talking about it with someone I know in case they get all weird about. I think girls that don't do it assume no one else does and find it disgusting.

    A friend once admitted she masturbated to a guy friend and I know girls who didnt speak to her for a week. It was pretty *****y of him to tell everyone as well. Another friend admitted she regularly pisses in the shower but would never admit to masturbating.

    And the unbelievable relief of taking off your bra after a long day.

    Edit: she told the guy friend she masturbates. She doesn't actually masturbate to him. I assume.

    I honestly didn't know that girls had such a taboo over flicking the bean every once in a while Any girl I've asked has admitted to it. Granted that's a grand old total of 4 but still.

    Guys don't think it's an excuse; they think it's a reason, and girls deny it more often than they use it to justify their bad moods. Maybe the negs indicate something besides denial - maybe they indicate that guys think you're wrong about what they think.
    I wasn't saying you don't believe in it. You said 'we're widely aware of that' and I said actually a lot of boys and girls who don't get it think it doesn't actually exist. And there have been replies to her post such as 'I'm still skeptical'.

    I assumed everyone pees in the shower?

    How many people have you heard of that have died from being kicked in the balls? Now compare that to the number of women that have died in childbirth. :rolleyes:
    Yes, but they don't die from the pain of childbirth do they?

    This is about the pain, not the complications arising due to / as part of the pain.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6AdFdmE9A84 a video of a man experiencing the pain of childbirth. You're welcome.
    I really hate **** like this. Women have a goal during childbirth, they have a real motive. Men have no motive to undergo the pain of childbirth so any experiment into whether they can withstand the pain of childbirth is completely flawed.

    I think when you're in such extreme amount of pain any sort of reasoning disappears. All you can think about is the pain.

    Edit: The childbirth itself - the physical strain from it - is often a contributing reason for postnatal depression.

    Yes but they still have

    1) A goal/end point
    2) No choice

    They don't have the option of stopping the pain, therefore they always will go through it. It doesn't mean that women can withstand more pain than men.

    Although scientists are beginning to understand how pain works, so one day we may have an objective measure of pain.

    If we're talking simply about the pain - no other factors included - childbirth is worse than being kicked in the balls. Fact.

    No. There is no objective measure. Not unless you have both a vagina and testicles, and even that would be subjective.

    You couldn't possibly say that you have experienced being kicked in the balls, so you don't really know. Therefore it's not fact. It is opinion with no evidence.

    If you watched the video - the 'experiment' was first tested on a woman who has experienced child birth to make sure it is accurate. And then on the man. So I think this is as close to an objective test as you will get.

    Again, back to the first point - motive.

    This has gone in circles, I don't think you will accept that there is no objective measure of pain and that no one person can tell truly whether the pain is similar.

    Plus that was 1 man, you need a much larger sample size, but the experiment is flawed from the beginning so that won't work either.
