    Mate, I think you might be wearing them wrong... If you've put it in properly you're gonna have to try pretty hard to get it out without pulling on the string!
    Its only happened a couple of times. I think it was on a day when i was wearing the smallest tampons and was a bit constipated. But i do think that i dont always put them in very far, but they're never uncomfortable so they must be far enough in ?

    You do get guys in cubicles together in pubs and clubs where I'm from, but it's normally because they're snorting coke in there. When I worked in such a pub the manager tried to stop it by putting artex on all the flat surfaces :rofl:
    I never see the point in that or making angled surfaces - I mean, nearly everyone has a key on them...

    I've even heard of bagheads drawing biro on their arms to avoid the blue lights.

    Men have higher pain thresholds than women...child birth wouldn't be a problem and they would push the baby out a lot quicker as well.

    I think females don't understand how much a bloke really doesn't give a toss about yours and your friends pathetic little non dramas. For example my friend told me two pretty major pieces of news this week, I have barely gave it a second thought or felt compelled to tell anyone.
    Most women know the difference between pain threshold and pain tolerance.......actually I think most men do too, perhaps it's just you. Being a jerk isn't really something to be proud of, and considering that you can't spell or punctuate correctly, you should think about having something to fall back on.

    You are making ridiculous generalisations, not all girls are the same nor are all guys. If you actually talk to people like this, I'm surprised you actually have a friend. Also gossip actually fulfills a very important rule in society, and males gossip just as much as girls do, just generally on different topics.

    I'm sorry, but this just made me laugh. How long it takes you to push the baby out has little to do with how much pain you're in and it's going to be an intensely painful experience for whichever gender is adapted to do it.

    Where did I say it is...men are stronger and more determined so would push the baby out quicker. From what my mum says the pain of giving birth isn't that bad, more fear than anything the first time, after that they're a doddle.

    Passing kidney stones is more painful than child birth....you don't hear men whinging about that all the time. Child birth is a pathetic way for females to sound hardcore when they're just not....most don't have the determination to actually push themselves through pain and hang on to this fallacy.

    The baby isn't supposed to be pushed out quickly or it can cause problems, the woman has to use the contractions in order to get the baby out :^_^:

    Personally I vote for getting hair stuck under your foreskin or even in your urethra. My girlfriend's head hairs are always getting in there and it's the worst because they're so long...



    I really couldn't be a woman, all that endless worrying about what other people might think of you from make-up, clothes, what you eat to simply dealing with your period. It would drive me to drink
    Used up all my rep for today, so you're getting a + tomorrow.

    That's the sort of thing that as soon as you tell me, both our eyes will flash that expression of mutual sympathy and understanding. Getting hair stuck there is just the first part - then you've got the countdown from 3 and the grimace when you tug it out which was not unlike the time you sat down too quickly on a, anyway, you get it.

    Oh really? I don't think anyone here would exist if their mothers hadn't pushed themselves through the pain.

    As for not having the determination, I'm pretty sure most women do. Parents have a connection to their unborn child, there is obviously going to be determination to get the child out, regardless of gender.

    I mean in general....then child birth comes along and they've backed themselves in a corner and have no choice too. Which they find tough because they've never actually pushed themselves through pain before.

    This.

    Also girls won't know how embarrassing it is for us when someone sits on your lap and your little fella wants to spring into action :erm: I'm convinced that they know what's going on.

    Another icky one.

    How you can't squeeze a fart or poo out when you're wearing a tampon else you squeeze the tampon out to unless you're some kind of superhuman that can control muscles in that area perfectly, in the same way some women poop when they're giving birth ...
    I giggled hard at this one
