Holistic plastic surgeon Dr Anthony Youn posted a video on his TikTok account where he attempted to solve the age old debate.
The medic from Detroit, US, said: "Dudes say: 'getting kicked in the balls is more painful than having a baby.'"
Staring directly into the camera, he went on: "Oh is it, tough guy?" Before going on to explained: "The average woman pushes for at least 20 minutes when in labour.
"So, let's put this to the test. Why don't I kick YOU in the balls for 20 minutes straight and let's see if you can handle it... big purple ball boy."
I feel unqualified to be commenting but it sounds like he's got a point... doesn't it?
Since posting the thought provoking clip on his page, Dr Youn wrote: "Today I woke up and chose creepy violence!"
The post has since had over 6.5 million likes and more than 140,000 comments with nearly 235,000 shares.
One person wrote: "I pushed for one hour and 20 minutes with no epidural and tore from V [vagina] to A [anus] and tore my cervix and had to have 100+ stiches... but ok boys."
Another pointed out: "Not to mention the hours of contractions prior."
Sharing another horror story, a third commented: "My friend was in labour for 26 hours and pushed for four hours, no meds either. Idk [I don't know] how she did it."
A guy agreed, saying: "I'm a boy and I agree because isn't it obvious that getting kicked in the balls hurts less I've gotten kicked there and tbh [to be honest] it didn't hurt too much."
Still arguing the point for the fellas, one bloke wrote: "Yeah EXACTLY we couldn't handle it cause it would hurt too bad and we would pass out because of too much pain." You keep telling yourself that, fella.
Another pointed out: "Not all the boys telling a certified doctor that he's wrong."
Another user agreed: "All the boys pressed because they know they couldn't handle it."
