New York, Jan 19: Two Dutch TV hosts, who were not content simply sympathizing with women over labour pains, received shocks to their abdomens in a controlled experiment to simulate the agony of giving birth on their program 'Proefkonijnen' (Guinea Pigs).
According to Belgian based news outlet RTL.be, electrodes sent charges into Dennis Storm and Valerio Zeno's bodies, which were intended to cause cramps as excruciating as the contractions of childbirth, the New York Daily News reported.
The hosts reportedly received the shocks for two hours as they groaned and yelled, coiling up into a foetal position and clutching their pillows.
The two women who administered the shocks were calm and collected as they explained the process to Storm and Zeno and led them through the experiment.
After the experiment finished they gave the men a baby doll and pink cookies.
Storm and Zeno are known for performing outlandish stunts on their program, on a previous episode, they claimed to have eaten chunks of each other's flesh to figure out what it tastes like. (ANI)
