Guys, let’s get real: at some point in your life, you’ve either thought or said out loud something to the effect of, “period pains can’t be that bad, right? So what’s the big fuss?”

Well, some fellas put their money where their mouths are and decided to give a period pain simulator a try…and I think they all learned a valuable lesson about how much pain women really go through.

The people behind the TikTok account Some Days frequently bring simulators out in public to get men to get a taste of period pain. This cowboy at the Calgary Stampede in Canada gave it a shot…and I think it’s safe to say that he has a new outlook on period pain.

And then this couple was hooked up to the simulator…see how each of them responded.
