Do you have a high or low tolerance for pain, and do men or women have a higher pain threshold?


Is it just a myth that women have babies because men couldn't handle the pain or is it true that women have a higher tolerance for pain? Do you cry when you prick your finger or just shake it off when you break an arm?

    "Best Answer!" Ha!Ha! Although I won't be a credible adviser here 'cause I'm a man :) I think you're right about this. Very reasonable, practical, and observational. I think men can take more pain. Find that article!

    I am going to have to agree with you on this one and add that people who have experienced more pain (me/ accident prone Annie)) tolerate it maybe a little better because of the other intense pain we've suffered.
