I propose we capture Duane and lock him in a Georgia O'Keefe museum. It is the only cure for his terrible phobia of watching his family members (old Aunt Matilda?) give birth. wink

Apologies in advance�this thread is giving me the giggles.

New idea: You know how they have doulas, and birthing coaches...with the popularity of having audiences watching while women give birth, a doula is just not enough anymore. We need coaches for the audience members to help them get through watching it without passing out, vomiting, or saying the wrong thing. I'm not sure what they're called yet.

I have to laugh at Duane's replusion - my husband is the exact same way! I don't think he'd be comfortable with half the free world looking at me while I'm in a compromised position, regardless of their professional status.

He's also just plain squeamish about blood/guts stuff in general, and even when we were fence-sitters, he had NO INTEREST whatsoever in "experiencing" the whole birthing process. And although he's an addict of the discovery channel/learning channel, he is loath to watch "a baby story" or other shows about birthing.

I dinna mind if ya laugh at me or with me -- that's the way I am. I'm way too empathic for other people's conditions/feelings for my own good.

Actually, the main things that I record to watch are programs from the Discovery Channel/TLC/History Channel, etc (in HD too). Anything scientific (asteroids/comets colliding with us, historical narratives about events in the past, documentaries about airplanes, etc) excites me.

However, I draw the line on a) medical shows (especially where they show needles going in someone...EEEEWWWWW), b) surgery shows (where they peel back the cloth and the scalpel starts to cut in (CLICK) channel changed [needless to say, I don't like movies like Saw 99 :)] and c) "A Baby Story" or "A Wedding Story" or "Bridezillas" or other stuff like that -- once again, I say "Yuck!"

Maybe that is why I am as nice as I am. If so, that's a burden I'll just have to handle myself Ok, maybe not by myself -- I think my wife doesn't mind "sharing" that burden with me smile smile

Duane, your programming tastes sound nearly identical to my husband's! Personally, I can only watch the evolution of cheese making on Modern Marvels so many times before my head explodes! Although I will confess to loving the shows on engineering disasters - more so because I'm married to and work with civil engineers <smirk>. I know...it's a twisted sense of humor.

Back on topic, a guy I used to work with and his wife recently had their 6th kid, and the older kids were present in the delivery room when she gave birth!!! Now how creepy is THAT??? Uhm, there's some fodder for future therapy! Yikes.

My co-workers cousin has just found out she's pregnant. She told everyone on Facebook today that she is going to take pics of herself naked every month, and post them on Facebook so we can all see how the pregnancy is progressing.

She's a porn actress, so the naked bit doesn't bother her. But WHY? WHY does anyone want to see that? And FYI, Demi Moore did the artistic-pregnant bit a long time ago, you need a new angle!!

Honey, I don't want my husband to see that, either. I don't want to see that. It IS a sexy body part! If that ever happened, no one would ever get close to that area again!

I know people think it's an immature view, but who cares?

Also, I don't know why so many people are sometimes in the delivery room. I would NEVER want anyone in my family in there!!! Hell, I don't even want my parents to know that I have sex!

Ok, I guess my limit is watching cheese being made -- but I do love watching the whys and wherefores of big buildings, ships, planes, etc crashing, being destroyed, etc. It's a guilty pleasure. We are equally twisted in that respect smile

Yep -- I think being in the same room as the doctors, etc with younger children should be grounds for removal of the children from the parents, as it is a form of child abuse/emotional torture.

Yuckers! frown
