It has been suggested that being kicked in the groin hurts just as much, if not more, than child birth. This AsapSCIENCE tackles this battle of the sexes question. Instead of taking one side and pleading its case, this video weighs both options while explaining what pain is.
Instead of just being another rant, this video addresses the science of both pain and perception. Since pain is subjective therefore pain can’t be measured, one cannot determine if getting kicked in the groin results in more pain than child birth, or vice versa.
This just goes to show not everything has a black or white answer. Some things may forever be a mystery.
That old saying “love is a drug” is actually based on science. According to AsapSCIENCE, your brain on love looks a lot like your brain on cocaine as it acts on the pleasure thresholds of your brain. Short story: When you’re in love, you actually begin to build a romanticized view of the world around you and feel really good a lot easier.
“The Science of Love” explains why people fall in love with each other, even though science still knows very little about exactly how it works. You might remember them from their video “Amazing Facts to Blow Your Mind and “The Science of Morning Wood.” Though this one is timed perfectly for Valentine’s Day!
I’m hitting my midday slump and really needed to be reminded of these amazing facts that will BLEW MY MIND. AsapSCIENCE dug up some pretty crazy figures that might make your head explode.
How about these doozies: One percent of the world’s population is drunk at any moment. Koalas, iguanas and Komodo Dragons all have two penises. If the population of China walked past you in a single file line, it would take about 30 years considering the rate of reproduction. WHAT?!

Here’s the Sex-Ed lesson you never got in school!
Why do men tend to wake up with “morning wood?” AsapSCIENCE looks at the “hard” facts and some of the biology of an erection in this highly scientific video. While I might have to watch it a couple times to really understand, it’s way more effective than what my stuttering, out-of-touch gym teacher taught us in heath class.
Some YouTube users suggested some questions for their next video too: “What is love? Why do we feel it when we see that special person?” “Why does sport drinks work?” and “How do our emotions work?”
What question do you want them to take on next?
