Kitsu’s Afternoon “News” – Men, Women, & Pain Tolerance.

Reported in Discovery News on 12 August 2010.

Scientific evidence corroborating what what suspected (by me, at least), that women experience more pain than men, has been found. It was also found that their are ties to gender roles and pain tolerance levels. It’s an interesting article that suggests physiological response differences to pain between men and women in addition to psychological ones, further confusing the studies of nature vs nurture and how such things relate to the overall role that gender plays in life.
