Male Sensitivity

The room was full of pregnant women with their partners. The class was in full swing. The instructor was teaching the women how to breathe and was telling the men how to give the necessary help and assurance to their partners at this stage of the pregnancy.

She said, "Ladies, remember that exercise is good for you. Walking is especially beneficial. It strengthens the pelvic muscles and will make delivery that much easier." Just pace yourself, make plenty of stops and try to stay on a soft surface like grass or a path."

She looked at the men in the room, "Gentlemen, remember -- you're in this together. It wouldn't hurt you to go walking with your partner. In fact, that shared experience would be good for you both."

The room suddenly got very quiet as the men absorbed this information. After a few moments, a man named Chuck at the back of the room slowly raised his hand.

"Yes," said the Instructor.

"I was just wondering if it would be all right if she carries a golf bag while we walk?"

  6. To which the doctor would reply. "Now be a true gentleman and carry her golf bag for her. You also need plenty of exercise as you seem to be gaining some sympathy weight there too buster."
