This is a question Body Horror

Mictoboy writes, "I once picked a spot on my cheek only for a half-inch long ingrown hair to coil out covered in pus."

How has your own body made you recoil in disgust?

My missus had a natural childbirth, albeit induced, owing to mini-me being in an odd position and seemingly in some distress.

She wanted me in the room with her, and I agreed. However, we both agreed some months before, that my eyes should stay north of the equator, and for that, I am eternally happy. I really didn't want to see her bits in a state of severe distress. I have seen many recordings of other births, good and bad - but I had no desire to see my girl's body in that state.

At the end of it, the amount of blood on the floor was up in the 'mop and bucket' range. It looked like something from a slasher flick, but with the super-clean highly polished, clean white tiles of the delivery suite.

She was was pale through blood loss, tired, worn and very badly torn, but ever so happy. My wee lad then flipped the bird to me, and latched.

The immortal words of a dear and departed mate who had practised medicine for a good fifty years in Australia mostly, and PNG for a while, still ring in my ears: "Why women want to do this to themselves is beyond me." He was a father of three. He left this place a few days short of his ninetieth birthday, with a smile on his face, just over a year ago. He was a joker during his lifetime, and doubtless he had a funny thought during those terminal moments.

The prize for the most horror that a human body can display to its owner? Childbirth - by a country mile.

Really, the worst?
Google some images of Fournier's gangrene and you may feel differently.

Cannot unsee. Thanks, mate!

All else I see will be akin to pretty flowers.

As a ladygirl, why other women would want to go through this is beyond me too!
Bring on the not-so-dystopian future with warehouses full of artificial uteri, I say.
