Describing crampy PMS-y periods

A male friend of mine once asked me why women were so unhappy when they were menstruating. At the time I just sort of gave him a dazed look and said "It hurts! And blood!" and then swiped the chocolate he'd bought me and went to curl up with my heated pad. (He was an awesome friend).

Ever since then I've been pondering how I could have answered him, and I may have come up with a good metaphor. You can even do a demonstration!


Take a mostly empty ketchup bottle and then squeeze it FOR A WEEK STRAIGHT.

Bonus: I am both the ketchup bottle and your poor cramping arm muscles. Think about that. THINK ABOUT IT. How do you think that ketchup bottle feels?</i>

Cramp-having people, any ideas for fun/useful explanations of cramps for the curious?
