I'm not making this bizzare fact up. The July-August 2004 issue of mental_floss reports at page 41:
[T]he Huichol Indian trive of Mexico believed that Dad should share in the pain experienced by his wife during childbirth. A woman in labor would lie in a hut, while her husband sat in the rafters above her. [Prepare to wince.] A rope was tied around his testicles, and when his wife felt a painful contraction, she would tug at the rope so that he could join in the "experience."
