When you think of the Pain Olympics, you may imagine insane and foolish competitors who film themselves mutilating their own genitals.
If so, you are not alone. Due to a viral video now found on many sites, most see the contest as nothing but deliberate damage to the genitals.
However, does the competition only involve genital mutilation? Perhaps it includes other forms of genital mutilation, but only at a much lower level (such as genital piercings using various objects). Does it also involve other daredevil stunts that have nothing to do with the genitals?

When Was The First Recorded Ancient Olympic Games?
The ancient Olympic Games was originally nothing more than a celebration for the Greek sky and thunder god, Zeus. The festival later included various sports such as a javelin contest, a footrace, boxing and wrestling matches. The first Olympics took place in 776 BC. They were staged in Olympia, Greece, and went on through 393 AD. Interestingly, the events did not return until over 1500 years later, with the first modern Olympics held in Athens, Greece, in 1896.
One can only imagine what participants back then would think about the sports of today. Even more, the most painful and disgusting sport in the world — the Pain Olympics.
What Is Body Modification Ezine (BME)?
Even if you don’t participate in body modification, you may have heard of Body Modification Ezine (BMEzine.com). It is a popular online magazine that was launched on December 6, 1994.
The website is a great resource on various forms of body modification including tattoos, piercing, scarification modification, castration (which involves removal of the male sexual organs) and much more. BME is the first body modification site to enter the World Wide Web.
The BME site holds BME BBQs where followers of the magazine meet up. The BMEFest is the largest of the BME BBQs. The event usually takes place on Canada Day in Toronto, Ontario. In addition to food, fireworks and other festivities, the Pain Olympics is also held at the BMEFest.
According to an article on KnowYourMeme.com, the first Pain Olympics were inspired by games that occurred during the BME BBQs. One was from the 2001 BME BBQ, where the contests included attendees who participated in forehead pulling, drinking hot sauce and dangerous suspensions. The name “Pain Olympics” wasn’t used until the 2003 BMEFest in Tweed, Ontario.
Freak show performer Erik Sprague (known as The Lizardman) was a contestant at one of the events.
The Most Disturbing Shock Video Ever: Real or Fake?
Shannon Larratt was a Canadian business owner and creator of BMEzine.com. His skills as an artist and film producer came in handy as he developed the original video that many still believe is real. The title is BME Pain Olympics: Final Round. Two men use various objects to perform genital self-mutilation while the song “Livin’ Like a Zombie” by Mortification (released in 2004) plays in the background. If you are interested in seeing the short clip, visit the link below.
Where You Can Watch The “Final Round“
You can watch the fake 1:12 clip on ShockChan.com. If you read their video description, they describe the competition as pure genital mutilation.
An Important Part Left Out Of The Video
The original video on the BME website includes the same footage that is shown on several other publications. However, there is one significant difference. In the original source found on BME, at the end is a message that claims the entire video is fake. However, the message does not show on other sites with the same clip. This explains why it is a well-known shock video. It also explains why more people seem to believe it is genuine, and not the work of professional actors. Many consider it to be one of the most disturbing videos ever played on the Internet.
Larratt himself admitted the viral video was fake. However, he claimed that other torture trailers and related clips on BME are real, with some containing even more extreme brutal footage than the fake.
A Common Misconception About The Contest
Due to the faked and famous BME video, many think of the Pain Olympics as nothing but contestants who make video clips of themselves doing the most brutal stuff to their genitals.
Although these acts are part of the event, as you can see from pictures in the below screenshot taken directly from BME.com (including the screenshot which showed various images of the BMEFest), there is more to it. Of course, you can see plenty of acts that likely involved a lot of physical pain. However, you may also notice that none of the images show genital mutilation.

Due to a rare muscle disease, Larratt died at the age of 39.

Joe Rogan Shows His Friend A Video More Disgusting Than 2 Girls 1 Cup
Joe Rogan’s friend shows him the 2 Girls 1 Cup video for the first time. The footage shows two women defecate into a cup. They go as far as to consume the feces, and even puke into each other’s mouths.
Then, Rogan introduces a BME Pain Olympic video to his friend. Despite having experience watching shock videos, his friend obviously did not enjoy this one.
The contest may be gorier and even more brutal than the fake video on BME and other sites. Since the Pain Olympics really does include daredevil participants who videotape themselves mutilating their own genitals, it surely is the most painful competition in the world today.
