Editors Note: After I read the following post several times, I almost didn't publish it. It very well might get me uninvited from some home games and shunned by this illustrious community. At the very least, you can read it and think, "Well, at least I don't have to do THAT in my job." Proceed at your own peril.
I mentioned in a previous post that I do a lot of testicular ultrasounds. When you do something repetitively and often, you can become complacent. Occasionally I am reminded that every one of my patient's is nervous about this exam. Many probably didn't sleep well the night before. To me it's just another exam. To them, well, it's their "boys" dammit.
The exam room is fairly clinical. The tech has the patient undress from the waist down and lie on the table. They wait there in the darkened room until I come in. "Good morning. I'm Dr. Chako," I always say. "Tell me what's going on." They reply with their history, and to be honest I'm only half listening to make sure that what their doctor wrote on the consult sheet basically matches with their actual complaint. Most of this conversation allows me to establish rapport prior to manhandling their junk.
Pleasantries completed, we begin the exam. I have them place one towel under their scrotum (to lift it up) and then I ask them to lay their penis on their belly and cover it with another towel (to keep it out of my way). Sorry for the graphic description, but you need that background to answer this question for me. If the penis falls out from under the towel, who should move it back out of the way?
