Out of curiosity regarding the pelvic exams.. How are prostate exams learned? Surely on anesthetized men as well?

Gromit Lauriello omg. They used their own bodies. To be a fly on the wall during that lesson.

As a former Catholic, listening to the LDS question segment was both shocking and relatable. My ideas on sex was in part shaped by my Catholic faith. I personally believe your personality and take on your beliefs shape your views on life.

Keith Betton I also wanted to comment on the second part too. As a patient of teaching hospital, I had students observe me after a surgery. I had a catheter dip attached to me and it was quite embarrassing, so I can imagine what those women must think. I understand the need for learning but consent is important.

Thankful I listened, conflicted over how "we" have become. I was adopted by immigrants, and how I am still considered foreign just because of my name. I hate how stupid people are and how they glory in voicing their pathetic opinion. Kinda like the Beckers. STFU ignorant rabble.
