A pap smear ? You think the average hetero male doctor gets turned on doing a pap smear on an attractive woman? I guess you've never seen that view. Between the gown, the coverings, the speculum and the light, I'm surprised these guys ever want to have sex again after seeing that!

Incidentally, I don't think I've had a male doctor require a female medical asst. in the room for decades. I work in the field, though not directly in patient care anymore. I don't think it's a law, as someone up-thread thought it might be, it might just be something the liability carrier recommends.

The link you give says right on the main page, big disclaimer, "we cannot guarantee the accuracy of the information"... who are the site developers? You realize that a fetish is pretty much defined by the fact that it's uncommon right? Are you clear on that?

I have seen that, I did get turned on and she was too. We had *** right after. I really don't think you understand the male brain.

It is because they are linking to news sites outside there website. There is nothing unusual about that. Did you even click on any of the links?

Given the number of link I have provided I feel it would be safe to assume that a woman is at least 50 to 100 times more likely to be assualted by a male doctor than a female doctor and possibly much more likely than that.

Personally It depends on the Dr. I have a Dr. phobia in general so whoever it is has to make me feel comfortable. I don't care about their gender because I don't think they care about my organs in a personal way.

I would think that it would ruin sex for a man to have their work be about looking and touching and examining and palpating.

I used to work in a clinic and I asked why men become gynecologists. I was told that it is because the specialty is high paying and relatively pleasant. They deal with a subject that usually has a good prognosis and they get to deliver babies and that is more fun and easier then some other specialties.

That is what I was told. I am not saying that is right, but it made sense.

The standard OB/GYN exam is pretty boring. Delivering babies can be easy or very challenging. It does pay more than family practice.

Oh, how I miss those guys from years ago. I'm so old..... (that's a C-D thread) that the family doctor delivered me. He had to drag me out with forceps. My mother worked for him and he was a friend. We went to Thanksgiving dinner at his house one year. He drove my mother to work when it snowed.

He didn't have a problem controlling himself.

But couldn't a "crazy" (or sane) female also make crazy (or real) allegations against a female ob/gyn? Do THEY usually have witnesses? Guess it's all in what the perceived odds are of such a thing happening.
That's not the way things work in a very small city or town. Everyone has head all about it before the lawyers become involved.

No, I don't think it's weird just because the doctor is a guy. I was super unhappy with a female gynecologist at the university health center during college. All of the other female obgyns I've been to have been kind of meh, not gentle, and didn't bother to try to establish rapport. Luckily I finally found one who is nice and I like (though I will never like the yearly exam), who happens to be a man. So basically, it really depends upon the individual doctor.

Uhh..Ladies, how can you be okay with a male gyno? With a woman she has had periods and stuff, so why would you not want a female that knows what periods are, as opposed to having to talk with a man about your periods who only know text-book stuff?

Because the idea that someone has to personally experience what you're experiencing in order to assist you with a problem is asinine. Right now, I'm having issues with my left shoulder dislocating. My orthopedic surgeon has never had a dislocated shoulder. Does that mean he is clueless about how to help me fix my shoulder dislocations or doesn't understand how painful they are just because he hasn't had them himself? Of course not. He's still an expert at repairing bones and joints.
