I was always without socks during my physicals at school. We had to have one each year in PE, and we would devide up into boys and girls and take off our shoes, socks, pants, and shirt. The doctor would call us in one by one and examine us in a curtained area. He'd listen to our heart, take bp, feel nodes. Then he'd have us lie down where he would listen to and touch all over our bellies. He'd proceed to slide his hand down our undies and feel our nodes and pulses. Next, hed feel the pulses in our feet and feel our soles. Finally, he'd feel my penis and testicles with a gentle touch, then we could get dressed. Those were good days.
