Well, having your temp taken rectally can be and can't be. Depends on the situation.
It wasn't all that long ago 2 years maybe on the outside, I was sitting up on the exam table when the doctor came in with the rectal thermometer in his hand. It was the glass one. The probe ones he has on his wall all have blue tips on them.
He started s haking it down in front of me as I wasthed. Then the games began. He told me I had two choices, I could either roll over on my belly, or I could lie over the end of the exam table. I sat there giving him my stairdown. He took a few steps towards me still shaking down that glass rod. He had his doctors hat on, and his stern face locked in place. I knew I wasn't getting out of this one so I turned over on my belly and lowered my pants and panties, but just far enough for him to get at what he needed.
So there I laid on his exam table, bottom all exaposed, nervous as hell, cheeks clinched tight I'm sure. He told me to just relax. Well I was doin the best I could in the situation I was in lol
Long story short my pants were down far enough to get at what he needed to get at so in went the cold glass rod deep in to my upturned fanny.
So I layed on the table like a good girl until he told me he was going to take it out. So he slid the thermometer out of me, cleaned it up and put it back in it's case. I stated to get up and get my pants pulled back up when the good doctor stopped me, told me to lay back wont, keep my hants where they are, and that he wasnt done with me yet.....and trust me, he wasnt'
In this case is wasn't at all hot, as a matter of fact, I was pretty mad at him for doing it that way to be honest with yout. Now, 2 years later after the fact, it's totally the hottest real life real med thing that has ever happened to this shy little nurse who grew up in Amishville
