When I had to see a Dr about my cock I was keen to see a male - I am male and gay so am used to having my cock handled by men, but not at all by women. In particular I thought that if I were to spring a woodie, a male would be more understanding. When I went to the clinic I was told it was a first come, first served basis so while I could ask for a male, this could mean waiting longer. I said that was OK. After a while a woman came and called me - despite being nervous I was able to say I'd rather wait. She was OK about this. However on subsequent visits, whether to this or another place, I have had a mixed response. Once I was told that the secretary didn't think I was allowed to make such a request - her tone was such that I thought I would be reported for sex discrimination - on another occasion a particularly aggressive female doctor called me, I said I would wait and she snapped at me - in front of a room full of people "since you don't want to see me", which was not of course true - I had merely asked to see a man. One time I did see a woman - on the basis that a Dr is a Dr - but she was rude, arrogant and thoroughly unpleasant. This merely strengthened my resolve. I am sure that if there were a clinic with male/female doctors and a female asked for a female, her request would be met without question. Equally if someone professed some religious "faith" that too that restricted their choice, efforts would be made to satisfy this but it seems that something as straightforward as a male asking to see a male - specifically to have his cock examined and not for a general complaint - is alone seen as bad. Has anyone else been in a similar situation in the UK, the USA or Canada?
