I found some posts above where boys reports about embarrassed experiences during the physical exam. At most of the cases female medical or school personal violate privacy of male patient or innocent school boys. That tradition retained in most of ex-totalitarian societies in Eastern Europe. Some state officials, including the teachers usurp rights, unusual for their occupation and competence. A case in point is the presence of a class-teacher on the regular physical exams we used to have at school from young child until come of age. According to school-policy a class teacher was always present in exam room during the exam, independent of age and sex of the students. The examination accomplish in the school doctors consulting room, separate for girls and boys. I have embarrassed memories of my last physical at age of 14. I went in consulting room by my school teacher an exacting lady about 40. On doctors orders I striped to undies. Then the doctor, also female done the exam. First she checks weight, height and blood pressure. After that she checked teeth, tongue and larynx. During exam I wear only underpants. My class-teacher stay right next to me witnesses at firsthand the procedure and masterminds me assisting the doctor. Become aware of implicit consent of the doctor, she stays immediately to her even during the most embarrassed part of the exam check of my physical development and genitalia. For that I was insist to lower my briefs to my knees. Next following check of the testicles and finally she pulled the prepuce back to see the glans. It was more embarrassing because I had reach puberty and start raises some pubic hair. In despite of obvious discomfort and humiliation to be exposed in front of a woman, who isnt even medical personal, nobody of my classmate protest because all this is part of a strong confirmed system.
