    Am I the only guy who shaves before a physical exam? I shave almost everything but my bush (which I trim).

    I am self-conscious about body hair, especially when someone sees me up close -- like with a massage or physical exam. I do the porno shave: my asshole (which isn't easy), my chest, belly, balls, taint, and a little bit that's on the small of my back. I don't shave my legs or arms. It takes over an hour to do all this, and a few days later I'm itchy as hell (although I usually keep my balls, belly, and chest shaved.)

    Physical exam? What's that? Haven't been to a doctor in over 20 years.

    Man I would LOVE to help you prepare for that exam: have given several trims + shaves, and the guy always looks better, and is quite grateful!

    We don't really do the whole physical thing in england. I've never had one anyway so I havn't really had any reason to prepare for one. :smile:

    Bend over

    *SNAP* the sound of a rubber glove

    and the doctor goes about a thorough anal probing :)

    Doctors have seen next to everything. From that mole that has wierd black hair growing on it, to lovely people with 3 nipples.

    I just take a shower like I do everyday nothing special.

    For a physical exam, I take a good shower first. If I shave, I only shave my face. I sure would not shave off pubes or body hair.

    If you do that much shaving before a physical exam, the doctor may suspect that you have a variant of the compulsive aspects of Trichotillomania. Actually, it sounds like you could exhibit some symptoms, if you are truly that self-conscious about body hair...:biggrin1:

    Personally, that much shaving would just be too much work for me!

    For a physical, I shower (making sure everything is clean), shave face and head, and I'm ready...

    It's not a beauty contest....! :rolleyes:

    Oh man... As I already stated, I am self-conscious about having body hair, especially where it doesn't belong. I shave before I go to the beach, the doctor's office, a spa, or any other situation where somebody's going to be looking at my body up close.

    I think that it got started when I heard women talking about guys with hairy backs and nuckles -- neither of which I have. Girls seem to be sensitive about body hair on a guy. I always make sure that I'm well-groomed before I go to a bar.

    Since it's been mantioned, I do have a hot doctor.

    It is too much work. I don't think that I have trichowhatever, though. I mean, when I'm alone I don't care if I'm hairy or not. In fact, when I get a bad flu, I'll lay in bed for weeks without shaving. It's not the body hair that bothers me, it's people's perceptions. I feel like a slob when I'm not fully groomed.

    I shouldn't say this, but I even trim my forearms.

    That's really enough, but it can also be according to the doctor (or dentist,in my case today, when I was just getting ready to go and they called, having made the appointment wrongly), because some of them try to annoy you and make you do more tests or procedures that you may not need if you don't go in with an air of full authority. Lady dental hygienists (since this is on my mind right now) are not very interested in big dick, and so I have to force myself to put on slightly dressy clothes and groom way too neatly for my taste--just to keep her shut up! I hate when she calls me 'darling' while she's drilling me like a street.

    I think it's important to really exude self-confidence, because doctors and dentists are always ready to send you to a specialist for something you may not need, so you have to be able to make up your mind fast. They mean well, but since they don't think of much of anything but their specialization, they think your whole life should revolve around what THEY are telling you to do. My bottom teeth were thought to be about to fall out in 2002, according to them I already needed a bridge for four front bottom teeth; but I knew I didn't, and then they got startled at how everything got better just because I maintained visits (I hate taking the time for this shit.) My mouth is now in better shape than ever, but if I'd listened to them, I would no longer have 4 of my fucking teeth!

    Aw, rec, you mistook my good humor for a castigation! I was just joking about the compulsion thing.

    Honestly, I'll relate a tangential story here. While I was still in the military, I had an emergency appendectomy performed on me. Looking back, and having heard some other anecdotal information from other people who had major surgeries during that same time frame, I think I had a residual reaction to the anesthesia. For almost a year, I had absolutely zero hunger reflex. (Yeah, some people think that sounds cool, but it's not... trust me!) I dropped about 60 pounds in about 8 weeks. My CO ordered me to go to the battalion aid station, the doctor examined me, and referred me to a psychiatrist, since he could find nothing wrong. Now, for the interesting part of the story:

    Prior to actually having my first and only session, I had to fill out an exhaustive "profile questionnaire", about 400 questions. As anyone might expect, sometimes the same question was presented 2 or three times, but phrased a little differently ("Do you sometimes think someone is out to get you" and on the next page, "Is someone out to get you"). What shocked me was how many "bald", "no hair", "shaving", "plucking", and related questions were on it. I think I counted about 60 questions on those subjects. It was a major focus in that survey.

    I can't help but think that it goes through a doctor's mind, even if he doesn't comment on it. And I know that you just simply prefer the smoothness.

    Oh, and the diagnosis of the psychiatrist? Based on my one answer to one question, it was my drinking problem.

    Dr. Setmier: "When did you last have an alcoholic beverage?"
    Me: "uh, let's see... about 2 weeks ago, I had a margarita when Libby, Mark, Denise, and I went to dinner at Carlos Murphy's in Fallbrook. Before that, I think it was about a month ago when I had a beer at the bowling alley."
    Dr. Setmier: "That confirms it. You're an alcoholic, and that's causing all your problems."

    I later learned that she had that same diagnosis for many of her patients, even ones who didn't drink.

    Yes. I misunderstood. I thought that you were pissed off at me, to be honest.

    That's a very interesting story. I wonder what it would be like to have no appetite for a year.

    You lush.

    Don't worry about all this things.
    As a GP, I don't mind if a guy is shaved or not.
    I just have to examine him, and thats all !


    So don't bother with that, be natural ;)

    As a GP, do other thoughts not go through your mind, if you have a patient who shaves from the neck down?:biggrin1:

    You DO know me better than that, I know you do. You need to meet me in person, though. Just ask the currently-banned-snoozan-of-whom-we-do-not-speak. She will tell you that after spending some time around me, you get a better appreciation for my humor and my passion.
