    He has to remember that the patients you are dealing with are ill, injured, etc. Quite honestly it is refreshing to go home and see a nice healthy looking body on your significant other after a day of wrinkled, edema-filled, or just plain nasty bodies. He might enjoy hearing that.

    It's amazing how many males do find some of our work sexual...I remember going into a room to pull out a foley on a GSW patient (or something like that...not a person that I would ever want to have relations with)...anyway, I lifted up the sheet, and boom there it was standing tall for me. Once I took the foley out he said thank you...thank you for what!!?? taking the foley out or me touching him??

    If you married in true love, it shouldn't matter anyway!

    The "seen one seen them all" is referred to all that you have to see at work.....male or female.

    Hopefully, we are all mature enough to not even have to make ourselves think it's just work, not a sexual playground.

    I know I look at my husband different than anyone. I've seen smaller; I've seen bigger, I've seen thinner, etc.....but my husband is who I go home to at night. He is my best friend, the father of my children, and the one I will spend the rest of my life matter what I see at work, sickly soft, or viagra hard. :chuckle

    Um, this is a really old thread. The OP is long gone, I think.

    Quote from cindyln
    It's the same for male ob/gyn's. It's just a part of the body,nothing sexual about it and you get pretty tired of looking at it all day also.
    It gets to be no different than looking at someone's nose. We all have one.

    I had a wife (married 62 years) want to step out of the room while I was doing a straight cath on her husband. I said "why? have you not seen it before? It won't bother me", she got so tickled I thought she was going to pee in her pants. She stayed, it broke the ice and we all had a good laugh.
