My son and ex husband always in their underwear and nothing else. My son does judo and while all of the women go into a dressing room to change, none of the men do. They strip down to their underwear and put their gis on for everyone to see and no one bats an eyelash. From older men to the little boys. The boys at competitions get dressed in the stands while the girls run to the restroom. I also think it has to do with society and how women should behave.

And that Laissez Faire attitude apparently (based on my own observations) applies to the exam room, as well. LOL.

I remember my mother (also RN) commenting that she'd seen more penises than a two dollar hooker, LOL....shocked me at first, but now that I live the life, well.....ain't nothin' going on there of much interest now! ;)

".....a two-dollar hooker." Funny. I have to remember that one.

From my PT perspective,  I have no problem wearing just underpants in an exam room with doctors or nurses of either gender... with 3 caveats. 

1. Underpants must be boxers. Prefer white but a low contrast plaid works. The fly can't be too loose or the end of my private situation could poke out inadvertently. 

2. Do not make me lower them or remove them. If you must force this on me, only the doctor can be in the room. MA - exit post haste.

3. If  #2 is forced on me, don't touch me or you're going to see my blood pressure rise to unhealthy levels.

Violation of any of these maxims and you have a really uneasy patient who isn't likely to cooperate. But hey, I'm just a victim of abuse in my childhood so give me some slack. 

With this said, I may not actually be nursing material after all. I cannot see myself putting someone like me through this kind of thing....

Excellent revelation!!  I'm so clever 😉 to come here to learn a little about your life as a nurse. My hat is off to you who can do it. Prolly, I need to re think my career swerve.

My husband walks around the house in his underwear. :facepalm: I wish he wouldn't.

But, in the hospital, I would have no problem with them just being in their underwear. It is certainly easier to get to their chest for an EKG. ;)

This is funny. I would be the opposite. Hubby in his skivvies? No problem. Patient languishing in his underwear? Not unless its necessary, thank you very much. I have had too many inappropriate advances from men in my time on this earth to give them that kind of opening.

It will very difficult if the doctor needs to check for a hernia or perform a prostate exam. There may also come a time when a nurse needs to insert a foley catheter. That will be up close and personal.

You will be seeing and touching genitals of both males and females in your nursing career. If that is a deal breaker, then you might want to choose a different career.
