I had this exact situation in a previous job. The male nurses expected us to step in and do all intimate procedures on their female patients. They were not happy when I insisted they they do all intimate procedures on our male patients.

I honestly think that if you are a professional your gender shouldn't matter unless a patient specifically requests a nurse of their own gender. I only made a point of enforcing this as I felt my male colleagues were taking advantage of us to cherry pick which tasks they felt like doing.
