I’ve never heard of this being done. In fact, with most businesses having zero tolerance for any form of sexual harassment, I’d say doing this would create a huge liability.
I have seen photos of waterfalls and stuff.
I have never heard this and I think if I went into an exam room that had such posters, I would turn around and leave. Don’t get me wrong…I love a good looking, half naked man as much as the next woman but that is just not the place.
Generally, if there is anything, it’s a pretty poster of a forest or something. I had one nurse practitioner who had a picture of a kitten stuck in a tree, with the caption, “How did I get myself into this position?”
My OB/GYN doesn’t have such posters on the walls or ceilings, not even the peaceful nature scene. I relax there because my Dr. went to high school and college with my mom (and probably dated her), so it’s a weird friendship thing. He also delivered me and my sister.
Where on earth did you hear this? If anything (usually nothing) usually it’s rainforests with lots of birds and things, or mobiles or something like that.
You MUST tell us where you got this idea, though! It’s a riot.
The clinic on campus at my university had a Brad Pitt poster
on the ceiling over the exam table. A picture of him from
Legends of the Fall. I recall an open shirt and some chestage, but
Also there were cheery cotton-print oven mitts over the stirrups.
I was amused. It added a bit of levity to what is often stressful and scary -
it’s likely that a lot of girls hadn’t had gyn visits before going away to college.
I can’t imagine that anyone would actually become aroused during an exam!
Being a campus clinic whose clientele was exclusively students, the ambience
was probably a little different from the usual OB/GYN office.
I would think a university would be even less likely to risk such a thing. What about the lesbians? Women who’ve suffered date rape? Or worse? When I was going to school, I knew several girls who were very anti-male due to past abuse. Students are extremely vocal about stuff like this and it’d make the campus paper in a heartbeat.
Heck, I’m het and the idea offends me too. I don’t want any suggestion of sex accompanying what is an already extemely awkward and uncomfortable situation.
The OP sounds like a silly male fantasy. Would staring at a picture of a half-naked girl relax you while the doctor examines your testicles for lumps or checks your prostate?
