[ - ] Question for any doctors or nurses on UB. What is your reaction when a male patient becomes aroused during an exam or treatment? Is it ever awkward? 9 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

The only time this has ever happened to me is inserting catheters in teenage boys, because you have to cleanse the head of the penis with betadine so you're basically holding his penis in one hand and wiping betadine on the head with your other hand, takes about 10 seconds, but occasionally a teenage boy will get an erection. I would say nothing, and continue with what I was doing, and insert the catheter, and then say "you're all done!" and leave the room. I mean, what was I going to say exactly? It's a little awkward but nothing major- it's not like they can help it. [ Reply | More ]

Are you a troll? Of course not, I wasn't providing these boys with hand jobs, I was inserting a plastic tube into their penises. The only reason they became physically aroused is because of the physical contact with their penis, it was a reflex. Did you think I lingered or something?? [ Reply | More ]

It's not that common. I agree with catheter poster above, it's happened to me with catheter care before as well, but really only for very young men who can't control it. I mean it's not like these hospital ridden patients are horny and looking for a good time- they're in the hospital, they feel like shit [ Reply | More ]

There's a simple reason that people are brutally honest and snarky on this board - it's anonymous and there are no user names. On boards with user names people don't want to acquire a negative reputation - even if it's only under their fake board name. In real life, people aren't brutually honest because they're afraid that they would lose a lot of friends if they were. [ Reply | More ]

I wish I would have taken more seriously what would happen in another ten years. He was a professional athlete when we married; obviously like many he is retired now. Which means I am married to a former professional athlete who did save (so we are fine with millions, not tens of millions though), but the current income is just like anyone else. So we have to be careful, the money can't just go anywhere. So we are fine - but this is it. Also it's more awkward to be several years older when I am in my late 40s and he is in his early 40s. I have a lot of insecurity knowing I can't have any more kids like a younger wife could. I work out now and keep myself up a lot more from a place of fear than confidence sometimes ... but I'm grateful for what I have. [ Reply | More ]

practicality. It is hard to be a single parent. I would not wish it on anyone, frankly. I don't judge but it is definitely not something I ever aspired to be. The working situation is very unfriendly here to new parents. Many times, it is also more practical and desirable to stay home. This is especially true in that we rush our young mothers back to work with only a 12 week paid leave. Europe is much more flexible the first year and with other benefits for parents, including vacation time. Kind of sucks if you only get 2 weeks. Don't know about the hobby situation as I have many friends who are interested in the computer and guitar. Interestingly, I never was interested in a European man as they did not seem to be as gallant as American men. Of course, this is just me and I am answering your question from my point of view. I am sure many would not agree with me. [ Reply | More ]

According to a U.S. Department of State report, Antisemitism in Brazil remains rare.[10] The results of a global survey on anti-Semitic sentiments, released by the Anti-Defamation League, ranks Brazil among the least anti-Semitic countries in world. According to this global survey conducted between July 2013 and February 2014, Brazil has the lowest “Anti-Semitic Index” (16%) in Latin America and the third lowest in all Americas, only behind Canada (14%) and the United States (9%).[12] [13] [ Reply | More ]

I certainly do not know the stats, but my friends moved from Brazil because they are Jewish, were being harassed at work, and they were scared. [ Reply | More ]

Just read UB to see how Jews are hated here in NYC and the USA. Yes, we are successful, but there is subtle prejudice all over the place in jobs, country clubs, real estate. Realtors steer Jews to certain towns and away from others. [ Reply | More ]

No more so than other groups. I mean, WASPS are steered away from towns that are not filled w wasps. Stop having a persecution complex [ Reply | More ]

I've seen that movie. It was so hard to imagine that Jews were looked down upon so recently. Things have changed so much in the past few decades. [ Reply | More ]

Yes, you are right. Even in 1950 things probably wouldn't have played out the way they did in the movie. I think the movie more accurately portrays what would have happened to jews at Andover in 1920 or 1930, not in 1950. [ Reply | More ]

Non- Jewish women may want to marry Jewish men because they are good providers and mensches. However, there children will not grow up to be "Jewish" in the same way as their DH. It is the Jewish mother who set the tone in the Jewish home. She teaches traditions to her children, cooks the recipes handed down for generations, understands yiddishkeit and has haimish qualities instilled in her home. She educates her children in the historic traditions of the Jewish people. She fits into the Jewish community. Shiksa and Asian brides can never do this. [ Reply | More ]

exactly. sons of gentile women and jewish men do not have the same qualities of the typical jewish men stereotype (for better or worse). and the boys born to asian women and jewish men will suffer terribly from the anti-asian man bias that so many women seem to hold. [ Reply | More ]

I think the shrill screeching and squaealing and wailing of single Jewish women, the hate and vitrol towards shiksas that steal their men, is limited to certain cities. I sense it in some places in America and not in others [ Reply | More ]
