Many people wrongly assume that men really don't
care about their modesty, but that is not true in many cases.
Many men would not be comfortable with strange women watching
them using urinals and they don’t feel differently about
female nurses seeing them naked. Many men in public restrooms
can see each other using urinals, but that doesn't mean they
are comfortable with women watching them. Many men are upset
about how the medical community assumes that modesty is not
that important to them. Some men who desire modesty in medical
settings are mocked. There are actually many men who value their
modesty highly. Some are afraid to speak up. Many hospitals
don't have enough male nurses or technicians available to do
intimate procedures such as urinary catheterizations and scrotal
ultrasound on men. It is hard for men to get their wishes respected
for an all male surgical team for intimate male surgeries such
as vasectomy, prostatectomy, hernia repair, etc. Women are more
likely to get their wishes for an all female surgical team for
OB/GYN because there are hardly any male nurses who work in
There are a number of men who never want to expose their private
parts to other women even in medical settings. Some men desire
for their future wife or wife to be the only woman to see and
touch his private parts and they want to protect their intimacy
with their future wife or wife. There are some wives who never
want their husbands to have female nurses present for intimate
procedures. Those wives are not crazy. They are simply uncomfortable
with other women seeing private parts of their husbands. Male
modesty is not a weakness at all. It is very admirable
for men to be modest. A lot of men prefer that their wives give
them bath if they are sick and in the hospital.
It is strange how many men get their wishes respected in locker
rooms that no women are present, but then their wishes are disregarded
in medical settings.
Men do have one advantage over women. They can take their shirt
off with no problem. In many cardiology procedures, they don't
have to worry about exposing their chest like women have to.
However, some men with gynecomastia are embarrassed to be topless.

Medical Patient Modesty desires to help medical
professionals and hospitals to be more sensitive to male patient
modesty and to hire more male nurses. Many medical professionals
don't think it is as important for men to have the modesty they
desire as women.
Men who desire modesty or same gender doctors/nurses
in medical settings should speak up for their wishes no matter
how hard it is. Wives should also be bold and do whatever they
can do to ensure that their husbands' wishes for modesty are
