You should insist that the camera crew and sound recordists wear masks and that any crowds of onlookers keep a respectful distance. Oh yes, remember to ask for the examination to be held in an indoor auditorium in case of unseasonal snowfall.


If you're going to have a picture of an owl I suggest you print it on your underwear with the slogan "Give a hoot, be nice to my chute" printed underneath.


hey, just had a look on the net at some American sites and they mention ladies being examined in the dorsal position with feet in stirrups. I've never seen that myself but don't get worried if that happens (unless, of course, you can't bear that position because of your disability).


If they want to examine you, the normal position is you lying on your right side, with your right leg straight down and your left leg, knee bent, drawn up towards your abdomen.

If you have any problems with that, tell them up front.

Then they have a feel round with a rubber-gloved finger, sometimes palpating your abdomen with the other hand. It shouldn't be at all painful.


Proper buttiquette eh? Wear clean drawers! Seriously though, it's not that bad. You'll be fine. If you do print something, put "I'm watching you" on the back of your knickers.
