I Don’t Think I Want A Hot Gynecologist

136801619There’s a gynecologist in Chile that women are lining up to see – because he’s a hottie. No, thanks. I don’t want my gynecologist to be hot. I prefer the qualities of old and frumpy in my male gynecologists. Really, I prefer women – but if I have to have a man look up my vagina in a medical way, I prefer old and frumpy.

The Google translate version of the story I read about this says women have been “rioting” to get into this guy’s care. I may take that with a grain of salt. The translated version of this story is hilarious, by the way. Actually my favorite part is the caption under his picture that says, “It looks like a Hollywood star, but gynecologist.”

Manuel Rico is, obviously, a handsome young man, but not only that: in 2010 he was elected King of Beauty of Spain. He arrived in September to the University of Concepción (UdeC) and the Region of Conception Hospital in the southern country.

King of Beauty of Spain. Enough said. No wonder women are “rioting” to get under his care.

I’ve never had the experience of walking into a gynecologist’s office and having the King of Beauty staring at me. I don’t think I want the King of Beauty talking me through my gynecological woes – but maybe I’m just weird. Having never had this experience, I’m actually not sure if it would make me uncomfortable at all. I’m just imagining walking into a doctor’s office and seeing George Clooney - and I’m not sure I would be down with that.

Have any of you ever had some super hot gynecologist? Was it weird? Did you even notice at all or am I totally shallow and immature? Do tell.

    The only person I’ve had look up my vagina for medical reasons is my adorable, female, Sri Lankan family doctor. Even then I’m not super ok with it, I feel like my personal bubble is being invaded (sure I’ll take my shirt off at parties, I really don’t care about people seeing me topless most of the time, but not really cool with showing off my vagina). But yeah, I don’t know how down I’d be with a hottie checking out my bits.

    Oh god no. No. Nooo. Nooooo. Gynecology appointments are the least sexy, most awkward experiences. I don’t need a hot guy there to witness it, much less be primarily involved.

      Also I just can’t do male gynecologists that idea terrifies me so much

    Yea call me shallow and immature too. The only hot guy I want staring at my lady parts is my husband. In fact, the only guy I want staring at my lady parts in my husband. There is nothing wrong with a male gyno, I just don’t think I could deal with one.

    Eh, I don’t care so much. I mean, my current primary care physician/gynecologist is also maybe 2-3 years older than me (I’m 24), so he’s relatively attractive. Not the King of Beauty attractive, but attractive nonetheless. I guess I don’t care because really, how will his attractiveness affect me? Even if my doctor was female, her attractiveness isn’t going to affect me.

    I also prefer having a male gynecologist partially because it’s easier to get an appointment with them. I’ve had a male and a female gynecologist, and honestly, he’s friendlier than she was about the whole process. It’s awkward experience overall, but he was better at handling it than she was.

    I don’t really care what my doctor looks like, I don’t feel uncomfortable with someone who is attractive. I wouldn’t pick my doctor because he was eye candy, though. I do prefer males to females, I’ve just had a lot of negative experiences with female gynos.

    • Ptownsteveschick

      I totally prefer male gyns and pediatricians for my daughter. Also veterinarians. I don’t know why but I just do. At least I am not the only one!

    • NicknamesAreDull

      My vet has to be a male, not because of me.. because of the Edgar Allan Pug.

      When he was a little bitty puppy, many moons ago, I took him to my favorite vet. He promptly peed on her. I assumed it was a puppy thing and it would stop once he was housebroken. So, I corrected the behavior and worked with him- like any good owner would do.

      I was wrong.

      He pees on female vets. And he always has this big, puggy smile on his face when he does. No amount of correcting will stop him. After the 3rd lady vet (we move, a lot), I’ve started to request male vets and I warn the receptionist that Edgar has a weird quirk.

    • blh

      Lol Edgar Allan pug…..I love it.

  • CrazyFor Kate

    Eh, if you’re going to put up with all that might as well have something nice to look at.

  • ElleJai

    I’d prefer someone with a bedside manner, old and frumpy is fine, but I’m not going to turn them down if they’re not. I still need medical care.

  • blh

    I don’t understand why anyons would want a hot gyno. There’s nothing attractive about having your vag cranked open and your junk scraped. Its not like hes gonna be checking you out. I’d never want a male gyno anyway.

  • Rachel Sea

    I haven’t had a hot gynecologist, but one of my ENTs was so hot it was distracting. She looked like a high class stripper dressed as a doctor – short skirt and all.

  • d.y

    When I was referred to my gyno a few years back, I pictured an old dude who smelled like autoclave and werther’s originals. But in walked this beautiful hunk of a man with gorgeous eyes and even better looking hair. And he is only a few years older than me, so it wasn’t like Doogie was poking around down there. My husband accompanied me to every prenatal appointment and my doctor was amazing at explaining things to him and including him in the process. (He even commented on how good looking the doctor was.) My doctor is very informative and certified in all the latest procedures, medications, etc. I love him for that. The fact that he is handsome and flirty makes having a speculum shoved up there a rather enjoyable experience.

    I’ve been told some female patients have asked the nurses if my husband is single, some have even outright hit on him. Hello, he’s wearing a wedding band! It’s just weird to me. From the doctors perspective he doesn’t care what you look like. If he’s looking at you in a sexual way he’s not focused on doing his job, which is to get/keep you healthy. So why some women are into hot doctors baffles me. If he’s “paying attention” to you he’s not doing his job.

  • Ptownsteveschick

    I have a male gyno, I guess he is mildly attractive but I have never thought of it that way. My thinking in having a male doctor is that he must really care a lot about women to take that job, and with all the disgusting looking(and smelling!) problems that can happen down in that region, men don’t get into the profession to be pervs. And he does some of the quickest and most gentle pap smears I have ever had. My old female gyno was always too rough and pinchy. I am totally team male gyno, it doesn’t really matter what they look like.Also, after having a baby, I am totally not modest or shy and will let anyone with medical training take a gander at my bits, so my opinion may be skewed.

    Isn’t this an episode of Friends? Where Rachel has a hot gyno and hilarious hijinks ensue?

    My Ob is a male, some of his coworker nurses were in my birthing class and they call him Dr. mcDreamy, but he’s too old for me. HOWEVER, I was sent to the hospital at 27 weeks in preterm labor and the attending was ridiculously hot. And because it was kinda hectic, the nurses couldn’t get the bed to shift into an exam table, so they asked the dr to do it and I’m sitting right there with his hands inches from my uncovered nether regions trying not to make eye contact while he wrestles with the bed. I know I should have been focused on what was happening with my babies, but I’ll be honest, part of me was so embarrassed that I hadn’t shaved in godknowshowlong. Soooooo uncomfortable! The nurse were really pretty too, even my husband joked that they must ask for headshots to be submitted with their applications.

    This guy…I saw this story on a site yesterday and all I could think was, damn, I’m pretty sure this is the start of some porno I have watched.

    Not sure I would want him diagnosing a yeast infection while I’m fantasizing about him naked. Also, since specialist visits cost $50 a pop, it could also get expensive.

  • Ddaisy

    Once, I had to go to the ER in the middle of the night to get a stuck tampon removed. After a painful 7-hour wait, the doctor on duty was none other than my sisters’ best friend’s dad. Awwwwwkward.

  • Imalia

    Maybe it’s just me, but if there’s a hot doctor of any kind, I don’t want to be his patient, because then there are rules about fraternization :-p

  • Surly Canuck

    Years ago I had a non-cancerous lump removed from my breast. While the nurses were hosing my top half down in iodine, the anesthesiologist intern came in. He was very attractive, and as he joked with me, I started to blush. Unfortunately, it wasn’t a cute pink glow. No, I developed red splotches that look like hives, and they started at my nose and headed down to my navel. All concerned he asked me if I was having an allergic reaction. Mortified, I mumbled that I was just blushing. The spry old nurse rolled her eyes and said “Just do your thing.” I could not be conked out fast enough.

  • LiteBrite

    All of my docs are females. I don’t have anything against male docs; it just worked out that way. Even the veterinarian for my pets is female.

    I once had a male OB/GYN. I was in my 20s, and he was older (40s or 50s). He was attractive (from a mid-20-year-old perspective), but I wouldn’t classify him as a hottie at the time. Good doctor though.

    IMHO, being strapped in stirrups with a speculum up your hooha sucks no matter if the doctor is hot or not. So I wouldn’t care either way.

    My best friend from high school stayed in our hometown and when she had her first son the doctor asked in a new intern could come in to assist with the delivery. she said sure until he came in. It was a guy we both had crushed on in high school. He was a couple of grades above us and had just started his internship when she delivered. the second he stepped in the room she started screaming for him to get out.

    there was no way she wanted her high school crush seeing her vagina or seeing her poop when she delivered.
