It’s a medical device

Which doesn’t make its operation any less risible:

[T]he thing with the BBs-taped-to-your-nipples-as-an-orienting-device will never not be weird and funny to me. Not every place does it but the place I go does. It’s also weird and awkward trying to make small talk with a woman you either have never seen before, or don’t know well AT ALL (I think it was the same tech as last year) while she’s moving your breasts around and getting them in the right orientation for the machine).

One of the few examples of unalloyed Male Privilege in this universe is not having to deal with this. (There’s that whole prostate thing, but it’s over with in a hurry, though I can tell you that it doesn’t feel like a hurry.)

    Based on the descriptions gents I know have given me about that….other…procedure, I’m happy to go and get my “girls” squished every year. (I know some women find it painful; I do not. It’s just….weird. Not bad weird, just weird.)

    The best thing about it is that it’s fairly low-tech.

    IDK, I almost find the “high touch” medical stuff WORSE. (I am not a big fan of being touched.)
