I'll bet this isn't as much fun as it sounds.Private part to play for doctors

TASMANIAN men are being asked to flash their family jewels for $40 - all in the name of medicine, of course.
The University of Tasmania's School of Medicine is developing a program to help trainee doctors become better skilled in performing sensitive male examinations.
Under the MAN-CHECK program, male recruits will be trained as professional patients who will have genital and other physical examinations including prostate, hernia and urinary tract infections.
They will receive $40 an hour for allowing trainee doctors to examine them but prospective volunteers are warned they will have to undergo an actual consultation including a prostate examination.
They also must pass a stringent selection process.
