Now, I want to say that I had many experiences of group exams when I was young,first in schools we had a routine annual examination in the nurse's office of the school, in middle and high schools which were not co-ed at that time, and we had always to undress until briefs in a large group of boys, half of the class, so about fifty boys, we stayed in a locker room supervised by a male monitor or the male PE teacher and after we were examined first by one or two female nurse and then by the doctor who was most of the time a woman also, the door of the exam room stayed open permanently and the PE teacher was at the entrance of the room so that he could see most part of the examination at least with the nurse, we entered sometimes one by one and sometimes by group of four in the exam room in front of the nurse if she was hurry, in that last case, one student was in a small space for peeing while an other was weigh-in and sometimes an other nurse was checking the eyes, it was not exactly the same in middle schools and high schools and each year.
Of course, there was also annual exams in elementary schools but they were not performed inside the school but in a medical center with our teacher to supervise us, always with the door opened; curiously the doctor was rather a male one pretty old but assisted always by one or two nurses on the opposite of the high school where it was a woman doctor.
of course, during the exam, in elementary school, the nurse pulled down our brief and in high school, we were rather instructed to do it ourself but it was depending on the doctor, some were instructing to not only pull down the brief but to remove it completely because they wanted also to check more our spine and posture and we had to walk until the wall naked and then to come back.
Two times, one at the end of elementary school and the other at the end of middle school, we had a special examination devoted to a check of spine and curvature of the back, it was performed in the gym, so all the class was instructed to undress until briefs and then we came one by one in front of a male doctor and a female nurse in presence of two male PE teachers and a monitor because we were numberous, so it needed more persons to supervise us and keep us quiet, we were instructed to turn around, to pull down our brief until knees and to stay like that for a while, then to bend over and touch our feet, then to walk for some steps after removing our brief, all in plain view of other students and adults who were here.
But it was worst for draft process before military service, I had three physicals on three following years in a pre-induction center because I was two times posponed, we were always a large group of about 30 conscripts and we were ordered to strip completely and then to walk in line in corridors to go from a medical station to an other station until the last exam in a large room where we were all together gathered for the intimate exams by a military doctor assisted by male nurses and always supervised by sergeants, we had no privacy at all, no gowns, no individual exams, no screens, all was performed in the nude in group, with each time a genitals exams, a palpation of testicles, a check hernia,a retractation of foreskin,a visual rectal inspection while bending over and spreading our cheecks, and worst a digital rectal exam while on all fours on an exam table and a long time for the fingers deeply inserted in the rectum.
But no female presence.
The first year, I had also a physical in front of the draft board commission because this process was not already over, so since I was posponed by the chief doctors of the pre-induction center, I had an other exam like in the past with a group of 30 young men of 18 age like me, all lining up to wait for our turn to be examined and undressed in briefs (a few years before in the past, it was naked since the entrance in the room), then we came in front of a dozen of members of the commission who were mostly officers and civil persons and of course two doctors, a military one and a civil one, but no women, they questioned us and then the doctors began the examination, and very soon, we had to remove our brief and to stay naked front and back, to bend over and so on, even the weigh-in was performed in the nude, it lasted a time which seemed an eternity until we were instructed to put again our brief and to leave.
I have not related other group exams as those for summer camps when we were still kids or pre-teens which were some times enough degrading because the doctors had to examin a great number of boys so they were very hurry and not at all concerned by the modesty of the boys, and in that case there was often not only a female nurse but also one or two female clerks present for all the time of the exam or occasionnally coming in the exam room or the locker room. For kids and less often for pre-teens, parents could be there if they wanted to be present or if their presence was required to have some informations about the health of the boy (it was nearly always the mother),while the parents were never present in schools exams.
And of course, there was also exams in group for those who were practicing sport outside of the school or were in a team with meetings? I have heard that it was a bit like in the army, no privacy and the boys semi-naked or complelely naked in front of each other in a gym most of the time with many coaches present.
A last comment :
I have read the post of "Mr-doo-wop" when he relates his physicals for draft, he explains that they were in a group even for the urine sample test and supervised by a female nurse or tech sitting at the desk next to the urinal.
for me it was not surprising because even if it was not by a female nurse, we were always supervised during peeing in a urinal with a cup on one hand to fill it with some urine, there was a male nuse on the side of the wall against which were several urinals and there was a sergeant behind us with a plain view on our bare ass and who yelled after those who needed too much time to pee, it was a lot embarrassing. As "nastybutler"said, they wanted to check that we were not asking to an other guy to pee in our cup, but it was not to check that we were not concealing a container of someone else pee because we could not do that as we were completely naked also for that test of urine.
I was suprised by the post of "Whiff 2 about his physicals for ROTC when he was in collège because it seems to have been nearly most degrading than the physicals for draftees, they were naked all the time in the gym and examined all in plain view of others with a very great number of 100 guys?
and I have a question : which persons were performing the examination in the different stations?, female nurses or female doctors or only men?
were others persons as female clerks present?or male or female administrative of the collège or coaches?
