I love the external exam and everything that it entails, it's just such an intimate and personal part of the pelvic exam. Part of what makes it so enjoyable is that it immediately follows the 'getting positioned in the stirrups' portion, which I also find very exciting. So the whole start to the pelvic is such an incredible rush of feelings, and I sort of see it as all one, from putting my feet up right through the external.
I love the exposure of the exam, being so open, on display to the doctor's view, the feelings of awkwardness and vulnerability when my feet are in the stirrups. Having to get positioned in the stirrups still creates some butterflies in my belly, that nervous excitement of having to do so and what is to follow. The thoughts later of having the doctor sit down and roll up between my legs, instructing me to scoot down more and let my legs fall open to the side, having to comply, initially opening my legs and showing myself, feeling the doctor's first gaze on my most intimate anatomy, and then laying there with my knees wide apart for the doctor, who is essentially a stranger, waiting to be visually inspected is incredibly arousing.
I very much enjoy the thoughts of being subjected to the close inspection, having that bright exam lamp aimed up between my splayed thighs, hearing the CLICK as it goes on, feeling the warmth of its brightness shining directly on me, knowing it's fully illuminating my vulva, my perineum and my anus - my crotch - and further exposing me to the doctor's visual inspection, making me feel totally on display. Oh the embarrassment of it, I think I'm blushing even now! 😃 And feeling the first touch of those gloved fingers on my inner thighs, while typically being told to relax my knees out further. Then the doctor is touching my genitalia, moving all over my vulva, clinically and deliberately, yet gently, but not in a romantic way at all. Such a different touch, a strange yet wonderful feeling.
I love the feel of the gloved fingers separating my labia, knowing I am being so intently looked at, all my pink folds being opened to the doctor's view. Feeling the fingers move from the top of my lips to the bottom, starting with pulling my hood back to visualize my clitoris and working down to my introitus, with a fingertip slipping in just past my entrance, palpating around my opening. But not stopping there, feeling the gloved fingers moving down over my perineum and then still further down as I feel them separate my cheeks as the doctor does a visual inspection of my anus, always making me blush even more, knowing my little pucker is clearly visible under the bright exam light and being stared at by my doctor. Then fingers are pulled away and I am laying there, very aware of my situation and what is next, then confirmed as I hear the clanking of the metal as the doctor prepares the speculum for insertion.
