What made the disposable shorts "more revealing than boxer shorts?" What color were they and were they "one size fits all?"
I was completely surprised that I was told to change into them. Every yearly physical I had up to that point I never actually undressed, I just lifted my shirt or lowered my pants as needed.
I was told to undress completely by the nurse. The nurse didn't explicitly say to remove underwear but to me, "completely" means everything so I undressed completely nude and put the shorts on.
The issue I had with the shorts was that were itchy and loose around the waste. There wasn't much of a "crotch" so my junk was sort of flopped to one side and when I laid on my back for the abdominal exam they sort of slipped down lower than I expected.
The strangest part about the entire exam was how short it really was. In general, I'm shy and modest regarding nudity, but I'm probably more willing than most to submit to exams and procedures which may require undressing. So I was fine changing into the shorts especially since it felt like I was going to get a more thorough exam than I was used to. However, everything was more or less the same as my previous exams with the exception that there wasn't a shirt to lift for the chest and abdominal exam and there wasn't a belt and pants to mess with for the genital exam.
