I do see the concerns of the original poster with respect to sitting bare-assed on chairs being sanitary.
I don't think getting embarrassed about
being exposed is something to worry about
. The medical staff gets plenty of that, even though they are human. It's par for the course, IMO.
When I had my biopsy, the male doctor did it, but he had two interns watch the procedure. The doctor asked my permission, and I gave it. I figure, if it helps someone learn, that's a good thing. And I've seen a lot of things more pornographic than putting lube and a condom on an ultrasound wand, so I didn't give that a second thought either.
My pre-surgery MRI was rectal, and quite a few people got an eyeful.
When the urologist gave me an in-office penile injection, he had a very attractive and young female urology intern watch the whole process of injection and testing of the firmness of the erection. He asked my permission as well. I was happy to do it
