Oh dear, the Prime Minister's consort has really done it now. Is he to be our Prince Phillip? Suggesting that doctor shopping for a prostate exam and choosing an Asian female doctor with small hands was the sort of thing you say in privacy, not at a public forum.
But the publicity about his self admitted faux pas probably has more men thinking about having an exam than any advertising budget could have achieved.
And, apparently, it is not girth of the finger that men need to worry about. The exam can not be done properly by someone with very short fingers. For the non penetrated, it is not the penetration you have have to worry about. It is what happens once you are.
Well, getting a needle jab can be unpleasant too, as can being cut open for prostate surgery. Caught early, you may not have to be.
