Why is it presumed that men are happy to have the genitals exposed to one and all.
In America there are such things as colonoscopy shorts, for internal examination or for colonoscopy or sigmoidoscopy. These have a hole at the back. Here in the UK they want a patient naked except for a hospital gown, or for examination to simply have their trousers and pants round their knees.
To conduct an examination or colonoscopy/sigmoidoscopy the doctor or endoscopist needs access to the anus and not to the genitals. A pair of boxer shorts worn back to front or for men an athletic support (jockstrap) would protect their modesty and make them feel more comfortable.
As yet I've only been examined, I think I'll be refusing the next test.
