An intimate examination is a physical examination for medical purposes that includes examination of the breasts, genitalia, or rectum of a patient. Such examinations can cause patients stress or embarrassment. Hospitals therefore employ strict policies relating to the provision of consent by the patient, the presence of chaperones at the examination, and the absence of other parties.
Intimate examinations are eroticized by some people as part of medical fetishism, and as such are a common service offered by professional dominants.
