Dr Carla Pugh, the assistant professor of surgery at Northwestern University Medical School (da alma mater), makes it to the pages of the BBC in an intriguing article about unrealistic mannequins, unreliable models, and missing body parts, all of which she finds in local Chicago pr0n shops:
Worried by the quality and anatomical accuracy of mannequins available for her students to practise on, Dr Pugh decided to take matters into her own hands and provide her own.
“One model that was available for teaching the students had the rectum in the wrong place, in another the prostate was in the wrong position.
“The penises that were available were made of styrofoam and they were all the same.
“So I decided to get my own,” said the assistant professor of surgery at Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine, Chicago.
“I had to go into porn shops and ask for lots of penises, all sizes, erect and not erect, circumcised and non-circumcised. I was met with gales of laughter in the shops.”
Perhaps she should have consulted our pages: we’ve profiled quite a few realistic models of all kinds of body parts and organ systems.
