ARE DOCTORS PROMISCUOUS?
I had to take some time to ponder this question. Of course, we are talking more about male doctors here; female doctors hardly have time to be promiscuous (though there are few exceptions). Due to the nature of medical school, by the time a female doctor graduates, her biological clock has already started ticking and there is little time for philandeering.
Before I answer if doctors are promiscuous, let me give the reasons why they MAY BE promiscuous.
WHY DOCTORS MAY BE PROMISCUOUS.
1. THE STRESS OF MEDICAL SCHOOL:
Medical School puts a lot of stress on any person, and if this is not properly handled, a ready outlet of frustration could be in promiscuity.
2. THE DURATION OF MEDICAL SCHOOL:
like a bird set free from a cage (see angry birds), once doctors are released from medical school, they suddenly feel all the inhibitions loosening and are ready to explore what they missed.
3. PEOPLE OPEN UP TO DOCTORS:
Doctors are good listeners which may be interpreted as caring, and they've seen you when you are most vulnerable. A patient or a patient's relative can easily fall for a caring doctor.
4. OTHER FACULTIES HOLD MEDICAL STUDENTS/ DOCTORS IN HIGH ESTEEM:
A doctor/ medical student is quite respected by many peers, and dating one (in some cases) is seen as a choice pick.
5. MONEY TO BURN:
Well, a Doctor that is ready to splurge his hard earned money can easily get a bevy of admirers.
6. LATE NIGHTS:
Call Duty is a ready excuse for any overnight rendevouz.
So there you have it - but I'm not done yet, I have to give the other side of the argument-
WHY DOCTORS ARE NOT PROMISCUOUS.
1. THEY'VE SEEN IT ALL:
Beauty is only skin deep, and medicine is a profession that recognises this.
2. THEY'RE TOO BUSY:
Too busy making money, too busy caring for their patients, or too busy writing exams.
3. THEY ARE AWARE OF THE RISKS OF PROMISCUITY:
They see the consequences of STDs and the likes.
4. THEY'RE USUALLY NERDS:
Oh Oh, I didn't just say that did I?
5. THE DURATION OF MEDICAL SCHOOL:
They are usually more mature when they finish school, and besides, most of their peers would be married.
