Doctor confirms being a firefighter can be good for your sex life. Scroll down for some sexpert advice.

I realize this is not the usual type of story. I apologize ahead of time to those who think I may have once again lowered the bar. If  you read my Quick Takes this morning you will realize what is really going on is that I am just trying to be more like my favorite blogger Firegeezer Bill Schumm (who never met a firefighter/sex story he didn’t like).  

But unlike Bill, it is the science I am interested in. This stuff is coming from a real doctor. She’s the woman to the left. Dr. Yvonne K. Fulbright is the Fox Sexpert (as in Fox News). Her column today begins this way:

Seems like “playing doctor” never gets old. Neither does role-playing the firefighter who saves your life, the nurse who tends to a soldier’s wounds, and the police officer who rescues the “kidnapping” victim.

The good doctor goes on to write about how the “save me” theme is a turn-on. She even cites personal experience:

I once had a partner who was not only a pilot, but a former paramedic, firefighter and soon-to-be doctor. Talk about having your fantasies rolled into one! Needless to say, I was quite the envy of my friends on this one. People know the potential such job titles – real or feigned — hold for better sex.

Click her for the rest of her column (yes, there is more).

Remember, unlike that Firegeezer guy, I am only passing this on in the name of medical research. So, try and keep the comments somewhat clean.

    And here I thought we only put fires out, not started them.

    As always never believe what dispatch told you. I suppose that proper scene size up helps, as does a good walk around to see what you are dealing with. Often times there have been additions and alterations that are designed to enhance the size of the home or to hide imperfections in the design work.

    Engine guys are used to humping some heavy lines, and although the reach of a 2 1/2″ line can’t be argued with, most of us still deploy the smaller diameter 1 3/4″ because it is easier to handle.

    I always try to make sure that I carry some sort of tool with me, and I am a big believer of sounding the floor, you don’t want to fall into an obscured hole.

    Basement fires can be smokey and difficult to battle, but if they are dealt with while still being observant of conditions on the other floors, the can be safely dealt with.

    I guess in this situation, a rekindle is a good thing.

    And when in doubt, always ask for extra manpower early.

    Boy you are quick.

    Thank you for playing “How many euphemisms and double entendres can you fit into a single comment?”. It is clear we have a winner from Texas.

    And so far no one has asked if the doctor make house calls. How refreshing.

    This is why I hate being the second due truck: forcing entry to side Charlie.

  • Fire Critic

    oh the possibilities are still endless even though sides Alpha and Charlie have been…never mind… Very funny though guys!!!

  • Texas Gordo


    I must admit to wondering how many posts wouldn’t make it through the filter tonight, and I gave myself a 50/50 shot. Thanks for giving us a chance to laugh, it is truly the best medicine.

    WFDT: The second due to C side resulted in Dr. Pepper being sprayed across the screen.

    In case DC-Firefighter logs on:

    I’d like to point out that I am still a big believer in masking up. Some guys may feel comfortable entering a structure unprotected, but I’m a big believer of being fully encapsulated. Yes, there is a loss of sensation, but I find I can stand the heat for a lot longer period of time.

    I’m sure women have fantasies of firemen coming… save them. But in the vast majority of these fantasies, the reality of it is just like in Ghost Busters….yep it’s the Stay Puft Marshmellow Man in bunker gear.

  • Annonymous

    And I’m sure so many of these women with fantasies are the same ones it takes 4 guys to bring down a ladder……not the saved woman in a firefighters fantasy.

  • FitSsikS

    Dave, never mind ‘lowering the bar’, raising it only makes it harder to get a drink.

  • justin case

    The second due wagon picks up the first wagon’s line—NO !!!.
    The second due wagon could go reverse as well. Make no mistake the second due is 2 in/2 out !

    Great way to start off the year— Just having fun

    thank you Dave

    I bet the guys in DC won’t mind if she expresses her breast milk while on duty.
    Thanks Dave. A nice way to share some well needed humor.

  • Annonymous

    OK this is getting boring now, lets spice it up:

    Paid guys use booster line, Vollies use LDH.

    Ok yeh thats the way is usually is, throw a couple low blows (the woman with the fantasy that is)

    Paid – Vollie, you’re all my brothers and I love you all (not in a fantasy way) and respect you all.

  • Annonymous

    Is it just me or in the picture does it look like Dr Fulbright is givin me the look? She looks like shes fantasizing about me. I piece of advice my good Dr, turn out the lights and keep your eyes closed, and just fantasize that its only 175 lbs on top of you (that feels like 385 lbs) Just grab one of my 6 love handles and hold on for dear life honey.

  • Ed

    She woudnot have to yell for more hose from this FF

  • Annonymous

    Thats not what I heard Ed, the rumor at the station is that you make it to the door and SHE says its supposed to be an interior attack, not a surround and drown.

  • firedude’s flame

    Or as we say when the scanner tones out: “Its a box alarm! Need more hose!”
