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.
