Rephrasing The Question

Rephrasing The Question

While trying to track down the cause of a recurrent vaginitis in a young woman, I asked her whether her partner was circumcised.

My query drew only a blank look.

I rephrased the question in what I felt was a clever and tactful manner:

"When he does not have an erection, can you see the head of his penis, or is it covered by folds of skin?"

Her unabashed and matter-of-fact response:

"Doc, I've never seen him without an erection!"
