One of the highlights of Family Orientation Night at the nursing program, along with the skeleton, was the big rubber man resting in one of the skills lab's hospital beds. He's a calm brute, veined but not haired, full of orifices to check, but oddly endowed with the same codpiece maleness found on Ken dolls -- a strange bit of shyness for nursing students, all of whom have already dissected human bodies and many of whom are no longer even virgins.
