Medical Pulp Fiction

I know a place where nurses are nymphomaniacs. They work in shady places, wearing tight, white wiggle dressing, and exposing their voluptuous breasts to power hungry doctors. The doctors are lecherous womanizers who are healers by day and adulterers by night. They exploit women to fulfill their savage desires. These are the men and women of medical pulp fiction.

So, did I get your attention?

I’m not like those people who buy Playboy Magazine just for "the articles." I buy these books because I like to look at the vamp-laced artwork on the book covers. Here are some books I just picked for the family book collection.

Mon Dieu! What’s going on here?
Where’s the nurse, and why isn’t this patient properly draped? This doctor obviously has poor professional boundaries because “his patients tempt him too much.”

"3 Women and a French Doctor:

Magoune, a promiscuous young farm wife, has her leg in a cast, yet she is still a provocative woman.

Kitty, a beautiful English adventuress, insists that giving her “pleasure” is the only cure for her pain. (As a side note, I’m sure the HMOs would endorse this type of therapy if they thought it would save them money).

Elise is a lonesome French widow. The Doctor’s massage treatments awaken feelings she could not control!

Does a doctor remain purely professional in his patients’ boudoirs? Here is the highly sophisticated, shockingly frank story of what went on behind the closed doors of a handsome French Doctor’s consultation room.”

Note to self: Keep all hot-blooded, female patients away from French doctors who make rounds wearing a loud, kiwi green suit.

Nurse! Don’t you know it's unprofessional to parade around a doctor’s office dressed like a trollop? You certainly have the doctor’s attention. I also see you’re thinking about what happened last night after office hours instead of tending to your patients.

“His arms enfolded her as she burst into tears. His face was gray and haggard. ‘Christie, listen to me. Don’t’ you see we can’t go on like this, being together, wanting each other so damnably, without taking each other. There’s not much future in that.’ ‘It’s the only future I want, Ross,’ she told him huskily when she had controlled her tears. ‘I want to belong to you, Ross. I want to be yours completely any time and all the time. If we can’t be married for a while it doesn’t matter…Ross, I love you. I’ll never love anyone else…Never! Never!’ Recklessly, Christie offered her gorgeous, fresh young beauty to the man she loved, knowing it was all she had. A young nurse in the employ of a cynical, world-weary doctor, she knew from experience that only passion could hold a man who lived as this doctor did, pampered by women!”

What would Florence Nightingale think?

I know I've shared this book before, but I can't help showing it again.


“A doctor and a nurse embraced in the dusky shadows of the gray walled room, their bodies entwined, their lips pressed together. Suddenly there were footsteps in the corridor….somebody opened the door and turned on the light….

Hospital Doctor takes you into the private world of doctors and mistresses, nurses and lovers—an amazing world of heroes and heels who are tempted by pretty faces and a craving for cash.

From the incisive pen of a surgeon himself comes the shocking truth behind many of the operations performed annually which lead to mayhem and manslaughter; the startling expose of underpaid interns and ruthless physicians who resort to shameless practices and character assassination in their ambitious quests for fame and money.”

Oh please, nurses don’t have time to go to the bathroom, let alone time to play "doctor" with a doctor. See the nurse in the doorway. She’s telling her coworker that she better get back to the unit because all of her patients are on their call light, wanting pain medication.

I wonder how our naughty nurse is able to keep her cap from falling off while she's making out with her boyfriend.

Do such cases exist in real life? I've had nurses in my life whom I think to be good guides with lots of practical knwledge about not just their profession, but the world outside their so called world called "hospital." Your blog inspired a writer in me who's not just a professional, but an honest writer too.

I 2nd better staffing ratios. Nice blog! Will visit often. Thanks for the one about the intern rules. Changing jobs on Monday after being at a poorly managed hospital and will experience teaching hospital again. Lots of reading material here however, do you think you have a book regarding doctors who make work difficult for you if you don't give in to their "Advances"? I'm not talking medical advances either. Or try and give you money? I am NOT a prostitute damn it!
Anyways, again, thanks for the good reads=) I'll visit often=D

Let me know if you find a book with a hotly-clad student nurse so I can get a good laugh. Our asexual uniform scrubs, our required "out of the face" hair styles, combined with the fact we're too tired to have or care about having sex pretty much sets the stage for a boring read, but I'm sure someone could do something absurd with it.

Just found your blog and added it to my bookmarks today. Love it!

That post is a hoot, and I worked in a hospital for several years so I know your last couple of paragraphs are the real story.

Visiting hours must be open right now, because several of your visitors seem to be wandering over my way, where they are most welcome. I'll leave the light on over the front door for them :o)

I've been in the medical profession for over 10 years and have found it to be the most promiscuous profession out there. At the hospitals nurses are always hooking up with doctors and there are some really crazy parties. Its a free for all. Here's a great website full of helpful tips that I just found Great articles at

wow.its the shade .its the shade , the killing ...I dont gatther that entire reluctant feeling of the above phrase when , i went through the blog . i REAlly liked the blog . tooo much . how the postmodetrnism is exstracted from the bow of thoughts and feelings . Some olgas may say , the dream thought is annexed away from " hospital" but , hospital is hospital.But feelings are never dunlooped in the ed,ego and superego, they are expressed.
What the part thing may appear but its dearly a part to read such a nice blog .

Your note to self about the French doctor making rounds in the loud, kiwi green suit just about made me spit out my Diet Coke. I love your blog, especially the pulp fiction covers and critiques.

Sorry, Marcy, but the most promiscuous profession out there is the oldest profession out there! And let's not forget politicians, either!

Those books look hilarious. Love the covers; I am going to have to track some of those down. In one of the old bathrooms of my college, there is a first aid kit on the wall that has a 50's-style nurse wagging her finger and the message "Safety First!" or something similar. I'm glad nurses don't have to wear outfits like that anymore...

Your blog insults nurses and is absolutely disgusting. My guess is you are a person who wanted to be a nurse and flunked basic chemistry twice so took up an easier major instead.

Well, the interesting thing is how those pulp fictions are all from 50 years ago but you don't see them today anymore. In the old days, the workplace was still a "safe" meat market for meeting others with similar interests.

Nowadays, I guess you have bars and the internet?

As a nurse I can tell you this sort of thing happens all the time. I had to get out of the hospital for just this thing. Of course now that I di home health it is just as bad. The Drs. come to the patients homes where they see my heaving bosom and they tear at my clothes with passionate abandon!

meta-comment: Lots' of ad-spammers infestingthis thread, beginning with Marcy Clarence.

My bet is most doctor/nurse affairs represent the more realistic case of overworked, over-stressed, and together far too long. But of course, erotica in general is not known for being realistic!

"Eye-rollers" are the norm, and I've seen stuff like sex positions which are physically implausible, or even failure to keep track of previously mentioned body parts.... ;-)
