I consider myself a quick learner. When I turned 6, the nurse at my children's clinic was going to try to start taking my temperature orally. My mom was also trying to get me to cooperate by telling me not to bite down on it. It went okay for a couple minutes, then I started rolling it around from side to side between my teeth and the nurse said "WHOA! STOP!". She promptly took it out of my mouth. Next thing I knew, my pants and underwear were pulled down and legs raised, and out came that dreaded vaseline and thermometer with the thick, stubby bulb. Then I suddenly felt the oh so familiar cold invasive discomfort up the butt that had terrorized me for my first 6 years. I cried too. Next time she tried taking it orally I knew damn well to keep my mouth still.
I can also remember vividly the first time my wife wanted to take my rectal temperature. She didn't have to ask me twice because my drawers were down in seconds..I'm a VERY QUICK learner.

I was around 6, and the nurse gave me an oral temp. I started to talk with the thermometer in my mouth, and she gave me a stern warning....I stopped talking immediately, because I wasn't going to have my temp. taken rectally...no how, no way. I absolutely hated rectal temps. as a kid, and made every effort to switch to oral. The fetish started 20 years after that.
