This web page is taking on a distinctly male slant – but that’s ok. This gizmo is just fabulous! It is used to train doctors what normal and abnormal prostates feel like when, well, you know, you “get checked” down below.

When you insert your finger you actually feel a rubber model of a prostate.

The hole in the bottom of the teaching device allows for a glove. One side is normal, two enlarged prostates, and one prostate feels cancerous.

Hytrin is a medication which helps urine flow when you take a piss. It works by opening a channel through the prostate through which urine travels.

Incidentally, only males humans and dogs have urine outflow tracts through the prostate.
