5: Zil Goldstein: Naughty Nurses
For Episode 5, Tina spoke to her friend Zil Goldstein, a badass medical professional and health advocate, about the phenomenon of Naughty Nurses. Why are nurses such pervasive pop culture sex symbols? How do trust, bedside manner, and Mommy issues play into nurse obsessions? Or is it really all about the outfits?
This episode also features a spontaneous mock medical play scene, during which we don’t really learn much besides the fact that Tina is a very bratty patient and Zil is a consummate professional!
Discussed: OLD CARTS, expertise demonstrated by a hat, enemas, white as symbol of purity, pronoun check-ins, pencil skirts, passing, institutionalized intimacy.
