A rectal speculum combining both a direct and a lateral view without removal and reinsertion of the speculum is of advantage both in examining the rectum and in operative work. The instrument I use is essentially a short, split, circular tube provided with an obturator and also with a hinge joint on its inferior surface; the handles controlling the sides are kept apart by a spring between them or in any intermediate position between "open" and "closed" by means of the automatic rachet-way between the handles.
Speculum play is any sexual interactions involving the use of the medical devices called speculums. During speculum play, a dominant partner typically takes on the role of a doctor while a submissive person plays the patient. Speculum play can involve internal examinations of the vagina or anus. Speculum play may be used to add variety to the sex life, especially among BDSM couples. It may be a component of a medical-themed BDSM scene or a key part of the way someone with a medical fetish enjoys sex.
A NEW TYPE OF RECTAL SPECULUM FOR USE IN EXAMINING AND OPERATING
A speculum is a duck-bill-shaped device that doctors use to see inside a hollow part of your body and diagnose or treat disease. One common use of the speculum is for vaginal exams. Gynecologists use it to open the walls of the vagina and examine the vagina and cervix. A speculum is made from stainless steel or plastic.
Proctoscopy is a common medical procedure in which an instrument called a proctoscope also known as a rectoscope , although the latter may be a bit longer is used to examine the anal cavity , rectum , or sigmoid colon. A proctoscope is a short, straight, rigid, hollow metal tube, and usually has a small light bulb mounted at the end. This procedure is normally done to inspect for hemorrhoids or rectal polyps and might be mildly uncomfortable as the proctoscope is inserted further into the rectum. Modern fibre-optic proctoscopes allow more extensive observation with less discomfort.
