What specialty is equivalent to Spanish fly? My vote is for pediatrics- compassionate, good with kids, charming...

Nah, I think it's gynecology. But only if the gynecologist is nice and sensitive with his patients. Trust me, my mom has a big platonic crush on hers. :p

I hope my mom never reads this thread. :scared:

Damn straight.

Neurosurgeons can operate on their patients and alter their cerebrums so that they fall in love with the neurosurgeon....I like to call it Cupid's scalpel. :)

However, if I were to guess, probably Obstetrics (girls love babies, right?)

Blame Nip/Tuck if you want, but definitely Plastic Surgery. To be able to change someone into something completely different is remarkable.

i think this q was brought up (complete with poll) in the allo boards about a year ago. i remember emergency medicine was well in the lead, with obgyn taking up the rear. as a guy, i've got to agree. em docs are the closest things women have to superman - they know how to fix *anything* on the scene, or at least clutch the dying patient in arms while roaring out, 'whyyyyyyyyyy?'. dermatologists, in comparison, look like vanity doctors. they can nip and tuck all day long, but (to paraphrase radiohead), gravity always wins in the end. and that's depressing. neurosurgeons are skilled, no doubt, but they're never home. and you can't make love to a man who's never home (and losing his hair to boot. by the time you're a full on nsurg, you're pushing mid thirties). so strike them out. i don't know enough about orthoapedic doctors to take them down, but if they have anything to do with feet, it can't be that hard. finally, pediatricians would likely be the closest match to em docs, for precisely the reasons given in the op. guys who are good with kids encourage their women to make kids - with them. but the eventual problem with having a ped husband is the superman syndrome. a pediatrician is the clark kent of the medicinal world - except he never turns into the man of steel. he isn't em. and it only takes one episode, movie, or cartoon to teach an ms1 that lois lane doesn't respect clark kent. she's knocking red boots with the man in tights. once again, superhero analogies are the only ones capable of describing real life phenomena. to summarize: if a woman can't have george clooney, she's going to go for the guy who seems to do what he does on tv, except in real life. that would be the emergency medicine physician. :cool:

Dunno. If a guy's a GYN, I could see that leading to a major backfire in the bedroom.

Short answer...any kind of surgeon.

There are 3 things that would affect the "sexiness" of the specialty:
1) income
2) bodyparts worked on
3) "personality" associated with specialty

I've seen people post in with pediatrics and OBGYN. I disagree.

Peds: Less money than many other specialties, and saving kids isn't necessarily sexy. This will help you get women who are looking for the caring, compassionate type, most likely for marriage, but in terms of inspiring immediate sexual attraction it's probably not the best.

OBGYN: Not as much money as many others, and the chance of perceived awkwardness. I could see why a woman would think, "Oh my god he knows my body so well he must know what to do with it (wink, wink)". However, I could just as easily see the woman being slightly uncomfortable with a man who knows so much about her most personal (and to her, embarassing) secrets.

I nominate any kind of surgeon for the following reasons:

The money is great, the best of all kinds of doctors.

You are perceived as a lifesaver (as opposed to a dermatologist or physiatrist or something)

What you do is easily understandable (try explaining what a physiatrist does, or why you chose nephrology)

You are great with your hands

Finally, and this may be a result of the surgeon himself and not the specialty persay, but surgeons tend to have the personalities associated with sexiness. (i.e. confidence, leadership, bit of cockiness, risk-taking, etc.)

I suppose neurosurgery or heart surgery might top the list of surgical subspecialties, though people are very familiar with orthopedics as well.

I don't know about plastics, despite Nip/Tuck...some women might get turned off by the idea, as in they don't like the idea of breast implants, or they might suddenly develop a complex around you or something.

I think we have a small problem-the sexiest specialty for a guy may not be the sexiest one for a girl and both guys and girls are replying. Hmmmm.

Not if you're into playing with gyno equipment. ;)

"Hey, your dad's dying. Want to have dinner with me?" Is probably not the best pickup line.

If I met a guy who was a ped, I would think "softie". If he was a gyn, I would think "weird, I wonder why?", if he was into plastics, I would run away before he starts looking at my features and boobies with skepticism... I don't know, myabe cardiac or neuro surgeon, ER, or onc? So many to choose from.... :D

i disagree, some girls/women are really turned on by the guys that are good with children. it screams "daddy" which translates into something sexual. electra-complex anyone?

Familiarity breeds contempt, even for vaginas. Haven't you heard of the butcher that becomes a vegetarian?
