ALL men love to see ALL women's privates, Breasts, Vagina,. The Docs even do a Clitorial examination and they feel all of the various folds of skin that make up the Vulva. So what is the surprise. ALL old men and young alike whoever they are brother, son, dad, husband, and whatever their proffesion, clergy, priest, doctor, lawyer, indian chief love to view and touch womens Nipples and whatever else a woman will undress. Or a woman who wishes to remain in a chaste condition can go to a Doc who is a FEMALE and this puts an end to it. So what is it that women cannot understand about this? Lets see, Ok, no woman ought to get undressed for any man other than her own husband. And if your determined to go to a male to have your breasts and vagina looked at and handled by a male Doc then why not have your husband there watching?

Are you serious? I'm thinking you must be a total idiot for thinking this! I guess if you have a prostate exam, let's say for YOU it's a guy, and he takes a picture of your - could it get erect penis - & you don't know about it because you turned your head to cough...that should be ok right? Because you had a male doctor - and you're a male.

I can't believe that some of you people are not only ok with the fact that this happened, but to then say it should be expected is insane. A doctor should be someone you trust, not someone you just expect to do some of the things that this guy has done. As far as this being over money, these poor women aren't going after money. Everyone just wants this guy stopped. He has already filed bankruptcy, leaving his wife and family in a pinch. There really isn't any money to get. Just imagine if this had happened to you, or worse, your wife or daughter. I know what it would do to me if this guy had done this to my little girl. Paying me money would be the least of his worries. Personally, i hope that he never sees the outside of a prison again.

To All: I'm actually one of the patients photographed. I was his patient for over 25 years -- he delivered my children, performed surgery, ... While I don't feel like I'm necessarily harmed by what occurred, it nevertheless was against the law, and there are probably some women it has harmed emotionally. I am cooperating with all authorities, as it is a duty of all U.S. citizens. I wholeheartedly empathize with his patients whom this has harmed and his poor family.

I was fifteen, he did more than take pictures. To those, with brains, like Robert, THANK YOU!!!!! It IS NOT about the money, there is NO MONEY!! I had never dated, attended sex ed., or been exposed to any behavior like that, until I was entrusted with this....'Professional'...I just want him away from the innocent little girls out there! I HAD to see that Doctor, I had no choice because I was FIFTEEN! My life, my family, everything has been negatively affected by this, I quit school because I felt so discusting! Before that, I made A's and B's. No Doctor, teacher, preacher, lawyer, father, plumber, president, NO ONE has the right to VIOLATE other human beings, male or female, young or old, EVER!!! It IS wrong, if you disagree, in my opinion, your just as twisted and evil as the doctor. Have a nice day.

Honestly, these photos are unidentifiable so why not just let it rest.... I mean who in the world is going to recognize your vagina in these pics... lol! So if you don't want to deal with this crap then don't go identify your privates. Those that do are just in search of money. For those of you who talk about violations of your rights, that's a joke... Are you not forced to wear a seatbelt??? Does your tax dollars not go to things like planned parenthood and free condoms? Are you not told that your children must go to school or be home-schooled? What about innoculations? We are forced to do things against our will all the time.

I mean the man obviously has a problem. Revoke his doctoring license (or whatever its called) and let everyone move on. These were just photos he had for his own personal use ~ It's not like he hadn't already seen these parts anyways. I'm just surprised it took 20 years before anyone said anything and NOW EVERYONE wants to JUMP on the BANDWAGON.

Gretta, you are a fucking idiot!! I (I'm not really sure based on your responses) hope were not born female. Otherwise, where have you lost your brain? It doesn't matter what gender of doctor a person goes to see; he/she wants some sound medical advice or diagnosis! Does that give the doctor the right to use my body for his pornographic pleasures? NO!!!

For all of you who say that these women are out for the money, NO WE AREN'T!! He has no money left. His wife left with half of his money; the rest will be used for legal fees.

The pictures weren't ALL unidentifiable. Profiles were easily recognized; I know this because I had to identify my FACE, not my vagina.

Do you people not understand the moral responsibility of doctors? As former patients of his, we signed a nondisclosure/ privacy form, just as most doctors use now. What happened to the "privacy"? If it weren't for a necessary surgery, I would never have gone to him. You would be surprised at the amount of women who felt violated within the last few months of his tenure. I have learned a valuable lesson. DON'T TRUST ANYONE!

Be sure you know the facts before you assume anything. To those of you who don't agree with what I had to say, "GO TO HELL!"

It is very sad to have to tolerate with doctors who do not practice moral work ethics. Not only is it degrading to the patients, but also in this case, the medical profession in general. You would have to be an imbecile to think this type of behavior is acceptable. But as we all know small minds think small thoughts. Would you justify the doctors action if this were your family member. Tell your wife, mother, or daughter how you feel.

You're pretty stupid aren't you? Do you know how many female OB's there are compared to male OB's and further more, the man took pictures without our permission or knowledge. He also took pictures of his own staff's daughters. How would that make you feel?

Yes I have been to doctors, clinics, hopital for delivery and so on. There are patient laws that the physicians and technicians must abide a request from the patient. I always request a female physician or practinioner and even a technician. If you get an EKG all mae technicians want th bra off and if this is the case then I simply tell the technician that I request a female technician to replace him and so it goes for mammogram and esspecially a breat ultrasound. Now if there is a life or death accident then modesty takes a back seat. Ladies, the reason that men do not respect us is because we are the ones that control sex in this society. And if we just take it all off for anyone even those who wear a white coat then we get what we get. And through all my years I see that we have gone to a unisex mantality and this is so sad that we as ladies, women, and young girls have become and are proud of the fact that we just take it off. We certainly have earned the attitudes and the values that most men have about us. We will just take it off at the drop of a hat. All you have to do is say no but I will do thus and such instead. You can just take it off for your husband, If you want to. You ladies dont know what you are missing getting naked for only one man. It is very special. I have noticed something else that mothers make a dreadful mistake in taking their young daughters to a male gynicologist. This early nudity with a strange man takes the thrill and the edge off of a young girl and it becomes very easy after this for girls to go all the way with boys they are dating. Look at all the sex going on. Why on earth would a mother want her young daughter to spread her legs for a strange man even though there may be a female nurse present this only provides an audience for this experience that cannot be taken back. And a young girl can very well percieve the enjoyment the male physician takes in exploring her breasts. And then the mother wonders why her lovely daughter has become this sexual being at such a tender age. Its the mothers fault for this introduction to sexuality. And the daughter knows her own mother is also undressing for this physician. Who ever wants to poo poo this and think I am such a prud, go ahead. You and your family is paying the price because you want to show it instead of conceal it and save the thrill for just your husband. Remember it is the females who are the ones who control sex in our society and it has certaily become a very great perversion.
Gretta
From your grammer and lack of proof reading it is obvious that you also lack in education and haven't realized that there are those who can and do behave in a professional manner which LaFuria did not. Physicians, male or female, are supposed to treat us with respect and confidentiality. This man chose to be perverted. We are also supposed to trust our clergy, teachers, policemen and other professionals regardless of their sex. But time and time again it's been proven that you can't trust or believe everyone male or female. These women used this man because he had a very established business and was considered to be educated and professional. It's up to you to educate yourself so you won't be so affraid of a proffesional who is of the opposite sex. How do you know the female OB isn't a lesbian?

In defence of the OBGYN Doctor. The President said it best. All across America male OBGYN Doctors are not allowed to practice their LOVE for Women. Doctor Peter Lafuria is only guilty of Loving women the way the President spoke it. He loves women and he did nothing wrong by taking a few pictures.

He took pictures without permission. He also took gowns off patients without reason or permission. There is no reason for the man to listen to a woman's lungs without her gown being on especially after the woman pulled the gown up while he kept trying to pull it off. The man is criminal and you have no clue as to how insulting that situation is.

This is all so true, as your previous comment too. I was a patient of LaFuria's because my cousin had him as a doctor for her first and she recommended him to me. Well I wish that I had listened to my "inner sense" because i was always uncomfortable around him and i never had that feeling before with a gyno. But hey what done is done, the guy has some problems that need attention, i am not going to let it take control of my life, and i hope that other women will be able to move on and not be scared to trust their future gyno's...just be cautious and watch for the warning signs, i wish i did!

A woman doctor asked to see my-privats, I took her outside and showed her my private army.
Then we shot her-but it was all in good fun.
I think the moral of the story is this,if you bend over, male or female, you are leaving the back door open and people will enter.
So what's the solution? cemente in the vulva? I think not.Lets talk it over, like rational human beings and then go for juice and lolly-pops.
I hope this is of some help. Dr Tommy Gunn MD

This new illegal POLL on illegal aliens' photos leads me to believe that is why we are running short of OBGYN Photos. Out tax dollars go to Mexican cameras.

Wow, I can't get over the fact that so many people think that this is ok. Are you freaking kidding me??????

Yes as a Patient, we do not always have a choice of the OBGYN, our insurance kinda plays an important role in deciding who our dr. will be. So to those who say we did it to ourselves by seeing a male dr. Blow it! k. And that's the nicest way I can put it.

Another, we shouldn't have to pick our doctor's based on their sex. That's just ignorant. We should be able to trust our Dr.'s NO MATTER WHAT!!!!! You know when they become A dr. they put their selfs in a place of trust and it should be held!

These women went for a exam to make sure that the were healthy. They did not ask for photos to be taken without their knowledge. The fact that some pleople think its ok for this to have happened withouth their knowledge is insane. I hope you never have to go through the embarresment and discrace that you feel when something of this nature happens. Or maybe you should.....then maybe you would pull your nose out of the clouds and wake up!!!!!!!!
