Three students are taking Valencia College in Orlando because the institution required them to perform transvaginal (penetrative) ultrasound exams on each other.
From Washington Post:
The probe is also rather large and can be painful for some women. It requires heavy lubrication, and sometimes the technician will stimulate the patient to help insert the probe.
When teaching this procedure, the school asked the students to perform the procedure on each other. When possible, that is – one of the 12 students that year was a male.
Milward, Ugalde and Rose didn’t feel comfortable participating.
But when they stated as much, they were reprimanded.
