Voiceover:
Dr. Christian Jessen specialises in sexual health.

Dr. Christian:
There’s absolutely no need for people to feel embarrassed because believe me, I’ve seen it all before.

Why have you just come to see me now about this..?

I’d hate to see what could develop under his foreskin if it was left…

It is quite likely you may have something. If you come and see us we’re not going to chop it off but if you don’t, it might fall off by itself…

But your results are, quite frankly, shocking…

There are certain parts of our bodies that we don’t talk about but when they go wrong, we should…

You’ve got away with it…

People would rather suffer in silence then get these things treated and that’s ridiculous in this day and age.

Hi Dr Christian About 12 years ago I went through a phase of self harming and have scars on both of my arms. I have recently had a tattoo to try and cover them but really dislike it and am currently having the tattoo removed via laser treatment. I recently qualified as a nurse and am desperate to go and work on the wards but won't as I am too embarrassed. Is there anyway that you could help me please? I am so desperate. Kind regards.
