Lying on the table, I couldn't see much except for the light shining above me. I could hear the voices of the nurses, casually joking with the surgeon and the other attendants. My fa­ther was there to watch, as were my two elder brothers. The oldest brother was a medical student, and the second brother soon would be one, too. I was feeling self-conscious about my nudity, particularly my recent shave, which everyone was going to see as soon as I was asleep. In my mind, I could hear my older brother laughing. As the anesthesiologist was about to insert the needle into my arm, one of the nurses asked me if I knew what it was. I didn't really. She told me it was truth serum, and that while I was asleep they were going to find out all about my sex life, and girlfriends.
