Know Your Audience

A friend of mine interviewed a volunteer patient today. We do these practice interviews to sharpen our interview skills. During the interview, questions about this patients sexual health came up. We always ask any patient if they are practicing safe sex; however, this patient happened to be homosexual.

After the patient confirmed that he practiced safe sex, my friend asked..."What kind of contraception do you use?"

We all burst out laughing...even the patient...who replied, "Uh...I think you mean protection."
