Gwen came to the clinic complaining of numbness in her vaginal area. She was seen by Gregory House after performing a gynecological exam, he asked the patient how many children she had. She confirmed she had given birth to six. He then asked if she used a very strong vibrator during masturbation. She was shocked by the question but Dr. House had realized that overuse of vibrators often results in such numbness.
Even worse, Dr. House decided to tell a class of fifth-graders about this patient when he was asked what he did as a doctor on a typical day. He was cut short by Ms. Corwin, but Alex, one of the students, still asked what a vibrator was.
