He said: ‘We’ll go and sit down and the doctor will come and talk and the doctor’s maintaining a high level of professionalism. He’s like, “Well, you know sir, I have to, in order to share information” – I’m like, “Deyjah, they want you to sign this so we can share information. Is there anything you would not want me to know?” “See doc? No problem.”
‘So then they come and say, “Well, I just want you to know that there are other ways besides sex that the hymen can be broken, like bike riding, athletics, horseback riding, and just other forms of athletic physical activity.”
‘So I say, “Look doc, she don’t ride no horses, she don’t ride no bike, she don’t play no sports. Just check the hymen please and give me back my results expeditiously.”‘
