Nurse 3-D Will Raise Your Temperature

Hospital hotties and naughty nurses get almost everyone’s temperatures rising each Halloween. It is no surprise to see the sexy nurse uniform ranked as the hottest Halloween costume year after year. Providing that the movie Nurse 3-D is released prior to the end of the Mayan calendar, men and women who love their hospital hotties and naughty nurses are in for quite a surprise!
Nurse 3-D, a Lionsgate film, will leave absolutely nothing to the imagination. Each gruesome and sexy moment will be shown in its full 3-D glory. Combining some of the predominate themes of ER, Dexter, and Monster, this movie revolves around the story of Abby, the nurse who seems normal by day but kills off the philandering men by night.
And if you are a testosterone lover do not despair, this movie is not just about the naughty nurses. Leaving his High School Musical days well behind him, Corbin Bleu will be dropping his drawers (or scrubs) to show off the muscles he built shooting 3 pointers. His innocent days are long gone now as he has been staving off the breads and pasta to get those glutes of his in awesome shape! Young Corbin Bleu does not want to disappoint his movie goers. In a recent interview with US Magazine, Corbin states, “You see my rear end. It’s tasteful. It’s done well.”
Katrina Bowden, also starring in Nurse 3-D, has seen a fair share of blood. Not only will she be trying to put an end to crazy nurse Abby, she will also be fighting for her life in the movie Piranha 3DD. Katrina has been getting into top form for these big screen 3-D movies with kickboxing, spinning, and yoga. Trust me, Katrina; I would be doing all of that too, if not more, if I had to appear in a 3-D movie half naked.
So what is the appeal of the sexy nurse in our culture? Most men report that this costume is one of the sexiest around. One male rated it as a 1.5 million on a scale of 1- 10 because he noted having an incredible experience when his girlfriend donned her costume. The nurse symbolizes the caretaker and the healer of all wounds. What girlfriend or wife hasn’t reported that her significant other is a “big baby” when he is not feeling well. Masculinity seems to completely go out the window when men get sick, and they want to resort to being a child again.
Psychologist Carl Jung would have explained the naughty nurse costume as being the “persona” or the “shadow” of the female. The “persona” is what other people see us as, and what we already display to the entire world. The “shadow” is the darker side of us. The shadow may have some sexual or inappropriate elements in it. Each Halloween we are allowed to show off our shadow. The naughty nurse outfit may be showing the sexual side that we repress the other 364 days of the year. Or perhaps the nurse costume is chosen to enhance the “persona” of being somebody who nurtures and cares for others. Either way, men hoot and holler for this one.
It is also interesting to note that the vast majority of nurse uniforms incorporate the color red. If you wish to see this for yourself, do a quick Google Image search for “sexy Halloween nurse outfits.” A recent study in the Journal of Experimental Psychology showed that women who wear the color red appear much more sexually receptive to males. Since males viewed these females as being more receptive to sexual advances, the men were also more attracted to them. Interestingly the love affair with the color red applies to humans and non-human primates. Note to single women everywhere: Wear red!
But what really gets my attention about this movie is the fact that the idea came about because of a series of fetish-inspired nurse photos that are said to be shot by Lionsgate’s co-head of marketing, Tim Palen. To see these photos for yourself just do a quick Google Image search of “Saw VI blood drive posters.” Interesting to say the least, no?
Does the creative visionary behind Nurse 3-D have a psychiatric disorder? In all actuality the vast majority of people have some form of fetish, but they choose to repress it or at least keep it in the bedroom. In some ways we could give a “bravo” because Tim Palen is brave enough to truly express himself through this artistic medium. True abnormality does not exist unless the fetish causes distress in the person’s relationship, career, or personal life. For example, if a man went home each night and absolutely demanded that his wife don her sexy nurse uniform, and it caused a marital riff, then psychological treatment may be called for.
I don’t want to pick on the men entirely here. So let’s say your local soccer mom kept missing work to check out Corbin in Nurse 3-D. Before she knows it her employer fires her. Yes, she too may need some psychological assistance.
The big question is, what are your thoughts on Nurse 3-D? Will you be watching it on the big screen?
