Oh, for Pete's sake! being asked to show your tits to s female gorilla is not exactly harassment of the usual sort. Say No; quit; walk out; insist the men show their equipment; you are not helpless automatons!

Deplorable and unforgivable. This is an instance of a clear breach of animal research standards along with grave risk to human participants. Permission to conduct any further research must be revoked by the appropriate committee.
