PHOTOS: Prof. Has Students Paint Hot, Jacked Dude To Teach Them Human Anatomy

Sigh, why couldn’t we have had Dr. Claudia Diaz in school? The Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology lecturer utilized an unorthodox method to teach her students human anatomy: stripping a hot soccer stud down to his briefs and painting muscles over his muscles.

The stud in question, 22-year-old chiropractic student Zac O’Brien, was paid $500 to sit still for 18 hours as his classmates turned him into the “anatomical man,” using smudge-free body paint.

”Between 3am and 6am was a really hard period where not much happened,” O’Brien told The Age, “then after that we had about 50 nursing students in here.”

Dr. Diaz began the whole “anatomical man” idea in 2010 as a way to get the kids excited about anatomy, and since then students are lining up to strip down. “‘I couldn’t get the kids to keep their clothes on,” Diaz said. “They were all throwing them off.”

Sign us up, Doc.

  • NateB79

    That’s pretty awesome. They should have painted that muscle hiding in those briefs in that last pic!

  • Dakotahgeo

    That… is amazing! It’s one very good way of learning. I’ll bet they don’t forget THAT experiment soon!

  • Dxley

    They do realise that this isn’t a strip club, right?

  • EdWoody

    Reminds me of Buffy season 6.

  • Wilbready

    NateB79, that isn’t a muscle, it’s an organ.

    I think this is a great learning tool, and hot too!

  • Fitz

    Tremendously smart.
    I had to learn all those damn muscles and bones, about
    800 years ago, and something like this would have made it so much
    more real, and fun. (aside from the hot factor).

  • 1EqualityUSA

    It would be so much fun to ride the subway like this.

  • Scribe38

    I just finished anatomy 1 and 2 this would have made the class so much more fun!

  • 1EqualityUSA

    Now, if Justin Bieber had this tatt’, maybe I could look without grimacing.

  • Teleny

    I wonder if he sprang wood? :)

  • Victor_in_PA

    I would definitely have gone to med school if this is how they taught anatomy! And, I agree, it should’ve been anatomically correct (sans tighties – and tight they are!).

  • Bozen

    My anatomy teacher taught us by reading his power points word for word. God was he awful.

  • DarkZephyr

    @Dxley: Prude

  • J.c.

    Though it would not be as much fun, a real challenge would be to paint this on a FAT dude!

  • Billysees


  • emperor28_1

    Great idea that is DEFINITELY an example of thinking ‘outside the box’. Just hope the subject isn’t ticklish!

  • Dan Shill

    Too awesome, although I think he would have been more anatomically accurate without the briefs!

  • balehead

    Gay prudes are my favorite new hate speech group… typical….

  • D P

    Gawd, I cannot believe I didn’t stop to comment on this one…

    Reminds me when I was in high school in biology. I kept fantasizing of that happening when the teacher began the lecture of human physiology, and one of the students was my crush. Hot and bothered, I was, and understandably couldn’t concentrate!

    I want to take this class!

  • NateOcean

    “smudge-free body paint”?

    I thought these were full body tattoos.


  • oldbrit

    Wouldn’t it have been more anatomically correct if he wasn’t wearing those shorts?

  • oldbrit

    P. S. I’ll sign up for anatomy class if I can paint his crotch next time.

  • Mike G

    @EdWoody: Eeeew. But props for the Buffy reference. (g)

    I’m not sure I think the exercise is particularly educational, but the end result, even ignoring the guy’s great body, is way cool.
