A sailor once told me about a disliked chief who was always lecturing those going on liberty to avoid STDs. The chief had something on shore he tapped regularly. The sailor who worked in the ship’s laundry took the chief’s skivies and soaked them in bleach, then dried them in the extractor. An extractor is a high speed dryer that simply removes water through centrifugal force. That process was repeated many times before the skivies along with the rest of the clothing was returned to chiefs’ quarters. The chief upon wearing the skivies developed a bad rash in the genital region. The ship’s hospital corpsmen being in on it, told the chief he had the worse case of a sexually transmitted disease they’d ever seen.
When the ship eventually got underway, the chief was still in the hospital.
