Sicot and treatment of athletes

I didn't know quite where to put this. This is not really about the doping, obviously Sicot is a cheater and so on, but i have been thinking about this kind of stuff for a while: Are athletes trained to go past everything that feels right to them, regarding their bodies, their borders? Because success is more important?
And is something like requesting bikini photos not simply a question of sexual/sports but a general will to control by coaches, DSs?
I'm trying to understand the dynamics in place, and though sometimes I think I understand, I often don't.
Is requesting such photos something that happens in men's teams, too?
