42 Percent Of Americans Pee In The Shower - 7 Percent Never Bathe

PISCATAWAY, N.Y. (Wireless Flash) -- Urine trouble now. According to a new survey, at least four out of every 10 Americans pee while taking a shower.

According to a shower survey sponsored by VertiSpa, 42 percent urinate while bathing, certainly pissing off the 58 percent who don't.

That's not the only stat splashed from the shower study. The average shower is 101 degrees Fahrenheit and uses nearly 50 gallons of water.

-- 52 percent of Americans sing in the shower, with "Singin' In The Rain" being the top tune.

-- 53 percent of people shower in the morning, while 29 percent wait until evening.

-- Finally, the scariest stat of all: 7 percent of Americans claim they never bathe at all.

And I wonder how many people pee in the ocean and in swimming pools.

Peeing in the ocean attracts sharks...

(I am not making this up)

A. is no argument at all. Why is it disgusting?

For the same reason picking your nose is disgusting.

B. has never been a problem for me, and even if it was I still assert that it would be harmlessly washed away down the drain.

Eventually. Tell you what. Get a bottle of food color. Get under the shower. Pour the food color out. Watch how long it takes before all the color disappears.

C. I have no idea what you're talking about.

Oh you will though. You will.

Yes, but as a man I can fairly easily aim my urine where I want to, like into the drain.

I know that incontinence is, but I fail to see how taking a leak in the shower has anything to do with it.

There is still the splash factor. The drain is a lot father away then the toilet would be and is a much smaller target.

One of the things that is recommended to help with incontinence is what is called, "bladder retraining" in other words "learn to hold it." If you practice it now you will have less trouble when you are older.

50 gal is about 10" deep in my (almost) 2'x4' tub: about the amount I'd use for a long-ish soak/bath; no where near what I'd use for a shower though.
