Actually, from my experience, most people do admit to wacking off.

Well, it doesn't spread the same sorts of germs as fecal matter (hepatitis for one), but I can tell you I'm not too crazy about public hot tubs for that reason. I had some friends who had one and after having a party they found tomato peelings in the filter.

I've noticed on long runs that if I had to pee at the start I sort of stop needing to after I work up a good sweat.

I admit that I only do it in my shower (and hotel rooms - I travel a lot).

About showering - I have students who have come from all over the world...the first thing they tell me is how wonderful it is to be able to take a shower every day. Having been to some of their countries I can understand the emotion.

My great grandmother (as well as everyone else at the time) used a few drops of urine for earaches.

Somehow that brings to mind the title of a song by the band "Death by Stereo", entitled "I Wouldn't P*** in Your Ear If Your Brain Was On Fire".

Come to think of it, another of their colorful song titles is an appropriate theme for the Democratic Convention: "You're a Bull**** Salesman With a Mouthful of Samples".

With all due respect, the difference between peeing in a shower and peeing in a bathtub crosses several orders of magnitude.

Go back and read her post. The conclusion was exactly what she was saying.

"Sorry, I think the number is more like 95%"

And the only evidence she offered was that she did it.

I don't suppose this means that 42% of Americans live alone and don't have to worry about someone getting in the shower after them, does it?

When I was a kid I got in trouble for peeing in the pool.

(It was from the High Dive).

I don't know how to respond to that. Some truths are just self-evident. You do what you want in your shower, and I'll do what I want in mine.

It was self evident to me until I analized the concept with an adult mind. "Civilized people don't do that" is not a reason for not doing a thing. It begs the question, "why not." If there is no answer, then my paradigm shifts and I do the thing, if consequences of doing it enhance my life.

So far they have. 8^>

Funny thing is, when I confessed it to my wife a year ago she said "I know you do." I asked how she knew and she said she can tell by the sound in the shower when I am. Her attitude is "why wouldn't you?" And she means women too!

I'd always been told, and read, that a drawn bath used more water than a shower. Methinks these stats are offbase.

I have a HUGE bathtub, but then again, I take LONG showers....

I read an article in the paper awhile back that said during WWII the soldiers urinated on their feet to kill athletes feet germs. So fellows when you're in that shower aim for the toes.
Also, my mother said urine would cure the pink eye.

Uh, no. That is not what I am saying.

Avoiding a thing just because it "seems wrong" with no, I repeat, NO evidence to support the "feeling" is what children do. Mature adults are more free than children because they have the intellectual maturity to make decisions based on information at their disposal

It is not the activity that is mature or juvenile, it is the REASON for participating or abstaining that is.

Ever hear the story of the woman who cut the ends off the ham before she put it in the oven...?

Tell me, do you also sh*t in the shower?

I saw this on deployment once. We had a Phantom Sh!tter who would leave large, healthy loads in the most bizarre places...the hood of the battalion commander's humvee, in the portable shower units, wherever. It was pretty bizarre. He never got caught.

Uh, pee hasn't trickled or run or gushed down my leg since I was a toddler, or so I'm told. And I'm not in a rush to experience it again any time soon. Oh, maybe the ladies should 'squat'??

Um, I guess pee before you wash up.

I agree that planning ahead is good. By peeing in the shower I save one tank of toilet water. And there is a certain freedom to not having to worry about splashing. 8^>

But my girlfriend, as the night went on, got madder and madder when some people kept insisting that everyone has peed in the shower, and those who deny it are just lying.

I'm with your ex-gf. Maybe by everyone, your pals were including little kids. Some of us above the age of 3 or 4 have never peed in the shower (little children aside), have never considered it an option, aren't about to, and are telling the truth.

Perhaps some of the supposed shower pee-ers are stretching the truth.

>>No, let me guess, she pees in the shower too, and, on the ham.<<

Uh no.

A man watched his wife cut the ends off a Christmas ham before she put it in the oven. He asked her why she did it. She said it was the way her mom always did it.

Well it just so happened that her mom was there for Christmas dinner so they both asked her why she did it. She said it was the way HER mom always did it.

Well, would you believe the old matriarch was there for Christmas dinner too? They all walked up to her in her wheelchair and asked her why SHE always cut the ends off the ham.

Her response: The oven in the old wood fired stove wasn't very big so I had to cut the ends off to get it to fit.

So tell me again, why is it "uncivilized" to pee in the shower?

Sometimes, as an adult (in my case, at about age 35 - 15 years ago), you throw off the shackles of intellectually unsupportable tradition and REGAIN your childhood freedom.
