Prompted by the popularity of peeing standing up on a recent QOTD,

Answered

    I’m wondering how many of us have attempted to check out the view from the other side? (Just to clarify, I’m talking innocent curiosity, not digging into homosexual exploration.)

    Ladies, have you ever tried to pee standing up? I’m thinking this might be pretty common. I believe most of my friends did as children. It’s hard to straddle a toilet far enough to get all the way over the water when your legs are kid-sized!

    Fellas…I’m not sure what to ask. Is there anything girls do that you don’t that you tried to mimic when growing up? Ever stick dolls up your shirt and pretend to give birth? (Our DD used to do that all the time.)

    @Duchess, thanks for asking this question! The responses are quite hilarious. We all need a good laugh once and awhile!

      I’m sure I tried urinating outside as a kid, but I honestly don’t remember it. I actually never heard of people peeing in the shower before TMB (a post from many years ago). I have no desire to do it and I even asked DH if he ever did it for convenience and he looked at me like I was nuts! So, that’s a nope in our household.

      It’s a myth that urine is sterile; it does contain low levels of bacteria, but nothing to worry about.

        I think from things I have read around certain desires since joining TMB, and out of curiosity, I have tried it.  Granted, I tried it/do it in the shower (before I wash)…. I aim for the drain.  I even think my husband encouraged me to do it so he could watch, while we were showering together.  In some conversations he has talked about the “golden shower” on his feet  😀

          My wife has peed in the shower before.  A few weeks ago it caught me by surprise.  All of a sudden I noticed yellow water at her feet.  I reacted and she apologized and we both had a laugh about it.  When I was a young teen, I put on my friend’s sister’s bra to see what it felt like.

            Not sure if my wife has ever tried peeing while standing even in the shower. That subject has never come up. I’m not sure she has ever done it outdoors while hiking in the wild.  I can’t say as there’s anything girls do that I tried to mimic. I do sit once in a while to pee while at home. It’s a lot easier in the middle of the night when groggy to sit than to try and aim in the right direction. Like the old sign  in some bathrooms: “we aim to please,  you aim too, please”. I do remember that during High school freshman initiation the guys had to wear skirts and nylons and make up.

              I know to the women, @Duchess address the “trying to stand and pee”, and the guys were asked about other things.  I remember as a girl, stuffing a sock in my pants to see what it would be like to have that “bulge” I always saw on the boys/men…. it’s a good thing I am not growing up in today’s world, they would have me convinced I needed to be a different gender out of simple curiosity.  🙄

                When younger, I went on a 2-wk backpacking/camping trip in a remote area of Canada. I learned pretty quickly that women are going to have trouble peeing in the bush (while squatting)if their pants are still around their ankles, plus clothing and boots might get splashed if you can’t dig a hole. We discovered an immensely indecorous but practical position for peeing– Legs straight, rear in the air, hands on the ground or as close as you can get. Urine goes straight out behind. We ladies laughed with each other, it was so funny. But the only way to avoid having to take boots, pants off. Would’ve been nice to have that silicone product (mentioned earlier here) that I’ve seen advertised to aid in peeing while standing, could’ve avoided some mosquito bites to my rear. 😂
                As a side mention, the famous (among travelers) squatting bathrooms in Arab countries mystified me. Some of them have predetermined places for your feet to go, and the hole for excrement is not always ideally placed, causing the need to try and stand to aim. Skirts were a must.

                  This is hilarious, and I’m surprised with how adventurous people seem to be in the MB that they haven’t tried urinating while standing…urine is sterile and probably less bad for your shower than dirts/oils from going though a normal day.

                  Zelda urinates in the shower on a regular basis, and I do too. Early in our relationship, she even “aimed” my urine stream sometimes, making it do sine waves, etc. My daughter definitely wants/wanted to pee on trees outside like her older brothers. She’s done it plenty of times in secret, though one time I saw her (in the front yard!) and she actually did a pretty good job! In fact, she would get less urine on her feet/legs/shoes/socks than one of her brothers! She’s still quite young and talks about what she’ll do one day when she “grows a penis”…we’re still working on that…

                  As far as the reverse, there was a time I tried on my sister’s 1-piece swimsuit to see what it was like. Oh, and there’s a VHS of me dressed up as a girl (with breasts and everything) and being interviewed at one of my older sister’s slumber parties. I hope that VHS tape has been lost/destroyed…

                    You know, warm water can give you the urge to pee, there is something nice about just being able to let it go!  I have even held my pee, bypassing the toilet, just so I can experience the sensation I get in the shower.  😀   That’s probably TMI.  LOL!

                    How’s this for TMI–I will sometimes pee in the pool!

                    I want to make sure I am never in the same pool as you!   😛

                    I’ve only recently learned that the smell I always thought was chlorine was some chemical reaction that makes the scent stronger when there’s pee in the pool. DD takes great glee in reminding me of that over and over!

                    Yea, there are just some things best not to think about, and instead think of it as “building the immunity”… it’s how I have gotten through my kids’ childhood as a mother!  😯

                    Scotts comment reminded me of a sign that I saw somewhere.

                    It said

                    “Welcome to our OOL, there is no P in it. Please help us keep it that way”

                      DW does pee in the shower – and I do on occasion too. Saves time and water lol!

                      I’m not interested in menstruation or giving birth! Or wearing makeup! I have been intrigued with how handy skirts (or kilts) would be for peeing – especially when going commando!

                      @Scott – you tried on a 1-piece swimsuit? I’ve never tried on a 2-piece myself! 😉

                      Har har. However, for the past several years, I’ve actually stuck with using a swim shirt, so I normally do use a 2-piece!

                        It is unfortunate that simple or innocent curiosity has morphed into the idea that you must be something other than how God created you. Who hasn’t been a little curious growing up of trying something on just to see?
