Peeing in the shower is disgusting to matter what gender. BUT, hearing that women do it too (no i'm not sexiest) leaves me completely appalled. When I say women I am referring to adult women, not little drunken college students. I had a friend admit to me one time that she does it (or perhaps did, she may have grown out of it). It was the first time I ever heard of the idea of urinating in the shower. "To save time", I think was the reason? Not so sure.?.?!?. :-/ Well, it had been a few years then randomly while out and about the topic was brought up again, by a separate source. Seriously! Urinating in the shower is a hot topic of disgust for me.
So as I write this blog, it occurs to me that I have never even done a Google search of this topic. Maybe I'm a little scared too? No. The truth is that it has never even crossed my mind. So Googling now. Results.....AHHHHH. In 2009, Glamour magazine did a poll on bathroom health and one of the questions was "Have you ever peed in the shower?". 75% replied yes! This particular question's results were not broken down between male and female like some of the others but what gender do you think typically reads Glamour!
See the excerpt from Today Health that was updated by Glamour on May 11, 2009.
"Have you ever peed in the shower?
Hmmm, apparently the good ole doctor doesn't agree with me. That is fine, he is more than welcome to urinate in his shower all he wants. But please, when visiting someone else be courteous because they might not be into that type of recycling. Just because your urine is sterile doesn't mean the rest of us want to share it.
Glamour was not the only positive tap for this subject. Several threads are out there. And it seems like I may actually be the only person who wants to vomit these days. Sigh....
Dear gal friend who broke this sad truth to me. I still love you even though I have just found on of your tom boy flaws.
