Why should men have to wee in public?
I know this is a weird subject but I heard a conversation on the radio today and it struck a cord with me.
The subject was urinals and the etiquette surrounding them, eg not looking at other men’s peckers, not getting too close, not making eye contact etc, and it dawned on me that I reckon I’d be pissed if I had to always pee in public.
I mean for efficiency reasons I can see the benefits of providing a wall to wee against, a quick shake and then being able to leave. (Because we all know that most men don’t wash their hands after weeing, but don’t even get me started on that).
And I suppose they could use the toilet with a door but I presume that’s really there for those in desperate need of going to dump city.
But what about those who don’t like getting their old fella out in public and weeing? What if my boys are like that?
I suppose I just think it’s a bit unfair for blokes who’d prefer to do their business in private, or maybe there’s not many that care about that?
In saying that I suppose I should praise the mighty urinal because it does free up the toilets with doors for me when I sneak into the blokes bogs at music festivals to save waiting in line for 30 minutes on the girl’s side.
I wonder if teenagers and young boys actually have to psych themselves up for getting out their willy to wee in public for the first time?
Maybe it’s a bit like going to a public toilet and trying REALLY hard not to make any noise while doing our business – silly but I reckon we’ve all done it.
I promise this will be the last of my toilet posts for awhile, I blame my kids for making me think more about the subject than I’d really like to.
