Peeing in the shower...?

A debate as to whether or not this is ok has raged in our house for a long time. Make sure you select "English" from the drop down menu. Or really, whatever language you want, I guess.

I'm fully on the side of this is just fine. Urine is sterile (which is something I tell myself every time I get peed on), it kills the bacteria in the bottom of the shower, and I'm bizarrely obsessed with saving water. I don't specifically hold it so I can pee in the shower, but if I'm in there and I have to go...

Tyler is extremely against this on the grounds that it is gross.

Where do you stand?

You know what's really sad about this post-is that we've (Tom and I) have had this actual conversation before. What is the world coming to. And...I'm not answering your question.

Wow, what a video. Jeremy and I have had this conversation before, too. Verdict: totally OK. It's fun for the kids, too. How can you keep a little kid from peeing in the shower? And if you do try to tell them not to do it, what rationale can you possibly give them?

All of this to say that YES, in our family, it is OK. As Jeremy says (via Seinfeld), it's all pipes.

Oh, fo sho! I don't really know about Nate but I'm pretty sure he does too. And I'll go even further: my sister and I were quite open about sharing a bathroom while peeing, like leaving the door unlocked and coming in to pee whilst the other was showering. To this day, I do not lock my bathroom door and Nate is cruel and likes to quickly open the door and run so I'm out there in the breeze. Anywho, so on separate occasions, both of us have gotten into the shower just to pee when needed and the other was on the pot. Then, just turn on the shower for a second, wash it down. That way we can both go at the same time when needed. Is there any other facet of my life you would like to know about? :)

Peeing in the shower all the way. Who doesn't pee in the shower?

...I have to say, I am a NO Pee in the shower kind of girl. Mostly because I just do it. I guess you right that it is sterile...but yeah, not my bag.

Dan and I both agree that it is okay to pee in the shower, though Dan claims he does not do it. I will say, however, that I won't do it in anyone's shower except my own, out of respect (and the respect of the gag reflexes) for others who don't agree with me.

Tyler, you know that people who pee in the shower don't slosh around in their urine, right? They just go. And then it runs down the drain. They don't catch it in their hands and then rub it all over their faces and all over the shower. They don't accidentally pee on their towel. They don't spin in circles while peeing. The pee spray doesn't reach the loofah or the washcloth. The pee just drops to the floor and then down the drain. What's so gross about that?

peeing in shower, OK. peeing in sink, not OK.
