    This is actually a very good topic!
    Personally, I am glad to be a woman when it comes to public toilets. I like the privacy of my own little booth where I can hang my purse. And no one has to know my "business" in there.
    Unlike men. I mean, c'mon. Either they're whipping it out in front of everyone and peeing onto a ceramic floor, or they're strutting into the booth with the newspaper. Sorry, that is just TMI for me!

    Somewhat related to the I'd Hate To Be a Woman thread, there are times I really wish I could stand on the back deck and pee. Boys have it easier when we're travelling too - just pull the car over to the side of the road and in 15 seconds we're on our way again. Still, it's long enough for me to lament the anatomical differences that have me holding on until the next town...

      On a trip to visit one son, my wife other son and I came up on a horrific accident in the middle of nowhere.  Traffic was backed up for several miles and we sat there for some 4 hours, way past midnight.

      Son #2 and I walked into the darkness for relief, but poor wife had to sit there for the entire time.  Eventually the road was cleared and the police had asked a gas station about 30 miles down the road to re-open for the hundreds of cars waiting to move on.

      The line was long, but well worth it for my suffering wife as the next stop was over 100 miles further.

      The tribulations of defective plumbing are enormous... (takes off running for the border)

        Ha! It's happened to me before... but all the worse now for the fact that before I had children I could hold on for 500 miles. Hard not to have penis envy under the circumstances. ;-)

        Poor wife, it is not fair..... and the older you get and the more children you have the more problems females have, or so i am told......

    I dont know about any body else but I judge restuarants on how clean the bathroom is.
    If any body has any plumbing and heating questions don`t be scared to ask. Home improvment also , I love  to help out!!

      A clean bathroom in a restaurant is a must.  What I love are good restaurants with really nice bathrooms.  The one where it not only has the toilet but it's own sink inside a big stall.  It's like a bathroom suite!

    Back in Cuba we have no toilet paper, so... we use the newspaper. That's why we're such smart asses!

      My gran used to use the newspaper, cut into squares and strung on a string in the outside loo, instead of shop bought toilet paper. I used to get told off for reading it and taking up too much time when others wanted to use the toilet.  I was one smart arse kid and used to claim I was checking on my shares on the stock market.  My dad who was a staunch socialist used to go up the wall.  smile

    When you have layers of clothes on, and it's winter and it's freezing out, it doesn't matter what gender you are -- you're still peeling back the snow pants, the long johns, the second "skin" and finally (if you don't have more layers) you reach the real you.  lol Everyone has to hold it til they peel the layers back!  smile

    I used to wear two pairs of trousers to make my legs appear more muscular, and that meant not being able to enjoy the luxury of using a pissoir without being conspicuous.

    What an interesting thread this is!

    I have one bathroom in my tiny apartement, and never have very far to go, no matter which room I'm in. Well, apart from the kitchen and bathroom, there are only one and a half rooms, the half room being more like a large cupboard and is my bedroom with no room to add an ensuite ...

    Just when I think I'm over squatting, somebody just HAS to bring it up! smile  Back in '85, I lived in Beijing, China while studying for my Master's Degree.  I became quite adept at bending strangely in order to relieve myself, but sometimes, when I 'sat' in a roomful of women doing the same-or different!-thing became quite the nightmare! smile

      You mean in one room with the other women rather than a cubicle for yourself?

      I'm afraid I would have gone into retention, never been able to relieve myself with an audience present, LOL.  We only have one loo at the mo, whilst the upstairs floor is being built.  Having lived at Kergoric for 18 month, I've only just acquired a toilet roll holder.  I was so excited, it's the best thing that's happened to me in ages.  How sad. smile
