Why does the need to urinate seem to intensify as soon as you are trying to unlock your front door?
I think it is because, it is the realization that once you get inside, the safety and comfort of our home allows us to relax and let our gaurd down.
You are home. Your body knows this. You're starting to shed the tension from the outside that makes you "hold it in".
I think it's just the thought of being comfortable. Our entire bodies relax, including our bladders.
It can be a pavlovian reflex, you know that the goal to free yourself from this uncomfortable condition is getting closer in space, you might think the toilet is waiting for you with open hands, or again, the goal to fulfill your physiological needs (in this case to empty your urinary bladder) is really close, thus generating an additional excitement in the pontine micturition center inside your brainstem, that regulates detrusor muscle in order to clear out the bladder.
maybe because the brain is sending signals to the bladder telling it the we are almost there
I agree with all these answers - but it's not just about people. Being safe to urinate is a big issue for any animal. Urinating in unknown territory is risky - a predator might come and eat you. So we have deep unconscious control mechanisms that say "don't urinate" (blocking the sensation we need to), and "now it's safe to urinate" (urgency), and we share these with all animals. If we come close to a place where we know it is safe to urinate, then our body says, "time to go!"
