    Do you feel safe at using public toilets?

    Or do you feel insecurity like somebody might be watching you...?

    I thought you meant health wise. I don't think anyone is watching like a video if that's what you mean. My main concern is that they are clean.

    I don't have any problems using public washroom except when I saw personal and private residue on the toilet seat from previous over concerned users. I wish they had the manner and consideration to clean after themselves.

    That depends on the cleanliness of the facility.

    I exercise caution and determine whether it is safe or not.

    Here in the UK public toilets seemed to have disappeared & replaced if at all by 'space age' looking pay as you go cubicles, many people here mainly just go into a bar or pub if cut short I guess.

    I do have a problem using public washrooms but for the reason that I think they are not clean

    Actually, I don't, but I have used many in the past. I only try and use the ones that I trust.

    I don't feel safe using public toilets. It is because i am not sure if all the people who use them are healthy. It is a matter of hygiene. I am not anxious about somebody watching me, i use to control the surrounding first, if the room i'm in is safe. If i really have to make my business then i lined and cover the clo with toilet paper and i feel safer and comfortable.

    I am not too concerned about safety, unless of course the washroom happens to be in the middle of nowhere!

    But I do concern myself with how sanitary they are; I always keep a small bottle of hand sanitizer in my purse.

    I think public toilets are safe for the most part with regard to health. I touch as little of any surface as possible and make sure to wash my hands. It's actually the airborne particles from flushing that carry more dangerous bacteria.

    I assume that people are watching me even in the privacy of my own home.  It can be quite a funny game if you play it, and are able to keep it from getting away from you.  I'm more frightened by the cleanliness, or lack thereof in public toilets.

    If someone is watching that would be their problem, not mine. I have come to appreciate having a place to be able to relieve myself when I am away from home.

    You could always pick a bush, but you could also get arrested for indecent exposure.

    Hate public toilets! I touch as little of any surface as possible, using TP or paper towels to touch handles, etc. It is surprising how many people do not wash their hands! I am in and out as soon as I can. And yes, I've often wondered in retail stores and restaurants if there isn't some pervert camera somewhere, but when you gotta go, you gotta go!
