Are you a shy pooper?

Like Tree158Likes

wow, what a topic.
To be honest this is one of the bodily functions that totally grosses me out and I've done some work in the operating room when I was doing my rotations so I thought I had a pretty tough stomach after all the things I encountered.
I don't usually even talk about this but I thought what the heck. I don't like knowing about other people's bathroom business and I don't like people in there while I am. My husband and I do not come into the bathroom with each other during that time and he knows where I stand on this. Some things should just remain private.
I also do not #2 in public bathrooms, EVER! I don't know how I have managed this but I just can't. It is more the cleanliness issue since I detest public restrooms and will only go in if I have to, and even then I try to pee from across the room if possible (slight exaggeration) but what I mean is I am not going any closer to that toilet than I have to because I do not trust that the cleaners did a well enough job.
I don't even know how people can sit on the seat! and one time I saw a woman bring a hot dog into the stall with her... ugh

The people who don't sit on the seat are the slobs. They piss everywhere. Your (gy) ass isn't precious gold. Sit down.

I run the tap at work as the toilets are next to the office and the walls are like cardboard, but other than that I'm not too fussed. Everyone does it, why be embarrassed? Not that I'd have anyone actually in a toilet with me, but in a stall, public loo etc. I really don't care. I don't know if it comes from being a nurse and dealing with bodily functions at work that I don't care.

Place a couple of strips of toilet paper onto the surface of the water for excellent noise reduction. I would post that advice in the bathrooms at work if I could.

People are really gross and I secretly believe the people who don't sit are the ones that always POOP EXPLODE THE BATHROOMS AND LEAVE AND you walk past the stall like WTF. JESUS GOD LAWD NO. WTF.

Like who does that??? How does one live with themselves after doing that???

IT'S DISGUSTING.

I do even know someone who admitted doing that, but she was 10 when she poop exploded the bathroom.

What is poop exploded?

I mean you squat and poop and get poop every where because you are gross, and then you leave and don't even try to clean it up.

No one here will admit it but I know you know that you do it, so don't even lie.

Or people who poop and don't flush, really? It must make them feel satisfied knowing they left a visual gift for everyone.

People be so weird.
If someone can hear it yes. Other than that no. And I love detailed poop talk. Especially after a good one!
I'm fairly sure I've told this story before:

About 7 years ago, we were living in a house and rented an upstairs apartment. I was pregnant and my ex (then husband) came home to show the apartment to a family. After they were done he left them to finish discussing it and ran out to do a quick errand - he told me they were probably on their way out, which they were. They left a few minutes later.

It was Halloween so I was going through the shared front hallway for trick or treaters. There was a smell of death that kept getting stronger. Then it started to creep into my house. I was like omg, what died? When I couldn't take it anymore I went upstairs to check.

Yes the smell got worse as I walked through the apartment until I came upon the worst bathroom scene ever. Poop exploded all over the seat, the back of the toilet, the walls - everywhere. I dont know how I didn't puke.

I don't know how someone does that.

I am not at all modest and would walk around half naked in the summer if it were allowed. But there are a few things I prefer to do alone - pooping, changing tampons, throwing up, etc.
I will do those things in a pubic restroom or anywhere else as long as there is a door/stall/separation of some sort. I always close my bathroom door if anyone is in the house. My parents, stepkids, husband/boyfriend don't need to be in there with me. Ever.

Having kids cured me of any poop shyness. There's nothing quite like trying to go with a two year old yelling under the door, "What doin', mama? You pooping?"

I'm not a shy pooper. When you gotta go, you gotta go. MoppyT's advice of putting paper in the toilet bowl first is gold!

I would probably like to be a shy pooper in theory, but my digestive system is way too regular and active for that. Regular and active to the point that I clogged my boyfriend's toilet the other weekend (and he was a total champ about it; I love that man). I blame the "flushable" wipes.

My poor sister when I told her that had just been said in front of my office

Just trying to imagine what kefur tastes like scares the poop out of me. Apparently actually drinking it scares the poop out of those who do drink kefur.

It's not the smell of pooping that bothers me as much as the soundtrack

When my dd was in pre-school they had this little book that they worked on throughout the year and gave it to the parents at the end of school. The teacher would interview the kids and write down EXACTLY what the kids said.

Well on the section titled 'My Mom' they must have asked what does your mom like to eat, drink, do, look like etc. dd said 'my mom likes to eat pasta with gravy and drink water. She likes to poop. She has brown hair..'

If I didn't laugh so hard I would have been mortified. I had to tell the teacher that there are other things I like to do.

I will only poop in a public place if the alternative is to poop in my pants. At that point I don't care what it sounds like, I'm desperate. If I can hold it though, I'll be uncomfortable all day before I go in public.

If you got nothing to bring to the table - don't even bother sitting down.
I'm only shy if I'm in a friends house or the bathroom is inside our office space...situations where people who know you will know it was you. I'm okay with public bathrooms or using the bathroom in my workplace that is in the outside corridor.


I'm curious as to how you all handle pooping when you start dating someone and spending time in each other's hosues.
I have been a shy pooper my whole life. When I was a kid I barely could pee at school let alone poop. I am anal(ha!) about having silence when I go and cannot go if other people are around, even my own husband (unless of course it's an emergency). He jokes that I sh*t like a cat.

Wait. I still do that stuff.

I was with my ex for 8 years, married for 6, pregnant twice, and I never farted in front of him.

I won't even pee in front of boyfriend.

I don't understand how girls need a friend to 'hold their hair back' while they throw up - in fact, I'd like to be left alone for all bathroom things

How can you manage to be with someone for 8 years and never farted in from of them?

this reminds me of a friend who husband wish she didnt fart in front of him. she clears the room!

i dont mind peeing in front of people such as sister, mom, bff. but i cant poop with someone in the bathroom. wehn i have to throw up, i dont care who is around! i'm sick daggit! i rather someone be around just in case i pass out. that has happened before and i woke up on the floor with my dog licking my face and the vomit.
I just will not fart in front of anyone. I think my body is physically incapable now.

I wish I could! But I hate farts. Bf farts all the time. Sometimes theyre deadly. I can't bring myself to retaliate.

I need a farting intervention.
