Are you a shy pooper?

Like Tree158Likes

To some extent, yes, I'm a shy pooper. I hate the idea of other people being able to hear it. But if I have to go, I'll poop in a public bathroom. It's just a part of life, you know? I'm at school for long periods of time during the week, so sometimes you don't have a choice.

I often find myself talking about poop with my friends, though. So I'm not at all shy about talking about it.

I do apparently suffer from "Safe Poop Syndrome", as my friend dubbed it. We were away on a trip this summer, and I couldn't go the whole week. The same thing happened a few weekends ago while on a trip. I just couldn't. Then literally the second I stepped inside my house, my stomach was like "time to go!" So of course I texted her right then and there and updated her on the state of my pooping affairs. You know. Like ya do.

I have never farted in front of a boyfriend - ever. I didn't fart in front of my husband until I was pregnant, then it I just let loose into an all out fart fest.

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.

The first time he indicated anything was when we checked into a hotel(it was a month into dating) and he told me to go away from the door and it was obvious he had to go. Ever since then we are open about it and tell each other not to go in after we go. Once I forgot to tell him in the morning and he went in. OMG I was mortified and he said yea it smelled nasty lol. I go 1-3 times a day and usually tell him about it. At one point he was competing with me, who went more and first. I'm so glad he is not disgusted by pooptalk. And I definitely go in public places if I need to. I feel much better afterwards.
Every time we travel I get so messed up, it's like my stomach goes into protest mode and wants to make what should be a pleasant road trip into misery city. When we were getting ready for our move and I knew a whole week of driving would be ahead of us I was so worried, every time I was actually able to go it was like Mr. Spring and I rejoiced for my bowels. So gross.

I used to be super shy about it because I have a lot of stomach issues (which have gotten better with age, thank mercy), but at some point with Mr. Spring I just explained my issues to him and it was no longer a big deal (to me, he doesn't care). I still don't want him hearing me and definitely don't want him in there with me, some things just need to be left private. We've been together almost 20 years and he's only heard me fart maybe twice? It's sort of a joke between us now because he does it freely and thinks it's hilarious and I always threaten that I'm going to "unleash the beast" after all these years and he responds "NOOOOOOOO!!!!". One day, one day... I shall enact my revenge.

And this concludes more than anyone ever wanted to know about my bathroom habits.

iroc, I was thinking of that story reading this thread, but couldn't remember who that happened to. So gross.

I've decided that I'll never get down to my original weight, and I'm OK with that--After all, 8 pounds 2 oz. is just not realistic.
It was me. Yuck.


Bf and I are very much into discussing our affairs. We're extremely, maybe a little too, open that way. He's borderline obsessive about his bowels and need for regularity. I know a little too much about his pooping habits. That has made me more open discussing it a anyway.

I am shy about it, though I've gotten better over the years. I can go in a public bathroom if I'm the only one there (i.e., single stall or no one else is around). I am generally very fast though--no way do I want someone walking in as I do my business! At work/school, I identify the least-trafficked bathrooms and use them when necessary.

My older son is a shy pooper too. He must have inherited that from me. He only does it at home unless he absolutely can't wait. For the past year he's been in kindergarten and the previous years of babysitter/preschool, I think he's only pooped there maybe one time.

The younger son, on the other hand, is not shy at all. He'll go in public bathrooms and shout out to me when he's done, "Mommy, can you wipe my booty?"
Talking about poop and farts is great! It might be about some stinky encounter, having to make a run for it after a big meal, my sister's lack of pooping for days on end when she was a kid, the dog eating at The Litterbox Buffet, etc.
Like my sister and I say - A day without poop talk is like a day without sunshine.

Let me add: I have no problem talking about poop, in probably too much detail. I just don't want anyone to hear me doing it!
I was in Japan for work last month and they have some pretty fancy toilets in hotels and office buildings. In our corporate building there, the toilets made a recorded burbling sound when you sat down, that (I assume) was intended to cover up the sound of anything you were doing.

There was also a lengthy row of pushbuttons, most of which I never figured out, but other than the flush, there were buttons that spritzed your nethers like a bidet, and then blew warm air onto you. I was a bit afraid to try any more buttons.

Now, in the hotel there was a heated toilet seat. That I could really get used to.

Oh man, I've always wanted a heated seat!!!

I feel inclined to tell the story about the last time I went to Disneyland. It was about 11 years ago and I was in high school. I had tried to clear my system at the hotel before I went to the park for the day, but I just couldn't get anything out. Less than an hour into our day at Disneyland I knew I was in trouble. I tried to go in one of the restrooms. I don't know if any of you have done Disneyland in August, but the bathrooms are crowded. There should have been a huge sense of anonymity, right? My body didn't care. I couldn't do it. So I waited. There was no going back to the hotel until after the night time shows. I tried four more times throughout the day and couldn't go. I just don't do popping in public bathrooms. I try, but I psych myself out. Every time. 13 torturous hours later, I returned to the hotel and didn't hesitate to clear my system.

So yes, I'd say I'm a shy pooper. At least in public. Now, if I'm having tummy issues where the poop isn't solid, I can go in public if the only other option is soiling my britches. But under normal bowel situations, public isn't happening.

I have no issues at home, though. Two weeks into my relationship with my boyfriend (and soulmate), I was popping in his bathroom in his small place no problem. I sprayed the crap out of the bathroom with air freshener, but I do that anyway because I don't like smelling it myself lol.

Also, I have zero issues talking about poop. But yes, I'm a shy pooper.

This thread prompted a conversation with my BFF last night and come to find out in her relationship they're not adverse to being in the same room while taking care of business.

I told her I still think it's gross, no matter how much I love her.

Yesterday Mr. Spring surprised me with a couple of goodies from the cupcake place and after the conversation with my BFF she said "Hmm, maybe that's why he (her husband) doesn't surprise me with sweets..." SEE! Stop pooping in front of your SO! hahaha

Ya, how are you going to stay sexy when the other person has seen you shatting. There's no going back from that.


I also keep private, putting lotion or powder on my full body, clipping my nose hairs, removing my femstache, plucking my eyebrows, any type of hair removal, dying my hair - I dont have strict rules or anything, but if I do any of this stuff I do it in my own private time.

Unless the bathroom is disgustingly dirty, public or private, one must do what one must do. Those who are shy, are you equally as shy when it comes to your period and its associated accoutrements?

I dont care if someone sees me with a tampon, or buying tampons, but I would never change one in front of anyone or anything like that.

And I don't discuss my period stuff too much other than that I have it or the pain in my ovaries.
