    So i was at the gym the other day and i worked out, went for a shower after, and saw this guy pissing in the shower room, his shower wasn't on so i was positive that was happening. I was kinda shocked that someone would do that.....is it just me who finds that disgusting? Is there some unspoken gym edict im not aware of that says its ok to piss in the public showers? Thank god for shower shoes...lol

    Personally, I think peeing in any shower is gross. But a public shower is a definite no-no.

    The edict is DO NOT urinate in the shower!
    Other edicts are:
    Do not spit in the shower.
    Do not blow out your nose in the shower.
    Do not ejaculate in the shower.
    Do not leave your wet underwear in the shower.
    Do not leave dirty cooking pot in the shower..

    Touche. But have seen quite a few guys doing stuff like blowing nose or spitting and that too in open public showers. Its simply disgusting.

    I agree with the peeing, but spitting or nose blowing? Really? I blow my nose into my hands then wash it down the drain, is that bad? Can you catch something from it?

    some other viewpoints to consider.

    how about conserving water ?

    always aim your pee down the drain

    always wear flip flops in any public showers and gym.

    was told, that urine is one of the cleaner, no hiv, body fluids. [not into water sports myself, but many are into clean fun]

    is this a fem, vs masc thing?

    i heard this discussion on talk radio, and 7 out of 10 guys said they do pee in the shower.

    Well I tend to agree that peeing in a public shower is wrong. When it comes to your home though it's not such a bad thing. Unless you have a urinary tract infection urine is sterile and it also containes urea which is used in the treatment of athletes foot. I actually took a poll at work and was suprised to find that almost all of the guys I work with urinate in the shower in the morning and even some of the the women, lol.

    Nah I wouldn't mind at all, besides it gets drained anyway.

    There are a lot worse things than peeing in the showers lol.

    Yeah, that's a lack of common courtesy. I'm sure there's a guy just like that at my gym because occasionally, i'll walk into a shower cubicle and it smells like a urinal. icon_eek.gif I have to switch to another one much further away!

    I'm actually quite shocked that this bothers so many of you guys. Are you only referring to public showers or is it your own shower at home too?

    Pissing and spitting's fine with me, but anything else like blowing your nose, masturbating, is a bit gross.

    If you think pissing's bad, surely wouldn't you think that showers are too with everyone washing their dirt, sweat, fluids and perhaps fecal matter?

    I have a friend who urinates in a sink when he's out in public.... if the bathroom looks too unclean. I think its a little weird. I think I'd rather have somebody pee in a public gym shower than in a sink I'm about to use to wash my hands!

    Gbob,
    Public showers.

    Yes people are washing their body but that's different than excreting material from the body into the shower area.

    I guess it comes down to a matter of opinion. But personally I would find a dirty guy showering more disgusting than someone peeing.

    Do you also find it gross when there are pubes and body hair stuck in the drains?

    The act of urinating isn't what's in question here, the sterility of urine isn't is question either, would you walk bare foot through a puddle of piss? Most wouldn't.

    Pissing in ANY shower is an absolute no for me, anything else (blowing nose, spitting, masturbating, etc.) goes, not that I normally do it. My issue with that is it leaves bad smell and the thought of doing it is disgusting.

    As long as you have a condom on, it is considered safe.

    I seem to remember hearing/reading that some groups of Eskimos use urine to clean their dishes when fuel to melt snow is scarce.

    This is the exact reason that I turn the water on as hot as I can and let it run for a minute before getting in the shower at the gym. It might not do much, but...makes me feel slightly better about it.

    I wouldn't piss in the shower at the gym but I do it at home all the time. In fact I sometimes piss in the kitchen sink if I'm down stairs and don't feel like walking up the stairs to the bathroom.
