    Because they can?

    As I missing something here? Is it like a dog marking his turf before he pees?

    I have never understood the concept of this.

    Enlighten me!

    this makes me straight? icon_eek.gif

    I have done this in the gym after a run on the tread mill, and opted to spit in the urinal/toliet because the jogging cleared my lungs and I need to clear that from my throat - and I was inside.


    uh, why do some men spit in sinks?
    Please, (do) aim for the toliet or the ground outside when spittin

    ok bodywork fair enough. I have amended the name of this post from---

    "Why do straight guys spit in urinals?"

    To:

    Why do guys spit in urinals?""

    ...and I get the idea of a guy clearing his throat after his run...

    (though I probably would have thought you were straight when you blew out your lungee)


    But outside of the gym I have seen all kinds of guys all over the place spitting their hearts out....just seems gross to me.

    Where would you have them spit? If someone needs to spit for any reason, would you not rather have them do it there or in a water fountain, on the floor or shower area? Seems polite that they do it in there versus some other place.

    because the urinal is a much better alternative. its a great way to rid yourself of mucus. if you have to spit, i personally go for toilet or urinal. the dumb bastards are the ones who spit off the side of the track while their running upstairs. i mean. are you FREAKING KIDDING? cuz that magically disappears overnight *angry face*

    Oh man... I know I read this somewhere, damn I'm having a total brain fart right now.

    Ok so from what I read, supposedly guys who do this do it in order to begin the peeing process. Apparently, spitting helps somehow... sorta like thinking about waterfalls or a running water faucet. It's supposed to trigger something in the brain and you just GO icon_eek.gif ... you know?!? Well that was my two cents... carry on!

    I don't see anything wrong with it. What annoys me is when guys spit their gum into the urinal. Gum doesn't flush down and someone is going to have to take it out later. My biggest pet peeves are always when people do things without thinking about how their actions affect others.

    Because they didn't swallow in the stall.

    HA!

    Thank you! WTF is up with that? Seriously!? You couldn't have waited till you washed your hands and were near a garbage can? Seriously!? Come to think of it...maybe it's the same people who don't wash their hands that spit their gum out in the urinal...icon_question.gif

    icon_biggrin.gifhaha this is funny I never thought about it, but I do tend to spit in the urinal or toilet when I am taking a leak. I guess its a habit, but I have no idea where I got it from; and I do not spit outside. So I guess its because I feel like it or ir helps me focus on the task at hand. This post was amended to "Why do straight guys spit..." and I am not straight so maybe we are searching the wrong population for the answer.icon_rolleyes.gif

    It is a technique to overcome nervous bladder or the inability to pee in public.
    You can condition yourself by consciously spitting every time you have to take a leak. Then when you are in public and spit the pee flow happens as a conditioned response.

    Just taking this a little farther:

    At my former place of work, there were federal courts on the next floor, and at least one of the old judges would frequent the men's room on my floor -- you could hear him clearing out every orifice while he was in the stall -- truly! Blowing his nose, hacking up sputum, coughing, peeing, taking a dump/farting (well, I couldn't hear him cleaning his ears out, I guess...)

    Very unappealing noises!


    (but back to the original question -- yeah, better to spit into the urinals than on the floor.

    In Italy, there used to be signs in public places: "La persona civile non sputa" ("a civilized/polite person doesn't spit") which is what I always thought, too!

    I absolutely agree. Spitting in sinks is pretty disgusting....and spitting in water fountains is at the top of the disgusting list.

    I don't see any issue in spitting in urinals or toilets. They are for waste.

    Why do people spit? Especially on the sidewalk. I find it unhygenic. Stop it now, please.

    I'm reminded of a trick who was into spitting on guys. I'm assuming he was into spitting on guys because he certainly enjoyed spitting on me.

    The first time he did it, I was a bit preoccupied and ignored it. The second time, I got to thinking that the first time wasn't a mistake at all. By the third time ... there are ladies present, so I won't repeat what I said to him, but it wasn't pretty. He was out on his ass, standing in the hallway with his clothes in his arms, being all apologetic. I'm sure the neighbors got a kick out of it.

    I still cringe thinking about it.
