(Read a comment on my previous thread and it got me thinking)

I always lock the bathroom door, but I think that's just a habit because I lock it even when there's no one else in the house.

I would possibly wee in front of oh but never have done.

As for anything else - hell no.

He's pissed with me in the same room countless times but I draw the line at him having a shit whilst I'm brushing my teeth, or in the bath etc.

In a way I think it can almost kiss the romance.

No way! We wouldn't even fart in front of each other.

Haha yes or any bowel condition Red Panda! DH has seen things that cannot be unseen grin Luckily he realises that all humans shit and to be put off by it is just a bit odd.

When you have IBS all bets are off

Yes and yes. Vice versa also applies.

I don't care a bit about pissing in front of DP (or a close friend, come to that) and quite enjoy a bit of alfresco urination when out for a walk, but a poo is something that needs to be enjoyed in private imo.

The only time I've crapped in front of someone else was when I was married to my ex and had food poisoning (campylobacter). I could barely stand, couldn't walk unaided and was so weak and willocky that I doubt if I'd have been able to sit on the lav without support. My ex helped me to the bog several times, and stayed with me, which was probably the kindest thing he did throughout our 15 year marriage.

Its not generally the done thing @Limeansoda. Standard etiquette is to let people know that they are responding to the 6 years old concerns of the OP and that the thread has bizarrely been resurrected (probably by a poo troll).

He’s walked in on me peeing once by accident. And one other time when my son was just born (I can’t see remember the exact situation). But other than that, no

Can't we post on a zombie thread???

My ex husband used to have a poo when I was having a bath. We only had one toilet and it was in the bathroom. He reckoned he couldn't wait until I'd finished a bath.
Seeing his straining to have a poo face and hearing a poo splash into the bowl was really off putting, as well as the pong!

My DP wouldn't dream of going to the loo while I was there and I'm thankful for it!

BusySnipingOnCallOfDuty Sun 03-Mar-19 15:37:39

This a zombie?

However, the amount of times poor newbies post up a new post which has apparently been done to death.....

Which is it: ressurrect or repost?

StopMakingAFoolOutofMe Sun 03-Mar-19 15:13:55

I wonder why someone has restarted a six year old thread about pee and poo hmm

TheBlackDaliah Sun 03-Mar-19 14:52:21

MontStMichel grin at The Room Of Wonderment!!!
I am so stealing that, I haven't been able to use the loo on my own for 12 years.... What do kids think we are doing in there?!

KingMash Sun 03-Mar-19 14:46:29

I don't but wouldn't care about weeing. I've weed in bushes all over the place and in toilet cubicles with a friend on nights out. DP will wee if I'm there or with the door open if he can't be bothered to shut it.

Poo no. I love a good crap in peace.

MontStMichel Sun 03-Mar-19 14:37:14

Besides, if we so much as shut the bathroom door, we get scratch scratch at the (new) door! We always have a small audience, who are fascinated by the goings on in the Room of Wonderment!

Heatherjayne1972 Sun 03-Mar-19 14:26:22

Dear me no
That’s what locks on bathrooms are for

cyclecamper Sun 03-Mar-19 14:18:55

Yes. And vice versa. We don't really shut the bathroom door at all, never have done. When we both had to leave the house early, it was the most economical way to use the bathroom. In places with individual cubicles we go in together as well. I like the family facilities on some campsites so we can take our boy in together.

BetsyBigNose Sun 03-Mar-19 13:55:12

No chance! DH will have a pee if it's an emergency and I'm in the bath - but he'll pull the shower curtain across and sing loudly so I can't hear anything! grin I would prefer to wait - besides, it's good kegel exercise every once in a while!

DDs (10 & 11) come and go when I'm in the bath/on the loo.

Number 2's - never, not a chance, no thank you.

IAmMeThisIsI Sun 03-Mar-19 11:10:35

Pee in front of one another when needed. I've never pooped in front of him and he's never in front of me either. I think there has got to be some mystery left in our marriage. I will also pop a tampon in with him there if needed too. I just draw the line at pooping.

ChodeofChodeHall Sun 03-Mar-19 10:44:54

grin people can never understand each other on this subject, for some reason.

Damntheman Sun 03-Mar-19 10:36:51

Yes, both. It hasn't killed the romance in the slightest! I also don't get why people are so squeamish about basic bodily functions.

SerenDippitty Sun 03-Mar-19 09:19:42

Both. Not an issue.

Vulpine Sun 03-Mar-19 09:13:38

Apart from giving birth, no

Yes - can’t see the problem? We’ve been on safari with game drives at night. You have two choices - you squat down with all the other women (or men as the case may be) in the light from the tail lights of the vehicle; or you go into the bush to do it discreetly on your own, and risk bumping into a lion, hyena, name it? Everybody chose behind the vehicle! It really does concentrate the mind on your priorities, when death is the alternative?
