    When so many men approach a toilet or public men's room urinal they often spit into it before urinating. Why do we do this?

    Do women do this before sitting on the toilet?

    :cool:

    I'm nasty. I do it sometimes. I'm a smoker. lol

    You said urinal and it reminded me of this. :)

    "What's a urinal?"

    "A wall toilet for peeing in."

    I've never seen anybody do this, but I wouldn't personally regardless - toilet air particles could get into my mouth, noooo!

    Do you keep your mouth perfectly shut around all toilet facilities?

    I was told this really ferocious story recently, about a gentleman who was completely celibate but contracted (I think it was gonorrhea?) an STD. He told his doctor that he hadn't had sex in over a year, but owned a fleshlight and used it in the shower almost everyday. Needless to say, he hadn't cleaned his shower in awhile.

    I spit while I'm peeing if I'm out drinking. Don't know why....guess I'm a spitter, not a swallower...!

    It's weird isn't it? I was at an airport men's room and saw like 4 guys come up to the urinal and spit b4 they pee'd. Why do we do it?!?!? I NEED TO KNOW!!!! Good to hear women do it too!

    what's with people who don't flush the urinal (where they aren't automatic)

    nothing worse than coming up to the urinal and getting a whiff of old urine vapor.

    People who don't flush in public restrooms should be Tasered.

    It's an expectorant thing. You wouldn't understand. Ok, that's bad and I'm stoned. Any way I think it's just a mental thing, getting everything you can out of your body. I spit during stream though and I've seen other do that too. I do it when I'm standing up cuming too. It just a release I have to have. Funny story though. I was checking out a guy at the urinal the other day and was just about to do the said spitting when he beats me too it. But it was too late, I still had to it was all ready. Then I felt like he thought I was doing it just because he was. Daddy, I want to be a big boy, too.

    :confused:

    Unless you also hold your breath, cover all mucous membranes with impermeable barriers and close your eyes then closing your mouth is futile as a risk reduction strategy. Besides, in the shower you could get soap in your eyes, fumble then slip and break your neck! Sounds more plausible than catching bugs with an open mouth in the loo!!

    People's perceptions of risk are so funny.:rolleyes:

    Just teasing....:smile:

    OCD! The strange part is that I'm a very logical, analytical person. I understand, but I can't help it. :redface:

    I don't or have I ever spit in a urinal. Not getting my mouth close enough or my nose. They usually stink. I can't even remember the last time I spit on the ground. Go figure.

    Awesome...psychology in the wild is utterly fascinating.

    I was going to answer that I don't spit until I read Quercusone's response and it made me think about it: I'm the same way. I tend to spit when I'm drinking, particularly liquor.

    As for what others do, I don't pay attention to people in the pissoir. I'm there to splatter the bladder and nothing else.

    Who knows, maybe men have more phlegm? I don't often spit. If I do it's because of dust, sinus drainage or a bad taste in my mouth.
