    Being 41, I remember a time when men didn't give a crap about using the urinal. In the 70's, there was no such thing as a urinal partition, now theyr'e everywhere. I don't like them cause I'm a germphobe, and I'm always afraid of bumping my elbows on them. Then these guys (almost always under 30) will come into a bathroom and literally go up close to the urinal and HUG the porcelain , actually touching it with their arms to make sure nobody sees their cock (This is in bathrooms with no paritions) what is their deal? I always figure they must be hung like a hamster and trying to hide it, but how GROSS is it to TOUCH the sides of the urinal with your arms? I wonder if their wives/girlfriends know they do that, and then come out and out their arms around them. It would be enough to make me run screaming into the night. I always stand as far as possible while still able to hit the urinal, why wouldn't one want to keep as much distance as possible from such a germ ridden thing? I noticed this started happening around 1990 or so, men not just coming up to the urinal, whipping out their cocks, and taking a piss. I LOVE the few places that are left that have those urinal troughs... these guys in their 20's come walking in and the look on their faces is PRICELESS, deer in the headlights for days, I just LMAO. I just think the partitions are stupid, another thing to collect germs, another thing to have to clean, another thing to make the construction of your store/facility more expensive, all because some small dicked man is scared another guy will see his penis? I'm CONVINCED a small dicked man invented those things.

    I'm guessing in a public bathroom, which is typically cleaned daily or more it's not as gross as you would think. However, psychologically, it is gross and I wouldn't do it. Your computer probably has more germs on it than a public urinal/toilet.

    For what it's worth, the last guy I dated didn't even like using urinals because of the back splash. Even in a public bathroom he'd go to a stall...everyone is different I suppose. And it might not have to do with size but shyness. I know I'm shy and I wouldn't want people to watch me pee. It's a vulnerable thing.

    I'm not shy. I once told a guy who was staring that for 5 bucks he could take a picture of it.

    I never thought about the partitions being dirty. Sometimes during a long piss I'll put one elbow on top of it and kind of lean. I always wash up afterward though. Did you know that fresh piss is actually sterile? It contains no germs. You could actually drink it with no ill effects.

    I think they were invented by a someone who had a good idea to make money by exploiting the public's prudish nature. There's always a market for that.

    I prefer peeing in a urinal and don't care if anyone's watching. i am a bit of an exhibitionist and definitely a nudist/naturist. I do take a discreet glance of other men at the urinal too. I like the troughs or urinal walls at stadiums. I avoid peeing in a toilet if a urinal is available. The diameter of my urethra is small so I don't produce a fire hose stream or sound unless I've consumed a pot of coffee or several beers. Am self conscious about that. One of the things that I really enjoy about this sight is the anonymity to freely discuss these issues and feelings. I've never talked with anyone about this before. Thanks guys!

    I'm not afraid of germs in the bathroom. Common microorganisms for which we have plenty of natural immunity, and the best defense, soap [usually] and water.

    It seems like most urinals used to be the floor length models where splatter mostly ended up on your shoes. Now they are mostly wall-mounted, so I suppose dividers also function as splash guards.

    I tend to give mine a couple of extra "floppy waves" when I know someone is watching. The only time I really have an issue is at the trough because I am much bigger than most everyone so that when a guy steps back I can't fit in his spot... it means that I stand back a bit to piss (pretty messy) or I have to exercise some patience!

    I hate those partitons too. I'm sort of an exhibitionist when it comes to urinating in public. I love not only unzipping but also love to unbuckle and just open my pants up so it hangs out. I came across a comment not too long ago where a guy was in the bathroom of a gay bar waiting to pee. One guy that was in line already had his pants opened and his cock out. An he said no one seemed to take notice of it.

    I agree about the backsplash, you just must aim right. Wall mounted urinals have a "sweet spot" where you get no backsplash. I prefer the floor type, though. I know your computer has more germs, BUT... they are MY germs. This is why people get 3 and 4 colds/flu a year. I haven't been sick in 2 years, I don't touch doorknobs, and I use my own pen when I have to sign something like a credit card slip or whatever. I'm aware of the urine being sterile thing... UNLESS the person has a UTI. And of course, there's always the occasional uncut man with head cheese for days. The urine may be sterile, but can get contaminated on it's way out the "door".

    The other day, in Barnes and Noble, when I walked into the bathroom, there was this guy standing so far away from the urinal you could totally see his whole dick.
    It made me feel a tad uncomfortable.

    I don't necessarily hide, but I don't want to flash people.

    I am definitely not a fan of those partitions. They always have some nasty bubbling / cracking paint or veneer on them from all the backsplash. Who has the duty of cleaning the partition walls....nobody. Even the stainless steel ones have permanent streaks.

    Urinals without backsplashes also scare me....because someone next to you with bad aim ends up spraying your legs and ??. Not cool since the urinal are placed pretty close together.

    Troughs though are great for unloading at a game but my god do they smell. Beyond the smell I would prefer the wide open spaces of a trough. I can't remember much of a backsplash in a trough either!

    I don't hide either but I'd prefer to use a tree than use this urinal :

    Remember waaaaay back when when the urinals sloped down to the ground? worse- when you would flush with this odd shooshing sound, if you weren't careful your dang shoes would get splashed... I am sure they used lots of water too.

    I have noticed there are fewer and fewer 'trough' style urinals even at large sporting events...

    what I CAN'T stand is bathrooms where the door opens from the inside so you have grab the handle... talk about germy...better yet, mens rooms with no doors...

    Vince, you made the comment, "Did you know that fresh piss is actually sterile? It contains no germs. You could actually drink it with no ill effects."
    ahem, that's only true if it's YOUR urine! Your own is not only sterile but antiseptic for you. Someone else's though is absolutely not good

    I don't take your precautions and I never get sick. Your immune system learns by exposure to pathogens. There is some good evidence that all the antibacterial soaps and alcohol hand wash can actually cause problems. And how many people would have head cheese for days nowadays? Strange worries.

    My college has some of them too. Basically they should at least have a flush function. >_<
