    Ew no no no. I’ll pee if he’s in the shower (we only have one bathroom, and I’ll go in there usually only if I can’t hold it until he gets out) but never in front of him If that makes sense? Haha and def never in front of guests

    Some things are better kept private.

    I usually close it.  I had a roommate who peed with the door open though, so it doesn’t really phase me, and if I’m with very specific girlfriends (and when alcohol may or may not be involved…) I don’t mind going if the door is open.  But I like to keep some mystery alive between my husband and I!  🙂

    With my fiance -door open, heck I’ll pee while he’s in there brushing his teeth (and he does the same). Tthis stemmed from necessity as we only have one bathroom and both get up and get ready at the same time.

    With anyone else, door closed.

    Never.  And I actually turn the water on so he can’t hear me….even in the middle of the night.  We are pretty private about any bodily functions….I’ve heard him fart MAYBE 5 times and I will laugh and call him out on it…and he DENIES IT.  Which makes me laugh even harder.

    I pee with the door open at my parents house, my BFFs house and at both FI and I’s houses. I guess we’re just open people, my family all pee with the door open too. I don’t think it’s gross at all, it’s just a normal bodily function. My BFF shared a tiny dorm room, two twin beds with about 4 feet in between. After a year of that peeing in front of eachother is no big deal. And FI and I just aren’t the type of people who are worried about mystery, we’re both human and aren’t worried about keeping anything private. He likes to come into the bathroom and chat with me, regardless of what I’m doing, and I don’t mind one bit, and will do the same with him. It’s definitely a comfort level thing, although for me it’s more about the comfort level of the people around me, I only leave the door open with my BFF because I know it doesn’t make her uncomfortable. I would be fine with the door open with any of my friends, but I’m not sure if they’d be comfortable with it so I err on the side of caution.

    I pee with the door open whenever I feel like it with FI around…sometimes I feel like closing the door, whatever. I have friends who I’m comfortable with and we can share a restroom in public or at home, but they are the few friends who I’ve known since we were young girls.

    Lol I was really close with my friends and college roomies…. I guess I lost the care for peeing privacy, I just don’t care if the door is open.

    DH and I always leave the door open at home. We will do anything in front of the other, there is no mystery in our relationship and it doesn’t bother us. It hasn’t killed the romance at all.

    a_day_at_the_fair:  Nope. It’s not about embarassment or discomfort. I’ve gone on hitchiking holidays where the only option can be peeing by the side of the road and you just risk that cars are coming. It’s more like, we share everything else. We both deserve privacy in this area. Sharing “everything” doesn’t mean you’re any closer.

    Both FI and I have sometimes left it open when pee but that’s it. It’s just a thing – I did it initially to train him to put the toilet seat down when he was done – that if he didn’t I would pee with the door open. Now it’s just if it happens it happens but we don’t purposely do or think about it. But that’s just with him and I everywhere and everyone else is closed.

    I’ve peed when people have been in the same bathroom as me, so having the door open certainly isn’t an issue. I really don’t care when it’s in front of DH or my three best friends. Except for those few, I’d close the door always.
