Or lake? Or river? Or whatever other large body of water may exist?
Our local radio show was talking about it this morning. One host claims that everyone pees in the ocean but the other swore up and down that she hasn’t done it since she was a kid. She feels that it’s disrespectful to those around her while the other host said that he doesn’t see the issue. So, I’m curious… Are you an ocean/lake/river pee’er or do you think its wrong?
I’ll be the first to admit that I pee in the ocean if I have to go. If I’m at the beach and the alternative is to hike a half a mile to a porta potty or some public restroom, the ocean it is. I won’t do it if I’m right next to someone but I’ll swim away and handle my business. I figure there’s so much nasty shit in the ocean so a little extra sumthin’ sumthin’ isn’t that big of a deal. The water is constantly moving so it’s not like it’s staying in one place forever.
What about you?

if i have to i only go into the water to about right below the pee-er. lol… i was told a stroy that freaked me out once that when you pee in water, your body will suck up a bit of the water your in… and lakes, rivers..oceans are all bacteria ridden…and i dont want any of that going up into my bladder

I voted all the time. I don’t even mean in emergency situations, either… If I feel the slightest inkling I’m over the side of the boat or in the water taking a pee.

The ocean is okay, but not freshwater. You can get some savage infections that way!! Not that I haven’t done it, but I try not to. I also try not to pee ON anyone in the ocean, though, haha.

@graygodess20: I’ve heard that too but I don’t know how true it is. As someones who’s probably pee’d in the ocean hundreds of time, I’ve never had any parasites or bacteria find their way into my system. I’m not saying that it can’t happen but who knows.

yep. i figure the salt in the ocean is strong enough to kill the toxins.

When I was much younger I read about the Amazonian Needlefish and, even though I’m about as far from the Amazon as you can get, I’ve always been terrified of some small fishy thing swimming into me when peeing.
Having said that, though, I’ll go if I absolutely have to. Sometimes walking 500 metres is more difficult than the consequences of having a needlefish in your vagina!

LOL. Of course I do. And I think anyone who says they don’t is lying.
Not really. But come on! We all do it!

in the ocean yes, in a swimming pool never
@LadyElva: im glad im not the only one who thinks of that fish!!! even when im the other side of the world. i saw a documentary which showed a picture of how it got lodged in a mans penis by swimming up the pee stream, and even though im a woman it pretty much traumatised me.

If municipalities can dump trash in the ocean, why should I feel bad about peeing in it? Pee is a lot more natural than plastic bags, discarded paper products, and chemicals.

How can that fish get in your privates when peeing if you have a swim suit on?

It’s really hard for me to do it (in the ocean! I would never try in a swimming pool!). I think I’ve managed once successfully, while snorkeling. It’s like I have a physiological block….? The pee is like, nope won’t do it. When we got certified to scuba dive we were told that people pee in their wetsuits all the time. Oh my god, I would sooner explode. At least a bathing suit bottom can be scooted to the side…
