    Hell yeah, I pee in the ocean, everyone does.  🙂  It’s too long a walk back to wherever and when ya gotta go, ya gotta go.

    I’m perfectly capable of holding it until I get to the bathroom in any other situation, I’m not about to start pissing myself just because I’m in the water.

    I’ve never been to an ocean before (bucket list!), but I have peed ONCE in a lake.  It was a few years ago and I reaaaaally had to go.  I felt so weird about it the whole time and I doubt I’ll do it again.

    I have odd bathroom issues though, so I assume that’s why I wasn’t a huge fan of it.  All I could think about was how I was currently swimming in my pee water.  😛

    No…I heard it attracts sharks.  I have no idea if this is true or not, but I’m not taking my chances 🙂

    I’ve done it. 

    This reminds me of a saying from wastewater treatment classes (also general air/land/water pollution discussions – I’m a civil engineer)

    “The solution to pollution is dilution.”

    This is so funny the topic came up now…last weekend I was at the beach with my friend and had to go SO BAD but we happened to plop our stuff down really far from the bathrooms (which are GROSS)…I literally haven’t peed in any kind of water since I was about 5, and the thought totally creeps me out, but I had to go so bad that I did it! I called Fiance to brag about being brave enough! lol

    All the time – in fact, if I’m laying out on the beach or on a boat, I will go into the water specifically to pee. 🙂

    I voted that I’ll go out of my way to pee in the ocean. Mind you, I make sure that no one else is around.

    I don’t recall where I heard this or if it’s true or not but it’s stuck with me; that every drop of water on the plant has been through a living organism at least once.

    Mi agua es su agua!

    I would pee in the ocean…but I physically can’t! Darling Husband and I were at a beach once where you had to pay to use the bathrooms, and I kept having to pee and I just couldn’t do it without sitting down on a toilet

    i wouldnt say i go out of my way to pee in the ocean, but if im in the water and the need arises… so be it.

    i would never pee in a pool, but i have no qualms about peeing in the ocean or large lake. as long as there a reasonable buffer space between you and other swimmers, it’s all good.

    @finnaroo:  That’s what happened to me!  I had to somehow hang off the boat to squat above the water to start off because I seriously could.not.pee while swimming around.  Imagine trying to do that without getting weird looks!  Hahaha

    Um, YES! I have to pee a lot as it is, but add to that being at the beach and drinking a lot of water (I always drink a lot when I’m outside so I don’t get dehydrated) I can have to pee like– every hour. If it takes 15 min to walk back to my beach house do I really want ot make a 30 min round trip every hour? Hell no.

    I usually think that it’s disgusting though I know very many people who do it just to do it. However, on our anniversary trip to Miami, I had an urgent need to pee (Thanks, pregnancy!) while in the ocean, so I had to. My hubby laughed it off, but eh, It was an emergency. 🙂

    @GFerg:  i think its because its really really little – and most bathing suits (especially for men) are loose enough that it can get in
