    If it’s just me and DH I’ll leave it open. If we have guests I close it. No big deal.

    Nope! Door closed. However, after dating for just a few months, my now DH was my date to a friend’s wedding. Long story short, things got a little bit crazy. Bless his heart, he somehow got me back to his house and upstairs of his (now our) bi-level house. At some point, I guess I went to use the bathroom, and he heard a huge thud. I fell down and hit my head on the edge of the bathtub. He came into the bathroom to find me knocked out with my panties around my ankles. And he still decided to keep dating me.  He was a keeper for sure!

    I wish! I have kids. Once your children learn to crawl you never pee alone. I actually haven’t peed alone for 28 years, and I grew up in a private household.

    It’s not that I don’t try. I’ve actually had my entire family stand in front of a closed bathroom door and serenade me, or hold long conversations shouting through it when I insisted the door remain closed. Nothing thwarts them.

    My SO never was private around me. Around others sure but not me. It took a long time for me to adopt that attitude (think him walking in on me constantly) and there are still some bathroom habits I have to go to my happy place and pretend I’m on a quiet mountaintop while doing what I need to do in a room full of people happily discussing whatever, brushing their teeth, hair, etc., while my skin crawls and my eyes are squeezed shut… you get the picture. It’s part of having a family I guess. 🙂

    At my parents house I pee with the door open nearly always. Habit from growing up there. Me and my sisters had our own bathroom and area of the house that my parents generally avoided — 4 girls sharing one bathroom with the same school schedule? There are ZERO privacy boundaries and locking the bathroom door is considered basically a cardinal sin.

    I have zero issues peeing in front of girls. I travel through Africa a lot and most bathrooms don’t have doors (or toilets for that matter…). I also hike a lot so peeing in the woods, no issue!Also grew up playing on very competitive sports teams, that breaks down boundaries REAL fast 🙂

    With Fiance we use the toilet with door closed. But we live in Europe so the toilet is always in it’s own room from the shower/bath area. I have practically zero issues with bodily functions (trust me, 2 years in Africa and a while in India…discussing your poop habits becomes breakfast conversation — I wish I was joking) but that doesn’t mean that I can’t have proper manners when expected of me 😀
