    Haha I have always wondered this!  I know when I need to go so I’m not trying to convince myself or force anything 😉

    haha according to many men, they’re either playing on their phones and not actually pooping the entire time, or after the initial ‘volley’ they have to wait for any aftershocks and that can take a long time. 

    I don’t even bring my phone with me. Why would you want to sit in poo smell while playing iPhone games if you don’t have to!?

    My Darling Husband takes his I-Pad into the washroom with him and he’s in there for over 20 mins, I think a lot of that time he’s just reading articles, he does this every morning! He takes an hour and a half to get ready for work and at least 20 mins it is sitting on the toilet!

    Hahaha….Darling Husband calls me a speed-pooper, too!  I checked a minute, but usually it’s less than that.  Unless I have a very angry belly, it doesn’t take me long.  I’d say it takes Darling Husband 5-10 minutes.

    LMAO @ this thread. I totally agree though! It takes me about 30 seconds once on the pot. My husband literally takes like 15-20 mins. WTF? I always ask what are you doing..well while I’m crapping I play games on my phone or read an article..umm..ok? lol I’m just like ok in there and outtt.

    Sadly, it takes me forever! So long in fact that if I’m at work and feel the pains, I get anxiety because I wonder how long I’ll be in the bathroom at work trying to take care of it. I try not to do it at work because of this and just walk around clenching my ass and letting out squeakers!!

    I think I have IBS with the chronic constipation. This shit has plagued me since I was a young kid. Ooooh well. I envy you speedy poopers!

    secretbee33:  “What are you doing that whole time? Sitting and waiting? Pushing?”

    Lol! All of the above! I have IBS & constipation issues, so sometimes I’m in and out in 15 seconds, other times I sit there for 20 minutes just waiting…waiting…and finally giving up, only to get the “urge” 2 minutes later and run back into the bathroom. Other times it really does take me 10 minutes to get everything out! It’s so unpredictable lol.
