  • poll: Do you have an "open door" bathroom policy?

    We have a totally open door policy - anything goes!

    We have a completely closed door policy! E-yuck!

    We will pee in front of each other but THAT'S IT!

    He will pee in front of me, but I will NOT in front of him

    I will pee in front of him, but he will NOT in front of me

    He will do anything in front of me, but I will NOT in front of him

    Closed door policy.

    No one looks attractive sitting on the toilet. I dont want to see him doing it or him see me.

    This is so hilarious!  We have zero shame.  Door is opened all the time, for everything.

    @melisandescott:  +1 We are completely open door people. If he ever locks the door randomly and I try and come in, it weirds me out. “

    Since I’ve gone to nursing school, he makes comments about how I can practice wiping his butt. Lol. We haven’t gone that far though….

    I will do anything in front of him but he wont #2 in front of me. When he had his own apt the bathroom had only a toilet in a little room so we never closed the door

    We’ll pee in front of each other, but I only do when it’s an EMERGENCY and he also needs to use the restroom. Or if he’s in the shower. He doesn’t really care.

    Our policy is ew, keep that, all of it, behind a closed door. Neither of us do ANY of that stuff in front of each other, we even avoid doing certain personal grooming in front of the other – neither of us shave or trim in front of the other (him his face, me my legs/pits/ladyparts/etc.) I dont even like to talk through the door if one of us is peeing/pooping. (It has to happen sometimes, I’m not traumatized, but I prefer to wait if reasonable.)

    We’re a very open couple with most things, we even TALK about those activities when relevant (an illness or problem, etc.), I just don’t feel the need for us to see each other at it… For me, I’m a naturally private person to start with and I want to maintain some glamour/mystery with him. For him, he grew up in a huge household, the bathroom was the only place he could get a moment’s peace or privacy, so keeping the door shut is automatic.

    I don’t judge people who poo with the door open… I just wonder how they do it! I don’t think I could relax haha.

    @MrsPanda99:  We will urinate with the other in the same room, but we will not do anything else. I really can not hold it (kidney issues) and if he is there taking a lot of time showering or anything else he knows I have to just come in. And if there is a time, like Sunday mornings, when we are both getting ready and I am taking a lot of time fixing my hair and makeup he will come in.

    However, I would never do the other in front of him. Now he has asked me, as I have asked him, when we did not pay attention to how much was left ont he roll to bring a new in. That is it though. He even asks me before he goes to do anything else if I need to go in there because he knows how he usually makes it smell and that he spends way too much time playing Angry Birds on his phone (LOL!) and that I do not really like going in the kids bathroom, it is a little small.

    Nope, door is closed when I’m in there.  Same with him.  I do know it takes him for-freakin-ever to poop… long enough for him to take his iPad in with him to play games.

    @MrsPanda99:  I can’t vote, we will do anything, but #2. Showering, peeing, joint teeth brushing are all fine by us.
