Do you ever have difficulty peeing in public restrooms?
Maybe I have weird personal space issues but if I'm in a public restroom with lots of people I can't pee at the urinals. I umm freeze up and have to go into the stalls to pee.

1. Yes, and here is something that helps me
Think through multiplication tables, like for example, the 12 multiplication table or something not as easily calculated in your head. Takes your mind off it so you relax.

3. Yes,
Even though, according to Mrs. Beast Man, that I have nothing to be ashamed of down there, I just do. it's a mental block. I can pee pretty much anywhere if I'm drunk, though.

A guy in the next stall paying unwanted attention to a natural function.

I do have hopes of running for President someday. :D

On 2nd edit: I will say this, I did have a friend who would pee in broad daylight screaming "bullshit!" right next to the basketball court when he was drunk.

29. It's called "Pee Shy", and Pansy Division describes it well!
Lyrics:

He's a confident man
Relaxed and self-assured
But there's one situation
Makes him feel insecure
When he takes a public leak
He becomes all shy and meek
He just can't let it go
If another guy might be looking below

He's pee shy...

12. Not unusual at all. It is just a type of anxiety. See I will even reply
to a message about taking a piss just to get out of the 700 Club.

19. Great minds pee alike!
I cannot do it in public for the life of me! (And that goes for just about everything, including public speaking! But who public speaks in a restroom...?)

20. I never have any problems peeing in the women's restroom.
Of course, if I'm in there, I'm probably drunk enough that I'm just lucky not to be pissing my pants.

21. That reminds me of a very embarrasing moment
I remember one time in 6th grade I went into a bathroom and I was like where the hell are the stand up pissers? So I use the toilet in one of the stalls, I wash my hands and then I see two girls walking in. I'm thinking :wtf: they just laughed at me, I was still thinking :wtf: As I leave the bathroom I see I entered the ladies room.

24. You men DO have it rough...
WHY do they not give you all stalls like they do for us women? You guys have this entire "bathroom code of ethics" that just amazes hell outta me. Jeesh, I'd pee outside before I'd deal with some of that stuff, I swear!

My bigger issue is if I have to do.. um... that OTHER bodily function in public restrooms. THAT is not fun.

I'm almost ashamed to sign my name to this one...

30. No problem at all.
I guess it would be tougher if I was a man and had to pee in front of others. Pooping in a public restroom is pretty hard, though.

32. Yes!
Ok, first of all, I am a woman. I can't go to the bathroom with the knowledge someone can come into the bathroom or if someone's in the stall next to me. I hate it :(

33. Nowadays there are usually partitions or enough space between urinals
so I'm cool with that. When I was a kid in Texas, they often had the long trough thing with water constantly running through it, so you'd be peeing into the same urinal as everyone else, standing too close. Don't care much for that.

There's a guy where I work, he uses the urinal, but he always has to have the sink water running so he can go. Swear to god. Weird....

36. Yes, me too.. especially with people talking in the bathroom
I guess I just can concentrate and forget all about them. I keep thinking about how I am peeing with others all around me. If someone is talking, its very hard for me. Also too, the worst is if someone is waiting behind you for a turn at the urinal. That one totally freezes me up.
