Oh, boy! Growing up with two older brothers, I was jealous and resentful that they got to pee in the snow. Ladies are supposed to wee wee in the toilet and in private. But my mom couldn’t stop me from peeing in the shower. And there’s nothing like taking a whiz in the shower. Especially when you’re groggy in the morning and your bladder is full – Male or female, relieving yourself can sometimes be very satisfying. Of course, many people are totally grossed out by any bodily fluid of theirs. They believe that pee pee is supposed to go in the toilet, right? Nope.

Let’s leak some facts:
-Pee is sterile while it’s in your bladder.
-The ammonia in urine can actually make your teeth whiter. Just ask ancient Romans.
-Pee is 95% water. The rest is urea and a combination of salt, hormones, nutrients, and creatine.
-The World Record for the longest pee is 508 seconds – That’s almost 8.5 minutes!

Peeing in the shower is economical. It might only lighten your water bill slightly, but think about all the paper you’ll save. I don’t know about you, but I treat myself to finest TP available and the cost adds up.
