About a strange website.
You can find some pretty strange stuff on the web.
I stumbled across a site called “The Toilet” As the name implies it contains stories about people using the toilet. Also about people not making it to the toilet. Also about people who deliberately don’t make it to the toilet.
The amazing thing I discovered reading the site is how many people are embarassed to poop in public toilets.
The most extreme example of that was the young woman who managed to reach the age of 18 without ever having had a bowel movement in a public restroom. Then she went off to college. She lived in the dorm. A dorm where she did not have access to a private bathroom. Rather than go through the trauma of having to poop around other women, she would hold her bowels ALL WEEK and only use the toilet for a BM went she went home on the weekends. Hard to imagine someone being less uncomfortable holding it for five days than using a public toilet.
Another story was written by a 25 year old woman who had had exactly four bowel movements in public toilets in her whole life. All were in situations where she had to go so badly it was either go in the public toilet on go in her pants. The last time she had pooped in a public restroom was 10 years earlied when she was 15. So she had grown up, finished school, gotten a job, gotten married all without using a public toilet for a bowel movement.
She talked about how as a kid she would go out to dinner and the movies with her family and the would have to stop home in between so Claire could have a bowel movement. She talked about going out with her friends and having to leave early because she had to poop and couldn’t bring herself to use the public restroom. She talked about how she always tried to poop before work in the morning so she wouldn’t have to go at work.
This story has a happy ending. Despite her efforts to avoid it one day Claire did need a bowel movemwnt at work. Normally she would have held it until she got home but she had plans to meet her friends right after work for a girls night out. She didn’t want to hold her poop because then she would be uncomfortable and wouldn’t enjoy her time with her friends. She thoght about going home to poop and catching up to her friends later but that seemed silly. So she gritted her teeth, headed for the ladies room in her office and sat down to have her first public bowel movement in a decade.
That did the trick. She went out and had a wonderful time with her friends and never had a problem using public restrooms again
