Men's Room II


Two comments from yesterday's post were right on the money. Our good friend Lord Patrick over at MenMenMen mentions that it's a whole new ballgame (no pun intended) when the urinal is a long trough. Then an anonymous commentor touched on the issues and rules of engagement under those circumstances.



Indeed, things change when you discover the only option available is a trough-style fixture. Of course the stall is always a choice. But, let's imagine you walk in and the stall is already taken. What to do? You stand at the opposite end of the trough (or put as much distance between you as possible) and angle your body away from the other guy; and no talking. (Unless, of course, as I mentioned yesterday, you happen to be in a place where looking and maybe even touching could be expected.) A quick glance to check out the dick is normal and damn near automatic. If it's crowded - like the men's room in the Barstow Station in Barstow, California, well...you'll just have to grin and bare (and bear) your meat. And oddly enough, talking is permitted in this situation - mainly because it's a nervous-reaction attempt to draw attention away from the fact that we're all standing there, shoulder to shoulder, with our cocks in hand. Some guys who are extremely piss-shy look for other alternatives - like maybe taking a leak in a little nook out behind the building (I've witnessed this happen).


Anon also notes that should we find ourselves in the great outdoors, the rules change quite drastically - for most of us, anyway. For some reason, pissing outside becomes kind of a game if we're in a group. Suddenly, standing there with your pecker in your hand watering the foliage (if there is any) is nothing to be shy about, you can look at the neighboring cocks as long as noone looks for too long a time, and talking is common; joking about taking a whizz outside is the usual topic, mainly about how much easier we have it than the ladies when we gotta take a leak and there are no facilities (or we've choosen not to use them!).




Semi-boners are quite common in this situation, but oddly enough it's rarely mentioned.

Something else, do not be afraid or shy. I was brought up to fear sex. Be proud and go in there and use whatever facility. You might make a friend.

I gotta agree with anon today... don't be shy! who gives a damn if someone is looking at my Dick?

My question is,,,what do you do if the guy next to you starts to jerk his? What is the etiquette here?

well my son is a firm believer if he has to pee so be it he'll pee on a tree just about anywhere that doesn't get him in trouble

As young kids we were not afraid of peeing together! We used to see how high up the fence we could make our piss reach! How we change as we grow older.

This thing about Rules of the Men's Room reminds me of a Joseph Campbell quote (originally about religion of course):

Lots of Rules, and No Mercy!

The last two posts have been pretty informative, I liked the game that was linked. I think everyone should play.

I agree with Lord Patrick, I remember just pissing and seeing who could go the highest and/or furthest.

@ QH - well, for the rules on that, see Men's Room I...

Great comments everyone! It's amazing how things change as we age...I do remember, as Lord Patrick says, being fearless as a kid. We'd pee everywhere and anywhere. And as becca indicates about her son, we were all cool with it as long as we didn't get in trouble - and we never did!

There is one instance where it is acceptable to talk/joke in a crowded straight restroom. After drinking too much beer/soda during a Red Sox game there is a huge rush to the restrooms after the game ends. The wait times can be over 20 minutes with everyone crossing their legs and dancing around waiting for their turn. When your turn at the urinal arrives there is nothing better than letting out a huge sigh of relief and letting everyone still waiting know how great it feels to be opening up the flood gates. ;P

@ Anon - Yeah, I forgot about that, didn't I? At a world series game in LA (years ago) the guys were lined up at the urinals, stalls, sinks, - even gathered around the floor drain - and there was a lot of jabbering going on. Some talk about the game, most about how badly we all needed to piss! The need to relieve was so strong, nobody even complained about the women who had made their way into the men's room to use the stalls!
