Motel Pools

Most of the pools don't have a ladies room by the pool so If I have to pee when swimming I pee in the pool.
If I'm on the beach on the river I always go out in the river sometimes just to pee in it.
I pull my bottoms down to mid thigh and hold on to them and pee standing in the pool or river. Finished I pull my bottoms up and swim away.
If there is a ladies room I'll use it instead of peeing in the pool
I've noticed the same myself in Motel Pools. Whether indoor or outdoor, they often don't have restrooms near. A few weeks ago while traveling on business I noticed moms sending kids over to a shower in the corner of room. They took a quick shower, but I don't imagine that's why they went there.

In that case, better to use the shower or pool?

It should be sterile, but a lot of people carry antibiotic resistant bacteria in their urine, and a lot of people are walking around with undiagnosed UTI's. Peeing on the shower floor is just disgusting. All I gotta say is let that shower water run a longggg time, and wash hands after exiting the washroom and touching those door handles....

i let my girls (and myslef) pee either on a toilet, or in a shower, but never in a pool, just because who wants to swim in our pee? i do pee in the ocean, or a lake, but no pools.

new to the forums and I am so glad I found them.. a heap of info and discussions nobody mentions in real life..

I know I have peed in the public shower and in the pool. only if I just had to.. I know I was embarrassed..

I as well encouraged my daughter to pee before taking a shower and after but sometimes it just happened to need to pee and I let her let go in the shower.. She is 23 now and I have note asked her, maybe I should LOL.

the other thing is that my DD as a toddler/young kid always was really messy when she went. her stream usually shot straight up and front.. she used to make a huge mess and sometimes I encouraged her to just remove her pants/undies and step into the shower or tub and let go to her hearts content. she thought it was cool and I honestly i thought it was cool.. what can I say I am messy as well like mommy like DD.

now .... i've heard that there was a drive in Brasil in 2009 to encourage people to pee in their daily shower in order to save on about 12 liters of water per flushed toilet ... so why not ? it all goes down the drain anyway & as long as you clean the shower regularly ...

I am also for that.. But I am not sure how much I want to encourage kids to do it..
I would be very embarrassed if they talked to people and announced that parents or grand parents encouraged them to do so..

I am all for water conservation though..
