Do you poop?

Poop in public? At work? At a friends house.

I NEVER poop anywhere but home unless its a true emergency. I find most women have been holding their poop for years.

I'll poop wherever I need to go. It's a basic human function: we all do it. I've been known to poop in public toilets, in another person's bathroom, sometimes even on the side of the road if I really need to go that badly.

OK that last post was funny.

I poop where ever I am too. Never pooped on the side of the road though. I would be in WAY too much pain to hold it.

I poop wherever if I need to poop. I have an irritable digestive system that also acts up when I have an anxiety attack, which happen frequently in public places. I have managed to avoid pooping on the side of the road so far! Though I still had pants on when my son was crowning (I was sitting in a wheelchair), and I know there was poopage at that time. Needless to say, I told the nurse to just throw away those underpants!

Yeah, normal bodily functions just don't hang me up - life is too short!

I only go at home. My intestines are very shy.

I DO go now at my bff's house, but ONLY when we stay there overnight for 2 or more nights. I have real issues with relaxing enough to poop in public.

When you gotta go, you gotta go. I will admit that I usually wait in a public restroom until someone flushes or leaves.

I do that too, or I'll flush mine on purpose to cover any sounds

If I'm not at home, I usually look for a one-seater. At work I do that or just use the less-traveled restroom when nobody else is there.

the side of the road? I would have to be almost pooping my pants! And no, only at home or in case of emergency. I have poop in public anxiety.

Ha! Since having kids the only time I get to poop alone is in public, I take that chance any time I can get it!

I, too, have shy intestines and virtually never poop in public. Contrast me to my sister who practically lives on the toilet and takes her own sweet time dropping the kids off at the pool even if it's in public. We were in New York City at a Starbucks and she was in their one bathroom for so long that she almost got in a fight with the angry woman who was waiting to go next,

I'm willing to poop pretty much wherever I happen to be. But mysteriously, if I am somewhere very uncomfortable I don't get the urge I don't purposely hold it or anything, just don't need to go.

One time I went on a road trip to a big concert thing, and the porta-potties were so nasty! I didn't feel the need to poop, no bodily urge at all, for 5 days! Weird. About halfway home we stopped for something to eat and the place had a nice clean bathroom, and suddenly it was urgent. Weird.

I poop everywhere. Ds' birth (giant noggin) left me with an anal fissure and a few years of lack of sensation, so I had no warning that I was going to have a movement. We'd be on rural roads of Louisiana and I'd be panting, trying not to let my bowels contract, counting the miles till the next gas station. We knew where all of them were on those back roads. Nowadays I'm so thankful for each normal bowel movement I don't care where I have to deposit it.

We are six: Me : Dh : Ds1('00) Dd('02) Ds2('05) Ds3('08) and, wow! Soon to be seven, Dd2 due 4/23.

I poop whenever I have to. I have never pooped by the side of the road (hee hee) but I have pooped in the woods. (No, I am not a bear.) In fact I would far prefer pooping in the woods to pooping in one of those hellacious festival port-a-potties.

DH, on the other hand, will hold back poop for hours until he gets home. I don't know how he does it. I'm not capable of holding it for that long - when I gotta go, I gotta go.

I don't have a problem with pooping anywhere, but I'm more comfortable in my own (clean) bathroom. It really grosses me out when people have an explosive-sounding BM in a public bathroom, but that's just me.

Eh, I will poop almost anywhere. I may prefer to do it at home, but I will not perforate an intestine or anything.

Everyone poops.

I will poop in a public toilet if I have to. I am not going to hold it in if there is a toilet right there in front of me.

I don't poop at friend's houses. I do poop at family houses.

For some reason I ALWAYS poop when we go to the mall ( we only go about once every 2 or 3 mos but every time we do go I have to poop there )

I have pooped in the woods many times...but only after a couple of days on the trail. I can never go the first couple of days.

I can poop in a variety of different places but I do have some conditions I guess.

ont he to sit or not to sit post i said if i am peeing i am sitting. Pooping? no way-i can feel the urge and comfortably wait to go for 8 hours or so, i pretty much only poop at home.

side note; my SIL is in college and lives in a dorm and she has developed the ability to poop silently in the exact length of time it takes her to pee. now i think THAT skill above all others (like her degree) is going to get her a nice post-college job

First, can I just say that I really really hate the word "poop"? Yeah, I'm weird! I usually just say 'poo' or 'go potty'.
And I can't stand to poo in public, not even at work unless I'm REALLY REALLY desperate. I do my intestines no favors at all!

"Shy Intestines"

I poop where ever I need to. I did go on the side of the road once and wiped with one of DC's cloth wipes. I pooped many times in the woods at Rainbow Gatherings... pretty much you have a trough to poop in and anyone and their brother can watch you do your thing.
