Do you scratch your backside in public?

I had to laugh last week when me and the guy's at work saw a man scratching his rear in public. The guy was just going right to town on his rear end. Normally I try and hide it when I get an itch back there, but this guy sure didn't. So I have to ask. How many people scratch there rear end in public?

being clean has nothing to do with it, some day's we just get an itch. But a private place is much better to do it in, or at least make sure no one is watching. I think it's funny though when you see someone really scratching away in public.

Yeah that would be me, either find a place that is private or look before doing it.

No way. It's embarrassing. Even if you don't care, think about the feeling of the people that watch. I'll try not to scratch, in public or not.Scratching leave scar, I don't like scar. If you feel itchy, find a way to get rid of it. I used water to cool any place that feel itchy down. It helps a bit.

There are some day's though when we have to scratch it, but still. We should at least try and find a private area where not everyone is going to be watching. That was just so funny.

Hi young, I would not scratch my butt in public. But I am also a girl, I know this may seem a very traditional thing to say. I do see men as being more open about scratching body parts. It does look gross to me, but I am used to it by now.

Yes, I do think that some men are more open with what they do in public. I of course was brought up that there are certain thing's you dont do in public.

I'm sure most guys that seen him where having a laugh maybe even some ladies. Though there are people who would find this gross. I've never seen anyone scratching their behind in public, if I did I would look away and probably be embarrased for the person. There are just some things you don't do in public this and picking your nose are a few. I have seen a guy scratching an itch in a most private area..:O I think if you have an itch in such places and you really need to scratch you should find an area where no one is around or could be watching you, as there are people who find it offensive. I know it's just an itch, as my friends would call a private itch, but some people can be so uptight. If I happened to have such an itch I would just put up with it. LoL

Yes some itches should be kept in private. In fact I have seen a few guy's doing the private area itches in public as well, and I don't think that is right at all. You don't know if someone is watching that may be offended by it. We sure did get a good laugh though. I think the whole station talked about that all last week.
