You are what you poo...

constipated face - told you to eat fibers

Let's go into the art of defecating a.k.a poo-ing! I've had instances where I was made to answer psychological exams which are supposed to make you learn about yourself more after your answers were being interpreted in some way. I was just wondering if some people could interpret your personality just by asking about your rituals when you're on top of the 'throne'! Here are some of the most common testimonies I've heard:[b][i] 1) Some can't poo if they're not in their own comfort room/bathroom/ restroom 2) Some can't poo without the toilet seat, while others hate the presence of it 3) Most people sit with their butts but some would sit on top of the toilet seats like a toddler...or...a frog 4) Some can't poo if they won't smoke 5) Some can't poo if the toilet seat is wet (like me) 6) Some can't poo if there's a sound of running water (like me again! It messes with the concentration thing) 7) Some need music...perhaps to veer their senses away from the odor?) Some can't poo without lighting lavender scented candles first (oooh...!) 9) Some just can't poo because they didn't pay attention to the doctor saying that fibers aid in their digestion 10) Some people won't poo at the same time everyday, while some have intrinsic alarm clocks that trigger everytime nature calls![/i][/b] So, would you be interested to answer psychological exams of this nature? Water? or Toilet paper?:D And....do you have any other rituals aside from those 10?

I have never tried, but I seriously don't think I could poo while someone was watching me. That would just be disgusting. Yes, I NEED the seat, I don't think I could poo without it, either. I have met people that say they can't poo unless they are at home and I think that is terribly funny. If ya gotta poo, ya gotta POO! ROFL. And my cats sometimes wet the seat for me playing in there or getting a drink while it is clean, and I always check it first and wipe it now after getting a cold, wet, butt a few times. ROFL. My hubby sits in there for an hour with his smokes and a newspaper. I don't know what the big contemplation is. He is in there at least 5x/day. Geesh! LOL.

I don't think I could bear the presence of someone else in the bathroom while I'm releasing my "energies". But I do know a lot of people who won't poo even if they gotta poo. Talk about anal sphincters with very high self control. I also hate wet toilet seats. LOL @ your husband's toilet vices. But expressing that frequently might actually be healthy. They say that we should poo as often as we eat.

Somewhere I'd be willing to bet that there's a book on the subject. With all of the humor, comfort products (cushy toilet paper, padded seats, etc.), medications to improve, it's easy to see that it's a subject more thought about that many are willing to admit. It starts at an early age too, many infants have their first smiles when poo-ing...right? I've heard that this is one of life's most underrated pleasures...who knows? Maybe there is some truth to that. I think it's probably the second most discussed topic in the world. One habit you forgot on your list is reading. Nothing like a good book while on the throne

Ah-yeah.... That would be a great addition to the list! How come I never thought of that? Maybe straining to 'you know' and reading at the same just don't go well with each other for me. I wonder what happens to me when the story in a novel reaches the most thrilling part!

This is one of those things that increases in proportion to how many children are in your household. Even when they get to be teens, sometimes the only time you get peace and quiet is to visit the loo...and bring a book. Husbands aren't much better sometimes.

Well, mysD, you should have also known by now that your secret is always safe with me! Oh well, whatever your bathroom ritual is, I sure hope you aren't one of those who seem fond of the "frog" position!

Which makes me wonder how a frog does its thing as well.

Well, what an interesting topic you started. I think you can add me on the number 4. I usually smoke when I poo. I think it is more of a habit. No smoke, no poo.

You're not alone in that one. I happen to know other people who had to smoke to "express" themselves!

I can't poo when I'm being watched or talked to. Of course I suppose that It depends on who is doing the watching! LOL.

You're not alone in that, pike. I can't stand any company in the bathroom as well. Does that mean we turn into a total snob when we're atop the throne?

Cool trivia about the art of pooing. It just proves that taking a dump takes a lot more than sitting on the bowl. I can't poo if someone is watching me. Am I weird?

Define weird... Is it when a person can't dump when someone's watching? Or is it when someone makes a discussion about 'dumping'?
