buncha perverts

I wouldn't want my name on this study. Public restroom spies? That's REAL science for you.

I don't always wash my hands when I use a public restroom. I try not to touch ANYTHING in the got-dam place unless I have to. And my daddy taught me as a boy not to piss on my hand when I take a leak. My dick is clean. That bathroom isn't.

I flush with my foot when I'm not in one of those auto-flush contraptions all airports seem to have now. And seeing the people who are so hygenic to wash their hands in public restrooms, I'd just as soon wash my hands in a commode as use a sink behind them.

Bejus. I don't like touching the doorknobs in those places, and I'm no prude.


A-Man, saying I heard a long time ago:

"If you have to wash your hands after touching your genitals, maybe you need to wash your genitals."

I usually wash my hands, but if I know I won't be eating or touching food, sometimes I don't. I certainly don't like touching anything in the bathroom I don't have to. At my college, the paper-towel dispensor has motion detection, reducing the number of things I have to touch.

By your standards, my habits are clearly neurotic...

First, you should wash your hands regularly, whether or not you've used the bathroom.

Second, and as for not touching anything, I have a ritual that I've used for so long that I don't even think of it anymore.

Flush with foot, or with tissue in hand...

Roll down small bit of paper towel...

Wash hands, with soap, very aggressively...

Pull paper towel from dispenser...

Use paper towel to pull knob down on dispenser to get enough tissue with which to dry my hands...

Throw original piece of paper towel in trash...

Dry my hands...

Use paper towel with which I dried my hands to, again, roll out more paper towel...

Throw away wet tissue, and use dry tissue to open bathroom door...

If there's a can there, it goes in. If not, there should have been, and it goes on the floor next to the door.

Of course, my entire world was thrown into a tizzy when, while in NYC, I entered a bathroom with one of those damned blower thingies. I figured it out, but my travel companion was more than a bit amused at the process.

Always carry a small bottle of hand sanitizer with you. In the glove box if you're a guy.

I never wash my hands in a public facility....I always cary disinfectant handi~wipes in the car. I travel a lot, and sometimes I wish I had a haz~mat suit to enter some of the bathrooms and rest stops I've had to stop at. Eeeew!

I wash my hands BEFORE I touch my dick.

I know where my dick's been, and I know it's clean, I can't say the same about everything that's touched the door handles, sink, etc....
