    I can't go at all (number one, 2 or otherwise) if it's somewhere I'm not comfortable yet. It took me staying at my boyfriend's house 12 times before I could pee at his house but I can only ever go if there's no-one on the same floor of the house as me. This caused numerous problems when I was pregnant! It's nothing to do with sounds or smells or anything else, I'm just crazy :rotfl:

    I also can't throw up in a place I'm not used to either.

    I remember once walking into the ladies in my old place of work... into the middle of two women having a furious row over which of them had dropped a bomb in one of the two lavs.

    I was just in absolute fits in the (non-contaminated) cubicle ....

    Hmm. Carry on excreta, but not anywhere near me.

    What?! Isn't vomiting an involuntary process?! I mean... if you can inhibit your urge to vomit when you're somewhere "you're not used to", wouldn't you also inhibit it in familiar surroundings?

    as guys we complain about the irrational things women do, like:

    getting changed in private even though they've spent the whole night naked in bed with us
    telling us off for picking out nose, farting etc in public
    being anal about body hair and spending 3-4 hours a week getting rid of body hair.

    But lets be honest, if women didn't do any of that^^ it would be a major turn off right?

    I used to be really prim and even found peeing in public toilets mortifying, so much so I'd wait and wait and hope everyone else left... now I have children that's all gone and I'll do what I need to when I need to, although I don't like using public toilets still (more because they're often a bit yuck) so would rather be at home.
