Probably is fine for a health and water saving but smells really bad for a while.

You don't need to tell guys that, because most will do it anyway.

Just be soaping up while you're peeing, and make sure to take the shortest shower possible. It's a win-win situation.

Makes things greener if you pee in the garden.

Hard to do when you are F though. The neighbors might complain?

I do it all the time after a run or bike ride. I'm too sweaty to sit on the seat. I figure I'm the one who scrubs the tub anyway.

Just use a lot of soap and water to rinse.. There are worse things on the planet than a little pee. Sheesh.

Not if you drink the water you're supposed to every day.

Or if you've had asparagus.

Quite true! But who has asparagus every day? I'd love to, but I'd go broke! LOL

I pee in the shower if I have the urge to while I'm showering, but I'm not going to hold it until shower time.

As for peeing in the tub and not rinsing it, that's just nasty. I don't want my house smelling like pee.
