peeing with no privacy

I can't pee with no privacy.

I try but I just can't. I.E. some men's bathrooms just do not have any privacy.

Most men's bathrooms have private cubicles.

pretty common really. I've had it occasionally and I know many friends who have had it too.

I have the same problem. I pull it out and stand there trying to piss but it wont come out. I've found the solution though. I just shut off awareness of my surroundings and pretend I'm the only one there. Give it a shot. You'll be glad you learned how to piss in public if you ever end up in a jail cell with 5 other people. With me its not about people seeing me piss, its about them hearing me. One night I got thrown in the drunk tank and had a whole cell to myself but I was arguing with the guy in the next cell cuz I was trying to go to sleep and he wouldn't shut up banging the bars and shouting then I went to take a piss and it was a metal toilet with no water so it made loads of noise and I just couldn't go with that guy being able to hear it. I'm pretty sure the shutting out my surroundings trick woulda worked though.

Funny you mentioned that.

I was just in jail with like 25 people in a small holding cell with hard cement floors and wooden benches and an old tv surrounded by plastic glass with 1950s shows running. The phone was right next to the toilet and there were people standing next to the toilet too.

I went to the toilet twice to try and piss with no luck. Luckily I got after a few hours but I was starting to go a little nuts.

You don't have to be outside or a man to find this difficult, I sometimes get "stage fright" if I can hear other people in the next cubicle.

I find that if I put my fingers in my ears then everything "flows" as usual :)

I think this is part of our survival fight or flight mechcanism. You hear a supposed predator and all your body functions gear towards fleeing as a priority. That's my theory.

An option may be to use earplugs. As a man I guess putting your fingers in your ears can get a bit messy...
