Is it normal for guys to pee outside?

My fiancé pees outside and I don’t understand why? He will pee in the back yard even though we have a bathroom. When I ask him he says “the rocks need my help” can someone explain?

pee is full of nitrogen, which is precisely what plants need to grow lmao

u/Ghigs Jack-of-some-trades Sep 24 '22

Yeah, nitrogen also burns plants when there's too much in one spot. Urine also has other salts and can give plants a hard time over the long run.

A few times won't kill anything but going the same spot over and over can kill them.

Am rural and I also work nights so I get a lot of privacy.

If I find a nice secluded spot and I really need to piss, I'll piss there.

I have a great break spot too. When I take my break I'll drive out there cos it's very private and I still get internet there. It's liberating as all hell to stand in the middle of the road and piss out into the void.

Don't do it in town though, unless maybe behind buildings or in an alley

My home is off the water grid, so peeing outside is a small step I take to minimize water usage. Of course my nearest neighbor is about 300 yards away.

u/AdvantageGlass Sep 24 '22

Same here, live in the mountains surrounded by forest. We had no rain for over a month so got into "if yellow let it mellow" territory. At that point its better to just go outside.

I don't get the people freaking out about this. It has to be cultural, I'm guessing urban areas with small yards or something. When you have multiple acres in the woods with a single access point to the property there really is no risk to exposing yourself or making something smell like piss.

Plus peeing in the snow is fun.

When I first adopted my dog, we thought it was super cool that we trained him to pee on this little fake fire hydrant in the yard. Not only did it consolidate the pee to a specific area, but I could take him there and he’d instantly pee so it was quicker in the rain.

A few months later I took him on our first road trip to visit family. My wife had flown ahead and I drove with the dog, 8 hours. We didn’t bring the fire hydrant. So the dog didn’t pee. I tried stopping at the side of the road and peeing on a fence, didn’t work. Stopped at the gas station that has a tree dyed yellow from all the dog pee of thousands of cars stopping there. No pee. He held it the entire 8 hours til we got to the destination, and he got so excited seeing my wife, that he peed all over the driveway.

So later I taught him to pee on verbal command too. “Go sniff”.

Put it to you this way: I've only peed outside when I was a child when we couldn't find a bathroom, or while hiking as an adult when I didn't have access to a bathroom or porto potty. And it never felt like freedom or embracing nature or marking my territory. It was always furtive and in a rush!

ETA: Also, now this anecdote makes sens:e... My husband was teaching a Kindergarten class decades ago in Florida. He and the class was outside (maybe it was a school trip). Cars would drive by and one little boy would swirl his hips as each car passed by. Over and over, hands on hips, following each car with his hips. My husband asked what he was doing and the kid said "Peein' on it. " He was pretending to pee on every car that went by.

As an American living in Northern Spain, I was really surprised to see all the public peeing. If a guy who is driving has to go, he'll just pull over wherever and pee at the side of the road. No real attempt made at privacy. Often at fiestas, there is no bathroom, so the ladies also pee outside, they just go off to the side somewhere. They are much more chill about the whole thing here. I've lost count of the number of times I've seen people peeing outside.

I live near the camino de Santiago, a famous pilgrimage route, so there are tons of pilgrims/hikers. Through pilgrimage people, I learned about a simple plastic device for women so they can pee standing up. It's the best invention ever. I hike a lot, and also metal detect, so I never go anywhere without my pstyle. Ladies, get one if you want to experience the joys of peeing outside. It's a freakin' miracle.

Is may seem strange to some of us but it's probably the most normal thing we could do as humans. We like being in nature especially in our most vulnerable moments such as when peeing. It's hardwired into all of us. As a society we've lost that connection to our more natural/primitive instincts. I personally don't pee outside just because I was born and raised in NYC with no backyard all my life and I'm used to using the bathroom always. But probably would even be good for environment to poop and pee in nature. Depending what you're eating of course.

If you bury your own waste well, yes.

I grew up on an acre in a rural area and it was very normal. All my friends and myself would just pee wherever when we were outside playing.

Why would I waste the time to go walk into the house when I can just do it in my backyard while I’m out there? Also, it feels better for some reason to just be outside pissing on the ground (in your gated backyard of course). It’s water usage friendly as well hah!

Can't ask for a more peaceful piss. Just point generally forward, release, relax

When I was a kid(3-4ish), my parents took me on a trip and since I wouldn’t stop talking, my mom had to take me out of the tour and go to a courtyard of a pretty important historical landmark. My mom wasn’t paying close attention and I ended up peeing on a random tree in the middle of said national of that national landmark.

Since then I’m not sure what it was but I’m up to three national landmarks (one of them was a Mexican national landmark) now because of the lack of bathrooms at historical sites.

My nephew is just like me and will piss anywhere. A few months ago he did waiting in the line at six flags. Just crossed under a small fence and found a nice tree.

I take a piss outside everytime I let the dog out to do their business. Why waste the water to flush the toilet is what I think.

u/Stunning-Parsnip-886 Sep 24 '22

Why would you waste the water rather then give back to nature

u/OhOkayFairEnough Sep 24 '22

Always. Saves on water. Feels good. Marks territory. It's natural and should be destigmified for all genders. Gives you an excuse to get some fresh air. Bonding activity with pets. Plenty of reasons. No true arguments against IMO.

It is incredibly peaceful and nice.

You have a task you need to do every day. It's boring, it's mindless, it's just a chore.

Would you prefer to do it in a small prison cell with plain painted walls and artificial sounds, or outside with trees and bushes and grass and singing birds?

Also if your steam splits in the bathroom you will make a mess everywhere that you will need to clean up. If it splits outside it doesn't matter.

It's just so much nicer

Yeah Europe was disgusting. Posthumous studies show no signs on cholera or other indications of a lack in sanitation practices in the early Americas, African continent, or most indigenous cultures. The problem comes when spreading empires cut people off from their traditional practices, through war and colonialism. People forget how to live well in their little pocket of the world. But people are slowly remembering and recovering traditional practices. That historical European approach to waste management was disgusting. 0/10 recommend

Grew up in a rural area and did it all the time. Live in a suburb now. Rarely happens, but it does. Completely normal imo

Nothing wrong with using natures toilet.

One of the perks of being able to pee while standing.

u/SoulRockX20A Sep 24 '22

If there is a nearby bathroom, then I use the bathroom. The only times I pee outside is if there is no bathroom at all.

Peeing in your backyard while drunk is self care

u/Sea-Climate6841 Sep 24 '22

Purely based on your post, no. Although, if you have huge garden with a rockery and he has a few drinks sitting down there then sure. If you have a regular garden then no. (From someone who did have a bit of land to moving to a city…I will always use the bathroom if I need to).

It's normal, but not in the back yard if you live in a city. That's weird. If you live in the countryside, it's a bit less weird.

Saves on water from flushing a toilet. Makes the grass grow (urea is fertiliser after all). Feels nice if there's a light breeze. My wife will pee outside occasionally too.

u/andooet Sep 24 '22

In the back yard? Fuck no, that's just gross. On a hike or somewhere remote? Sure, but that patch of the yard gonna smell like piss after a while

If you live in a suburban area where neighbors can see then yes, he's weird.

Other than that, pee wherever you want.

All the time. Simple answer, my patio door is usually closer than the toilet. Hell, I peed in the laundry sink yesterday cause I didn't wanna walk upstairs.

u/Jimothy_Egg Sep 24 '22

At first I was put off by what you wrote. It seemed kinda gross and like an extra hassle to go outside and get your garden all covered in pee.

Then I was even more put off by the comment section full of people glorifying it.

But then i realized that this is likely a cultural difference.

When I was very little, my parents allowed me to pee in our tiny garden if I couldn't hold it any longer (going upstairs took some time). But other than that it still seems odd.

Then again, I was recently visiting a friend in a very VERY rural area for a party in a huge garden... and when the only toilet in the house was blocked, the guys went to a bush off the far end in the garden. Due to the sheer size of the property, it felt more like "going to pee in the woods" as opposed to "peeing in your yard"

So I guess this comes down to cultural differences of rural areas and urbanized living

Both men and women pee outside. Its fine

u/Shimerald Sep 24 '22

It's just not convenient for women, so it's not usually something we do unless there's no other choice (so not in our backyard). I assume that for men it is more convenient to just go where they are, so it's more common for men to pee outside.

I will walk past a bathroom to pee outside if given the option. Most guys I know are the same.

Extra credit, outdoor shower falls in the same category.
