Re: Plane flight to Europe

Recently returned from Europe and was able to (generally) stand and urinate in the toilets on the plane going over and on trains. On previous trips, I usually had to sit down before I could get a flow going especially when it was rough. Among other things, I put this increased success to finally fin...

Re: Good experience with GP and Urologist

My experience at the latest visit to Urologist for enlarged prostate. I thought I would mention during the consultation that having trouble with urine flow because of the enlarged prostate was not helped by having a shy bladder. It did not elicit any follow up comment from the urologist (or the fema...

Finding a pee buddy – a new lease of life

After a request by email, I finally got up the courage to make face to face contact with a potential pee buddy I had been corresponding with for a number of years. I am glad I did. First obstacle, was to change my name – I had been using an alias on the Australian board but had given my town. It was...

Don't loiter in loud clothing

The suggestion that you wait for others to go in so you can test yourself, gets awkward with so much video surveillance in shopping centres. I have one suggestion. Don't wear 'loud' or distinctive clothing. Make sure you blend into the background. Big brother may be watching.

Frustration

You leave home after ensuring a good fluid intake ready to test your progress. You get to the crowded shopping centre with a full bladder and there is no one at the urinals or comes in while you are there. That is frustration...

Newcastle Sojourn and Toowoomba Experience

I know the feeling of some measure of success. You wish you could do a 'high five' as you leave. (after you wash your hands of course) Perhaps I should document the variety here in Toowoomba. None are partition between urinals friendly but some are better than others. The pubs are the least friendly.

Sydney venues

Have you tried the first floor QVB, down the ABC shop end? Good for training with the four urinals in a circle. The two cubicles are a challenge to the true shy bladder with doors which are not full height and stop way to short of the floor. This arrangement was a very 'cruel' construction in old go...
