I thin. t is grody as they used to say but what can we do? I used toilet seat protectors as much as possible.

Hey we touch doorknobs and trillions of germs there. It is just the thought that makes toilets seem ickier..

Kissing also has germs but not giving that up.

I wipe it dry, and take a chance... If it's warm, I have an imaginaiion attack, but maintain contact.

Not a fan and I don't use it unless I absolutely have to even then if it looks or smells repulsive I won't use it, otherwise I hover.

I wipe it off and use it without further thought. If you've ever been on a plane, or eaten in a restaurant then you've been exposed to far worse!

I hover for #1, I cover for #2. I'll hold it if I can but if you gotta go you gotta go. Rather not suffer through too much discomfort. Also look for the most acceptable stall to use.

All the above reasons are valid, but for me it's a bit different. I am ok doing all the stuff above if there is no one else in there. If its bust and you have to wait, I can't use it. It actually makes me gag. There are some smells individual up woman that just turns my stomach.

Even if all you can smell is her perfume, I gag and make a sharp exit

Lots of places where I work don't even provide facilities... I've resorted to a bucket in a horse stall.

Just can't. I have to line them with paper or several layers of tissue... most places just gross me out and I will sometimes hold it just to get home or somewhere I know is not "ick"... I guess I'm a bit particular there... but I do prefer a clean safe spot.

I don't. I squat over the seat while standing up. But that is a last resort. I try to never use a public facility... EVER.

Do you really even have to ask this question? :P

(Seriously, I love your questions, even this one, but I couldn't help responding with that answer. No offense intended.)

Nay. I don't sit on public seats or even the seats of others I know or visit. Unless, I've brought my Clorox Wipes. I'll lift that seat up with some toilet paper and squat. I don't piss all over the place either. If there are no seat covers, there's no way I'm sitting on any seat other than my own. I know I've cleaned my own seats.

You go to the theater or restaurants and just look at those stalls, the floor below, and the seats! Piss all over them. There are dirty booty marks or blood sometimes on those seats. You don't know what someone had, who sat on those seats. Some don't sit on the seat, but they don't lift the seat up and squat. So, they have piss all over the place. This is why so much are left on the seats. Ugh! NO WAY!
