    I sit once I've covered the seat in toilet paper. The worst public toilets are the ones with pits IMO. I know they're good for the environment but the smell 😵

    Sorry not completely related but my ex used to do this which is fair enough. We were shopping at the local centre and he desperately had to go. So he comes out and we continue on our merry way for at least an hour. We were walking through the car park back to the car when he walked infront of me to cross before a car came. To my horror he had a train of toilet paper hanging out of the back of his shorts...at least 4 squares long! Cant imagine the looks we were getting walking around shopping for that last hour

    I sit.

    That's if I have to use a public toilet. I do try to avoid it or go to the ones I know are cleaned regularly.

    This thread has highlighted why the female toilets are always so busy though

    My legs and butt cheeks ain't going to catch anything. I sit. I wash my hands thoroughly and I leave. Simple

    I hate public toilets but I know I'm not going to catch anything if I wash my hands properly.
    Not sure I agree. I've seen blood smudged in the toilet bowl. If it is reasonably fresh, you don't see it right away and your leg brushes up against it, surely you can catch something?

    Also gastro etc can be caught even if you wash your hands in the basin.

    What if you had a tiny abrasion on your butt? And someone peed on the seat and did a half arsed job of wiping it with toilet paper?

    I'm 8 months and still hovering. If it gets to the point where I can't hover I'm becoming a hermit!
