Do women bath in pairs? That's a new one on me :-S

I can't stand the Americans calling the loo/toilet/wc 'bathroom'.....Way back in my youth,many moons ago, when at a dance evening when living in the UK, going to the LOO (!!!)
with my female friend, but NOT in the same cubicle.Lol.Shyness at having to walk across the dance floor alone maybe?

Probably because most women are Pear ( pair ) Shaped. !!!!!!!!!!.

" i don't fancy mine much shall we dump them"

always did when we were "young"..............

because the ladies loo was usually horrible........ nowhere to put a handbag except the floor......... so we took turns holding bags & using loo.

All of the above - felt a bit safer with a friend - late at night seems more prevalent today as well

We men (we not used intentionally :-() are very different to you ladeez. Urinals are not any sort of social place. We rush in at last minute. Ignore anyone else who is performing. Don't establish eye contact, don't smile, hum but never ever speak. Ignore aromas coming out of cubicles - wonder why they couldn't have done it at home before venturing out.

Washing hands afterwards is more of a bonding or social event - with chuckles as we dry our hands in the hot air blower and watch how much surplus skin we actually have on back of hands :-) :-)

Sorry ladies - I love you all really.

I await a similar "male" oriented response with interest.

Many years ago a crowd of us (co-workers) went for a drink.......... we didn't know it was a gay bar. A mixed crowd.

The females thought it was great fun, but the guys went all "weird"!

We females went into hysterical laughter when we realised our male workmates were going to the loo in pairs!! Safety in numbers?

The ladies loo was "interesting"....... at least half the "ladies" at the mirror were 6' tall, big hair, too much makeup and deep voices.
