I am currently in a relationship with a particularly slippery siren of a woman. She refuses to be tied down, not wanting to give up her autonomy, her yet-unknown dreams. She has told me repeatedly that she wants a relationship in addition to her life and never central to it. She has also told me that I may want to cut my losses and get out of the relationship while I still can (occasionally she’ll do the push/pulling away thing—so irritating). Never in my life have I met anyone that I’ve adored more than her. This is the most challenging, loving, educational, open, intimate relationship I’ve ever been in and now you all know it.
So my story selection takes place in my bathroom. My lover and I live seven blocks away from each other and sleep at one or the other’s house mostly every night. One night we are both in the bathroom getting ready for bed—teeth-brushing, face-washing, that kind of thing. We finish brushing our teeth at about the same time and we start making-out a little bit. While we’re making out she unbuttons her jeans and awkwardly sits on the toilet…while we’re still kissing. My lips are still locked to hers as I follow her down to her sitting position on the throne. She breaks the kiss off as soon as she starts peeing.
“What?” I say.
“I don’t know. That’s weird,” she says.
I hadn’t given the weirdness of the situation any thought so I say,
“Yeah.” And she makes a grossed-out face.
So I put the question to my fellow bloggers: is it strange to make-out with someone while they’re peeing? Or taking it from the other side, is it strange to make-out with someone while you’re peeing? I can understand the inelegance of kissing while you poop—the straining, the ploppity-plops, and the eventual smell, but while peeing? I didn’t have a problem with it and she certainly didn’t have trouble dropping trow in front of me. I’d like to think that I wouldn’t mind kissing someone while I was peeing, seeing it as more of an experience to be had than a situation to be scrutinized, but that’s just me. Is it a privacy issue? If so, why didn’t she just kick me out of the bathroom? I think this was a first for both of us so we didn’t know our boundaries on this one.
Mental Note: Before you kiss your partner while they’re on the toilet (doing whatever) make sure you check-in with them first before you start gettin’ busy.
