When is the world ending? Because…

If there's one thing that we've learned recently, it's that not everyone's hygiene habits are in line with our own. Like, remember when people on Twitter actually exposed that they had never washed their legs or feet in the shower? Or, when the internet debated whether or not swimming counts as bathing? (FYI, it does not.)

Well, in other smelly news… a recent survey has found that one in 30 of us have pooped in the shower. Yep, that's right.

The survey was carried out by bathroom brand QS Supplies and 1,010 British and American people were surveyed on their, um, bathroom habits. To make matters worse, that statistic is from people doing it in their work showers. Sorry, people are actually doing a number two in the showers IN THEIR OFFICE!? I-


Now peeing in the shower is a kind of normalised concept, right? In fact, according to this study, 1 in 3 people (68% of men and 56% of women) said they've peed while showering.

But pooping in the shower and potentially blocking it with human waste? Yeah, we can't endorse that. Sounds like something that could be easily avoided by simply heading over to the toilet, which is usually in the same room.


However, taking a number two in the shower isn't so shocking when you consider the other results from the survey. For example, 1 in 20 have masturbated in the shower at work, while 1 in 3 women use wet wipes down there instead of showering.
