So I'm reading the main page article about bodily functions in front of partners and I'm really surprised at how...prudish people are.

I mean, I don't care what other people do but I am surprised. The words "courtesy" and "respect keep coming up, too. I don't really see how those are intrinsic to the topic. If it's what you believe then fine, but it's not universal.

But then in this household we're so joined at the hip that we often keep each other company through long and arduous poos, so what do I know?

What is your take on it, guys?
