    IF you're getting hot and steamy with your partner the last thing you want is a little bit of urine to escape. But one expert has said that this is actually more common than you might think - with millions of people worldwide suffering from incontinence. 1Incontinence is some-what of a taboo subject but one expert has said that peeing during sex is more common than you might thinkCredit: Getty - Contributor Not many people discuss incontinence - especially when it happens between the sheets. While some people might fetishise urine, with the so-called 'golden shower', others take a more conservative line when it comes to pee. One expert said unfortunately, there's no real explanation for coital incontinence. Amanda Savage, Pelvic Floor Physiotherapist and Advisor to Kegel8 said there are two types of incontinence that may expand into coital: urinary and stress. "Some women can experience urine leakage at different points of their sexual experience, too.  While some may encounter this throughout coitus, others find it only affects them as they orgasm, and some unlucky sufferers may have both.

    Although it sounds quite disgusting, the truth is that many people claim to have a bad habit when bathing, which is urinate in the shower. An infallible trick used by many mothers in all parts of the world when they want to teach their children to go to the bathroom alone and to leave the diaper is to sit them for a long time on the toilet and open the sink so that the noise of the water makes them want to urinate. According to experts, urinating when listening to or having contact with water is a psychological phenomenon called “conditioned response”, since it relates the effect of a sense (audio, smell, sight) on a basic physiological action. This is how the sound of water is directly related in our subconscious to the pleasure felt when releasing the bladder and therefore, many urinate just get into the shower. About this act, A video posted by a user named Alicia Jeffrey-Thomas went viral on TikTok explaining why you shouldn’t urinate while in the shower, especially women. @scrambledjam Reply...
    Saving Earth’s resources is important. For this reason, a study was carried out a long time ago on how much water would we save by pissing in the shower every day. However, there are other reasons not to do so. Especially if you are woman, as there are a couple of things you should know about pissing in the shower. And so a doctor has made it known in several of her videos on TikTok. As we said, a couple of years ago some students calculated how much water could be saved if we did one pee a day in the shower. They talked about the first of the day, of course; But it can actually be applied to any time you decide to shower. The results? Pissing in the shower for a year is save about 2,190 liters of water, they point out from IFLScience. And if we all did it at the same time, about 699,000 million liters of water could be saved.

    A doctor has warned people against peeing in the shower, claiming that the habit is 'dangerous' and could weaken their pelvic floor, which will, in turn, lead to 'leak issues' outside of the bathroom.  Dr Alicia Jeffrey-Thomas, who is a Boston-based pelvic floor therapist, took to TikTok to detail the dangerous side effects that can come from peeing while standing under a running stream of water.    According to the 30-year-old, the action of urinating in the shower causes your brain to associate the sound of running water with the urge to go to the bathroom - a seemingly innocent connection that the medical expert insists can cause much more serious issues later down the line.   'If you pee while the water is running then you're creating an association in your brain between the sound of running water and having to pee,' she told her 468,000 followers.

    It’s true what they say: Kitchens and bathrooms sell houses. Of course, this doesn’t mean that the first priority when buying a new construction home is its resale value. Quite the contrary. Among the first priorities of buying a new construction home are its livability and its ability to stand the tests of time. Both of these factors weigh into decisions around bathrooms, especially the master, or primary, bathroom. Plan for 10 to 15 years when designing the master bathroom. Tearing out bathroom flooring, showers and tubs will be much more cumbersome and pricey in 2036 than choosing in 2021 what you’ll still like in the future. Some areas worth the splurge: Frameless glass shower enclosure The transparent, frameless glass shower enclosure provides a crisp, elegant look while simplifying cleaning and allowing you to showcase the elegance of the tile work in the shower surround and floor. Through it, the sight of a solid marble wall, intricate tile designs or a fine, herringbone marble tile pattern on the shower floor will bring happiness. Unless the bathroom ceiling is vaulted,...
    THIS woman has been collecting her stray hairs for months to create homemade hair extensions. The Tiktok user, who goes by the name cocolee379, has racked up over 3 million likes on the video, and people can’t believe how much hair she has collected so far.  5This woman now has two strips of extensions made of her own hairCredit: cocolee379/TikTok Since she began the challenge in August, every time this woman has seen one of her hairs lying on the ground, stuck to the shower, or attached to her clothes, she carefully picks it up. She even makes sure to check less obvious spots for fallen hair - like her car interior, which collects a surprising amount of hair. The strands then go into a zip-lock bag, and when enough has been collected, this Tiktok user sticks the hairs one-by-one onto strips of adhesive tape. Lined up on her bathroom sink unit, this woman’s DIY hair extensions look both impressive and alarming. 5First, she collects the stray hairs into a zip-lock bagCredit: cocolee379/TikTok The job isn’t as simple as just...
    OK, here’s a pop quiz for you: what do your hands, an eggplant, the floor of your shower, and the Pyrex dish you baked lasagna in last night all have in common? That’s right, those are all things you can safely and effectively clean using Scour Cleaning Paste from Humble Suds. And you can add tile and grout, the oven, apples, your feet, plates and silverware, and, of course, the kitchen sink to that list. Humble Suds Scour All Natural Cleaning PasteBuy at Etsy$15In fact, just about the only thing you can’t clean with this stuff is untreated wood, as the natural oils will seep in and leave a stain. But how much unsealed wood do you really have around the home, anyway? Scour is so safe because it is made of things that are easy to pronounce and not frightening, things like sodium bicarbonate (AKA baking soda), castile soap (AKA hydrolyzed coconut, jojoba, and olive oils), vegetable glycerin (again, a plant-derived oil), and orange and lemongrass oils. In fact, that’s the entirety of the ingredients. Spread out and scrubbed...
