I watched a few movies of women peeing. It seemed none of them spread their lips to pee. They just let it find its own way out and got pee all over their labia. Most of them did not even wipe it off after. This seems so gross to me. Why wouldn't you hold your lips apart and when done wipe off the end of your urethra?
Actually when you sit down it spreads open for you. Yes I wipe after I pee and I carry some handy wet wipes...hell, I even wash my hands afterwards. I hope you wash your hands after holding your member when you pee.
What kinda movies are you into? I like the fact that you're using all of the technical terms too! Ok, no it is not considered "normal" to hold your lips apart (but if it floats her boat then no harm no foul)...the only time your hands go down when there on the toilet...is to wipe. Heck sometimes I even go crazy and wash my hands! ;o)
Well for starters we don't want p*ss all over our hands, why would we put our hands down there when we are peeing? And it's the movies, they probably weren't really peeing so they forgot to act out the wiping. I don't know any girl who doesn't clean up down there after using the bathroom.
It is a very good question. Sometimes, people just have to pee when there's no paper available. e.g. Camping, road side emergencies, after the nightclub closes for the night or when attending outdoor concerts with rediculously long queues, whatever. Emergencies happens. Men aren't too inconvenienced when they have to pee outdoors because the male urethra projects a tidy stream of urine naturally, so there's no inconvenience, and no need to mop up afterward, and believe it or not, the female urethra can do this too, with a little training and practice. It's sometimes called the 'standing pee' technique, despite the fact that it doesn't really matter if you're standing or squatting or sitting. It definitely won't work if the labia are getting in the way, and some women will need to use fingers to spread their lips wider than their natural separation in order to preserve the integrity of the stream and minimise self-wetting - this being one great advantage of doing this. Another great advantage of projecting a stream away from you when squatting outdoors is that the stream doesn't land between your feet, so there's less splatter to get your feet and shoes wet. Some women will only do it when they have to (i.e. emergencies) but some women will choose to do it more frequently - whenever they want to minimise self-wetting or to pee in a neat and tidy stream for convenience or even have fun with target practice! It's a survival skill that should be taught at girl-scouts. You might not choose to do it every day, but it's a useful skill to know when it matters. (It is also a a great party trick if you want to trick your girlfriends into thinking it is a guy in the loo at home, or if you want to use a urinal skillfully.)
