  • Studies regularly find shocking levels of faecal bacteria on all sorts of surfaces in public places and around typical homes, so that indicates you're fairly normal in being a dirtbag with poor personal hygiene habits.

    You could safely eat your own shit if you wanted to; any pathogens in the faeces are ones you already have, so recycling them to the upper end of the digestive tract isn't going to give you a disease or make you any sicker.

    Leaving aside the aesthetic benefits of removing smelly crap from your hands, washing your hands after a bowel movement is primarily a benefit to others. It's entirely possible for people to be asymptomatic carriers of diseases and for their poor hygiene habits to spread the illness to others - Typhoid Mary is probably the best known example.

    It's obviously highly unlikely that you're a typhoid carrier, but it is possible that you've had food poisoning of one sort or another in the past, and while your immune system dealt with this efficiently enough that you didn't experience any serious symptoms, you passed the illness on to others by touching things or handling food with a hand that was contaminated with your stool.

    Not washing your hands after a bowel movement is just a couple of steps less antisocial than the idiocy of walking around in public without a mask and coughing or sneezing in the proximity of others when there's any possibility at all that you might be infected with SARS-CoV-2.

    • Also when you flush fecal bacteria go all over the bathroom and on you anyway. There's no getting away from it. Like you said there's shit on everything.

  • This is just straight up unhealthy, as when you don't wash your hands germs and bacteria spread to everything you touch. You could be getting yourself or others sick.

  • Your hands shouldn't be back there in the first place. Just stand up when you're done and go about your day.

  • Yes, it's normal for certain groups and religions. Those that don't use toilet paper and have a hand cut of as a punishment spring to mind!

  • I mean I always wash after pooping. Just the way I was raised I suppose. If at home I rarely do after peeing. Guess I'm just gross like that

    • I do the same for the peeing at home. Fecal matter is dangerous but urine is less so. I'm also a male so I just need to fiddle with the zipper.

  • At home, yes. In public I wash my hands as a common courtesy to other peoples health. That being said i dont wash my hands for just pissing. Because how much worse is my hands just touching a zipper and a clean undergarment? Also I'm pretty sure the groin area is the most washed area on the male body.
