This is an entertaining social behaviour issue. However, once I’d seen two or three I wasn’t curious any more. Moreover, same with the first time I saw a girl’s genitals at about age 8 – one look and most of my curiosity were satisfied. However my country is phasing out trough urinals for toddlers and replacing them with more private stalls, and I’m not sure what’s driving that change. Moreover the trough urinal had some interesting behavioral aspects and often came up as a problem in the personal growth groups I used to facilitate. The guy’s body would tense up and freeze if there was someone else there so they couldn’t get the urine flowing. The group’s remedy which worked well was to make them piss alongside non-threatening group members until it was no longer a big deal, then deliberately challenge themselves by using public toilets in show-all mode.
Urinals For Toddlers
The other exciting thing is that trough children urinals give many men a false idea of how big an average penis is and make them think their own is undersized. That’s because guys who are well endowed don’t usually mind others seeing them, and their male ego often means they stand slightly back to allow other men an easier peek. Guys with a little penis more often hide in the corner. The result – most of the penises other men are ALLOWED to see in public urinals are slightly larger than average, and their own doesn’t compare well.
When I was growing up, all sporting venues, and many other places, had trough urinals. Having other males see one’s penis, and seeing theirs, wasn’t unusual or weird. Without really thinking about it, I knew my little hairless penis would one day be something like the ones I saw at football and basketball games. It was no different, then than knowing I’d get taller.
More On It
If kids today are curious, it doesn’t bother me. What does seem weird to me is how males today change with a towel wrapped around them or go into a toilet or shower stall to put on a swimsuit.
When I was a kid growing up in the 70’s and 80’s, privacy wasn’t a thing between males. Regardless of age. You did not expect to care, not even a little if another male could see your dick or your butt. And the differences between bodies take in stride. Somewhere along the way, our culture shifted. This set the same obsession with privacy and deep insecurities about our bodies as women have always had. Men did learn to be ashamed to change clothes openly in the locker room. To use a private stall shower rather than an open gang shower. To be nervous about using a trough urinal. And even to be afraid or ashamed of using a bathroom stall if other men were in the room. I’ve not adopted this new fear and shame drove world.
