Wash Hands After? How Backward is the World?

I'm sure this has already been asked a hundred times, I did a search, but nothing turned up. I don't think I know how to use search properly. Anyway...

Why is it that we wash our hands, and are expected to wash our hands after we use the bathroom? We bathe, wash our junk, wrap our junk up in underwear, put pants on top of the underwear - our junk never comes into contact with the world.

Until we use the bathroom. Then we touch ourselves with our hands, which have been in contact with the world and all it's cooties all day. Now our junk has touched the world.

This just seems backward to me. Shouldn't we wash our hands before we pee?

I think men should wash their hands before touching their man parts, and after, it makes sense. Women do not have this issue.

An ex of mine found a way round this by always going commando and using a zip / trouser manoeuvre to move stuff to enable non touching. Not sure if this is possible for all men or not but hygiene matters.

Even if you washed your hands before you still will have to after using the bathroom. Because of sweat and skin flakes.

LoL.

Thanks for your creative presentation of an original thought. Perhaps you're on to something and viruses can be spread this way.

There is one place where it happens the correct way that I know of.

Casino dealers (I'm a poker dealer) pretty much as a culture wash their hands first thing when they walk into the bathroom.

Seeing people touch chips and money, pass those chips to one another, always through your hands as a dealer, it becomes apparent how frequently we trade creatures.

All dealers hope that everyone washes their hands after they pee. It's kind of weird.

I can understand what you're saying but just think about how many times we probably touch our faces in a day without washing hands. That's worse than touching your downstairs with dirty hands I think.

It just depends on how dirty your hands are prior to going to restroom. The point of washing afterwards is to wash off any feces, sperm, menstrual blood or anything else that may have been acquired during bathroom experience to prevent it being spread to the outside world.

Women's bathrooms are the dirtiest and men's are the ickiest. Pick your poison. Piss,sperm and feces of men's restrooms vs. rotten menstrual blood, sperm(guess how it gets there), and feces of women's.

No wonder some people can't use public restrooms. They really are gross.

I say just wash your hands before and after if you want to be the cleanest possible. Try and use tissue when touching yourself to wipe etc. and avoid door handles as much as possible.

You can't really escape it.

Don't sit on or touch public toilets / door handles etc. also choose which public rest rooms are used wisely. If we are in a city, we know which restaurants and department stores have decent clean public restrooms.

Carry and use antibacterial hand wipes and hand sanitizer, use even after washing hands.

Some women's restrooms are pretty gross but one thing I will say is that if you have a pub or whatever else and choose not to put in a tampon machine in you are kicking yourself in the foot.

Drunk women whose periods just started with no tampons=disaster waiting to happen.

The worst in men's restrooms is piss on the floors, sperm, and the explosive diarrhea that sometimes sits in the toilets.

Pretty much all public restrooms are gross and have to be cleaned regularly.

I am super hygienic and always hoped those self cleaning bathrooms would become the standard, everywhere. I am sure somewhere in Japan they have this covered.

If only I could rule the world it would be super clean and sparkly.

A place that is super clean makes me anxious and uncomfortable. Any environment in which any small change disrupts the entire order and requires immediate attention and energy to maintain that order makes a slave of the person who lives in it.

I try to harden my junk in the fire, so to speak. Wash before I pee? LOL, yeah right. Unless I am afraid of an STD on my hands.

The germophobe crowd....god bless their poor little pea picking hearts.

At home...yes

At work, no. Cleanliness at work should be micromanaged.

My old squad leader used to say, "Slow is smooth, smooth is fast." I don't know how this could possibly relate to this discussion. I think he was remarking about sex.

Agreed, BigFat. I have worked in many a kitchen, and there constant energy must be put into the system.
