What Women Are Actually Doing in the Bathroom


It’s an old cliché, but one that persists. Why do women take so long in the bathroom?

Results may vary. Sometimes I’m in and out; sometimes there’s some serious maintenance to be done. I’ll admit to brushing my teeth in the shower and doing lotion/facecream application outside of the loo, in the bedroom, instead. But what’s taking so long? Unlike dudes, we’re not masturbating in there. (Usually.) Instead, women have to make themselves Presentable.

This could involve:

  • Showering/washing body (WITH a washcloth, come on people)
  • Conditioning hair
  • Shaving legs
  • Using an exfoliating body scrub
  • Shaving armpits
  • Washing face
  • Brushing teeth
  • Tweezing brows
  • Examining pores
  • Drying hair
  • Styling hair
  • Peeing
  • Crapping
  • Changing tampon
  • Changing pad
  • Removing, washing, re-inserting Diva Cup
  • Moisturizing
  • Applying makeup

What about you? What are you doing in there?
