I'm just curious to see what the ratio is for people that feel it's necessary or not to practice a healthy personal hygiene activity and to get their opinion on the matter.
Me personally, I wash my hands every time I use the restroom regardless if I go #1 or 2. I feel that this is not just for my health, but for the health of everybody around me at home or in public.
I've noticed that when I'm out in public such as a restaurant or bar, several people will use urinals or the stalls and just get up and walk out while not even acknowledging there are sinks in the restroom. These people do not realize that they are taking urine and fecal matter out of the restroom with them and everything they touch will then be contaminated with their bodies garbage and germs.
I'm not sure if this is a matter of ignorance just disregard for other people.

With that in mind, let me know your opinion on the matter, fecal or otherwise :P.

My answer to this is, if you don't wash your hands after using the bathroom, fuck you.

I don't know who the fuck is narcissistic enough to think "oh my hands are clean enough" or "I don't need to wash my hands".

The only time I have not washed my hands are when it looks like someone shit or pissed all over the sink, then I do a good hand sanitize until I can get somewhere and wash my hands.

Also anyone remember the old gbatemp thread about how a lot of people feel it is okay to pee in the bath (not the shower)?

Yeah I wash my hands. Don't do the full surgeon or mechanic scrub routine every time (too much time, too little gain, my long suffering skin also would take a greater pounding than it already does as I tend to only use swarfega). Many times I wash them before the event as well, even when they are not notably dirty.

Only time I don't is if I am out and about and have to take a piss up a tree or something (rare but if I am out wandering around the country for hours, or have been holding it in, forget and take the dog for a few hour wander) and have no means to wash them with.

Can't say that I do. I remember Hadrian's (or maybe he was Gaydrian at the time) shit in a bag thread but don't recall that one.

I thought about adding a similar option to the poll about this but didn't want to make a 100 option poll for the topic.
I've also noticed that people who don't generally wash their hands will "half ass" wash them by turning in the water and barely wetting their fingers and then dry them off if someone else is in the room. Literally, turn the water on and off in a second, no soap. I'm not saying people have to get the Brillo pads and bleach out everytime, but damn, use soap and make an attempt at rinsing the fecal matter and piss off your fingers at least.

Only time I don't is if I am out and about and have to take a piss up a tree or something
I used to be the same way, but now I bring handi-wipes and bottles of water with me everywhere. Especially if I know I'll be out for a long time.

If you have piss and shit on your fingers then you have gone wrong somewhere.

As for carrying stuff around I would rather carry tools, or walk out with just my keys. Part of that tool setup is some hand sanitiser but that is mostly for when I experience a critical failure of a dog bag or slice myself up and need to clean it up prior to getting back to the house.

Pretty much all the times yes.
Occasionally skipping if I'm at home and not manipulating anything or eating after, say, peeing.
Though most of the times I would at least rinse quickly just from force of habit.
I can't see how you wouldn't manipulate anything after using the restroom. You don't touch the light switch, toilet handle, your clothes, door handle, your skin, cellphone, tv remote, laptop, nothing? Even if you didn't touch your privates at all while peeing, there's a good chance some splashed on you. Everything you touch will be tainted. I'm not trying to attack you but I am on the far extreme of this matter and have a zero tolerance policy. :whip:

That would mostly be if I'm in a hurry or in the middle of the night. I will ultimately wash my hands sometime later anyway.
it's not like it takes much time to wash my hands at the end.

I'm not much fan of gross hands anyway, so I'd always wash my hands whether I touch some dirty things.
Most of the times I'd wash my hands first then pee and call it good enough, I usually don't urinate on myself either.
That depends on the moment, but anyway, I don't really need to justify anything. At the end I'll just wash my hands automatically, even if I just did minutes earlier from something else, especially at work.

A better question for this website/forum would be, do you clean or sanitize your controller periodically? If yes, how often?

To answer op question, yes, I wash my hand every time I'm entering my personal space or after touching objects that I don't own.

I always do, but it leaves you with a conundrum after using a public loo. Just how do you leave, without touching the door handle, after all those people who don’t wash their hands :P
If the restroom has paper towels, wash your hands, grab a paper towel to turn off the faucet. Grab fresh towels to dry your hands and use them to open the door. If there is a waste basket, throw the towel away. If no basket, throw them on the floor to let the establishment know that they need a waste basket by the door.
If there are no paper towels, use clean toilet paper or wait by the door for someone to come in and rush out before the door closes.
