A new survey finds that a couple has six conversations every month while one of them is on the toilet. Ever since COVID-19 toilet taboos have been broken.

  • 64%  said moving in with their partner broke down many of their “bathroom boundaries” prior to cohabitating, the extra time at home together during lockdown may have eliminated the last of them.
  • 70% admitted that taking a bath in front of their partner for the first time happened during the quarantine.
  • 30% admitted to peeing in front of their partner for the first time.
  • Even some respondents admit to pooping in front of their partner for the first time.

Being open in the bathroom is known to increase “bathroom intimacy”. 31% of couples are ok with "toilet talk” 

What couples bathroom arguments, what should or shouldn't be flushed down the toilet?

  • (49%) says they’ve gotten into a disagreement with their partner over this topic.
  • One in two have squabbled over a toilet clog or overflow.
  • Q-tips (14%),
  • wet wipes (14%),
  • intimate wipes (13%),
  • condoms (13%),
  • dental floss (12%)

These are among the most divisive items in the flush-or-not-to-flush debate.
