Yep! Without strong pelvic floor muscles, you wouldn't be able to squeeze toothpaste from a tube with your lady bits and hit something 20 yards away, lol! (This is what I've heard anyway, probably urban legend, never felt the need to try it myself)

Yeah, that's what we ladies want to squeeze with our PC muscles, lol. Toothpaste. What a waste.

IMH it is usually called bathroom when you are at home or at a friend's or relative's home. But in a public establishment it is called a restroom.

You can say whatever you wish but why have to declare where you are going in the first place. Just a simple "excuse me" is sufficient or just walk away and visit the throne room. Don't forget to take the Charmin.

That's all well and good but what about the question "Excuse me, but where is the .......... ?" (Fill in the gap)

If you were to ask a Yank where the toilet was, we'd give you a funny look and tell you it was in the bathroom.

I would ask "Where is the ladies' room" If its a man asking, it would be "Where is the men's room"

It's also the way you get UTIs ladies, at least if you do it a few too many times!

lol, when i was in America i asked someone where the toilet was!!!! I got a very strange look and she said 'toilet whats one of them?"
I was like "you're kidding me, right?"
So i said i need to go for a wee!!! Ah, restroom she said

Jeez, we got there in the end, but a toilet is a toilet, not a room where you rest.
At least in OZ they know what a toilet is.
