If you have to pee when you're outdoors and there's no bathroom, be prepared for anything that could happen. Sometimes, it's hard to find a suitable place to pee in the open. Also, you have to do it neatly, out of sight of others, and leaving no traces behind. By planning ahead, you'll be prepared for any kind of adventure that involves pooping in the open.
Part 1 of 3: Preparing to Go Outdoors
Step 1. Know the rules for defecating
In some areas, defecation in public places is prohibited. You may be warned or penalized for defecating in public places such as city parks or public sewers.
- In some cases, you may be charged with indecent behavior when urinating in a public place. You may also be convicted of sexual harassment.
- It is okay to defecate in public places when camping or climbing mountains. However, you should still use common sense when doing this. Make sure you defecate in a secluded place so as not to be seen by others.
Step 2. Leave no trace
An ethical and responsible way to enjoy the outdoors is to leave no traces behind. This means you shouldn't disturb wild animals, damage the environment, and don't clean up after you go to the bathroom. Therefore, after defecating, you should bury your feces properly
Step 3. Make sure you are ready
If you and your friends are going camping, hiking, or picnicking in the open, make sure you have everything you need ready to go to the bathroom while doing these activities.
- You'll need to bring a small shovel to dig holes, toilet paper, and a plastic bag to place used toilet paper.
- You should also bring hand sanitizer with you.
Part 2 of 3: Open Defecation
Step 1. Choose the right location
Since you'll need to do this in a remote location where the surface can be excavated so that the dirt can be buried cleanly, follow the guidelines below before doing so:
- Choose a place that is hidden and not visible to others, such as behind a tree.
- Choose a spot that is about 60 meters from a water source such as a river or lake, and away from campgrounds or places where there are a lot of people so that other people can't find your poop.
- Find a place with less hard soil.
Step 2. Dig a small hole
This hole is used for defecation. Cats usually dig a hole like this before defecating.
Use a shovel to dig a hole 15 cm deep and 10 to 15 cm wide. The hole should be wide enough so that the dirt can enter completely. The hole should also be deep enough to keep wild animals from getting close
Step 3. Squat down and start to defecate
First of all, get your pants and panties down. You can also take it off and hang it on a tree or bush.
Squat down over the dug hole and begin to defecate. If dirt does not enter the hole, use a stick to insert it
Step 4. Wash the anal canal with toilet paper
You may have seen a movie scene where the actor uses leaves to wash his anal canal. Do not do this if you do not know the type of leaf that is safe to use. Your butt and anal canal may be itchy.
Place used toilet paper in a plastic bag. Close the plastic bag and then put it in another plastic bag so you don't smell the smell. Take the plastic bag and throw it in the trash or when you get home
Step 5. Bury your shit
Dirt should be buried so as not to pollute the environment. When buried, other people will not step on the dirt. The dirt will also not spread disease or bacteria if buried properly.
Cover the dirt with the soil you dug earlier. This can prevent the spread of disease and bacteria
Part 3 of 3: Peeing in the Open for Girls
Step 1. Find the hidden place
Do it behind a rock or tree to maintain privacy.
Don't forget to bring the necessary supplies such as toilet paper, plastic bags, and hand sanitizer gel
Step 2. Lower the pants and panties
If wearing a skirt, raise and roll the skirt under your arms, then lower your panties. If possible, remove pants and underwear to avoid getting urine.
Put your pants and underwear in a dry place or on a bush. Don't put your pants and underwear too close so they don't get wet
Step 3. Squat down with your feet flat on the ground
You may be used to squatting with the soles of your feet, and the feet are quite close together, but this position is very unstable and your knees will tire quickly. Squat down with your feet shoulder-width apart and your feet pressed down so you can do it longer.
When wearing pants, make sure things in your pockets don't fall out when you squat
Step 4. Start urinating
Push hard at the beginning and at the end to get urine out profusely. Some women use one hand to open the labia to open the urethral opening. This can also be done by opening the legs wider.

Step 5. Wash with toilet paper, facial tissue, or a wet towel
If you have a plastic bag with you, put a used tissue in it. Bring a plastic bag and throw it away when you get home or camp. If you don't have a plastic bag with you, throw away the used tissue where you pee.
If you have to change a sanitary napkin, put the used one in a plastic bag and throw it in the trash. If you use a tampon, the tampon will not break down and the blood will attract wild animals. Therefore, tampons should be put in a plastic bag and then thrown away
Step 6. Raise the pants and panties
Alternatively, if you're wearing a skirt, lower it down and make sure the skirt doesn't go into your underwear.
