This is my first time on this site. I am glad there is a name and support for this thing/problem, and a place for me to vent a little.
I got so frustrated today that i searched for this condition. My boyfriend is really open about taking a dump/piss/whatever. He'll do it right next to me when I'm in the shower, which i find unbelievable, and couldn't imagine doing that myself in a million years.
Anyway, whenever i go to the bathroom in my apt, if i'm in there for any amount of time, he'll yell out 'are you pooping??!!' and even come up to the door! He did that to me last night, and then this morning again. This makes me want to cry and kick him in the nuts. One time he even opened the door when I was trying to pee (which i also have an issue with). Since then I always lock the door. And on the rare occasions when I let him have anal sex with me, afterwards he'll try to get me to sit on the toilet in front of him and push out the semen.
I'm so mad and frustrated because he is so very open with his functions, and i'm the opposite. I haven't told him about my anxiety. We bought a house together, and will be moving in next month. Thankfully it has three bathrooms. But still, i'm worried about his harassment. Obviously I need to say something about it to him, but I'm afraid he'll find it funny.
How did any of you broach the subject with your significant other?
I'm still feeling upset, but I feel a little better now, having typed this out.
