Bacteria on the beaches? i wonder why........? When i lived down there I saw the most disgusting stuff, medical garbage, syringes, red bags, bandages floating in the water. people would bring their little ones to the beach and change the diapers full of feces and when the tide came in would let the dirty diapers float right into the water and pack up and go! The very worst (as if that isn't bad enough) is my nieghbor who would dig a hole for her boys, hold up a towel and let them pee right into the sand! When they got olderthey refused to pee in the sand and she would tell them "go pee in the ocean". I am sure the rest of the people there did it too but weren't quite so open about it. You may think it is a big ocean and it is but if you are in a bay or between jetties you are probably swimming in pee. Ugh!

Honestly, I'd rather pee in the ocean then chance going into a beach bathroom.When the water and pee mix-you don't really get much of it...just enjoy the water with your mouth closed! Growing up my father had a huge sign by our 'pool'...we don't swim in your toilet-don't pee in our pool...Pools and Oceans..big difference. As for changing diapers....that's disgusting.

I had a boyfriend who loved when I peed on him. Have to admit it was a real turnon for me too.

Not true at all...as a member of beach management for 25+ years. We would never let any of this happen.
