Let's Talk Shit | The History of Pooping

Let's Talk Shit | The History of Pooping

Posted January 10, 2017 by

It’s natural, so why are we so hesitant to talk about our bottom business? We have been taught to be ashamed of our foul bowels, so much that now even talking about what happens in the bathroom is oddly frowned upon. Do you ever find yourself wondering why we can’t talk about something that everyone does? 

There is a word for this social fear; corophobia it is the fear of feces, excrement, or defecation. Worry no more proud poopers, we are opening the floodgates and making poo an acceptable topic of discussion in our day-to-day lives. It’s only natural, and you should be at ease in all situations, from pooing in public, to the relieving release at your beau’s house. We’ve got your ass covered. 

For a lot of people, the dread of dropping a deuce can stem from an already present General Anxiety Disorder. This, mixed with the daunting illusion that you’re the only person who ever poos in public can be very harmful to your body, bowels, and even your brain. Diving deeper into the history of time and the toilet, you’ll see that poop wasn’t always something seen as an unmentionable bodily function. Humans have, in the past, valued their poop as fertilizer, medicinal healing, and even some ancient rituals. These were times however that we lived closer to the ground, and relied more heavily on mother earth; not to mention the lack of indoor plumbing. Hygiene wasn’t always something so omnipresent to us, but now in the 21st century, we have access to all types of information about the sweet serenity of sanitization. 

This overwhelming abundance of information has lead us to a constructed reality of what is, and is not acceptable chit chat amongst one another. In other words, we were taught to keep our crappy thoughts to ourselves. It shouldn’t be this way; we should be able to speak freely about our natural bodily habits, and not be ashamed to do a No. 2 in public. And, with the delightful aromas of all natural before-you-go toilet spray, Poo~Pourri, you can poo with pride!
