I use an electric toothbrush but admit I've never had that problem.

I haven't had that issue either - so I think this might just be YOUR problem. I was holding my breath waiting to find out what you were going to say - you just never know what the CC will talk about these days! Ha!

I don't know why, but it does have that effect. Funny post.

I love my electric toothbrush. At first, I didn't like it that my lips were vibrating a bit. I got used to it after a few days, but as for peeing, nope! never had that problem. You should make a video of your pee-pee dance for our enjoyment. Love, Janie

LOL! I've used an electric toothbrush for about 3 years now and I've found my visits to the hygienist a lot easier since. Not encountered the other problems you mentioned though :)

Hilarious! I've used an electric toothbrush for years for the same reason (brushing too hard & wearing away gum tissue and enamel) and it's really helped. But not once has it made me need to "go"! May I make a suggestion? Put a bit less toothpaste on your brush (size of a small pea), and don't close your mouth around the toothbrush after all, but keep your head over the sink to capture whatever spray you still get. I'd rather clean the mirror/sink every day than have the kind of urges you describe; I get them more than enough the rest of the time :)

Surprising effect... a vibrating device makes you pee. FWIW, Google reveals you're not alone.

Well this was certainly an interesting (and entertaining) post! I've used a Sonicare toothbrush for decades (I fact-checked before saying that - came out in 1992) and I can't say I've ever had that problem.

I've never had that problem; I just wanted to say I LOVED your cartoon!!

Ah, the beauty of blogging is throwing anything out there and finding out you are not alone. I adore my electric toothbrush but I don't get that reaction,.Maybe it is more of a guy thing.

PS Glad my post encouraged you to take the leap.

Well yeah if they heard that buzzing in a locked bathroom they might think she was up to something else.

What a curious effect! I used to have an electric toothbrush, but never noticed such a problem. I guess, as usual, my mouth was OPEN. I'm relieved (heh, heh) that this story didn't turn out to be about poop!

When you get older quite a few different things bring on the urge to pee!
By: red Kline on March 27, 2017
Your advice to Mrs. C is brilliant and her reaction is priceless. The entire idea of this has me smiling... and thinking really wicked thoughts. Maybe good you're not gay (you know, that vibrating phallic thing in your mouth making you have to pee). My apologies, I tried to find a way to say that delicately and gave up. Besides you started it!

I do not use an electric toothbrush, but hubby has gum issues like you and does use one. I will have to ask him that. He does not Blog and thinks my blogging is an odd habit, so this question should really convince him we are all nuts.

I knew there was a reason I've not gone to an electric toothbrush
By: Sage on March 28, 2017
Good grief, I would never have thought it. But filed the information away in case it ever comes in useful!
By: Jenny on March 28, 2017
I never used a vibrating toothbrush...not for brushing my teeth (or peeing) anyway. J/K. Or am I?
By: Robyn Engel on March 28, 2017
Maybe you could brush your teeth with your mouth open while in the shower, then with a shower wand (if you don't have a shower wand you should get one...they're great!) you could simply wash down the shower walls. Ta Da! :)

I was going to say something, but PT Dilloway took the words right out of my mouth.

I'm telling my husband what you've discovered about the powers of an electric toothbrush. He has an electric toothbrush and now perhaps a solution to a problem other than gums.

You may have opened a new area of medical research! I use a power toothbrush and have not noticed that condition however. I hope there is no power of suggestion involved.
