That's so funny! My husband just did his first last weekend...and boy was he a big baby about it!
Men are weird sometimes! I guess though, since having a baby, the modesty and self-conciousness factor is a non-issue for me. He still refuses to do a coffee enema. He creases his nose up when I mention it, even when he was in great discomfort!
Oh well, baby steps!
Anyway, I agree that piggybacking the flushes is the way to go...that way one is recovering while the other is in the throes of it all. We have an 11-month-old baby that we must look after as well...so simultaneous flushes are a no go around here.
