AVOID THE BACKSPLASH
I'm glad we could all come together as one and talk about poop.
7/24 - Stevie Wonder @ Hollywood Bowl
8/6 - HARD - LA State Historic Park
9/3 - FYF @ LA State Historic Park
I took the biggest poop of my life on saturday, easily 10 Couricks.
that says "can't poop without peeing", not "can't pee without pooping". there is a difference.
I never drop a deuce at Coachella because I eat so little over the 3 days. Gatorade and the occasional Clif Bar get used up totally by my body so the only waste is some whiz.
What comes out when I get back to my normal habits at home is usually scary though that first time on the pot.
->Coachella '05/'11/'13<- @popnwave on twitter.
My group discussed this a lot. Some people were poop free while others were pooping machines. I was very happy with my bowel movements for the weekend, but goddamn I hate this porta potties.
There was shit on the floor. I kept going into ones with shit on the floor. Are people confused or something?
I lucked out in yet almost every porta potty that I went into was fairly clean.
Coming in here whenever I feel the urge to eat something fatty. Skinnychella 2012.
My body recognizes my need to hold it as long as possible, so I only have had to poop Sunday morning each year. I don't mind considering I usually poop once to twice a day. Once for 4 days is pretty damn good.

I tried Friday morning and night, couldn't do it. Not because the portos are nasty, it just couldn't happen, coffee, cigs and all. Of course it waited for Saturday night as I walked back into the fest, the only one I took all weekend.
I've got two fingers in the air, and ya gots to give me somethin to smoke.
8 years, never had to poop inside....
I'm a reasonable man, get off my case.
said never had to poop inside. that leaves everywhere outside to do so...jus' sayin'
every morning at Coachella I had to take my morning dump, which after a night of heavy drinking, I affectionately call my "brew poo." It's part of my morning routine, like brushing my teeth and showering. I poo. Also probably took another dump every day around 5-7pm, just had to find a good break between sets. Throw a couple other random poop sessions throughout the weekend, and you have my Coachella poop schedule. Even got into a couple conversations with some pooping strangers next to me (I didn't initiate any of these poop conversations, but they were funny as fuck). Brought my own TP/baby wipes/seat covers, which made the shitty portapotty situation more tolerable.
Shit, reading this thread makes me need to poop. Seriously. Brb.

It's the heat, and related dehydration.
Dehydration can cause constipation. This is related to your body's natural responses to dehydration, which include conserving water in any and every way possible. Your bowels extract as much water from your stool as possible, resulting in dry, hard feces that is difficult to poop out (and also has decreased volume and therefore takes up less space, so you can hold it in longer...)
Under the second point:
drinking enough fluids is important because dehydration can cause constipation. Try not to drink liquids that contain caffeine or alcohol if you feel thirsty or dehydrated.
On top of that I find the heat really kills my appetite, I really have to force myself to eat anything at all and at most eat 1 meal per day... probably again due to dehydration, hormones released in response to dehydration act to suppress appetitive behaviour because digestive and metabolic processes use water (not just in terms of salivation and glandular release of fluid, but also directly in hydrolysis reactions which are required for the breakdown of carbohydrates, fat and protein).
Eating less food = pooping less poop.
... Whenever I had to I went to the air-conditioned bathrooms that locked and flushed too. It was always a nice break from the festival. No line, nobody ever seemed to use them. I have no idea why, they were literally right across from the porta potties and even had sinks to wash your hands.
I found them my fist Coachella and I go straight for them every year now.
With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams; it is still a beautiful world.
