There was a FASCINATING thread on mumsnet last week that one of my friends alerted me to, I have copied parts of the thread below for your enjoyment, the full thread is here;
Do you dunk your penis?

I considered name changing for this, but, fuck it.
We have a dedicated post-sex cleanup area on the bedside table. A box of tissues, a small bin, and a beaker of clean water for temporary cleaning/dunking while the bathroom is occupied by me.
Apparently our penis beaker is strange and not the done thing.
Does everyone else just lay there in a sticky post coital glow until morning? Really?
This was rapidly followed by the following 1001 responses, yes, seriously, 1001, the default limit the system can handle and it went viral, made the newpapers websites all over the world here and here and here and here and even twitter got in on the act
No. We have a normal bedside table. With books and a lamp.
Not a sex clean up bit!
Have never heard of this. And used to be quite the harlot, so really think I would have seen in, if it were a common thing. But maybe my tastes just run to the unwashed…?
Has there ever been a midnight mixup with a glass of drinking water?
Am waiting in fascination to see rest of responses.

No I’m not a troll. I have only ever slept with my H and we’ve always done this! Might have started when we were teens and couldn’t make a dash to the bathroom in our parents houses.
Luckily my drinking water is in a sports bottle!! grin
You’ve just had sex so I assume you are on fairly intimate terms. Even if you have an acid fanjo and his sperm is nine tenths itching powder, surely you can use the bathroom at the same time? You can wash your fanjo in the bath and he can scrub his cock in the sink.
!! No! I bidet and he showers in the same room together at the same time!!
if we can be bothered
I’d hate to get the spermy beaker mixed up with the squash beaker in the middle of the night

I don’t think he wants to spring off the bed but doesn’t want to sit there sticky, so I dash off to pee while he does his temporary clean. I am sure at least one other person will come along and say they do something like this, I am sure.
OP your penis dunking bedside beaker is odd.
You see another day and I’m blessed with another sentence I never thought I’d say.
I love MN.

I really thought if I was going to find anyone who agreed with me it would be on mumsnet. Sigh.
I refuse to believe not one other person cleans up while still in bed. Maybe not a beaker but a bowl? Baby wipes?
No dunking beaker in our house, we must be scummers. I’m fascinated to know how you discivered this wasn’t the done thing? Have you been discussing this in real life Sara?

It was him warning his mate not to make squash in said sex beaker that outed us IRL. So if he gets stick it’s his own fault. I used it as my pee beaker while TTC too, poor, abused beaker.
No never heard of this and how often do you wash the beaker? Do you put it in the dishwasher?
Do you have it all on a tray covered with a small cloth and uncover it in a manner of a priest uncovering the communion wine & wafers?
