He didn`t look like a beggar or a junkie. Although I didn`t pay any special attention to check his clothes/appearance, from what I remember seeing him while crossing the road, he seemed like a well-dressed man (I think).
If he wanted to sell/buy drugs or if he wanted money, he could have waited outside the toilet. He could have followed me back to the tram station if that was the case..

There were three urinal blocks and I was emptying my bladder in the far end block (which seemed cleanest of all, but I think it was the stupidest choice as I was far from toilet entrance ). This dodgy man entered the toilet and was peeing (or maybe was pretending like peeing) in the first block, but his face and shoulders tilted towards me (thats what I felt as I gave a quick glance at my 1 o´clock position when I heard him murmur something). At least he had some decency to respect my privacy by not standing in the block very next to where I was peeing.
Whatever his intentions were, this incident scared the hell out of me. Given I was wearing a rather expensive watch and had some gold jewelry on me might have caused more fear in me.. Anyways nothing untoward happened and I lived to tell the tale.
It sound like a tale I would have forgotten by the time I entered the next tram.

But everybody's excitement level is different. It seems inevitable to me for a guy to take a pee without his dick out (correct me if I'm wrong ) and if he held back as long as you did, he might have had a reason to groan in relieve. You were in the last box, he was in the first, would it have been his fault to be next to you, had you chosen the middle? Wearing rather expensive watches and jewellery is nothing unusual in Switzerland and hardly makes heads turn
I hope for you that this is the worst you will ever experience and you can avoid it by not using public toilets (easy). A safer way is not to mingle with people you don't know (more difficult) - that would mean staying at home and not live in an apartment building. So many weirdos on the way to the mailbox.
There are lots of ways to interpret this. Yours was definitely more exciting and makes a better thread.

One that takes place in a public toilet between two people.
Since when is that illegal?

We aren't in Alabama.

You probably didn't read my original post. I saw this man leaving the toilet while I was waiting to cross the road. So that means he had already peed and was returning back to the toilet after seeing me going in. Not sure of his motive. Maybe he wanted to pee again? whatever.. I can surely avoid using public toilets. I usually use the toilets in pubs/restaurants, but that was not possible because of lockdown. Thanks anyways.

It is a misdemeanour if someone reports seeing sexual activities in a public area, which includes public toilets.

Reporting sexual activities in a public area is a misdemeanor ??

There is Art. 194 and Art. 198 Criminal Code. But I think that would excluded sexual activity in the individual stalls.

@OP,
All these incidents should be reported to police. Period.
Report what exactly? Nothing actually happened.

From my understanding they don't just have to see it but they have to feel offended or harrassed by what they see.

Re: Public Toilets - [shady experience]

When I came here in 1986, the walk along the lake on the right side of the lake (looking out from Burkliplatz) was renowned for a ‚meet-up‘ place for gay guys for years. Guess it was around the time of ‚Platzspiz and heroine’. Then Globus Bahnhofstrasse toilets took that fame. No idea if it‘s still that way, but it‘s not an area that I would choose for a stroll at night, or a pee, even as a woman. That aside, the place you chose to pee is clearly labeled „Pissior“, which would put me off above all

From that link:
<AMAZING, must see!
Zurich is a fairly big city with all sorts of attractions and things to see, but Urinal Pissoir is one of those places that will literally BLOW your MIND.
You wouldn't expect it to be so entertaining when you see it from the outside, but once you go in this small place you are just WOWing all the time. Incredible experience, better than all the famous Night Clubs in the city and it's FREE!
Go there with friends, you will not regret it.>>

So now we have two opinions on this place. Fair and square.

Yeah, this spelling, always confusing.

What's a „Pissior“, ZuriRollt?
