    Always before and after. Apart from good hygiene there is a strong link between oils and grease and testicular cancer. Which is why you shouldn't keep an oily rag in your pocket.
    A lot of engineers in the past used to.

    Wash hands before and use the hand sanitiser after.

    The properties in used engine oil can be absorbed through the skin which over a prolonged period can increase the risk of skin cancer. That's why all mechanics now wear latex gloves. An oily rag in a pocket is not in contact with the skin, unless you have a hole in your pocket and your going commando, and it wouldn't specifically cause testicular cancer. I heard this rumour when the connection between oil and cancer was first made. I think it's another example of people taking legitimate facts adding extreme circumstances and coming up with urban myths.

    To answer the question I wash my hands before and after.

    Wash hands? Far too time consuming. Mole grips for the win.

    No urban myth mate. It was HSE advice when I worked in the factory. A lot of mechanical engineers would carry a oily rag around in their pockets. Especially in the boiler and compressor room. The oil the rag soaked up ultimately soaked into the engineers pocket lining and underwear, causing the incidences of cancer.

    Normally, pull the gloves off, have a pee, wash hands, gloves back on, back to work.

    Emergency pee - pull gloves off, find one of the 2 litre bottle with the top cut off, pee, tip it down the drain, gloves on back to work.

    If it is one of those situations where your hands are stinking, there is no method of washing hands, then do the pincher pull to get it out, aim roughly whilst danglin, use cleanest fingers to give it a shake before the arse out/trouser pulling technique to throw it back inside. Back to work.

    Public peeing is a different ball game altogether. No skin contact with doors, handles, anything, have a pee and escape hopefully whilst someone else has opened the doors without having to touch the sinks, taps, etc where thousands of grotty hands with penis residue have been. I HATE public toilets, but enjoy the pee itself.

    Most enjoyable pee is always a public one, where the chewing gum and urinal fresheners are restricting outward flow and in a valiant effort you can almost fill the urinal to overflowing point. Have never quite managed to spill though. lol
