I came across 2 webpages about the science of pee shiver.

Link 1 Link 2

I wonder if there any reliable scientific research about this phenomenon. The 2 webpages I have hyperlinked attribute this to ANS(Automatic Nervous System) or sudden decrease of temperature in exposed body part while peeing.

But these 2 are just hypotheses, not proved reseach. Is there any?

  • $\begingroup$ Sadly, nobody really knows why this happens. Interestingly, those 2 links are the only 2 major theories about this :P $\endgroup$ Jun 20, 2017 at 16:05
  • $\begingroup$ @another 'Homo sapien' I think the hypothesis of relating pee shiver to autonomous nervous system is more realistic. What do you think? $\endgroup$ Jun 21, 2017 at 4:38

    $\begingroup$ Yeah, that temperature one does not seem much satisfactory. However, I did not study either of them in detail, so I can't approve any right now...maybe somebody would also like to share opinion ;) $\endgroup$ Jun 21, 2017 at 4:43

    $\begingroup$ Really is there such a phenomenon? I never perceived it yet. $\endgroup$ Jun 21, 2017 at 14:26

    $\begingroup$ @Always Confused Yes, there is. I frequently perceive it. $\endgroup$ Jun 22, 2017 at 3:30
