Pee shy a.k.a pee anxiety --
You have to pee like a champ....unfortunately, when you get to that public urinal it is to quiet. You fear your peeing sounds will be to loud (echoing throughout the numerous other stalls) so you are unable to release your urine.

A fear that another person is listening to you urinate, your muscles tighten up, no matter how hard you try you cannot urinate.

Mindy's mother asked her why she always pee so much after school. Mindy answered that she can't go in school anymore. She is now pee shy. Her girlfriend Wendy told her that she has been hanging out at her house so much that she caught her dad's genetic disease called stage fright.
