What you call the bathroom when you have to go in public, especially if you have to go number 2. You call it a sanctuary because it keeps you safe while you do your buisness. The term was popularized by Marc Elliot, a public speaker with tourettes and an intestinal problem, when his friends came up with a nickname for his special place.

Can be a noun or verb, and called sanctuary, sanc, or sancing.
noun- "Brb, I need to visit the sanctuary."

verb- "I really have to go sanctuary, can you point me to the nearest restroom?"

Best damn show on television. Features the supermegafoxyawesomehot Amanda Tapping as HBIC Dr. Helen Magnus, and is about her and her team being kick ass. The Sanctuary team also includes Will Zimmerman (the ever-pantless Robin Dunne aka Throbin Bum), Henry Foss (Ryan RyRo Robbins), Kate Freelander (Agam Darshi, the Indian goddess of I'm-freaking-gorgeous).

So basically, Magnus and the like live in this huge, fantastic, castle known as the Sanctuary. The Sanctuary is also home to what the team lovingly refer to as abnormals.

Abnormals are basically any type of creatures not found in nature or cooler versions of X-Men.
I love watching Sanctuary because Amanda Tapping is the most perfect human being in existance.

A masterpiece written and sung by Joji (George Miller). Deadass, the best song I've ever heard in my life. No lie, he has the biggest dick in the world.
"Have you listened to Sanctuary yet?"

"Yes, I would suck that man's dick any day."

"With consent tho, right?"

"Of course, I don't suck penis willy nilly!!"
