everything shrivelled up in the cold!
Because no one wants to watch another person "release the brown trout", swimmers are usually quite embarrassed about this normal human function while everyone is watching them. To get around this problem, swimmers usually inform their escorts and crew that they must go. The escorts and crew usually politely turn their heads or go to the other side of the boat in order to allow the swimmer a few moments (or minutes) of privacy. Although there are a few isolated cases of curiosity, the crew should create an environment where the swimmer is afforded as much privacy as possible in an open body of water. This privacy is usually not a problem at night, but sometimes a bowel movement comes at the most inopportune times during broad daylight.
So when you're swimming for multiple hours and nature calls......are there any tricks to handling it? WTF do the ladies in one piece do?

Cross country runners are used to nipping behind bushes on cold days etc.. so don't see why swimmers should feel embarrassed, its all part of the game. Parents will know the excited call of a young son 'Hey dad, come and see THIS...'.
