    I gotta take a leak

    I've got to take a leak
    Is this a male-only expression, or can women use it, too? do women have other ways to get across the same message? if there are, can you list them?

    I can't say as I've ever heard a woman/girl use that, HKB but it sure is possible. Here are some more similar ones:

    I gotta take a whiz/pee.

    I gotta see a man about a horse.

    Women would say more like:

    "I have to tinkle"
    "Time for a pee-pee break"
    "I have to powder my nose"...
    generally it is not quite the "lady-like" thing to say anything other than excuse me and just go to the bathroom!

    Men are the ones that seem to make more of a production and advise people that they are going to go "shake a lizard", "see a man about a horse" (usually used when they are going outside to relieve themselves), and the "take a leak", "water the garden", etc. etc.
    hth!

    Very funny expression.
    "I gotta take a piss" does this one have the same meaning?
