There's Peeing and Pooping in This Story ~ Obscura Lupa

With rare exceptions, one or more of my characters will pay a visit to the smallest room. I'm in good company. Stephen King characters peed and pooped. Michael Crichton characters peed and pooped, especially in Pirate Latitudes. Oskar had problems with incontinence in the first chapters of Let The Right One In.

My characters pee and poop. It could be that my own toilet training journey was so traumatic in parts that I can't relate to a fictional character who doesn't pop off to the loo, or occasionally have an accident like Christopher in The Curious Incident of the Dog at Nighttime.

Who knows. Everyone's views on this are going to vary. For most it is not their #1 or #2 concern.
