It's a perfectly serious question.

Well, ask yourself howcome it's known that loss of bladder and
bowel control under traumatic circumstances is a fairly well
accepted given? Obviously, a lot of people have volunteered the
information over the years, or responded positively when asked
directly or indirectly.

Would I expect _everyone_ to volunteer the information? No. But
again, even that would depend on the particular circumstances.
An abductee could say, for example, that "the next thing I
remember is waking up in my bed at 4am. My underclothes were
completely soiled, so the first thing I did was take a hot
shower," that sort of thing.

If both male and female abductees are willing to go into quite
detailed accounts of being sexually violated and humiliated,
then bringing up a loss of the bladder or bowels doesn't seem
like such a stretch. Embarrassing is embarrassing. In fact,
Spielberg used it to rather dramatic effect in the opening
scenes of CE3, if you remember. Was it merely artistic license,
or did he pick it up in the literature, or perhaps in
conversation with Hynek?

I was simply curious as to why it seems to be conspicuous by its
absence in abduction accounts. I'd think being abducted would
scare the crap out of me!
