My (unwashed) hands are clean.

I have become adept at urinating without touching anything. Do I still need to wash my hands?

I use shod feet to manipulate the lid and handle of the toilet; I open the door with a be-shirted hand; and a hooked thumb parts my garments, which in turn support and direct my "equipment" (if that's too vague, I don't mind going into detail). In short, I don't touch anything in the bathroom--including myself--so is it still hygienically necessary that I wash my hands? I'm leaning towards no, but certain friends are emphatically pushing yes.
By the way, I wash my hands before I eat and after I defecate (I'll let you know if I find a way to do that hands-free). I hope it's clear that I'm male.
