In my day, boys would say they have to take a whizz, meaning: urinate.
What do teens say today?

It's been a few years since I was around teen boys, but yeah...gotta take a p*** was one in certain company. Also heard someone say they had to drain the (my?) snake (not sure if they got that from their father, or if it's a phrase still in use).

In  mixed company,  some boys who are very polite,  say "tap a kidney,"  but  most use one  of the above phrases.
