Why do we shiver when we urinate?

Coach Deb  asked the Naked Scientists:
Hi Chris and Team

I've been listening to your podcast over here in Toronto, Canada for years now, and I love it. Not only is it entertaining and informative, but it provides a much needed dose of "englishness" for an expat Brit who has been here for 14 years.

My question is:  why do people sometimes "shiver" when they urinate? My 3 year old daughter does it regularly, but sometimes I do too! (And why is it we are always curious & fascinated about all things to do with "ablutions:" ?!).

Many thanks, and keep up the good work.
