Everyone perspires, yes, even you girls. So where does all that fluidy ming go? Hopkins informs us:

The sweat actually sticks to you, it pools on your arms and head. It can pool and get in your eyes, too. If you are running, it does fling off onto the walls and stuff, and then you are cleaning the walls around you. So you have to towel off often to keep it under control.

The interesting part is that the sweat does go into the condensate system that gets recycled. Eventually after the towels dry off and the water is recycled, it becomes drinking water.
