FIRST OF ALL : WHY???
SECOND OF ALL : WHOSE?YOURS OR SOMEONE ELSE'S???
THIRD OF ALL : WHY DON'T YOU TRY IT AND THEN LET US KNOW???
Kidding appart:
a) Urine is a sterile solution;
b) I just wanted to let you know this to ease your mind if you already did it...It DOES NOT mean I would encourage drinking it...
c) Please don't!And if you did,and you have any reason to suspect that the person providing the "beverage" might be sick,go see a doctor.
Now I'm just curious:is it for a recipe or a boudoir fetish?

Is there just a chance that this is urine-soaked spam?

Well if you are pinned under a boulder and have to cut off your own arm to survive you might want to try it, but otherwise no.
