So how about of poll of Ef men. Don't know how to set up a poll. As said, in my limited personal experience, men stand to pee. Really does not bother me in any way whether they do or not- it's just the way it is. I regularly help with xcountry skiing with the local school- takes ages for the girls to go to the loo, due to lots of clothing, etc- boys are very quick as they do not have to undress, it's very obvious. All the boys are done in 5 mins, while it takes 20 mins to get same number of girls through- and the boys always make jokes about why.
Reminds me of my exwife, she ran a play group for children aged 3 to 5.

At that age they often need help to go to the toilet.
One year just before Christmas they were making Christmas decorations with paper and glue and the usual stuff.
My ex-wife came home and said "I wonder how the parents will react when they see some boys have glitter on their manhood?"

Depending on level of sobriety, the sink and balcony also come to mind.
About "the sink and balcony" at the same time?

BTW, I find it hard to read a book when standing?

What about the toilets where you stand to both pee and dump?

A friend in Italy has one of these in his garage, and it doubles as a shower!

Let me put my wolli's hat now,

My first week in Istanbul, I was send with a student and an other teacher to Eminonu to collect some fabrics for the upcoming fashion show. Everything was fine and facisnating for a fresh newcomer in the oldest city of the modern world.

Fast forward, I had to pee.

We are in the Eminonu bazar, no toilet in sight. We found one on the third floor of a building who probably saw better days in the time of the sultan. I went in with relief and stopped in shock when I saw this toilet on the ground.....

Now, believe me, squatting with a pair of jeans is surely a task a very, very flexible person could achieve. I wasn't ready to test my flexibility so I dcided to remove my jeans and make the best out of it because frankly, my eyes were turning yellow and couldn't hold any longer.

Now, imagine a girl taking off her shoes carefully, and standing on them (because there was no way I was going to put my foot on that floor) removing her jeans, putting back her shoes and praying to aim that very weird hole.

I'll tell you what? I had to do it in these kind of toilet a few times in my 4 years in Istanbul and there is no trick to avoid the pee splashing on your shoes, legs, butt.

I learned to hold it for a very loooooong time.

Very common for public toilets in France. Now you try one of those with a all-in-one ski suits and icy ski boots

Re: Thank god! German court rules that men can urinate while standing

teambuilding day in amsterdam. so that means hiring a boat and get on the canals. lots of beer involved. hours ticking away.

hey guys can we stop under this bridge? half of the people on the boat start peeing overboard. the other half has to wait even longer and gets to look at a row of asses in the dark while listening to an echoing harmony of piss streams hitting the water. glorious!

yeah cant say i envy women much...

There is a trick, Nil. Exactly NOT to hold it for too long so you can control yourself more...TMI, but it's still Friday

But then again, who needs to use this kind of toilet in other situation than after a beer when peeing becomes an emergency?

Re: Thank god! German court rules that men can urinate while standing

Let's have a scientific perspective at all this with following parameters: maximum flow rate, voiding time (the time that it takes to pee), and post-void residual volume (the amount of urine remaining in the bladder).

Comparing sitting vs. standing, the meta-analysis showed that men with lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) were able to empty their bladders more completely, leaving 25 fewer milliliters of urine in their bladders. Men with LUTS also had a stronger flow and took 0.62 seconds shorter to urinate, but these two results were just shy of statistical significance.

This is what I call rear science.

I find showering 5 times or more just to pee a tad extreme.
