Re: Sit Down!!!! (mens toilet habits)

Oh now I see - I have a huge urethra. That will be an excellent dinner conversational topic without wishing to be boastful .
This thread just gets better and better.

Men can't pee properly while sitting. Anatomy.
Women sit because they have to, a toilet is designed for women. (and for men who do serious business)
More details here, but it's true.

Another bugbear with me is when guests come and decide they need to do a number two. Why the hell do they have to use the toilet brush to aid the passage of the solids down the toilet??

I've had to replace SEVEN brushes since I came here because of the unsuitable (and decidedly sticky) bristle state of the brush after it's impromptu use as a poo poker.

For God's sake!!!

Do you mean just over a toilet or into a urinal?

Sober, over a toilet: was just kinda boring. Just make sure all clothing is out of the way.

Slightly tippsy, urinal: required a fair amount of effort, since I was too short and had to leap around in order to reach it properly. Not the easiest thing.

A friend of mine lost a hefty bar bet to a woman claiming she could pee in a cup placed on the floor while standing. She reached under her skirt and did something up there, and the pee trickled down her leg, off her toe, and into the cup.

Re: Sit Down!!!! (mens toilet habits)

while we're on the subject, any men here mastered the art of the walking pee? basically being able to walk along the road/pavement and being able to direct your stream to the side? harder than you'd think...

Never tried that!

As kids my brothers and I were masters at peeing in moving cars- parents can only stop so many times on a long roadtrip. The only b!tch was that little kids bladders hold a lot of pee and sometimes the recipient container was just a little too small .

Re: Sit Down!!!! (mens toilet habits)

Hi,

Found a topic near to my heart....my father had polio in both legs, so sitting was a real hardship for him, but he did. He said it was the least he could do for his darling wife as it does splash sometimes.

So, when I was engaged I told my husband, he said it was the least he could do as well, so he sits, and it's wonderful.

How demeaning to wipe up yellow spots, or sit near them.

Re: Sit Down!!!! (mens toilet habits)

I can think of one experience where I definitely would have preferred if the man had not sat down to pee.

A few years back I was at the movies with a friend on a Thursday morning seeing Brokeback Mountain.

As it was the 10am showing the theatre was virtually empty. My friend and I sat in the two seats right at the front row (we were there with our babies so had planned to put them on a rug on the floor in front of us). There was an older man sitting across the other side of the cinema, also in the front row, closer to the entrance/exit.

The movie had been playing for an hour or so when my friend nudged me and discreetly pointed towards this older man. When I looked over, I saw he was sitting with his legs open and a stream of pee was cascading down onto the carpetted floor. There was so much it was literally bouncing back up off the floor and spraying all over the place.

We were both so shocked we didn't know what to do. We debated for a while as to what course of action to take and decided we would let the staff know after the movie so they could attempt to clean it up.

Towards the end of the movie the guy started peeing on the floor again. This time we openly stared at him, and coincidentally one of the ushers walked into the theatre at that exact moment. We waved to him and when we got his attention pointed at the guy literally peeing right there on the floor a few feet away from him. He went over and had a word with the man, and then just left!!! Is this some regular occurrence which warrants nothing more than a quick chat? Why didn't they ask him to leave, or at the very least use the bathroom?

Moral of the story, NEVER EVER put anything on the floor in the cinema.

I used to stand up and pee but lady of the house forced me to sit down. My snake is so long that it touches the dirty toilet water. Now I just coil my private part before sitting down Time consuming but what can I do?
If you were right then peeing while standing would cause no splash!

Re: Sit Down!!!! (mens toilet habits)

I never ever sit on the public toilet seat. This is just gross!

Don't tell me, as a men, it is emasculating to sit to pee.

If your manhood ''stand'' on this position..... You should have much more then that to feel man about...

Standing to pee to feel like a man..... It's kind of flushing it down the toilet.... no?

Re: Sit Down!!!! (mens toilet habits)

This whole thread has forgotten one important point: people should close the lid before flushing!
Research has been conducted, and found that flushing with the lid open results in particles of urine and faeces to be spread around the bathroom ... including onto the bathroom mirror!
A second important point is why people feel the need to turn on the light in the toilet late at night ... do you need to see to drop that depth charge on target, when sitting? Or do you need to see to wipe your bottom?
Urine on seat in women's toilets ... possibly a woman who normally uses an asian-style toilet, perched on the seat and squatting? In Australia there was an advertising campaign to educate people from Asia that you sit on the seat, which horrified some people - coming into contact with a place that has held somebody else's bare buttocks? Disgusting!

Any man who cannot accurately urinate while standing needs to take a good, hard look at himself ... and go practise outside on a snowy night, to see exactly where his stream goes!
When a man does sit to do 'serious business', usually they will have an anatomically better pose: leaning forward, forearms resting one knees (raised by pointing the toes) while holding the newspaper open. This position straightens the bowel, allowing for better 'clearance'. It is similar to the position required for asian pit toilets, which have the same benefit.

Finally, on train toilets ... the most challenging was in India, which was a full stainless steel asian toilet (even the 'starting blocks' were made of stainless!), with only a single handle onto which to hold. Particularly challenging around a corner on rough sections of track, especially if a prior visitor had failed the challenge and 'lubricated' the starting blocks ... After that, any western train toilet is a piece of ****!

Re: Sit Down!!!! (mens toilet habits)

Why would we have to sit when the alternative is so much easier?

1. Lift lid, Unzip your fly, go fish for your nozzle, pluck displaced hair and discard, aim and relax, squeeze last few drops, shake leg, replace tool, avoid zipper, search for rogue drops and wipe, lower seat and flush.

2. Inspect seat for past residue, wipe knowing that it only spreads it all over the seat, unbuckle belt, undoo trouser button and fly, check the floor for any wet spots, bring trouser down to ankles if floor is clear else up to knee with one hand to avoid it falling down, try to avoid touching the cold inside rim with wrinkle, try to spread legs while manacled to your pants, start praying you dont get any splashback, try to squeeze last few drops in a very confined space, since your sitting down evaluate if you have to go for number 2, get up, get dressed, and flush

Why would I take option 2?

1- Absolutely. Close the lid to flush!


2- Personally I like to know that the job is done.
