Starting a new movement. Well maybe not a "movement" because I'm talking about number one, not number two.
And while I may be questioning a "standing" order, so to speak, hear me out on this please.
Men can pee standing up, but just because you can doesn't mean you should, and just because you can doesn't mean you have to. Sure it's quicker to just unzip the fly, and for some pretty hard to get up off that toilet, but not every movement is for everyone.
Men should be sitting while peeing. One, it's more relaxing, two it's cleaner. Granted, I'm older and arthritis has set in, but that doesn't mean that everyone can't enjoy a brief sit. Think about it guys, in the middle of the night, with probably one eye open you have to guess if you're making it into the toilet at all. Sitting on the toilet guarantees your aim. Of course it works just as well in the middle of the day.
Then there is the cleanliness issue. How many times men have you walked into a stadium bathroom, or a bar bathroom, or a restaurant bathroom, and you're standing at the urinal in everyone else's pee on the floor? If men sat on the toilet to pee you wouldn't have to stand in their pee, and you'd have the privacy of your own stall, while you relax. Not to mention not having to clean the floor in your own home.
Of course this movement would also end the never ending argument, debate, with our female significant others, on leaving the toilet seat up.
So in a nutshell, men need to pee sitting down because it's relaxing, cleaner and relationship saving. Who's with me?
( the poll will differentiate between men and women so that women don't get to skew the vote)
In the middle of the previous century I remember going to the courthouse with my Dad, and the urinals there went all the way down to the floor, and slightly below, having been sunk into the concrete at construction. So it was a lot like peeing outdoors, with little concern for aim, or subsequent sitters. I have often wondered why urinals are never installed in private homes.
As a side note, I also remember the spittoons in the hallways. Yes, I’m that old. There was always about a six foot radius around each spittoon of brown slime because chewers would only vaguely aim their tobacco juice as they walked briskly by.
At home all we had was a wooden outhouse about twenty yards from the back door. It was a two-seater. Complete with wasp nests under the seat board. The men never went there to pee. That was what the great outdoors was for. It wasn’t uncommon for women to take similar advantage of the outdoor convenience, although it involved a different posture.
Ah, the good old days!
It depends, if at a park where there's stainless steel toilets how can anyone blame a man for not making physical contact with the toilet seat?
When at home and the guy is drunk or mostly asleep or any other situation where his aim is off sitting down is the most certain means of accuracy available.
Like every other thing in this universe the best answer is relative and dependent on circumstances.
There's simply no hard rule that applies in all situations.
