Okay, I will admit this is pretty much a non intellectual post, but hey why not talk about something which is about the human bodily functions? And as we are at the end of the week, let’s indulge in this just a little.
If you thought that ALL men prefer to stand up whilst they take a piss, well your assumptions may be proved wrong – well that is if you are in Japan. Due to the awesome toilets in Japan ( and in many parts of East Asia) which have heated seats, little bidets which wash your ass and other intimate parts after you do your business, and some even have nice bird chirping sounds, a survey of 300 Japanese men found that around 1 out of 3 prefer to sit down when they chuck a piss. I know 300 isn’t a huge sample, but its a sizable one to go, wow – all my ideas of men standing up to piss have just gone down the drain.
Japanese Internet portal Shirabee recently polled 300 men between the ages of 20 and 69, asking them whether they stand or sit when making a liquid-based bathroom trip. In total, 29.3 percent said they take a seat when taking a piss, with some surprisingly large differences between age groups.
The biggest advocates of sitting while peeing were men in their 30s, with 41.5 percent of them doing so. Next came men in their 20s, with 35.4 percent sitting instead of standing.
A noticeable dip occurred among older men, though. In the 40-49 age bracket, 28.3 percent choose to sit, and men in their 50s were the least likely to do so, at just 18.3 percent. Finally, 20 percent of men in their 60s, the oldest demographic in the survey, are sitters.
Unfortunately, the researchers didn’t ask the participants why they responded as they did, so we’re left to speculate as to why younger men are more likely to take a seat.
I must say, having tried this awesome toilets, I don’t blame men for wanting to sit when they do a whiz..
