Male Rituals


Why do men bother to pee standing up? I know that sometimes it's the only choice, but when you're at home and have a normal toilet, why do you bother standing and risk hitting the seat/floor? Why not sit on the toilet and then you can be sure not to have any misses?

Explain the reason why you stand when using normal (i.e. ones you can sit on) toilets?!

First of all we do so because we can Second, in standing the musculature is naturally relaxed allowing for a complete and satisfying urinating experience.

It is a risk to be sure although generally a low one. The exception being when lint has gotten caught up at the opening of the urethra and before you know it, you are spraying in every direction at once. And as unlike in women, once the dam is opened, it takes a couple of seconds to order their closing, and a couple more before the stream is extinguished, this can make for a ghastly and embarrasing mess. That said, this is almost always preferable over the alternative ... pissing seated.

We do of course, in the normal course of things. And nothing untoward comes from a minor leak. However, all too frequently for my liking, the stream is of sufficient pressure as to angle the penis upward .. not nearly an erection but completely flaccid it is not. The result is to shoot almost straight forward hitting the porcelain directly under the seat, again spraying in every direction. At a minimum, this wets your trousers, perhaps running down the front of the bowl, and there is the back spray which given certain odd seating arrangements I have experienced, can achieve spray into one's face. In very unfortunate circumstances, the stream has threaded the gap under the seat altogether.

Do I really need to continue ...? Do you need to know how we hit the mark with an erection?

Accidents happen, but standing these are less frequent, less harmful, and more readily cleansed.

lol, we're lazy. most of us have been doing it our whole lives, so it's REALLY hard to break habit. besides since we don't sit much we don't think abut hitting the seat and stuff.

Bunny, help me out on this one... I kneel in front. Gets the stream IN the hole. Dad taught me that one.

Sitting is a slightly more problematic position for some of us as that stream can flow horizontaly, especially first thing in the morning, sporting the all too common AM woody, wetting the crotch of the shorts. If you can capture that visual!

It adds an entertainment opportunity to the peeing event, kind of like a water show. We enjoy it more however writting in the snow!

Because they can! Sort of like Edmund Hilary and Mt. Everest (because it is there). To practice their markmanship in case they have to sign their names in the snow! Because they like to hear the sound from on high! So they can lift the toilet seat and leave it up to annoy women! So they know they are peeing instead of pooping! Because they are men, and never do something the easy way if there is a harder way to do it!

Wow. Good question. I guess the only answer I have is "because we can?" I know, typical male answer.

Hmmmmm.....hitting the water is not always the problem greeneyes....sometimes the bounce is the problem. I wish I could be more enlightening on this one.

How about....Standing requires only zip and shoot. Sitting requires zip, drop pants, sit, shoot. It is all about efficiency.

Well the obvious answer is because its fun, you can pee into the water or around the bowl and anyway it an excuse to hold your dick and you know how much we men like playing with our dicks.

Thank You for Your Time and Attention

I do like dad, not like sis. I raise the lid when I piss.

No mess, no worries.

At home
maybe strange to manny but then i go and sit, even for a pee
but when at a public one, i don't often sit on it
But when i was young, i did learn to do it standing up
But i was trained later on to sit lol
(have to clean the mess myself, and doesn't like that)

yesbelg is right on. many of us do sit when at home. but in public it just wouldn't do. got to do it the manly way. at home practicality holds sway. especially with the new low profile toilets that no matter where you aim, you get oversplash on the rim or floor.

interesting question, answered by many already. For me it comes down to speed and confusion. Speed: It is fast to simply unzip and pee. Confusion: if i sit, my body thinks I should be doing more than just peeing and that take more time.....

The two reasons I usually pee standing: faster and cleaner (for me, anyway It is much easier to simply unzip and pee than to: undo the belt, unclasp the button, unzip, lower the pants, wipe the seat with TP for sanitariness, sit down, and only then start peeing. Simple efficiency.

Never argue with an idiot. He brings you down to his level then beats you with experience
