Women cannot normally stand when they urinate anyway. Most men stand. It's how our bodies are built.

You can pee in a toilet standing up without... difficulties? 8|

I'd say that you should sit to pee. Not only does it help your bladder eliminate all its urine, but it also helps prevent urine from running on other parts of your body accidentally.

I know a boy who pees sitting down. Now that is weird.

hey, I have an uncle (by marriage he he) who sits to pee, and I remember that one time in the middle of the night he went in to pee in the dark and started making a fuss. Apparently he had inadvertnantly been shooting through the opening between the seat and the pot, and when it hit his leg, he started yelping...LMAO

So, hey...I wouldn't know HOW to stand to pee, being female, but I DID hear (a long time ago) a theory that the accumlated sitting time women get while peeing contributes to our longer life expectancy...who knows.

OMG when I was little I wanted to pee like a boy! I grew up around boys, I have 2 brothers. I use to actually try to do it. It was difficult being little and all. Geez werid how I remember that. Oh and just to add, I wanted to have a hair cut like a boy so I got my brothers hair clippers and shaved my hair! HEHE how foolish of me. I was only like 5!

Man that's crazy about sitting to pee may contribute to our longer life expectancy. Imagine that. I think if I ever have a son I will teach him to pee sitting down as well. Laughing Maybe that friend of mine and your uncle know what they're doing after all Wink

I, too, TRIED to pee like a boy. I brought my mom into the bathroom with me and said, "Look I can pee like daddy!" She just laughed and said that if I ever made a mess trying to do that that I'd have to clean it up. I wasn't very good at it so I never tried again Very Happy

When I was little, I used to pretend to pee like boys all the time because I wanted to be just like my older brother. As time went on, I realized how hard this feat was and resorted to sitting.

I'm sure sitting is best, but if you are standing/hovering it won't really make that much of a difference in my opinion. In certain situations such as public bathrooms, sometimes the hover is a much healthier option.

am I the only one that's peed in the shower?! lol. I remember when I was little (before the hair growth hormone kicked in) peeing in the shower, with my legs together, peeing straight out like a boy! I was, for some reason, very tom boyish. Even though I didn't know my father and had two sisters.

it does feel like I empty my bladder better when completely squatting, like in the woods. But when I do it in the shower, it just never seems empty...

I physically cannot pee standing up. I can hover if I don't want to sit on the seat (public toilets!), but I heard from my doctor that if you don't sit you can't empty your bladder properly.

yeah, thats what the links said in deegreens post, that you have to stop the stream before it loses power to avoid dribbling.


I actually stumbled upon something about how humans are designed to squat and not sit and that it is healthier to do so when passing stools. google squat toilet and you'll get an abundance of info and pics. seems to make sense to me but I'm set in my ways.

Hi Everyone, some men have to sit down to pee, this can be put down mostly to the positioning of the eye of the penis, it might not be dead centre and therefore can emit on a bad angle, 90degree 45degree 25degree etc. Makes a mess if you don't sit down. Also narrowing of the orafice can lead to double streaming. Hope that clears up why some men sit instead of standing. Cheers Remus

Peeing by sittting actually helps
Sitting to pee actually makes you feel good.....The process in itself is titillating for men....imagine lifting the track suit pant from the sides,then pulling the underwear to the side and taking out the hose pipe to do the thing....isn't that romantic enough?My wife loves to see me pee sitting........
