Some people think men choose to sit down when they pee. But I always knew I was a sit-down pee-er—even when I peed standing up. In retrospect, the signs were obvious: I binged on video games as a kid, which offer few intermissions for relief; I wore sweat-pants, which make it easy to masturbate but difficult to pee; I was uncircumcised; I played youth soccer on a no-cut team. Soon we switched from dial-up to DSL.
One of the great things about having little boys is teaching them to pee standing up. You just take off their diaper and set them free in the back yard for an afternoon. Seriously, they figure out the whole peeing in the bushes thing like how a cat finds their litter box. You envision your son peeing in the urinal next to you at the bar, at the sporting event, or wherever you dream of spending time with your little ones when they grow up.
There is a discussion doing the rounds on the interwebs that has us looking at the men in our life in a whole new light. In a poll of married couples in Japan found 49 percent of coupled up men peed sitting down. In Taiwan in the government even started to promote the practice. Some full time, some just on occasion. Post continues after video.
Which, sure, is normal. Pee sitting down? Men are weirdly defensive about peeing sitting down.
