Everyone: How do you pee? Sitting or standing? Which is more comfortable?

Howells Howells 04/28/2011

I'm asking you as I always wonder. Also I have seen girls trying to pee while standing up and it was kinda funny. Some can :) I just sit call me lazy. I don't use public restrooms, only when I really have to and I always go behind doors. But there I never sit of course. So, what about you?

I am a female and I most definitely sit down to pee.

I voted other though, because when I was a little girl, I had a fascination with standing to pee and actually accomplished it after a few attempts by leaning and tilting my pelvis and sort of standing around the toilet awkwardly



I haven't tried since, and I don't really want to-- it's just not on my mind when I really have to pee!


And if you mean crouch above the toilet, so as to prevent sitting on the toilet seat, then I don't do that either. You cannot catch any diseases from a toilet seat.

I sit now, but back in my younger pain free pre-child days I could stand It is to painful for me to try and stand or squat now, I carry baby wipes or sanitizing wipes to clean the seat before sitting if its dirty.

About 4 years ago when camping, I was crouching to pee in the bush and I peed on my big baggy jogging pants, lol.

I was so emberrased when I had to explain to my friends why I was walking back into the tent wearing only underwear. Good times, lol.

I'm female, and I identify as a furry. I don't have a pee fetish or anything, but many furries (and possibly others) will agree with me that sometimes it just feels good to take a squat. *blush*

EDIT: By which I mean, full-on squat close to the ground or grass or floor (shower for me if I do it indoors), not just raise your bum off the toilet awkwardly.

I pee standing up, and I've a good aim, too! I'm surprised, how are we men supposed to hit the smaller targets in life with our dicks, if we can't aim properly with the much larger target of a toilet?

I always sit to pee, even in public restrooms. I use the paper liners if they are available, but I'm not paranoid if they aren't. Peeing standing or crouching is hard. (Thought I would avoid TMI, but then again this entire discussion is about pee )It starts out ok, but then the end trickle always seems to end up on my leg. I have peed standing into a ziplock when on a long car trip but nowhere near a bathroom. That was my mom's answer to little kids needing the bathroom frequently.

If I spread my legs while straddling the toilet, I can pee while standing. It is iffy, though, and the pee might run down one leg.

I went on an Outward Bound type trip for like a month & learned how to pee standing up if I had to. This was a pretty hardcore trip... no flashlights, really cold, possible rattlesnakes & cacti (though it was Winter, so a bit cold for snakes)... So, squatting wasn't desirable.

I have to have a tree or rock or wall or something to lean against to be at all safe from peeing on my feet, though.

Unless it's in the shower, I sit. Sometimes out of boredom I'll sit the other way, facing the tank.

I wouldn't mind learning how to pee standing up (or at least getting one of those STP devices) for occasions when I might be far from a restroom. I don't like the idea of having to completely pull down my pants and squat out in the woods or whatever - it makes me nervous. And while 95% of the time I don't mind sitting on a public toilet, occasionally I'll encounter a port-a-john gross enough to make me squat. It would be nice to stand in those cases.

I'm a girl and had to learn how to pee standing while I was living with an alcoholic stepparent who couldn't aim while drinking (which was always) and constantly left pee on the toilet seat. It took a while to teach myself how to do it, but I can manage pretty well now and never make a mess. It comes in handy in public restrooms, let me tell you!

Firstly: I'm female.

I did master peeing standing up when I was younger, but I got a pstyle and it's a lot more convenient. And it doesn't involve groping of genitals or removing pants. I take it with me when going somewhere bathroom-less.

But 99% of the time I sit because the pstyle is not amazing enough to carry around with me wherever I go.

I only attempt to stand if a bathroom is super nasty. I learned to stand and pee when I was little and we would travel by car on vacations and stop at disgusting rest stops. I can't seem to do it anymore, I just about fall over trying. I have found a great alternative though, you just take a cup in the bathroom with you, pee in that, dump it, and throw the cup away, and ta-da no contact with nasty dirty toilet! I can't believe I just told everyone that haha.

I'm a girl and I mostly pee sitting down, but I can pee standing if I want to / need to. It's much easier in a skirt, though. The only problem I've ever had with peeing standing or squatting has been my damn pants getting in the way. I'm still pretty proud of having managed to drop my pants and pee behind a tree while very very drunk without hitting my pants once when I was in high school though.

Honestly, the ease guys have peeing is the one thing that gives me a mad case of penis envy.

OMG, your response is cracking me up! The candidness is wonderful! And yes! It does let the air out, LMAO!

Oops, almost forgot to answer myself! I sit and standing is hit or miss for me as it can easily get diverted down the leg. I find I have to make sure to push forcefully and be sure to have my labia fully separated so the stream doesn't go anywhere but straight down. It's too much work!

Irrelevant to myself but I've seen comics pasted on public toilet doors telling females not to squat on the toilet seats like this lest they fall in the toilet bowl itself.

I also frequently hear people complaining about females hovering over the seats and ending up getting pee over the seats, hence they also hover over it to avoid having to clean up after the others or sitting on it.

Standing is so much less complicated

If you really had to, do you use paper to cover? Or you always do that, or how? Crouch? I have no insight how this happens with the ladies. Men, do you care about the infections you could get if you sit at a public place to do your big thing? Do you sit at all? I wouldn't. Did you know there are countries where you can't sit because there is nothing to sit on? That's the other extreme, I found that really nerve racking!

I sit. On the toilet seat. There is no infection or disease you can really get from the top of a public toilet seat. I think it was on MythBusters, the top of the toilet seat was cleaner than the sink you use to wash your hands!

Think about it.. Everyone's thighs are showered and then in protective pants/skirts all day, only being brought out to grace the top of a toilet seat.

Your hands pick up tons of bacteria all day long.

I definitely wouldn't sit on a toilet seat that was covered in poop or urine though. I mean,common sense.
But how do you think those things got there to begin with? People squatting!

I'm with you tigerkate, I just sit on down. If nothing in there looks tremendously clean but it's either go in there or behind the building where everybody can see me, I might try to squat, but I'll use the paper if it's available. I have a friend who refuses to sit on public toilet seats and it drives me crazy, cuz I've seen her pee on the seat trying to keep from getting dirty, and then doesn't clean her pee off the seat! I'm like, dude! You're one of the people you complain about!!!

Huh--I always wondered where the urine on the seat came from! It never occurred to me that it came from women squatting

I always use toilet paper or the disposable seat covers, if they're provided (although those can often be so much trouble!). I love when the toilet seat has that plastic covering that automatically changes out when you flush.

I sit. The doorknob to the front of the building has more germs on it than a toilet seat will. If I'm not going to freak about the doorknob, why worry about the toilet?

Besides, it seems to me that on the rare occasion I try to squat (which wears out my legs like hell!) I always seem to spray on the seat. I find myself wondering if the ladies trying to stay clean by squatting are the ones making the biggest mess. It really annoys me when I have to wipe up someone else's leavings. At least urine is sterile.
