Almost one in four men in the US sit down to pee “every” or “most” of the time. The perhaps surprising finding comes courtesy of a new poll undertaken by the respected British survey company YouGov.
The survey was undertaken following a Guardian article earlier in the year. It explored the different attitudes toward men’s urination habits around the world. It noted Germans have their own slang term for men who sit down when peeing: Sitzpinklers.
Although the term has slightly negative connotations, implying a certain effeminacy, Germany seems to be more encouraging of men sitting down. The issue was highlighted when a German landlord recently took his tenants to court for “splashback” damage to his marble floor.
