Swedish Political Party Wants To Make Urinating While Standing Illegal For Men
Male representatives on the Sormland County Council in Sweden, said that men should sit rather than stand while urinating in office restrooms
Men should sit while urinating, says a Swedish political left party.
Vänsterpartiet, a socialist and feminist political party claims that urinating while seated is more hygienic for men. “The practice decreases the likelihood of puddles and other unwanted residue forming in the stall — in addition to being better for a man’s health by more effectively emptying one’s bladder.”
However John Gamel, a professor at the University of Louisville, disagrees. He said that “Men scatter urine not so much during the actual urination as during the ‘shaking off’ that follows. As a result, forcing men to sit while emptying their bladders will serve little purpose, since no man wants to shake himself off while remaining seated on the toilet.”
Supporters of this motion also claimed that sitting during urination also has medical benefits, including reducing the risk of prostate problems and leading to a healthier and longer sex life.View Article Source »
