Posted on 06/12/2012 7:47:32 AM PDT by massmike
Left Party members of a Swedish county council said they want to encourage men using the council's toilets to sit during urination.
The Left Party in Sormland said it wants the Sormland County Council to pass a motion requiring toilets reserved for stand-up urination to be labeled, Swedish news agency TT reported Monday.
The party said sit-down urination is more hygienic and reduces the risk of bathroom users having to negotiate their way around puddles en route to the toilet.
The supporters of the motion said sitting during urination also has medical benefits, including reducing the risk of prostate problems and leading to a healthier and longer sex life.
Viggo Hansen, a substitute member of the council and author of the motion, said he wants it to eventually lead to sitting-only bathrooms.

I don’t know if putting a chair in front of a urinal will solve the problem.
THIS IS NOT THE SEMI-NEWS SITE IS IT?
The Janitor’s Union speaks.
Guys will just stand on the chair and shoot down.
“Here comes the forest fire bomber dropping slurry on the fire!”
Obama has had this policy in place at the White House since he took office.
If God didn’t intend men to shoot, he wouldn’t have given them guns.
So it starts with banning 16oz drinks at the 7-11 and it slippery slopes down to forcing men to sit down to pee.
Strange World we live in.
They want me to sit down while I urinate!!!???...p.. on ‘em.!
Sorry, I do not want to be forced to sit on a nasty public toilet just to take a leak.
Apparently Swedish wives have been making their husbands do this at home for years—or else. It’s a Feminazi thing.
That would piss me off.
We must keep in mind that this is the result of the incremental individual control that is communism (albeit in the “socialism” pahse).
It can be argued that it would be a logical outcome of the policy changes being implemented in the current administration.
Well. this would solve the age old “put the darn seat down” problem. :)
Stand up men!
What would be MORE hygienic, is if people actually washed their hands after a trip to the can. I can't tell you how many people I see in the office who never wash their hands.
Is that you Reiiiccsssssssssshhhh?
Not that many years ago, I remember seeing in print a comment made by a male U.S. Navy pilot right around the time that political correctness started to hit the Navy at full steam.
He said, “They won’t be happy until they have us sit down when we pee!” (or words to that effect).
Sorry won’t work. I poured all my viagra down the toilet and now I can’t get the seat down. :-)
How is it more hygienic to dip your dangle in the water . . . ?
The Pee Police
The older version didn't even have partitions: a ledge to stand on, a wall to piss against and a floor drain. You can still find them in older more rural train stations. Not pretty, but highly efficient.
LOL LOL my, my.
I assume they have not changed dippers for boys have they?
Hey friends they want to do it, we as man now have a right to go to woman bathroom and amuse ourselves sitting on a toilet and listen to opera or some cool techno dance song LOL
This is just stupid.
The first ten years of my adult life I was single and quickly learned that a bathroom is much easier to clean and smells better if you sit rather than stand.
Are they also going to order women not to hover?
Stand up Chuck. OOPS.
I am pretty certain that Barack Hussein Soetoro Kardashian Obama already sits down to urinate.
How does one say “Go piss up a flagpole” in Swedish?
I remember the latrines at the Indy 500 in the 60s they used a barn-sized rain gutter sealed to the concrete block wall, and a downspout to the septic.
No, it's Saaaaaaaarrrc.
Any idiot can pee sitting down. A real man can poo standing up.
The studies I’ve seen says roughly 50% of men and 35% of women don’t wash their hands, even after taking a dump.
Remember that the next time you reach for a coffee stirrer.
If I tried to sit down when taking a leak, I’d likely fall off the porch backwards............ ;-)
Hmm.. you mean, they now check if people are sitting or standing?
Strange goings on.
Sit if you want, just don’t tell others what they have to do.

My husband had an admin assistant who sat right outside the men’s room....SHE would LECTURE anyone who came out without washing....she could hear everything!
Be like Dad
Not like Sis
Stand up when
You take a piss

Ewwwww, you have ruined my day, thx.....
Most German and Japanese men sit to piss.
Mom told me to wash my hands after going and to sing “Happy Birthday” while washing to make sure I spent enough time washing. I had sixteen birthday parties in one year at one place I worked. They all felt sorry for me......singing “Happy Birthday” to myself in the bathroom.
“...sitting during urination also has medical benefits, including reducing the risk of prostate problems and leading to a healthier and longer sex life.”
I need to see the medical research that suggests sitting has beneficial effects on the prostate. Sounds like the Pee Party is short a male chromosone.
You fail Manhood 101 if your wife makes you pee sitting down.
Well, there’s always the sink ...
...and they lost the war!
