No matter how you shake and dance- how to keep the last drop of piss off my leg?

Not a joke thread, although joke answers are welcome. I've had this problem for as long as I can remember. It only really affects me when I'm at work wearing a particular pair of thin light khakis- with jeans or thicker pants or at home, I just deal with it, as its not visible. I can shake it twenty times, use my hand to wipe it off, everything. I've even tried taking a paper towel to the stall and wiping my weiner with that, but I usually still leave a micrscopic bit, which somehow invariably leaves this spot on the crotch of the pants, or in a worst case scenario, a trail down my leg. How such a tiny speck of piss can leave such a big stain is beyoind me. I'm then forced to soak my crotch in water and if someone notices, claim I spilled it on myself at the sink. Does anyone else here suffer from this, and have any tips on overcoming it? I know I can't be alone here due to the little rhyme about it. If its relevant, five inches but its thick. Ok not so thick.

Great username/thread title.

If I'm wearing thin light pants, I tend to wear them with undies. Usually keeps the wee on the undies, and off the pants. Usually.

I do the papertowel trick as well, it usually gets most of it.

I suppose you could just not wear those particular khakis, but that doesn't really resolve the underlying issue.

Another concern about the paper towel thing is someone seeing it and think I'm spanking it and tell everyone- unless this is a common thing and a guy would know what I'm doing. Not like I'd spank it at the urinal anyway.

And I wear boxers everyday, but somehow still have the problem, glad to see I'm not alone though.

Heh, I know what you mean. I thought I was alone in this problem too!

I only do the papertowel thing if no one else is around or if I can use a stall and just grab some toilet paper.

I've had success massaging for a couple of seconds at the underside of the base of the shaft where the penis and scrotum meet, personally.

After a couple seconds? Then you my friend have other issues beyond the one in the OP.

You could try weraing a kilt and keeping a wide stance. I'm sure this is why they were invented.

Thank you for this post. I now have bits of partially masticated sandwich on my monitor.

I have given up trying to fix the problem. I just walk out of the bathroom and give a greeting to anyone I might walk by so as to keep their eyes up on my face.

Wow. I am so glad I am female. We use toilet paper, it works and I have yet to be accused of masturbating while doing basic clean-up. My advice? do what my son does -- pee in the stall and use a bit of toilet paper to get that last drop or two before putting your pants back in place.

I've mentioned this in a thread before and JayRx1981 mentions above. The male urethra is shaped like a P-trap. You have to push on your perineum (taint, choad, etc) to get the little bit that gets trapped there.

You mean, a paper towel to catch the remaining liquid that leaks out upon shaking? That might work for me, but invariably there would be some more hanging about that would leak out and not get caught if I were briefless.

But a paper towel or TP directly applied, at least for me, leads, by capillary action, to a very uncomfortable urethra. (At least paper is not as insidious as the Candiru!)

Okay, now to be serious. I used to have this same problem. Here is what you need to do. When you are done peeing, use your middle finger to reach about a centimeter behind the scrotum and push up. You can kind of feel a tube like structure there. I think it's the urinary tract, but don't quote me. You'll be amazed how much more pee you can get to squirt out. So sit back, have a few beers, and let me know how it turns out.

Looks like USCDiver beat me to it. And with better info too.

I sometimes have this problem. Heck, I've had to go take a seat to let my pants dry sometimes. Usually wearing boxers compounds the problem as the pee can drop out and leave the trail down the pant leg.

Sometimes, if I was worried about it. I would wrap my pecker in a a little tp, leave it and there and go back to my desk. Later, I had an office, I could remove it, the tp, and throw in the trash can.

This is why I don't use urinals. Well, this and the time when I was in elementary school and someone kicked me into one while I was peeing.

But seriously, this is easy. Just go in the stall and squeeze that bad boy into some toilet paper.

I've actually thought about posting about that problem too. I can stand there and shake and squeeze, but I still get a wayward drop when I walk away. USCDiver, your link explains a lot. Probably the act of walking away drains the little bit in the U-shaped section.

The weird thing is I swear this didn't start happening until I was in my 20's.

Yup, that's how it's done. Thought it was common knowledge.

I'll try the scrotum trick next time and see how it works. And to think I held off on posting this because I didn't think anyone would think I was serious, let alone have the same issue as well as solutions

One of my friends from school days, whom we'll call "Spot" seemed to have this problem.

Unfortunately, we were never really nice to him about his little problem, and would give him a really hard time.

I usually slam mine hard against the toilet seat a few times and if that doesn't work I stop the end with either a bulldog clip or wind a rubber band around my todger several times.

Go on, just picture it

I've noticed that certain muscles tend to operate when going. When you are finished and walk away, those muscles tend to relax, allowing that last bit to flow out. That's when the problem occurs. So, if you just learn to relax everything just before you walk away, that last drop will escape before you walk away.

Is this the rhyme? I've read the whole thread thinking, there's a rhyme about males peeing? What else do I not know?

My answer: Boxer briefs. Nice, absorbent cotton boxer briefs. After doing your business, tuck Mr. Special into crotchpiece (where there's two layers of fabric) rather than letting him hang loose.

BTW, besides the aforementioned p-trap configuration thing, we gentlemen also have to deal, in due course of time, with the effects of aging on that certain other "p" word involved in our genitourinary tract, which adds a constriction to the whole system that makes for incomplete voiding. The engineering involved in that bodily region speaks loudly against "intelligent" design...

Oh thank God other guys have this problem. Good suggestions, so far - I'll try Dunawake's suggestion later today. And then, I'll probably start looking for a new job.
