Over at Poopreport.com, there was a great debate going on about sitting or standing when you wipe. Well, it’s about taking a look after wiping but there was plenty of debate going on about sitting or standing.
I read this awhile back but I can’t get it out of my mind. I was surprised that so many people stand when they wipe. I just can’t fathom wiping standing up. Aren’t you risking making a bigger mess?
I keep imagining a proud little boy looking over his training potty to survey his wares.
I know this was explored to great lengths at Poopreport.com but I was interested in asking people who aren’t quite so anal about reporting about their poops on a regular basis. So, are you sitter or a stander?
I think we did this thread before and the majority are sitters (because it is clearly the correct method) but there is a surprising number of people who stand too, likely because they can’t manage the task of leaning forward and reaching back simultaneously. Pfft, Amateurs.
I’ve used bathrooms all over the world, many with either a hand-held sprayer, or a tub of water with a scoop in it, or an add-on device in the toilet that acts like a bidet. But I’ve never seen any towels in these stalls, cloth or paper.
So, after your wash yourself, how do you dry your butt? I’ve asked this question repeatedly, in various related threads, and have never gotten a straight answer.
I’m a stander. I’m prone to back spasms and twisting that much while having a back cramp and sitting has actually brought me to tears. So now I stand to wipe even when my back is fine. And the TP is supposed to come over the top of the roll.
I lean forward a tad (I guess still considered sitting and wipe from behind. Between the legs is wrong, there’s always a bit of urine left in the ol’ flesh balloon, and i don’t want it getting all over my arm.
Add one cat to that list (3 total) and I’m in the same school with silenus. Mrs. Butler, however, stands, and can’t figure out how I can do it sitting. Granted, I don’t understand the standing aspects either.
I’ve also an extremely deep “crack” and I’m sure the standing up would make a huge mess. <squish>
I also agree this thread needs a TMI at the title… :dubious:
