Which Is Healthier For Men- To Pee Standing Or Sitting?

Curejoy Expert Gina Hodge Explains:

As the most basic male instincts and as a part of growing up, most of the men might have learnt to pee standing. The anatomy and physiology of the male genitourinary tract favors them to pee while standing. However, there are currently around 1/3 of men who choose to pee sitting down. While healthy males are able to urinate just as well when sitting as when standing, discussions about the optimal position in which to urinate have become quite common amongst men.

Reasons As To Why Men Should Choose Sitting Over Standing While Urinating

In public places and sometimes at home, men are encouraged to use the sitting position as to reduce the spattering of urine. This would also prevent the formation of puddles of urine which might give an offensive odour and definitely a very gross look.

  • Men choosing the sitting posture while urinating might be better for public health as it may prevent the spread of disease. Though urine is sterile as it comes out, but it can be an excellent growth medium for bacteria.
  • Sitting down while passing the urine would definitely be more hygienic.
  • It would also be more considerate for the domestic and commercial toilet cleaners.

[Read: Threats to Men’s Health]

  • Men who pee while sitting will fully empty their bladder, which is better for their prostates; hence they might experience a longer, healthier sex life.
  • Stephen Shen, the head of Taiwan’s Environmental Protection Administration (EPA) believes that men sitting on the toilet as women do will create a cleaner environment and advocates that men should sit while peeing instead of standing up.
  • Some researchers have recommended that men with lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) should consider peeing in the sitting position as they will be able to empty their bladders more by following this method.
  • While healthy men may experience no benefit by sitting to urinate instead of standing. For some, passing their urine in a sitting posture might be more favorable due to some health conditions, but for the vast majority there is no difference between sitting and standing.

However, some cultures prefer to sit rather than stand. Thus the decision is yours to make, as you should follow whatever suits you the best, according to your convenience and your bodily requirement. Sitting might just be a cultural or psychological preference, not an actual health issue.

For a man it's always standing... He holds the gun and surveys the surrounding. It's his chance to let go ----- aim , spray and when he starts running out of ammo ..... save his ankles ,shoes, socks from collateral damage. Satisfaction at a job well done... MISSION ACCOMPLISHED

For everyones information, it's said AD 1400 years before in Islam. And it's not new for Muslims who learned Islam to sit while pee and dumb. Not only to sit it's also taught slightly high ur right leg than ur left leg in order to pass full urine out of body.

When I was a child and the toilets were few I would spray and shower the ground with a misery that there was never enough to continue

As long a man can pee it's good enough no matter peeing on standing sitting or sleeping. Always thank the body for great relief of peeing.

The freedom I speak of isn't just about peeing. It's about being alone and at one with nature. Sadly, there are many, many people on earth that will never experience it. It's truly liberating.

It's a matter of faith and convenience . If health permits , you can do it while doing headstands or calisthenics . You won't damage your health in any way .Be assured--- What's supposed to come out , will come out .
