“Almost one in every four Japanese men sits down on the toilet to urinate, according to a survey by Toto Corp., the country’s biggest manufacturer of toilets.
Toto’s poll of 2,312 adult men from across Japan discovered that 23.7 percent sat down while having a pee.
Nearly half of those who sat instead of stood said they did so because it made cleaning cisterns simpler, while almost as many said it simply felt more comfortable.
Three years ago, Toto conducted a similar poll amongst housewives, asking them the toiletry habits of the men in their homes, finding that about only one in seven sat while urinating.
Sitters are becoming increasingly common, like the 24-year-old company employee from Kawasaki who joined their ranks upon marrying six months ago.
“It’s my job to clean the toilet and I used to find my aim wasn’t too good,” the man, who declined to be named, told the Mainichi. “Once I’d gotten used to sitting, I learned to relax.”
I don’t understand what the issue is with aiming. Unless you are blind or have trouble holding on it is not that difficult.
