Left Party in Sweden wants men to sit down to urinate


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 think that will work. Well-endowed men object to dipping their penises in toilet water, and who would admit he isn’t to the strangers waiting in line?
