To Sit or Not to Sit? Unbeknownst to many — including me, up to about 10 minutes ago — there are two different ways that people wipe their butts! Some people remain sitting, while others stand up to the task. Whisper conducted a survey of people, split equally between men and women. Sitters argue that standing to perform the task is more effort than necessary. Another pro to keeping your cheeks on the pot is that, in that position, the aforementioned cheeks stay spread, preventing any cheek-on-cheek smearing. That means easy cleaning access. The primary pro to standing, according to standers, is that your hand never goes anywhere near a toilet bowl. Fair enough, those things can be gross. Nobody wants a poopie thigh.
How many people wipe standing up?
I just know that future cultures are going to look back at this time period and laugh at us. I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but many individuals are still not wiping their asses correctly. There are many different styles, techniques and variations that an individual could use for wiping their ass after making. This is important, so pay attention. You may ace it and take only one wipe, or it may take you 50, but your job is only complete once you wipe and see that nothing remains. How are you supposed to even track your progress?
Wiping thoroughly and washing your hands after a bowel movement are the two most important ways to prevent odor and the spread of pathogenic disease-causing bacteria. For people who have solid bowel movements, this will mean wiping with toilet tissue. Others may need alternate ways to clean the anus and rectum, including a bidet, a syringe ball, or wet wipes. This could be due to rectal pain, injury such as anal fissures , surgery, or hemorrhoids. Hand washing is also a vital part of bathroom hygiene, the practice of which can prevent transmission of infectious organisms, such as hepatitis A. And, despite what some may tell you, there is a wrong and right way to wash your hands. After comfortably passing a stool, always remember to wipe from front to back , avoiding any skin-to-skin contact with stool. Simply reach behind your back and between your legs, using plenty of crumpled or folded toilet tissue, and wipe backward from the perineum the space between the genitals and anus toward and past the anus.
It's often been said that the grass is always greener on the other side. Well when it comes to wiping your butt , it turns out the toilet paper is just as brown no matter how exactly you wipe it, sitting or standing. Oh, sorry. Did we lose you at sitting OR standing? You didn't know there was another option? Consider your mind blown. Though there is a proper way to keep your butt clean , it generally seems as though even the cleanest wipers of both kinds didn't realize that the other existed until very, very recently. According to a social media poll, most men sit down — and didn't know of any other way until now. So, which one are you?
