    Stepping up, or leaving the seat down?

    For this thought, as I was using the restroom just curious how many with so/wife leave the seat down and not get yelled at for leaving it up. When my wife and I talked about dressing while at home, if I am fully dressed or just getting home from work the seat is always left down. Only time that the seat is left up is when of son's come over and uses the restroom.

    The seat is always down at our house unless it's getting cleaned or someone comes over and leaves it up. I pee sitting down in guy and girl mode. Of course unless my male privledge allows me to pee outside in the woods lol

    At home, the seat is always down, because I sit down to go! I stand up when out and about(in male mode). Have not got to the having to go when out dressed! Hugs Lana Mae

    I like to read in the bathroom, so standing up makes my aim somewhat less accurate.

    I am single and have my own bathroom off the master bedroom so it's always up. But I never understood the whole put the seat down thing. I am 54 years old and have only once, at age 4, sat on a toilet with the seat up, I learned my lesson that day. Why would anyone sit down without checking first.

    If I didn't sit down I don't think I would reply to as many threads as I do.

    My wife always leaves it down, if I am standing I put it up then back down when I am done most of the time.

    But my wife never complains if I forget to put it back down.

    I've always left it down. When I was growing up I had to leave it down for my mom and sister. When I was single I left it down out of habit and til this day, where I'm the only guy in the house, I still leave it down.

    Roslyn,
    I guess it's good manners to put the seat down after it's only a courtesy for the GGs in the house, I still find it easier to stand when dressed, it's easier to find things and tuck them away again .

    My ex wives always gave me grief over the seat no matter if it was up or down.
    My fist ex wanted it down so I put it down usually but if one of the kids left it up I got the blame for it.
    My second ex wanted it down so when she found it up I said well you are in there put it down but your ass is big enough it didn't really matter either way.
    We teased each other like that all the time.

    I thought we had smart seats that do all the hard work of putting it up and down for us. Just wave your hand and... presto!

    No wife, no kids and the seats are always left down, so if one is left up it occasionally it is because the cleaning lady Lauri left it up...............or the ghosts have been here again

    Standing to pee is gross. It splatters everywhere. That's why the men's restroom is so nasty. The seat stays down at my house. No one here but me and Obi, my rescue pup, and he goes outside. Oh, I forgot Buttons, my cat, he goes in the litter box.

    I have BPH and a weak stream as a result. so I always pee sitting down, unless I'm in a hurry or need to use my male perogative because the bathroom is dirty. So the seat is down.

    Some time ago, somewhere, I used a toilet where the seat was spring loaded to the UP position. You pushed it down and sat. On the way up the seat followed you up. Weird, but usually clean.

    Much earlier, in southern Europe, I found toilets without a seat, just two pads to put your feet on and you squatted over the hole (oops, there went my wallet again). But at least no wet seat.

    OMG, I've been drinking and I read a peeing thread. Must drink some more.

    At least Jeri's comment was right on target (yes, pun fully intended) so that I don't have to offer anything constructive.

    And the answer is the seat and top should both be down to avoid spreading germs such as E. coli.

    Yes, I do sit down to pee unless in guy mode.

    Seat down all the time and I sit every time. There is no point in wearing nice lingerie and acting like a man.

    Since having prostate cancer I also pee sitting down in both modes unless I'm outside working on out 5+ acres.

    I couldn't agree more! I clean the toilets in my household and I like it clean. No matter how good of an aim you are it will never be as clean as just sitting to pee. My wife questioned me at first but I told her it was to feel more girly, keeps a clean bathroom, and the seat will always be down for her. She doesn't question it anymore.

    Another big plus is going to the bathroom in the middle of the night and not having to worry about turning lights on and blinding yourself.
