As most guys know and do, we stand to pee …And of course, women sit and squat to pee. However, did you know that sitting to pee can actually be good for your health?
Yup, sitting to pee is good for your prostate and it’s also less messy.
This is especially important if you’re over the age of 45 or 50 and are starting to have some prostate growth…
Of course, if you’re going to a public bathroom… It’s just best to stand and pee.
However, when you’re at home or in a private bathroom, you may consider taking a little break and sitting when you pee.
In fact, a global study showed that 40% of German men always sit to pee and 22% do so “most” of the time.
About 25% of Sweden and Australian men also always sit to pee.
In a 2020 study, almost 70% of Japanese men said they sit to pee.
Why It’s Better To Sit Down To Pee
Anyway, there are clinical benefits to sitting when peeing and it’s more specifically having to do with prostate and bladder health.
When you sit down to pee, you’re able to empty your bladder faster and more effectively. You’ll actually use your abdominal muscles more to get those last few squirts out and you’ll feel like you’ve emptied the bladder better.
On the other hand, when you stand to pee, you activate muscles in your pelvis and spine to help you stand… so things are a little more tense around your bladder area and it’s not as easy as sitting.
However, when you sit, everything is completely relaxed, and thus, urinating is easier and faster.
Lastly, when you sit, the aim is better and you’re not going to get pee all over the place. Something your girlfriend or wife would definitely be appreciative of.
This is especially true in the middle of the night when you’re sleeping and have to get up to pee and you don’t want to turn on the lights.
This is the time I always sit to pee. It’s just easier, faster and cleaner.
