If I look closely at the rim of the toilet after having a piss - oh, that's a standing-up piss obviously - there's always some minute speckles of urine there, usually on the back rim, next to where the seat attaches. And that's no matter how clean and direct a piss it seems to be at the time.

This gives the impression you're peeing up into the air and allowing gravity to take its toll.
I try to avoid using gravity, and thunder vertically down into the bowl as noisily as possible.

This is absolute bollocks though. Nobody wants to stand up (lol) and say "yeah okay, I tend to piss everywhere but so what?" so everybody instead makes out that they have awesome aim. So that means, generally, everybody has awesome aim and those of us that choose to sit down are the weird ones. A quick visit to any public toilet anywhere (and I mean ones in professional office environments, not manky portaloos) tells you that this simply isn't true and you're all a bunch of deluded cunts. There's always piss everywhere.

What to people make of people who piss directly into the water so that they make as much noise as possible rather than pissing off to the side? I think they're pretty bad people.

I piss directly into the water, it saves having to get out of the bath.

But spraying noise out of the bowl is surely better than spraying piss?

You're not spraying piss by just not pissing directly into the water!

In most toilet bowls that I've used, pissing to the side of the water causes drops of piss to bespatter the horizontal top of the bowl and beyond. That's often still preferable to me to thundering in the water though.

Bowl bespattering in your own home is of course more of a concern than if you are using a public toilet or are chez someone you don't like much. Depends on your morals I guess.

And then of course there's bowel spattering, which is another thing entirely.

I would say there is most definitely not a hard fast rule for whether water or porcelain produces less spray. And even considering the porcelain to be one area is pointless.
Every single toilet is quite different in terms of flat bits, curved bits, angles. As long as you're happy with your technique at home sometimes that's the best you can hope for.

Just realised you started this in the "sit down" thread Gevin. Surely this is more relevant for the standers.
Any discrepancy between what you aim at is greatly reduced when sitting due to a more limited range of angles available and of course the lesser height of travel.

Wow hang on there's not an actual standing up thread is there, that is just for women. This whole thing is so confusing.

I wipe down the toilet rim after every single piss if I'm standing up. Do you?

I seriously think we should apply for some funding to write a scholarly paper on this subject. Putting our combined knowledge into a definitive study would I'm sure result in an invaluable resource to the piss researchers of the future.

Out of curiosity, hat do the standers do in the dead of night? Put the light on? Stand in the dark?

Usually in the dark. Too sleepy to want to turn the light on, and the ambient light from outside (and the sound feedback from the bowl) are enough to keep me aligned.

Obviously put the light on. That's the most stupid question I've ever heard. Why would I walk into a dark room at 8pm and turn the light on but not do the same if it was 3am? And it's nothing to do with the fact that I stand. It would be the same whatever I was going to do in the room I'd just walked into.

Because it would be uncomfy and would cause you to wake more? I rarely put lights on if I'm pottering about the house during the night, mainly cos I don't want to stand there blinking like a buffoon and extending my awake period unnecessarily.

Admittedly "hat do..." is a stupid question, but you're definitely in the minority here I would think. Most people wouldn't put a light on if they didn't need to at 3am, because, as Ian says, it wakes you up, it's harsh on your eyes, and it disturbs other people in the house. Since a large part of the reason for sitting down is out of courtesy to others, I'm not surprised that it doesn't occur you to be considerate to other people, you selfish prick.
And Ian, that's rank. Your bathroom must be covered in piss.

Basically I put the seat up, touch my shins against the bowl, lean against the back wall and aim directly downwards. 100% of the time I hear a tinkle of success as I hit the water first squirt with no adjustment necessary.

Maybe so, but the floor gets cleaned at least annually.

Weird they didn't mention pissing to the side of the water as it's quite an obvious option.

By the way, to piss directly into the water you'd need to be a full-on psychopath or severely autistic.

By the way, how much does it matter if a few specks of piss that you can't see or smell, and as far as you're concerned doesn't even exist, land on some of the surfaces near your toilet? You're not going to know. Also they say piss is sterile don't they? I mean, it's probably some bullshit myth, but on the other hand you're not spraying AIDS everywhere either.

I'm not sure if with had the debate but
Because urine is sterile you would think washing before you pee is more important than afterwards

Yeah it's a good point. In the same way that flushing the toilet sprays minute specks of piss and God know's what else all over you and your bathroom, including toothbrushes. It's grim to think about but ultimately it's not keeping me up at night.

I remember once sitting in my lounge (with at least one person not of the household) and my dad went to the toilet directly above the room and he pissed directly into the water. I couldn't help but be a bit embarrassed.

I think you're a full-on psychopath. I didn't previously know that about you.

I think you should probably put the lid down before you flush. I mean, I don't always do so but it's probably sensible.
