In fact, this is something that helps Mills diagnose patients who might have problems peeing.
“As long as a guy feels like he’s emptying his bladder standing or sitting, he’s in good shape,” he said. “If not, then he should should see a urologist to make sure there's not a blockage that makes him need to sit down and generate that abdominal contraction to empty.”
Good to know, right? Anyway, who’s looking forward to getting old?
You don't have to worry about shit
We sincerely hope that you already sit on the toilet if you think you have to crap, or at least squat over it. However, if you’re unsure, you might want to park yourself on the throne when you pee in case shit does what it does best… and, uh, happens.
“Being able to squeeze out the last drops of pee is the main advantage [to sitting down],” Mills said. “But if you're worried about being between -- not sure if it's a number 1 or a number 2 -- you've got your bases covered by sitting.”
