des- : I asked my husband, in a joking sort of way like ‘can you believe some people stand??’ and it turns out… he is one of those people I don’t even know who I married! BUT I had to clarify, and it is more of a squat, like a hover over the seat the way some people do when they don’t want to touch a public toilet seat. Definitely not a full stand (to my relief). Which means if it takes a while to, er, get clean, then you’re getting one heck of a thigh workout.
He seemed equally bamboozled at how I was able to stay seated…

🙄 How I wish I could simply “close this.”

nonablu : This is terrible. I’m so sorry you found out such awful news. You definitely have my prayers at this difficult time.
When you get over the shock, PLEASE ask him how he manages in those tiny, tiny public stalls where you have to turn sideways to get through the door, and can’t move your knees apart without hitting either side of the stall. Chances are, if he’s a stander, he’s a public pooper too. This is something I’m dying to know.

I sit, he stands. (And I think it’s the funniest thing ever.🤣)

1) I refuse to accept that these poll results are accurate
2) HOW on Earth are so many people not only NOT sitting down to wipe, but actually CONFUSED as how such a thing could be accomplished?
You literally just lean slighty to the side, spread your legs and -starting at the front- wipe backwards. I swear, it is quite easy. I don’t even need to stretch or warm up before-hand.
I have also never dipped my hand into water (ew??!) because the water in the toilets I use doesn’t come right up to the rim. What sort of toilets are you people using?!?!?!
3) I have no idea what Dh does, because I didn’t know this was a thing before today. But now the same part of me that loves horror movies needs to find out.

Lolllllllll. Dh is a stander, which shocked and horrified me when I first found out! Like what! I had no idea that was even an option. But whatever I guess…
ETA: And I 100% wipe from front to back while sitting down…all you have to do is lift up your hiney a little bit to get the angle right!

des- : I know I’m reviving an ooooooold thread, but I actually stand/squat (in reality it’s a standing squat) and put one of my feet on the toilet seat, and I think that this is gives the most “access” and is actually the best way to make sure everything down there is clean as can be.
Yes, even in public stalls. And I am plus size–currently a US size 18-20.

Sansa85 : LMAO yes… how would you even ask your SO this question? Over a candelit dinner?
“Hey baby, you know I love you so much. Now tell me… how do you like to wipe your ass?”
Anyhow. I can only speak for myself because I wouldn’t dream of asking such an embarrassing question… I sit when wiping. Let’s get technical here. How would you get everything clean if you’re standing up, because the ass cheeks naturally are closed more standing up. You’d have to really dig in there to wipe properly. Unless you were slightly squatting?? How else would you get in there??

missmollybee : The people who are “standing” are squatting. I can guarantee you that because that’s what I do and there is no other way to wipe while “standing.”

My fiance stands and I found this out because when we moved in together, the toilet paper started disappearing from the TP stand and would somehow magically be over on the counter, far away from where I could reach it.
I was naturally very confused as to why this kept happening, so I asked my fiance about it and he said “Oh yeah I forget to put it back on the stand when I’m done wiping.” As if it is completely normal to take the TP off the stand when you wipe. I then asked why he put it down on the counter as opposed to back on the stand that is within reach. His response was “Because the counter is closer when I’m stand and wipe.”
That then prompted “What?”, “How?”, and “Why?” as well as “What kind of monster are you?”
ETA: Unlike most of the commenters who stand on this thread – my fiance explained that he does in fact stand fully upright, and the process requires 2 hands.

I stand, standers don’t fully stand up straight, you sort of stand up slightly so you’re still bent over and squatting. I don’t really fancy putting my hand into a toilet bowl to wipe my bottom tbh so that’s why I stand.

franklymydearidont : Ahhh that makes sense. I do lean forward a little however my butt is still on the seat.
Wow I can’t believe this is actually a thread.

My SO just told me he prefers to do a handstand.
