A new poll issued by YouPoll has asked the big question – how many men sit down to pee? Conducting a 13 country study on men’s peeing preferences, the results show how German men are more likely to sit down instead of stand.
40% of German men sit down to pee every time, with 22% of them sitting down most times. Only 8% rarely do so, but Germany is a country with a term which derides men who sit down to pee. It’s called sitzpinkler.
On the other end of the spectrum, only 6% of men sit down every time to pee, with 15% sitting down most times. 36% claimed to never sit down for a pee.
Our neighbours in Italy registered a 13% of men sitting down every time for a pee, with 21% sitting down most times and 30% never sitting down for a pee.
The poll also noticed some generational differences. Older German men, aged 55 and above, are more likely to sit down at 49%, compared to 28% of 18-34 year olds.
The age difference was reversed in Britain, with 40% of 55+ year olds never sitting down for a pee and 23% of 18 to 34 year olds never sitting down.
