Why do guys need urinals
A few days ago, I asked my male friends — via Facebook, of course — some simple questions about a device we all use most of the time, but never discuss. I had several very important questions: 1. Why are they so low that as a result men piss on the floor? Why do men stand so far back, so that they piss on the floor? Why do some have black flies transferred onto their surface? What happened to the fashion of putting ice in urinals in expensive hotels, and where did the idea come from?SEE VIDEO BY TOPIC: Guys At Urinals - MetroSaga

Like many millennials, Curtis got his first mobile phone when he entered his freshman year of high school. He was 15 years old, and his first Nokia went with him everywhere. So why not take the opportunity? Why would anyone risk the splashback?

If you're looking for me at Macworld, I'm the guy who wasn't using his iPhone at a urinal. Ultimately, your phone is a lot more interesting than the blank wall in front of them.
Who wants to stare straight ahead, looking at nothing, like a dead-eyed zombie? It Takes Your Mind Off Stress Beyond a gentlemanly adherence to social phone etiquette, many men scroll through their phone while standing at a urinal to alleviate anxiety.
Some have a shy bladder, which can be uncomfortable and even detrimental to their health. But this technique creates a double-edged sword. Just saw a guy watching a TV show on his iPhone while its balanced on a urinal as he had a wee.
He totally didn't notice me look at his cock. But nothing quite works like the phone. Kinda lame, I know. But that changed when he took his first trip to the bathroom with a smartphone. It would feel a little weird texting my friend and his wife with my dick in my other hand.

In Defense of the Urinal iPhone Guys
Do you have difficultly using the urinals? Do you need to seat on the toilet to urinate but then have difficulty getting up with out assistance? What are some solutions that you have come up with being a male and needing to use the bathroom without assistance?
Illustration: Eliot Wyatt. It's a busy Saturday evening in my local pub. After three vodka sodas with fresh lime and a splash of cranberry yes, I'm gay , the familiar tingle of my bladder greets me. After heading to the men's toilets, my fears are confirmed: they're mobbed. Not only is the cubicle engaged, but the dreaded queue for urinals is, unlike me, in full flow.
It’s time to take a stand against the urinal
Long ago, the gods disproportionately granted to men positions of power in politics, business, science and the arts — power they still exercise to this day. But there was a cost: they would have their dignity affronted routinely and be expected to conduct one of their most delicately personal acts in public. Now I find such matters phenomenally difficult to discuss, and struggle to utter even the gentlest euphemism concerning the expulsion of bodily waste. But all it takes for evil to triumph is for good people to say nothing — and as urinals are evil in porcelain, I feel a duty to let it all out. My desperation has been prompted by the invention of a urinal attachment to the standard domestic lavatory. It encourages the worst in us men: the indulgence of a certain Neanderthal instinct to consider ourselves different in every way from The Ladies. Whether trough or bowl, the urinal subjects a man to the most wretched of indignities, to which we have become so inured that any deviation from the norm is considered effete. The urinal is inconsistent with civilisation: there is something barbarous about expecting men to expose themselves and carry out such a tender operation before others, especially while maintaining conversations with ostentatiously unembarrassed neighbours. Do you …?
Men reveal the unspoken rules of using a public urinal
This happens in my psychiatry office, but it happens in gym locker rooms and social gatherings and business settings, too. A side benefit of being a trained listener as well as a journalist is that I can eventually share the insights I glean—without attribution, of course—with the public. Again and again over the years, and not in small numbers, men have confided to me that they find urinals anxiety-provoking—even humiliating. They still hesitate, if only momentarily, before unbuttoning their trousers and unzipping their flies while men stand on either side of them, holding their private parts, staring forward hopefully at white ceramic tiles.
Urinals are often provided in public toilets for male users in Western countries less so in Muslim countries. They are usually used in a standing position. Urinals can be with manual flushing, automatic flushing, or without flushing, as is the case for waterless urinals. They can be arranged as single sanitary fixtures with or without privacy walls or in a trough design without privacy walls.
4 Reasons to Put a Urinal in Your Home
When my editor asked me if I was up for writing some answers to questions women have about urinals, I immediately accepted. If he is able to, your average man will always leave a urinal in between himself and another guy. Because some dudes get weirded out when others stand directly next to them to take a leak when other urinal stalls are open. I usually hold my junk with my left hand and swipe through Tinder with my right, which requires a certain level of skill, but like I said: I spend a lot of time posted up at the urinal.
At the urinal. Now, I'm okay with chatter, but anything more than a salutation is too distracting. Cross-stall conversation is unconscionable. I also think that the onus is on the instigator to carry the conversation. So when this man said to me, 'So, let's talk about you'—well, I was startled.
How Are Urinals Still A Thing?

I was at a trendy bar recently. I'm pretty reclusive these days and very much the healthier, older, side of my partying years. I'm no longer used to nightclubs and I'd forgotten something important: dancing is great fun!
