YouGov. The survey was undertaken following a Guardian article earlier in the year. It explored the different attitudes toward men’s urination habits around the world.

It noted Germans have their own slang term for men who sit down when peeing: Sitzpinklers.Although the term has slightly negative connotations, implying a certain effeminacy, Germany seems to be more encouraging of men sitting down.

The issue was highlighted when a German landlord recently took his tenants to court for “splashback” damage to his marble floor.Prompted by the article, YouGov set out to ask men in 13 different countries whether they stood or sat to pee.The country to come out on top was, indeed, Germany.

Forty percent of men said they always sat down, and 22 percent said “most times”. The rest said “sometimes” or “rarely”, while 10 percent said they “never” sit.The authors note “Signs telling men to sit down to pee are common in German bathrooms, and standing to urinate is often seen as antisocial behaviour.”Sweden and Denmark followed Germany with the greatest percentage of men sitting.
