As I have stated b4, I am more than willing to accomodate women's toilet seat needs, it's no big deal for me but don't you think there is something a bit wrong with your comment. You don't want to check the toilet seat with your hands then I ask you, what extended part of a man's body would we need to use to reposition the toilet seat in the dark of night if we need to do the #1 deed.
No matter what part we use, it doesn't sound too hygienic to me.
It would be nice if man and woman would shared this difficult chore.

Plenty of glow to see your way around in. Highly recommended.

Looks like this. The green ones have square instead of rounded lighting areas.
They sell toilet seats that glow?

I think you put your finger on it. A man's need for a woman, at least until he is fairly old, is more urgent than a woman's need for a man. That's why there aren't very many heterosexual male prostitutes.

Therefore, whatever a woman charges, in cash or odd behavioral requirements, we tend to pay.

Until we won't.

But men always have to use their hand to lift it. Why not assume it is always up instead of always down?

OK, yes, I realized after I posted that my comment was unclear/wrong so to clarify, I meant groping and checking it in the dark.* At night, it's just easier to have our mutually-agreed-upon rule that the toilet seat is down and the lid is up.* (This is way more info than you may want to hear, but at*night BF does sit down and it causes much frustration for him when I forget and put the lid down.* I have not asked him but I think he does not stand because it is hard to aim well in the dark from a standing position.)

In the daytime, I don't care if anything is up or down since I turn on the light if needed and I do use my hand(s) to move things to suit my purpose.* I assume he does not care either and I especially assume that he uses his hand(s)* * to move things to suit him.* There have been no discussions or negotiations regarding daytime toilet arrangements, so darkness is the critical factor for having our night rules.

So, there, we do share the chores of positioning the seat and lid, and having our night rules means no one has to use their hands for adjusting them in the dark.

Hmmm, this may be my longest post yet, and I hope I have made myself clear on this important relationship-affecting topic and how we handle it.*

(), thanks for the product rec--I'll check it out.

Edited to add:* Happy weekend to all my fellow wage-slaves and to all you retired folks, too!

I humbly disagree. It was detail description of a social conflict. I rarely have issues discussing in graphic details the day to day concerns. In fact, for this public forum, I had to look up the PC version #1 since I forgot which is #1 and which is #2. I would naturally have preferred to use "normal" terms.

But to each, his/her own.

flipstress, thanks for the explanation. You have a great one. Mine will be soggy.

Re: Let's Pick on the Men Today!

We keep the lid down at all times, except when in use. We have 5 cats and this is part of the reason. I have also read that germs spread a distance after flushing the toilet, so I want the lid down before the toilet is flushed!

Re: Let's Pick on the Men Today!

That's true, germs are sprayed in the air during the flushing phase, I wish they had covers on public toilets. We keep the lid down because of the dog, I prefer him not to drink from the toilet for a number of reasons LOL.

Re: Let's Pick on the Men Today!

I debated whether to post this on the Fantasy Bathroom thread or here. We have a cool faucet in our bathroom with a head that can be turned so it is easy to drink out of the faucet. Here is the faucet in normal mode:



My problem is that Greg likes to drink out of the faucet a lot and then forgets to put it back in the normal faucet position. I don't notice and turn on the faucet full blast, and get sprayed in the face:



Can you help

I suggest if he continues to do this then , no game privileges, no internet access and he can cook your supper but can't have any for 2 weeks.

Greg, rein it in, Baby. No one wants to see The Early Retirement Forum's favorite couple go kerplunck.
