Should men sit down on the toilet seat while urinating?

I saw this story and thought it’d be an interesting topic of discussion. I’ve always maintained the opinion that it’d be better if men sit while peeing to avoid urine-splattered toilet seats…. That is something I CANNOT stand. It appears I’m not the only one who thinks so, Taiwan’s environmental minister also agrees. He wants to get rid the island of urine-splattered toilet seats by encouraging men to sit down to pee.

Stephen Shen, the head of Taiwan’s Environmental Protection Administration (EPA), said he himself has adopted the habit, and urged men to follow his lead in the interests of creating a cleaner environment. Despite the fact that the facilities in most men’s restrooms in Taiwan are comprised mainly of urinals, local government officials are to be asked to put up notices in public areas advising men to take a leaf out of women’s books by sitting on the toilet to relieve themselves. Officials behind the initiative have said the more men who sit down to urinate the more likely it is that public toilet seats will be clean and ready for the next user. Yuan Shaw-jing, director general of environmental sanitation and toxic substance maintenance at the EPA, said the initiative was an attempt to follow in the footsteps of countries like Japan and Sweden.

What do you think? Would this help or is it impossible?

    Only good for private toilets, not for public toilets. Bills on treatment of infections will increase.
