Quote:Looking for reassurance, we searched far and wide for more concrete answers. We asked organic chemists. We asked primary care specialists. We even asked evolutionary psychologists. No one wanted to answer our question. Our love of our own ball smell, we feared, would remain a mystery.

But finally! One responded: Biopsychologist Nigel Barber, who specializes in sexual and reproductive behavior using an evolutionary approach. According to Barber, neither hygiene nor curiosity is the reason for this infatuation. Instead, he theorizes that men sniff their ball-sweat-smelling fingers to feel more alive.

In simpler terms, sniffing your ball smell is reassuring, because it solidifies the fact that you’re a unique human being — one who makes a unique smell, albeit probably not one anyone else would appreciate.

Barber adds that our instinctive attraction to our own scent is essentially a form of egoism, a philosophical theory that recognizes the self above all else. Which is fair: There’s truly nothing like a hefty whiff of your own scrotum odor to remind you that you’re living life in your own unique way.

You're welcome.   Winking

Oh plaeese. It's just cause we can't bend.
Being told you're delusional does not necessarily mean you're mental.

Men who fail to put the seat down are banned in my house.

This is why god gave us nightlights.

You don't want lights when you go to pee in the middle of the night without actually waking up.

Pick the damn thing up, do your thing, and put it back down or you can't share a bathroom. Period.

equally claim the opposite in this scenario, that is, the seat is always up?

This is blatant discrimination against men by the feminist lobby, and is
truly outrageous!

So... I say to men;  leave the seat down, and leave your piss all over the
toilet seat.  Great steaming globules of the stuff; stinking rivulets of your
golden nectar.  Maybe even let some splash on the fucking floor tiles.

Then maybe she'll put the seat up... how it was designed to be.     Whistling

Because when some women go to the bathroom in the middle of the night (and don't turn on the light)  some women have been known to fall butt first into the toilet.  Whistling

Naw, I leave used tampons floating in the toilet so even if the seat is left down there's a nice target to aim your pee at instead of peeing all over the seat. Problem solved, you're welcome.  Girl_devil 

I actually never encounter the seat up/ down problem. It's girls all the way down in my house and out in the world are ladies' restrooms with no boys allowed.  Smile 
It's only at friends' or family's homes that very rarely I find a toilet seat is left up.

As for the balls-sniffers thing in the OP...
Yawn, I'm getting sleepy, time for a nap.   Tongue

Even when brain-addled by sleep, I can remember to check the position of the toilet seat before dropping a deuce. It really isn't that hard. Tongue

Now if you can remember to leave it in a considerate fashion, you'll be the smart one.

The toilet seat has two parts.  Both should be down so no one wins.   Sad

When I met my first wife she had two boys, 6 and 8 years old. When I moved in Sharon tried to give me "the lecture". I just put the lid down after every use. She got the message. The boys cheered.

Question for the guys from a genuinely curious person:

If you have to poop and the seat is up, do you put it down before sitting? Do you then raise the seat up again after pooping?
Have you ever pooped at night and accidentally sat inside a toilet bowl? (I'm guessing there's not much night-pooping so that's probably a moot poop question.)

We're dumb but we're not that dumb...yah I always check to get the seat down before I sit.  But then I leave it down.

I put the seat and lid down when I'm finished, because I'm an equal opportunity kind of guy.  Tongue  I endured a bit of rancor after I got married. That was my solution. This shouldn't be a problem for reasonable people. Pointers and setters use the toilet in different ways. If I have to pay attention to the position of the seat, everybody does.

That's cool. What's annoying is the falling into the pot with one's ass...

So you're saying we ladies who accidentally sit inside a toilet bowl to pee at night are dumb?  Tongue   Chuckle

That is actually a good idea, sanitation-wise. I started doing this after hearing that fecal spray happens microscopically when flushing.

Some of you ladies may not know this, but men sometimes use the toilet with the seat down too. Never once... never, ever, ever, not even one time... have I seen it as an inconvenience to have to put the toilet seat down before taking a dump. I don't see why it's a problem for anyone.

Truly. I'm not trying to be rude. I'm genuinely puzzled about all the griping from women folk.

Picture yourself at 3 in the morning, you don’t put the light on so as not to wake your spouse, and sit down on the toilet bowl rather than the seat.  

Also one might note that peeing and dumping aren’t the only thing women are doing on the toilet...they are often doing rather bloody work there.  If a toilet is shared, seat-down is considerate.  

In my house it’s lid-down because of the cat liking to drink toilet water.
god, ugh

I watched an episode of MythBusters (who get so much wrong that I just cringe) where they left toothbrushes in bathrooms for various amounts of time, and they almost all had e. coli growing on them. >.< Maybe people brush their teeth after defecating and don't wash their hands first?  Huh

I poop on my neighbor's porch. Sometimes his pool.
