Truscott says he is working to measure exactly how much urine splashes when men pee standing up. There was one who had to be taken to an island so that she could relieve herself. As a man in the process of being usurped by three sons - all conventional lean-back and stare at the ceiling types - I wage this battle daily. But when the urine simulator aimed low—imagine hitting just above the drain of the urinal—the splash was more modest and not angled back at the urinator. Yet the power of the toilet taboo is equally crazy. And now, in Paris, their seemingly unstoppable bad behaviour is being rewarded with uritrottoirsgiving willy-nilly-peeing men even more places to go.

If you're a true gentleman, you should pee sitting down
Peeing in wetsuit is fairly justified in diver world. We contacted their team of toilet designers, who are based in Germany. But why did we need their advice in the first place? Before you send me hate mail about street urine stench, we peed into a grate under a storm drain, which was spritzing.
