Various blog entries made me look up something I read recently on the topic of men sitting down to pee. An article on Vice.com discussed the growing trend in men sitting to pee. The lead in the article is that a court in Germany verified the right of men to urinate standing up if they choose. The article then discusses the growth in men that do choose to sit to pee and cites various reasons from feminism, public health, personal health and a rise in toilet associations.
Strikingly* absent from the article was any consideration for the great surge in sales of various chastity devices. You know that when you have to worry about cloned chastity devices from China, there’s SOME kind of great rise in men getting their junk locked up. Now, I know some chastity devices allow men to urinate while standing but I would hazard a guess that most locked men will find themselves sitting for two reasons: spray and ‘assuming the position’. Few of the devices really allow free pee, so there’s always a risk of urine splashing on ones pants or shorts. Sure, there IS a plus of having the metal recognized by a bystander standing at a urinal, leading to the inevitable conversation that might be started. (This mirrors a recent post by Terri about Clock and Collar’s post where he is required to admit his chastity to strangers).
And then there’s the multi faceted question of sitting down because it’s:
- “What she orders”
Sure, one person’s demeaning is another person’s offensive gesture. That’s okay, kink your own kink.
Still, back to the major idea – that more dicks are actually locked up and that also pushes men to be sitting while they pee. The article doesn’t address that.
And perhaps there could have been recognition that, even without chastity, there are more men submitting to women and being told to sit down to pee at home and abroad. Myself, living in a house with three women and myself being mostly submissive, I can count on one hand the number of times I’ve stood before the throne in order to unleash the doctor’s uncollected golden sample. Primarily, I sit all of the time. Yes, there’s a measure of my doing so to be able to say “I don’t know who pee’d terribly and made a mess, but it wasn’t me!” but there’s another part of me that respects the women in the house who don’t want to see that kind of spray and mess and, well, I’d like to think that my roommates secretly would be happy to know that the man in the house submissively sits for THEIR comfort and cleanliness. But I have no evidence that they know I’m doing it for that reason. That’s probably better all around at this point.
*Not quite strikingly as I bet the vast majority of vice readers do not, in fact, consider male chastity as a headline story.
