    I was just reading this long post on Deadspin and it is quite a revelation. I've been on this earth nearly 30 years and I didnt know that there were two positions with regards to wiping after a number 2.

    I am of the standing variety but apparently people sit and wipe as well. Consider my mind blown!!!

    So what are you? Sitter or Stander?

    Not only can you sit or stand - you can also go between the legs or around the legs . . .

    I'm a sitter BTW.

    I'm a stander.

    I think it's women that tend to be sitters.

    I've never heard of anyone standing to wipe. How on earth can you get yourself totally clean if you are standing?

    You stand but you bend over. And for really tough jobs if you put one leg up on the tub or counter it really does the trick!

    Use the off hand to pull apart your cheeks.

    Sitter, back to front. Seems to be, for me personally, the most effective to the task at hand.

    Oops, didn't realize it was a poll, too.

    Sitter.

    I love Deadspin for random cultural observations like these :)

    Standing? I never thought of that as an option.

    Sitter (or squatter) wiping to the back. Then I use the bidet.

    I'm a clean freak I guess. I sit and wipe front to back, then back to front and finally front to back once more.

    Are the toilets in Turkey mostly squat?
    First one I used was in Arles, in France.
    I got used to them, but didn't fall in love with them.
    In Azerbaijan, they didn't even have toilet paper.
    Same deal in Turkey? Maybe in the country?

    Throughout my séjour in France, I lived in mortal terror of having to use a Turkish Toilet as anything other than some giant urinal. Luckily, such never came to pass.

    I'm an "always at home" type myself unless the urgency is overwhelming, which is (still) exceptionally rare :cool:

    I'm a sitter and wipe back to front.

    I stopped using toilet paper a few years ago when Cottonelle came out with their moist wipes and I've never looked back.

    When I lived in Spain in the 70s, most public toilets I came across were squatters. It took some getting used to.

    The other thing that threw me were the little old ladies in the mens bathrooms. They would dispense sheets of toilet paper for you to use and you were expected to tip them on your way out. For a young, naive Midwestern boy it was an eye opener.
