    Over the past several years, I have seen wax paper looking toilet seat covers rise in popularity. I'm curious how many people actually use them.

    I only wipe the seat down to get residual splash-out from off the seat. I'm not worried about the germs on the seat because my ass already has plenty of them and I'm sure there's more room at the party. Seems to be nothing more than a part of the growing germophobic trends we see today.

    I used to do that until one day when I was 7 and running home to get to my own toilet. Lightning struck, scared me, and I **** my pants right there on the sidewalk.

    If it's clean, it's clean. Simple rule.

    Meaning: if you wipe any droplets or other visible residue away, then there is absolutely no considerable risk of catching anything.

    Bacteria simply cannot survive what they would find to be a frozen tundra; the toilet seat. Any bacteria would not exist in numbers that could present any real risk.

    So get over it. And if you still think, "yeh but other people have used this, there's germs everywhere, gross!" then lock yourself in a bubble. Do you have any idea what's in/on your food? I mean all food, mind you.

    Anyways I don't see how you could get sick from bacteria on your butt, other than having open wounds.

    Sitting on pee is disgusting, but toilet paper wipes it just fine.

    I always wipe it down. But sometimes when guys feel the need to uttery destroy and douse the seat...I can hold it.

    I must say, I'm so regular that it's pretty rare that I have to crap away from home. If I do, I wipe the seat down.

    I had no knowledge of said allegation, but I must assure you, whatever the allegation is, it is most likely true.

    I don't use them, but only because anything I have to do that requires more than just a quick shot at the urinal (or tree, depending :D) is done where I know the toilet it clean.

    Same here.

    But if I have to go while I'm out, I cover the seat up. And then I play footsies with the dude in the next stall.


    /poll results need more ladies:p

    Am I seriously the only one who voted "Male - No, I just plop down. I'm awesome"?
    I mean, if there is visible piss or a tower of crap on the seat, then obviously I wouldn't just sit on it. I wouldn't wipe it either, just move on to another stall.

    I'm not worried about catching anything, but knowing how often people miss, I definitely cover.
