    Okay, I will admit it: I have never used a urinal in my life. (And, yes, I am a man.)

    To me, it seems like such an uncomfortable thing to do. What I really do not understand is why nearly all men, or at least it seems that way, would choose a urinal over a stall, even when all of the stalls are available. I mean, I suppose it could be that I am gay, but even from kindergarten, I never liked them. I suppose that, if I were on the very verge of soiling myself, I would use one, but not in any other case, even if there was a line.

    That being said, I decided to create a poll to see if I am uncommon as it appears.

    Urinals are faster and more convenient than stalls, so I use them more often.

    The poll can only be put in after you post the thread for some reason.

    To each his own, if you don't like a stall than that's fine. I doubt the fact that you are gay makes any difference. I use either or, no preference.

    Honestly I feel the exact opposite. It bugs me when I see a guy adult or not, choose to walk into a stall to do the exact same thing. I would rather use a urinal because ;

    A. It's more convenient.
    B. I don't wanna have to go and bother shutting a door behind me.
    C. It saves water.
    D. Using a stall is more "louder" and obvious IMO. I don't want everyone to hear me.

    Are people ashamed of themselves or something? It's not like anyone is watching them anyway. I always use a urinal whenever possible. I am gay, and don't think it should make a difference either way. Urinals FTW!

    My step dad taught me that Real Men use urinals. I guess I've never been able to get that out of the back of my head. :(


    and I'm gay. Can we make that part of the poll?

    It's not an issue really, just your preference and being gay has nothing to do with it. I use urinal unless there is none!

    You are as uncommon as it appears. Use the urinal, it also serves as a good beer rest. Gay has nothing to do with anything.

    I don't understand this post at all. You ask why someone would use a urinal instead of a stall, then say that if you were about to soil yourself you would use one, but never otherwise. WHY would you use a urinal if you were about to soil yourself?? That makes no sense.

    But otherwise...what's so weird about using a urinal? In places that have the auto flush, you can do the whole act without touching a part of the bathroom (except washing your hands) so it's even more sanitary. The ONLY reason I could think for not using a urinal is being wary of the thought of someone checking out your junk.

    I don't like the ones that protrude like a foot from the wall. Similar to these fancy ones.

    Peeing standing up is what being male is all about.

    Urinals are an OK substitute for the real deal... a handy bush.

    I think that, if I understand your, rather astringent, objection correctly, I meant that if I had to go to the bathroom really badly, and there was nothing but urinals available, I would resign myself to the urinals. I apologize for not expressing myself more clearly.

    Even gay toilets have urinals ;)

    If i wasn't bursting and a cubical were available i'd choose to do a tinkle there. I'd use a urinal though rather than queue for a cubical, unless i needed to take a dump.

    I agree it's a strainge rational. There is a gay club in my town where the urinals are on a two way mirror, so that every one walking in the corridor outside the toilet can see you. :eek:

    I honestly prefer a tree, to see how high you can go.
    but inside, I would say Urinal. much easier and quicker IMO

    The best invention ever, which apparently helps guys with their aim and reduces some of the cleaning costs:

    :D

    I first recall hearing about them showing up in Amsterdam's Schiphol airport a few years ago. Very practical, the Dutch. ;)
