But why are toilet seats U-shaped in the first place? Was it a random decision or does it actually serve an important purpose? Find out below.
It has a U-shaped seat that allows your backside to sit comfortably while you pee or defecate.
Is it for you to put socks on them to keep them warm? Not really, but that's a pretty funny idea.
First of all, don't even think of removing them and playing with them before properly cleaning the seats.
That's right. The toilet is U-shaped because of several reasons connected to female hygiene.
Because the toilet seat is U-shaped, women and even men can urinate without getting their genitals in contact with the toilet sheet.
Especially if you're urinating in a public bathroom. Always be careful.
Thanks to the U-shaped toilet seat, women can easily wipe their perineal area without having to be in contact with the otherwise dirty toilet seat.
This is the woman's genital area located between her anus and her vulva.
Of course. The male's perineal area is that space between the anus and the scrotum.
Because these toilet seats help in protecting women from possible health issues.
