Why Do Men Take So Long On the Toilet?

Source Vice



There is a memorable scene in the 2012 film This Is 40, where Pete (Paul Rudd) is caught pretending to use the toilet so he can scroll on his iPad in peace. “I know you’re not actually pooping,” his wife Debbie (Leslie Mann) screams. Pete says nothing and returns to the screen in front of him.

It was only recently, when my own girlfriend commented on the “abnormal” amount of time I supposedly “spend on the loo”, that I began to wonder if all men are destined to devote the majority of their adult lives to using – or pretending to use – the toilet. Or if I just had a lot in common with a fictional character.

1. Hmm...

... I thought women spent more time there... waiting for a woman to use the restroom took forever! I guess that's changed, now.

3. How long does it take to read a comic book

When I was a kid that seemed to be the criteria. My parents weren't always happy.

I used to read books and comics in all sorts of places (bathtub was another one - never nod off under those conditions). Before audiobooks I would be the one walking around the playground engrossed in a book - kind of like today's people with their phones. I am sure audiobooks literally saved my life.

6. Sometimes the bathroom is the one place to get some peace and quiet.

Usually people don't question someone being in there a while.

7. It "should" read "Why do SOME men"

that is just too broad a statement. I have better things to do.
