Yes, All Men.
This post started as a discussion I was having with a friend who was peeing in the sink at his house while on the phone with me, but truthfully, it’s one I’ve had lots of times over the years. The divide between who thinks it’s cool/fine/acceptable to pee in the sink and who is utterly revolted and shocked that anyone would do such a thing, tends to be exclusively down the male/female line. So, all the guys I’ve ever mentioned this to say something like “oh, yeah. I do/have done that.” And all (!) of the women make a face or have 5-10 followup questions about why.
It’s weird! Try it with your friends.
Pissing in the sink, however you feel about it, is super fucking common, though. The sink in my apartment actually sort of looks like a fancy urinal and is exactly the height required for me to step up, flop out, and let go. It’s like they made it specifically FOR me to pee in. I love it.
As part of their very successful content marketing ploy, Dollar Shave Club posts random articles about typically male-oriented things, and covered this very subject in July of last year. They came up with five reasons men piss in the sink (really about 2.5, if we’re being honest), including it’s quieter (that’s true), it saves water (probably true but not so high up my own list), and it’s easier when you’re boned up (I don’t follow this one, because I can’t pee through an erection, and also because mine points up – making the sink an even less suitable place to try and spray it out). But their conclusion, featuring a tweet by @tomcoates, really summed up the truth of sink pees:
Whatever reason you make up for yourself, it’s fun and you should do it.
Our hero for this post is notorious and amazing masturbator Lou Sapphire, who – in this video – gets comfy, pisses in a public bathroom sink, and then bangs out a fast load while making sustained and lusty eye contact with the camera. It’s great and always gets me boned:
This next video isn’t super-relevant to pissing in the sink, but this kid is such a horny little monkey and the audio is so good (and we know I love me some good watersports stuff), I figured I’d stick it in here anyway:
The lesson here: it’s fun to piss in the sink, and you should do it whenever possible. Or, if you don’t have a penis, accept that people are probably definitely peeing in your sink.
