Politicians in Sweden have called for men to pee sitting down when using the Sörmland County Council toilets.

A motion has been put forward by the Left Party, stating that men should be banned from standing up while relieving themselves, according to The Local.

Representative Viggo Hansen hopes the toilets will become genderless as a result of this move, adding to Sveriges Television: "We want to give men the option of going into a clean toilet."

The Left Party claims that getting men to sit down will improve hygiene as there will be less stray urine splashing out of the bowl.

In addition, bladders are apparently emptied more efficiently if the person is sitting down, leading to an improved sex life and less risk of prostate problems.
