We’d think making a deposition comes naturally, but apparently there’s a right and wrong way to do take a dump.

Research has revealed that most of us have been using the toilet wrong all our lives. It was said that we humans should be squatting to do our business, instead of comfortably sitting on the toilet seat.

‘When sitting on the toilet, with knees at a right angle, your puborectalis muscle, the muscle responsible for continence, relaxes only partially. But in a squatting posture, it releases completely.’

Israeli researcher, Dov Sikirov published his findings in Digestive Diseases and Sciences after conducting an experiment, where participants defecate while squatting over a container.

If a bird poops on your arm while you’re walking down the street, you don’t smear it with a paper towel — you go to the bathroom and use soap and water.”

Praeger further illustrates how toilet tissue paper is merely “a psychological comfort, not a true measure of cleanliness.” 

The proper way is actually by using the bidet. Toilet paper would only cause a larger surface area of your butt to be dirty as you smearing waste over it, while a bidet would properly wash it all away.

So the next time you’re having trouble unloading, squatting is your answer!
