This response in the white towel thread got me thinking --

The battle of the sexes, leaving the seat up or down? I say seat down, cover down, fair for all.

And it just looks better. I visit someone, go to the bathroom and the seat is down. I can't help but visual whoever lives there sitting on that seat. Probably just me but c'mon. These are all people I don't want to see half naked any time, much less doing their business. If you want me to think of you half naked, just stop it!

A related side note, get a split front seat, better in every way unless you weigh a ton.

No bench seats for the toilet. Check! I hate to think of your visual for the homeowner who leaves the lid up on their bench seat toilet. Wink

And FWIW, I'm in the keep-the-lid-down camp. It looks better and, more importantly, keeps any curious cat paws out of the toilet water.

I make it a habit to touch toilets as little as possible. So if it the seat is down when I’m done it stays down. If it’s up it stays up. The cover always stays up.

This.

Plus, it keeps the dog from drinking from the toilet bowl.

My mom raised three boys and she taught us to leave it up as the seat stayed dryer that way.

Now that I am married, the seat and the cover go down.

If you have pets, the cover stays down.

Leave it up and you never have to fill the water bowl.

I can't read about toilet seats without thinking of this episode ("Reverse Cowgirl").

Seat down, cover up.

Always and forever.

It might be a "Florida" thing, but the with the cover down, the humidity will destroy a seat and metal fittings in within months.

I do think the cover down, is more "eye friendly", but c'mon, it's a crapper.

If your spending leisurely amounts of time gazing on yonder bowl, such habit is seen as quite vulgar and course among the more refined and questions the machinations of one's mind.

Seat up when I'm done, seat down when she's done.
No need to overthink it...and I have NEVER visualized the owner of the house perched there when at someone else's house.
That's just weird.

Lid down is the only way a toilet should be left. It's that simple. Now as for women complaining when the seat is left up and they fall in.... should they have not looked first? If we men are supposed to be so considerate as to lift the seat then how hard is it to just check first?

Seriously, I don't see a thing wrong with our dogs drinking from the toilet. We had one who drank there at every chance. Now, among our three, only one visits the bowl occasionally. The only downside is a few drips on the floor next to the bowl. If that were the only mess in the bathroom I had to deal with, I'd be happy.

Flushing the toilet doesn't necessarily eliminate 100% of the feces and urine. Are you good with your pets drinking that?

Yep, that's one legacy of a live-in relationship long, long ago, the toilet seat thing and she got me started smoking cigs. Frown
