To Lezlie Lowe,
Thank you, Lezlie, for your "Pissing contest" article (October 4).
I love it when someone or something shifts a paradigm and you did for me with this discussion of sex and the crapper seat.
Post-piss, as I reach to lower the seat, that little voice in my head has frequently said, "I'm lowering this for her, why can't she raise it for me?" I never, ever considered the numbers until now! As you've pointed out, three out of four times (at least) the crapper is used, the seat will need to be down (i.e. hetero, no rugrats). Seventy-five percent is good enough for me---case closed. Thanks!
