PSA: Are you pooping the right way?
Use a stool. This helpful diagram can show you how:



Stanford University has revealed a new study that shows squatting is the proper and recommended way to go to the bathroom. What's more astonishing is that this study isn't new. According to Henry L. Bockus in Gastroenterology, the standard textbook on the subject:

"The ideal posture for defecation is the squatting position, with the thighs flexed upon the abdomen. In this way the capacity of the abdominal cavity is greatly diminished and intra-abdominal pressure increased, thus encouraging expulsion ...".

The reason is because of the puborectalis muscle. This muscle acts as a sling for your rectum and maintains continence. When we sit down on the toilet, the hold on the rectum is loosened, but only partially. In a squatting posture, the hold is completely relaxed, allowing for an easier release of your bowel

...Squatting is what humans (and most animals) have done for thousands of years before the invention of the modern toilet. Ailments such as constipation, hemorrhoids, and appendicitis have increased since the adaption of the modern toilet. Research shows that our bathroom posture plays a bigger role in these ailments than a lack of dietary fiber.

The Science of Shitting

I guess these people are trying to sell you their stools? I wouldn't buy one. A stack of magazines would do the trick, honestly.

I gotta try this shit..........

I've already got a stool picked out for this. It's a mini step ladder that is normally stored in the towel closet, but I'm totally breaking that bad boy out and keeping it right next to the toilet. It's the perfect height to perform the perfect squat.

I'm in the middle of a creamy-tarry shit right now. Just turned to my right to elevate my feet on the tub. It's a tight fit because my junk wanted to poke out, but as soon as I fit my legs up a sticky turd fell out.

Small sample size warning.

There's no greater joy in life than setting up with my laptop on a TV tray in the shitter.

Try that overnight oatmeal recipe NewChief posted and you could point your asshole to the sky and still go all Mount Vesuvius.
