If you aren't willing to follow through with something asked or required by this poll, simply indicate that you do not wish to answer.

For the next few questions, I'm going to ask you to do a few things that will provide concrete information about how restroom facilities are used, as well as how effectively those facilities serve their intended purpose. The first thing that I'm going to ask you to do is to time yourself the next time you use a public restroom, and record that time here. Select the amount of time that most closely matches the length of time that you occupied that toilet. Answers are in minutes.

If you answered that you didn't feel the need to use the restroom again for more than sixteen hours, how long was it before you needed to use the restroom again?
Ladies, if urinals were installed in your restrooms, would you be willing and or able to make use of them?
I am male
Yes, I would be both willing and able to use them
Yes, I would be willing and able to use them, as long as I remembered to bring along my device.
I would be willing, but doubt I would be able. I don't see how my anatomy would permit it.
I would be able to use them, but I would not be willing to. I'd rather pee my pants than use a urinal!
I would be unwilling, and, as far as I can tell, unable to use them.
I do not wish to answer
Do you think that the addition of urinals to ladies rooms would reduce the lines for them?
Male- Yes. Urinals allow more people to use the bathroom in a shorter amount of time as long as all they need to do is pee.
Male- No females lack the required anatomy to make use of them. If devices to let them pee standing up became more popular, then maybe.
Male- No females will refuse to use them for sanitary and privacy reasons.
Male other
Female- Yes. More toilets means more people getting to use the bathroom quicker. Even if some of us may dislike them for sanitary and privacy reasons, I guarantee we'll use them if we need to pee badly enough.
Female- No. We often have more than one thing to take care of in the restroom, and these things necessitate the privacy of a stall.
Female- No. Using a urinal right next to other people would be way too weird and or embarrassing
Female- No. Urinals are dirty and afford no privacy. We don't want to get an infection from doing that!
Female Other
