We surveyed 1500 people about the most annoying bathroom habits they’ve encountered – and what they’ll admit to doing themselves – to better understand how to avoid stepping on any toes while sharing a living space. Whether it’s housemates, family members, or even a partner, 95% of the people surveyed said that other people’s bathroom habits annoyed them.
These are the public’s biggest bathroom pet peeves:
The most irksome habits the public will admit to was also illuminating, with many people admitting to some bizarre behaviour:
The workplace can be a hot bed of enduring the irritating habits of colleagues. We asked our participants about the bathroom faux pas they are guilty of and got some very surprising results.
According to our findings:
To better understand our findings, we spoke to sex therapist Nicole Prause, Ph.D., about masturbation at work: “Men and women think about sex frequently, and those thoughts do not stop simply because they are at work. When sexual drive is very high, masturbation to orgasm is likely to reduce sexual distractions during the rest of the day. If a person feels especially distracted by sexual thoughts at work, it is very reasonable to use masturbation to reduce these distractions.”
Technology is another subject our survey explored, revealing some interesting facts about the tech activities we get up to while sat on the throne:
Using a smartphone on the toilet may seem ordinary to the younger generation, but that isn’t true for everyone. Just 30% of people aged over 55 use a smartphone on the toilet, compared to a massive 80% of 16-24-year-olds and 75% of 25-34-year-olds.
James Roberts, Director of Sanctuary Bathrooms, explained the motivation behind the survey: “Everyone has experienced an annoying bathroom habit at work or at home, so it got us thinking about what the worst offences really are.”
“We were most surprised by the number of men who admitted masturbating in the toilets in the workplace. According to the Office of National Statistics, there are 32 million men in the UK workforce, which means over 4.6 million men may have indulged in self-love while on the job.”
