Why do men take so long on the "throne"?

My guy takes at least 20-30 minutes while taking a dump in the restroom. He even takes a magazine with him. Why is this?

  • IDK. I have the same problem. It's a man thing. I just go in and right back out, I mean it's not that hard guys. LOL. I asked him one day can't you smell? LOL Maybe this is a pyramid type question, we may never know the answer!

  • be patient he is reading the instructions

    i believe that hidden in the magazine is the instructions on how to replace the tp roll when empty, and they are studying this. You may be surprised in a year or two (if he is a bright one) and some day you may find a new fresh roll on the despenser

  • I agree with the above. I think it's a man thing. My husband is sometimes in there for 45 minutes. He says he plays solitaire so that he can make sure that it all comes out. I don't get it. I couldn't sit in the bathroom with that smell for that long. Just walking in there when he's done makes me gag!

  • that's their "meditation" time! They figure out the answers to all life's problems there so don't rush him!

  • my ex used to do this, i would yell at him & say "Your not even crapping anymore, why are you still sitting there" and he would say "because I'm reading" how gross is that? You can;t flush the toilet & finish your chapter in another room? Oh, how irritated this would make me. My fiance is not this way. He does his business & gets the hell outta there. 10 min. TOPS.

  • LOL, I don't know either. My DH does this too, haha. We have 2 full bathrooms and we use the guest one to do our "business" since our child is only 14 months. We have some magazines next to the toilet. I actually like reading something while I'm in there, but I don't linger reading an article. I don't want to sit in the smell!
