i am not a fan of the toilet seat cover, and not the ruffly pink kind that everyone's grandmother has to match the bathmat. they seem like a lot of effort for a quick pee (note: seat covers are generally found only in public toilets, and i would rather risk an obstruction than take an actual poo in a non-residential loo). i know that there are many like-minded bladders out there, who also refuse to "bury a quaker" in a public stall. so who then, are these people that take the time at a restaurant, bar, or airport departure terminal to go through the ritual of removing one from the box, tucking it in place, and then hunkering down for just a quick pee?
i have obviously never used a seat cover for the aforementioned reasons. however, the tactile-sensory issue of having wax proof baking parchment while at the petrol station, or motion sensored shrink wrap at o'hare, clinging to and crackling beneath my cheeks would not induce urethral relaxation. no more than taking a "sit" with damp thighs, after a shower does.
besides, from all this marathon training, the "squat 'n hover" maneuver is simply effortless for my quads of steel.
