BPS Research Digest: Toilet psychology: Why do men wash their hands less than women?
- "... research assistants recorded the facility [urinal or cubicle], and then started a stopwatch when the patron's feet stood relatively still. For the men, the research assistants also recorded the orientation of the feet to gauge the patron's use of the commode (i.e. as a commode or a urinal). When research assistants heard the flushing of the patron's commode or urinal the stopwatch was turned off ... and the duration of the restroom event was recorded."
