Wind and wet dog noses to name two. I have experience with only the first.

brambling, as in picking blackberries from wild blackberry shrubs, and doing ground clearance involving large nettles! Both can be painful.

I'll vote for dog noses, not pleasant! Midges, I thought they would be a major problem but have hardly had a bite in the more sensitive places!

Long skirts and toilet bowls... wore a long circle skirt once and got the hem wet as I hadn't gathererd it up enough before I sat down... since then, prefer pencils as they stay in one place when you need to pee :oops:

Only other peril of shorter stuff is modesty, but that comes with practise as to how you sit :wink:

As for kilts, being asked what the tartan is, or where my bagpipes are, or the inevitable question :roll:

There's a trick with this, and it's one that works with even the most complex and massive of ensembles -- haul the works up in layers and use the final slip as a "parachute bag" to restrain everything else, and tuck the forward hem of the "bag" into your shirt. Voila, no dampness nor mess.

Learn how to sit gracefully and properly and practise that. There's no excuse. Everybody can learn these tactics.

That´s why I prefer to wear skirts with a front fly so I can stand up and pee at the urinal and not use the booth.

Huh? Try lifting the front of the skirt and going over whatever you've got underneath.

Pencil and tight skirts not applicable - Mini-skirts kilts and "A" frames lift and do the loo.

What I find the most bothersome is the back splatter on bare legs if the target trajectory is not correct.
Using the commode is not any better at times but "T" paper is there to fix the aimless splatter.

Still yet the male equipment is the best for draining the center tank ! Old aviation expression - LOL !
"Kilt-On" -or- as the case may be "Skirt-On" !
WHY ?
Isn't wearing a kilt enough?
Well a skirt will do in a pinch!
Make mine short and don't you dare think of pinching there !

What's troubling to me is that presumedly there's the same amount of spatter when wearing trousers and we never notice.

But enough of that, I suppose.

I prefer to avoid having to lift the skirt, more than once I´ve had the flap fall over and ended up with a peed apron. The front fly solves that for me, just my personal preference.

The fly on most jeans skirts is just short enough to get the skirt on, which means you have to lift it, then deal with pulling down your briefs as well. Easier for me to do this in a stall than to subject any guy using the urinal to that image :roll: denim pencil skirts are best as they stay in place at my hips until I'm done :wink:

It's all about the angle of attack. At home I sit. I got tired of having to wipe the bowl or floor. Seems like no matter how much you try there are always a few stray rounds that miss the intended target.

It's basic physics, and there are multiple websites that actually talk about aiming techniques. Here is one of the many.

Avoid the middle man, wear a kilt or skirt.

Of course there are. (grimaces) How else could life be complete?
