|I wouldn't recommend sitting here too long.|
How long is it okay to stay sitting on a toilet after pooping? Sometimes I will get caught up a game of Candy Crush or Angry Birds while on the toilet and three hours later I realized I’ve already pooped and not wiped at all. Is this safe? Am I going to dry my butt shut if this happens again? -- Allison from Ft. Lauderdale
No you’re not going to dry your butt shut… It would take years for your feces to fossilize and solder your anus shut. And even if that did happen, that’s a popular technique that many cultures who don’t have access to toilet paper utilize to stay clean. Just be warned that it basically creates the effect of a wine cork so when you finally do have to poo it’s like cracking open a bottle of champagne.
In answer to your question, I would say it’s okay to sit on a toilet up to an hour after you’re done, unless you live with a lot of people or are in a public bathroom then it’s more like ten minutes.
